I have heavily highlighted hair and experienced a lot of breakage. I use the whole strengthening line from Kerastase. This is not a de tangling treatment as other people have said. It's made to add strength back into brittle hair. I use with ciment thermique after a shower on towel dried hair. This takes away all frizz and dullness. I flat iron or curl my hair once dry and it looks shiny and sleek, not to mention it smells great. Kerastase products are not cheap, but you honestly get what you pay for. If you have any lightener in your hair I would say this is a must have product.
Quite a mixed review for this. I found this did nothing when applied to dry hair to used it after washing. I have very long hair and since I bleached it over a year a go knots are big problem. With this my hair was super silky and easy to brush out. However I had two problems with it. Firstly my hands after went dry and flaky for days afterward, perhaps a silicone sensitivity? And secondly, even though it made most of my hair easy to brush out I always found there to be one or two very bad not that appeared to be gunky and stuck. I presume this was the product clinging to a part of my hair? Its a very pricey product, and although it made brushing my hair after washing much easier I'm not sure its worth the negative points. I would be better of sticking to my DIY detangler. Though I may try it again in the future.
THIS. THIS STUFF. My stylist originally was the one who started using this on my hair, due to the fact that it is really dry and damaged from color processes and also constant flat ironing. Any time she used this product on me my hair always felt so smooth, shiny and not to mention it would actually move instead of staying in one place.
So after a while I decided to pick up a bottle for myself to have at home. I put this only on dry hair before I flat iron it. It's so great, helps protect from heat, and makes my hair silky smooth. Just make sure that you put your finger right in the middle of the pump and push down hard when you pump it out. I use two pumps and it doesn't weigh my hair down at all. This is one of the only kerastase products i've tried and really liked. However, the price tag still sucks. But great product!
First of all, i havent tested this long enough to
For years I have struggled with products that did not work. I didnt expect this product to work either. It actually is a miracle in a bottle. I have fine hair and it did not weigh my hair down. My hair looked so healthy even though i dye, my hair and use straightening irons. I am so happy with this product. Its a miracle in a bottle!!!
My stylist didn't actually recommend this, the shampoo girl did. Too much silicone for my hair. Green pump emptied long before the other. I can't say it was weighty, but it made my hair look flat. Absolutely no body. I only used one pump at a time, so wasn't over-saturating my hair. I wouldn't purchase it again.
So far, so good. Made my hair very soft and shiny. Took off one lippy for the price. Will buy again. ( I use the whole "green" kerastase line for damaged hair- very good stuff)
Aaargh!! This did not do anything for my frizzy curly hair, at all. I was so disappointed, I really had very high hopes for this! The smell was really very nice and I was told that it will keep my frizzy hair smooth, but nope. It kind of made my hair go a bit not-curly-but-not-straight-either and it made it more frizzy than before: I live in the UK and unfortunately humidity is a huge problem as some of you know...I am not entirely sure if this is for curly hair to be honest! To make matters even worse, one of the pumps (the green one) stopped giving me the product before the other ran out, so I was basically using only half of the product after some point (and I mean, nowhere near the end of the tube...) Why can't Kerastase just sell it with one pump and mixed already, is a mystery. I have used the Ciment Thermique which actually works for my hair, so I was very disappointed with the Firbe Arch. Typical thought - products that work everywhere, do not work for me! By no means try it (it's a very expensive try though and I don't think you can get samples) but for me, it was a real waste of money.
Was looking for a product to use on those days that I'm too lazy to blow dry my very dry & damaged (from frequent highlights) hair. Took a chance, even though it was expensive. I've never been let down with a Kerastase product so far and still have not after using this product. Applied to semi dry hair and it smoothed down my frizz and made my damaged ends look healthy. I hear from the other reviewers about the silicone in this product but it worked so amazingly that I don't care. I just tried Living Proof Targeted Repair Cream before this and had to return it. It made my hair more frizzy and dry. So I'm happy that I finally found something to make my hair look beautiful. If you have dry & damaged hair you must try this, it's worth every penny.
Although this is very silicony (hence the second ingredient), as soon as you rub it in your hair it gets absorbed. It feels as if you have no product in your hair, just naturally silkier. My hair was fried after a Japanese Straightening and this made it look and feel a LOT better. The pump is okay, but I do have to use a lot each time, even on my shoulder length hair. Ohh, forgot to mention it smells really nice and fresh, not those sweet TiGi-like smells. BUT, definitely nothing special to differentiate from the rest...to justify the steep price.
EDIT: Broke me out and gave me a rash right where hair touches the skin, only new product I had added. I always breakout with high silicone content.
