Review | KeraCare Overnight Moisturizing Treatment

Monday, 22 June 2015

I've been using a lot of KeraCare products over the last year and the Overnight Moisturizing Treatment(£10.95/115g)* has become one of their products I couldn't do without.


When I first heard of this product the name and the apricot '2' on the packaging had me thinking this was a rinse-out deep conditioner but it's actually more like a moisturiser. KeraCare describes this product as 'a moisturizing nightcap for dry hair' and it really does soften my thirsty strands whilst I sleep. This is one of my favourite KeraCare moisturisers, second only to the Natural Textures Hair Milk. It's a creamy consistency which provides the right amount of moisture without overloading the hair with product.

When I first used this product nightly as directed I didn't notice a huge deal of difference the following day. With regular use over a couple of weeks however, my hair became much softer and easier to manage. As much as I love how much volume my hair gets naturally (as it makes an awesome high bun without any padding) it's cotton-like texture can lead to a lot of tangling and matting, especially at the roots. Even when wearing buns daily my hair (which creates most of the matting issues) when I'm using this product I've noticed a lot less tangling. 


When moisturising I generally split my hair into 2-4 sections (depending on how dry my hair is) and I stick to applying no more than a walnut sized amount of this moisturiser to each section. The product is quite rich and as it's a small tub too I try to use it sparingly. I now mostly use this product in combination with something else to make it stretch further. My typical routine is to use a milk-y product or conditioning mist first and then apply a little of the Overnight Moisturizing Treatment before styling my hair for bed. I keep my hair in place by sleeping in a silk scarf or on a satin pillowcase and this routine has definitely made my mornings smoother and less hairy (pun intended).

Have you tried any KeraCare products?

  1. Hi Lesley, do you prefer to use this than the Root2Tip Triple M Moisture Milk? I swore by the Triple M Milk to moisturise with but have recently found my hair does not stay as moist for as long as it used to... I will look out for the above Keracare mosturizing treatment at the weekend and give it a try.

    1. I still use the Root2Tip Triple M. I just use this as well. The KeraCare OMT works for me as it seals everything in really well x

  2. This is an interesting product. It's like a mix between a moisturizer and an overnight DC all in one.

  3. Sounds like an awesome product especially as it detangles, I am yet to try anything from Keracare.
