This is my go-to shampoo. I will stray from it occasionally because I tend to have product ADD, but I always come back to it. I have fine, color-treated hair. This cleanses my hair without stripping it. It moisturizes my hair without weighing down. I simply love it!

Even though i said i wouldn't buy this product again maybe one day i will, if i ever go back brown! but for my platinum blonde hair this was just too stripping color wise! it does a great job of moisturizing, de frizzing and overall giving you great hair, it just stripped the hell out of my color. . . .not good! but overall i think this is a pretty good safe shampoo.

I bought this shampoo/conditioner combo as a treat to myself about a year ago. I have untreated, dry, long blonde hair. This was my first dip into the high-end hair care product pool and I loved it.
I had Bain Satin 2 and Lait Vital and had never used a product so light and so fine. The scent was nice; nothing too overly chemical. A little dab really does go a long way with this product, both full-size bottles, lasted about four and a half months (I only shampoo my roots).
Now come the cons. Price point aside, even though this is the highest level moisture Kerastase offers, I did not find it to be enough. Once my hair dried, after ever wash, it was quite a frizzy puff ball. I'm not one to use a lot/any styling products in my hair because I find, more often than not, they just it weigh down and disappoint me.
Anyhoo, I find that although the Nutritive line is very high quality, the shampoo/conditioner cause a lot of frizz which with my hair type (fine but I have a lot of it) causes a lot of breakage.
I have have not tried any other products from the Nutritive line but have heard the Masquintense is really good. Personally, I think it would be a better investment.

I've been using Kerastae for about 7 years now and like it. I've used the green volumizing, red for color treated and the clear crystal one that just came out and have not liked them, the Bain Satin 2 has been the best one so far, paired with my Frederic Fekkai hair maks it's perfect. I have long hair that is highlighted, my hair is fine, curly and I have a lot of it. I flat iron and heat treat all of the time and my hair stays looking healthy.

i love this shampoo - the luxurious smell that lasts for days, the softness, the lovely clean feeling, the whole package ... apart from the price ;-) it's an occasional treat, and as such i haven't had any of the problems some regular users seem to have had. i'll keep buying this one as long as they make it :D

This shampoo is great if you dont want or need volume and you dont have your hair coloured. I used it for years until i realised it was washing my colour out ! Also i needed to wash my hair every day which i thought was normal until i tried tigi colour combat shampoo and that kept my colour and didnt make it greasy. Dont buy it because its expensive and must be good try other cheaper brands first, im really happy with tigi now howeer i do use it with kerastase thermique conditioner and that does do a great job!

It's good, not great. I agree with the person below that it's a good brand to use once in awhile, but not continuously. My hair lacked a certain "oomf" with this, but it IS a safe shampoo that I know will never really fail me.

very nice shampoo, nice texture and nice scent. One of the best products of kerastase. Yet continuous use did left me some residue. my personal opinion is that all products of kerastase are not good for condinuous use, you need to change them, with others every wash or two washes. I wouldnt buy again probably, because i did find out that my hair reacts so much better in sulfate free shampoos. OO and dont forget to mention that this shampoo does not help dyed hair to hold their color at all.

All Kerastase cost a fortune here in Russia, but i can tell you that it's totally worth every penny I spent on it! I am in love with the smell of this shampoo, and it gives my hair softness and makes it look healthy. Generally, my hair's condition is closer to normal, but it gets dry at the ends, and this shampoo plus the conditioner from the same nutritive line do a great job with fixing this problem.

I see a lot of mixed feelings on this product. As a stylist in a Kerastase salon I thought i might offer some advice.
I see a lot of people saying that this doesnt lather well, and that they need to add more shampoo. You should actually do the opposite and add more water, which will help you emulsify and preserve your shampoo so you're not wastings handfuls. I use about a quarter size of my kerastase and I have long hair. if you use a lot of styling product and/or dont wash everyday, acheiving a rich lather may be challenging at first because there is more oil and buildup for the shampoo to desolve. Sometimes I will use a little Bumble and Bumble Gentle at my roots to desolve most of my product buildup then rinse and use a nickel to quarter size of my kerastase.
Also, Bain satin 2 is not superduper moisturizing. it is for normal to dry hair. If you color treat, thermal style, ect, you probably need more moisture than this, Look into Nutri thermique, the reflection line, or the resistance line

I used this shampoo along with the Lait Vital for maybe 2 years. At first I loved it, my hair felt so silky and airy. But, I noticed if I went a day in between washings my hair felt dry and dirty. I also noticed that if I used this shampoo for more than 2 weeks without switching up, my hair would feel straw-like even as I was washing it! My hair started falling out in clumps in the shower and my scalp often itched. I never made the connection that it could have been this shampoo. I finally realized that it was loaded with silicones and it was ruining my hair. The dryness was from the silicone build up and I'm sure it was contributing to my hair loss. I have since changed to a premium plant based shampoo and conditioner and what a difference! My hair stays cleaner longer, no more dryness, no more excessive hair loss and no itchy scalp.

