Well, I keep coming back to this stuff but man it does awful things to my skin. As much as I absolutely love what Kerastase Bain Satin 1 & Lait Vital (and Elixr) stuff do to my massive curly hair (straight and tame! Amazed!), I really never feel as though I can justify such extravagance, plus the smell is God-awful and I've developed ghastly red cheeks ... never had them before Kerastase.
But ... yeah. It gives me better results than any other conditioner I've ever used. Nonetheless, I'll keep trying other brands as the smell and the price make for an offensive combination.

Very light but surprisingly it's extremely nourishing for my dry coarse hair. It's too expensive for me to repurchase, I'd have to be completely blown away to pay that much for a conditioner. I find I need to use the same amount as any other conditioner as well.

As with the matching shampoo, one of the best but the old lady smell made me return it.

Well this conditioner was a little disappointing to me. It performed just as well as a regular drug store conditioner like v05 or Suave would perform. For the little it did in moisturizing my 4a/b hair, (I was expecting a little slip but there was none) the price was a bit much. I will be using it up until it's gone, but it is definitely not a repurchase item for me. In addition, I was not prepared for the citric smell at all. It wasn't bad....it just wasn't a good one for me.

This product is not horrible but definitely not worth it AT ALL.....I didn't get any stand out results from this and find that many drugstore conditioners would give same results if not better..it's just OK on the moisturizing properties...other then that............. no extra detangling,smoothing,etc

overpriced + overhyped. i don't get any bad reactions from this, but the moisturizing effects are no better than my cheaper conditioners. enh.

I use this conditioner on my long, fine and color treated hair about 1-2x per month. It really conditions and does not weight it down and I have really limp hair to begin with. I also really like to use this on my hair the day before I color. I'll leave it on for about 5-10 min just to make sure my hair is nice and conditioned for when I get highlights. Yes, it is expensive but it is worth it, in my opinion. I like to use it as a deep conditioner so I do get alot of use out of it.

A good consistency and feel and leaves my hair nice for a few hours, but it doesn't feel the same the next day when compared to shortly after use from the night before.

This was a reckless and in retrospect, self-delusional, purchase I made back in the early months of 2009. At the time, I was at the tail-end of my 7 month course of Accutane and was desperate to salvage my once lush, flowing tresses which had been reduced by the medication to something resembling fried straw. I didn't want to believe that my hair really was as dry and damaged as it looked so against the advice of the salesgirl who desperately tried to convince me otherwise, I walked away with this conditioner and the Oleo Relax shampoo instead of something much richer and more hydrating. Please keep in mind when reading this review that my opinion of this product is severely colored by my own inability to accept reality :) and may be an unfair representation of what is probably a perfectly decent hair conditioner. But it is my experience of it, regardless, so here goes:
After the very first use, it left my hair feeling thick and coated with grease. In the three weeks that I used this product, I experienced massive hairloss. I used it in conjunction with the Oleo Relax shampoo (again, not the best choice for my hairtype) so I can't say conclusively if the resultant damage was a solitary or combined effort. My roots felt lank and oily but my ends took on an even more dry and frizzy look and feel. The instructions read: "Distribute evenly from the roots to the ends, for silky, shiny and lightweight hair. Apply to washed and towel-dried hair. Massage through the lengths and the ends. Leave on for 2 to 3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly." Well, I followed these guidelines to the letter and with no improvement whatsoever. The combination of glucides, protides (eh?) and lipides are supposed to protect and restore the hair fibre to its natural supple state.
Here in Malaysia, a 200 ml tube of this hair conditioner retails for RM 75. Most high-end hair salons in and around the Klang Valley carry Kerastase products, and while my faith in the brand has been rekindled by a tentative foray back into the world of overpriced hair-care, I will listen faithfully to the advice of the salesgirls from now on. I do like the packaging as the tube is both user-friendly and idiot-proof (a huge plus in my book!).
Overall, I'd recommend this product to those who don't have any serious hair issues. If you have hair that is well-behaved and in need of a slight moisture fix, then you'll probably love this. If not, there are other products in the Kerastase range that will suit your needs better.

Great stuff. Lightweight yet moisturizing. I use this with Bain de Force and get great results--soft and shiny. My only complaint is that it is stupid expensive, so I'm not sure if I would repurchase. However, if you've got money to burn, I would give it a try.
