Using this, along with Ciment Anti-usure, destroyed my hair. I can't be sure which it was, because I stopped using both after a month, at the same time.
My hair went stretchy. Seriously. It would break so easily, I couldn't even comb it. I was scared I was going bald. I have very very fine hair, so I guess it was just too drying for my hair type. Never again for me.
I really hate this shampoo! It doesn't even clean your hair, but just leaves it feeling filthy and gross. I don't know why my hair hates it so much, but I'll never use it again.
I love this shampoo!!! I am 20 years old with a normal amount of medium density, wavy hair. My hair has always had a habit of falling out a bit, but in the past year my hair kicked this habit into overdrive, as my hair grew weak and began breaking off entirely too frequently. Needless to say, this loss of hair through breakage was effecting my overall volume and made my hair seem more and more flat over time. Since using this bain de force and anti usure i have seen significant decrease in hair loss. What was once clumps of hair every shower and brush is now 3 hairs at the most! Amazing.
Another benefit i have noticed about this product is the overall manageability and behavior of my hair. I am a person who used to AVOID brushing my hair because doing so would cause mass poofyness and a lack of definition in any waves i had. It has bee 2 months since i began using these products and i no longer fear brushing my hair. In fact, I now find brushing my hair a rather enjoyable experience, it is simply something i have never been able to do before wihtout looking like a ball of fluff.
I have never been so impressed by any hair products. I love this line so much that i intend on purchasing other lines for myself as well as my mother. I recommend this to everyone I know who is serious about their hair.
** I will say, while my hair does behave significantly better and displays an overall improved texture, shine and softness are a bit lacking. It is not enough to break my views on this product, but rather purchase a leave in conditioner or alternative conditioner to alternate or even a masque. **
i purchased this the conditioner, the heat styling one and the volume mouse and i love them.My hair is def in better condition from using this brand.am def going to keep on buying it when i run out
Lovely, gentle shampo. Worked great on my dry, medium-fine, colored hair followed up with Ciment Anti-Usure for a condish and Ciment Thermique for styling. My favorite Kérastase shampoo.
I have the 250ml (8.5 fl.oz) bottle of this product. It is intended for weakened and damaged hair (Erosion Level 1-2). Here is a link to the Kerastase website to identify your level of hair erosion: http://www.kerastase.com/sites/_en/_ca/minisites/force/diagnostic.aspx
This shampoo and conditioner (which I will review separately) are my favourite Kerastase products, out of the six I have. Before I began using this a week ago, I did not think a shampoo could make a noticable difference in the appearance and condition of my hair. I have fine, blond, shoulder-length hair and I thought this would be too heavy for my hair type. It definitely is not. I can even go an extra day without shampooing when I use this product; my fine hair does not look greasy the next day after washing. I do shampoo, condition and heat style my hair everyday even though I should not.
This shampoo is creamy but light at the same time. It is truly a luxury each time I use it. I wet my hair until it is well saturated, dispense a loonie-sized amount (Canadians will know what I mean) and lather my hair. I let the shampoo sit in my hair for 1-2 minutes before rinsing out in order to infuse my hair with all of the reinforcing and resurfacing benefits. I condition my hair with the complimenting treatment (conditioner). My hair is easier to comb out after I have used this shampoo, thus preventing more breakage. After I blow dry my hair (using other Kerastase products which I will also review - Ciment Thermique), it feels so silky and looks incredibly shiny, but not weighed down. I would highly recommend this shampoo to anyone who heat styles, colours or highlights their hair.
Excellent! I pair this with the masquintense for fine hair and the results are fab. I wasn't crazy that this contains SLS (my scalp usually hates sulfates) but I haven't had any issues yet, so I will continue to use. This is creamy and thick so you only need a teeny bit. I have used this with ciment, but not crazy about that combo so I will try another KS cond. to go with it. Highly recommended for color-treated, baby fine wavy hair!
I really love this shampoo! I took a 5 hour Kerastase class today about all of their products and was given this as a sample.
It is great for hair that has been overly chemically processed. Bleach, dye, perms, chemical straightening.. etc. It contains a massive amount of protein for the hair which it needs to re-strengthen the fibre. It left my hair cleansed but full of body and shine... and my hair is very damaged from highlights. One thing the representative in the class noted is that you need to be using another product at least once a week that will add moisture to the hair. (Any Kerastase product that has orange packaging will add moisture.) This only provides protein, and if your hair is not chemically damaged it will be too much protein and make the hair feel like straw. It will not repair heat styling damage, for that I would look for any product that has the word "thermique" in it, specifically nectar thermique.
Sorry for my technical speel, just thought I would pass on what I learned! Overall great shampoo for chemically damaged hair! What a difference!
I was asked to use this product along with oleo relax masque and elixir ultimate by ma hair dresser on ma supremely weakened hair which had started to break... But the reason why this shampoo didn't work was that the other two products I used were causing heavy build up which this shampoo was unable remove .it's an impotent shampoo loaded with chemicals which was leaving ma hair oily and dull...it also contains sls, so does dove or herbal essence ... So this shampoo is overated ... I have recently switched to other less chemically harmful shampoos which are performing better and are much milder than this one....
First, admittedly more often than not I like the products by Kerastase, so maybe I am biased. I got this and the Ciment Anti-Usure (not sure about the spelling) as well as the equivalents from Redken (the Extreme series) after having mis-treated my hair with highlights for too long a time. IMHO the Kerastase products blows the Redken products of out the water. The shampoo leaves my hair clean for a long time (I can wash my hair every third day with it still being fresh should I want to with this shampoo provided that I do not use a lot of styling products). It has a very pleasant scent that does not compete with my perfume. The tendency for individual strands to break has reduced a lot. A little goes a long way, so I expect that by the time I finish this bottle I will not need to buy a new one as I no longer mistreat my hair in the same way...