I was waiting for that miracle thg to happen with my hair. Previously used kerastase oleo curl and was great but when i switch back to straight hair i switch to this and what a hot mess! clumping upon use and after drying still clumping/some tangles. it weighed my hair down- gets oily really quickly and after one week of used i had to quit as it started giving scalp problems to me.Game over and have since gave this shampoo to someone with exceptionally dry damaged hair

I am nearly through with an 8.5oz bottle of Bain Satin 2. I have long, thick, straight (with body), partially highlighted hair. Normal hair but ends can get dry. I found the Bain 2 line to be just ok. I had used Bain Oleo Relax shampoo as a house guest, and I loved what it did to my hair. It made shiny, smooth, full and soft. Deciding I was a Kerastase convert, I did a bunch of research on Kerastase's site and on MUA, I thought Bain Satin 2 would be the best match and bought my first bottle. This formula left my hair a bit dry and with far less shine. I love the smell. Overall, it's a good shampoo, but it's just not for my hair type. Today, I used Bain Miroir 1 for the first time. I meant to buy Bain Miroir 2, but I figured I'd give 1 a try. So far, very shiny and smooth. Once I've used Miroir a bit more, I'll be sure to write a review. I may have already found my HG in Bain Oleo Relax, but I figured I'd shop around first.

I just got this today and haven't used it yet but I must say this has got to be the weirdest rated product I've ever seen on MUA...one AWESOME, next TERRIBLE, then HG! then another shocking report...will update in two weeks.

I bought this product because I had read online that it's good for color treated hair with highlights. I recently went back to red from a dark brunette (stripped my hair) and then had balayage highlighting done.
The first time I used the shampoo, it was really hard to get a good lather going. I had to keep adding more and more shampoo to my hair. I have really thick hair, so a shampoo that lathers well is important.
After washing out the shampoo, my hair felt dry and was a tangled mess. I had to leave my conditioning masque in for a really long time, just so I could run a large comb through my hair.
Maybe three weeks after using the shampoo, I found it was making my hair feel softer and silkier, and that the colour I got is still fairly bright (we all know reds fade the worst!). Had you asked me a month ago if I was happy with the product, I would have said no, but now I can see the benefits.
This shampoo isn't very moisturizing, so I recommend having a good conditioner and maybe use one of Kerastase's masques once a week. It DOES work well at keeping colours from fading too fast, though. I think anyone who paid a lot of money for a salon colour will appreciate that.
If you have damaged hair, this product takes a while to make a change, but give it a chance. Try it for a whole month and you'll notice a difference!

I've been using this on my long, layered, color-treated hair for about two years now, and I have to say... it's far and away the best shampoo I've ever used. I have thick but fine hair, and (like every other woman out there) I bet I've tried a hundred different shampoos looking for one that won't leave my hair weighted down and full of eventual buildup. This is it. Complete and total HG. It never builds up, it always washes out clean and leaves my hair bouncy, soft, and healthy. Before I tried this I would have told you that all shampoos were the same, regardless of boutique appeal or exorbitant price-- now I know that there really IS a different in quality and performance.

My on-off again relationship with Keratase hair products has spanned across 20 years, as and when I've been able to afford this line. Out of the three Satin Bains that I've tried extensively, this one is the one that has been the most efficacious for me. Kerastae has also recently introduced this product in an 80 mls travel size, while their sample sizes have been reduced from 15 mls to 10 mls. Satin Bain 1 was too frizz-inducing, while Satin Bain 3 gave me the greasy scalp after only a few days. My hair type: Fine, chemically treated and highlighted, lots of it, sensitive, oily scalp and dry ends. The key to understanding how any of the Kerastase bains are intended to work is grasp the whole hair bath concept. As such, I use this as a treatment, adjunct shampoo, in addition to, and in support of, regular, frequent shampoo and conditioner switches and co-washes. As such, I use this every three to four days, mostly as a pre-wash product. For my hair, it takes two rinses, with a quarter sized amount of product. Emulsifies and rinses well. Softens hair. Adds and enhances shine. In addition, surprise, surprise, despite the detergent-like fragrance that seems to be harsh, this does not irritate my scalp at all. The twist-top packaging is not an inconvenience at all. Given the conditioning cleanse that this gives my hair and scalp, this product is a good one. Yes, it's expensive-but it's also on a par with Wen, Alterna and other HE salon brands.

I agree with many of the previous reviewers. This totally dried my hair out to feel like straw. You have to use a lot of product to obtain any kind of lather. It also makes my hair really poofy as well. The lait vital conditioner is also a so/so product as well. I will stay with Bumble and Bumble.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Like many other reviewers here, I found this product to be ineffective after about a month. Leaves my hair looking dry. Would not repurchase.
