I LOVE this shampoo. I use it in combination with the conditioner and serum, purchased in a special offer pack for £30. I have long, fine hair that tends to be greasy at the roots and dry at the tips. This shampoo has transformed my hair, it looks beautifully smooth and best of all is falling out less! I still have trouble making it past one day after shampooing, however I am yet to find a product that can do that for me.
Like the girl below, I don't know what to say about the shampoo. I have sort of the same results.
I ran out from my Fibre Architecte Shampoo and my stylist told me to try this one because I have dry hair and stuff and that I would do wonders for my hair (Later, I made some research and found out that this shampoo was "designed" for long hair... which is not my case, my hair isn't very long). I bought the one for thick hair. Texture is very light, seeing-trough, smells nice, like flowers or something.
First time I used it, I thought it was going to be my best friend ever. Really, I got into the shower and after applying the product into my hair, even soaking wet my hair felt soooooooooo soft, and it made it shine amazingly.
But after almost a month of using the product I'm not so sure it's even close to be my friend (haha). I have quite damaged hair, so I need to keep as hydrated as possible, which this shampoo does sometimes, and some others simply does not.
I have super straight hair, and I NEVER HAD TROUBLE WITH FRIZZ BEFORE! not even when I permed my hair curly! And since I started using this, I look like MUFASA! And it makes my hair shiny but when I touch it it feels like STRAW!
So, this shampoo really let me down, which is annoying for it was quite pricy ¬¬ and now I'll have to finish the whole bottle. I really can't wait to go back to my Resistance shampoo :(
I am not sure what to think of this shampoo. It makes my hair feel coated, smooth, stick straight and rather limp. By the end of the day my hair is separating and not good looking.It also makes the ends of my hair straw like and tangled. I bought Oleo Relax shampoo after this and have much better luck with it. My hair looks shiny with Oleo Relax, with body and better hydrated. My hair just does not like Bain Cristalliste. Sadly.
It seems to me, by reading all these reviews that this product works only for a small percentage of hair type. I myself have long, fine and uncoloured hair which is naturally straight. This shampoo works great for me and does exactly what it says it will do if not more. My hair was noticeably shinier and less dry after just one wash! The scent is very light and fresh, not overpowering like Herbal Essences shampoo. The hefty price tag (I paid $42 Canadian) is worth it if it works for your hair/scalp type! Maybe ask for a sample at the salon (I purchased mine at Holt Renfrew Salon) first before committing to the full size product. Will buy again! :)
This shampoo is horrible. It contains Salicylic Acid as an ingredient, which I am all sure we know is usually used to treat acne and exfoliate the skin. My hair was dry and in nowhere near as good of condition as I started with and I started to shed while using this in conjunction with Masqueintense. I was horrified at the price and the results. Used about 5 times and decided it was pulling more hairs out of my head in the tub. Will never repurchase.
I found this made the ends flyaway and dry with a lot of static while the roots were coated and slippery with a lack of bounce.
I don't feel that this was a good investment and it will now sit unused in my bathroom cabinet.
My hair type is fine although there is quite a lot of it, it is long with a tendency to oily roots and dry ends and it is uncoloured.
- naturally curly
- frizzy w humidity
I ended up switching from the Oleo-Relax (awful) to the Bain Cristalliste for fine hair ... amazing. Smells fantastic, my hair is smooth, shiny, stronger, light, feels clean. Love it. Up there with my favourite shampoos - it might take the lead but I've just started using it so I'll wait a bit to say its actually the best.
Well i was at shop looking for new shampoo and conditioner when i come across this.
I normally use only salon products and moving around the brands Redken and Kerastase. I tried nearly all from those two brands. I also used Pureology and Bonacure by Schwarzkopf recently.
OK so ones i come home with the Cristalliste line by Kerastase then i see the bad reviews on MUA about it. So i was quite sure i wont like it.
After i nearly finish the s**t i was using Redken Time Reset ( one of the worst i ever tried ) i start this and i am quite surprise as i DO LIKE IT !!
Actually this line ( shampoo and conditioner i am using ) is really nice to my hair. Makes my hair very soft and quite full ( my hair is fine ).
The only thing i notice is that this wont help with frizz. I normally have this problem anyway but always fix this with Oscar Blandi Olio de Jasmin.
So i dont dislike this line and maybe will buy again sometime just for change.
Shocked looking at the low rating of this poo, I had to add my opinion. I have long, fine and slightly wavy highlighted blonde hair. Thin hair, but a lot of it. This shampoo was actually the cheapest out of all the Kerastase range, so I tried it thinking why not. I usually love Kerastase shampoos, they suit my hair and scalp (especially Specifique and Resistance range). This poo left me pleasantly surprised: my hair was left light, not greasy at the roots but not extremely dry at the ends (although since highlighting my long hair for over 10yrs I definitely need a conditioner or some sort of a treatment for dry ends with any shampoo). Smells lovely and fresh, yet not overwhelming and hair looks extremely natural, with movement and easy to comb through. Does exactly what it says.
I was SO excited to try this as I am a Kerastase junkie. I have long, curly, highlighted, fine blonde hair that I only wash a few times a week, then blowdry and curl. It's very damaged but Kerastase and Shu products keep it looking healthy. I tried everything in the Cristalliste line, and it was all bad. Based on the description on the Kerastase website, I thought this would give my hair some moisture without weighing it down -- exactly what my hair needs. It did not do that at all, and made my hair look and feel like straw. It does not moisturize in the least. It does smell good, and the pink packaging is right up my alley, but the product itself is terrible and it's really expensive. No thanks - these go back.
