Smells AWFUL (I actually hold my breath when I shampoo and condition with this stuff) but detangles pretty well. Still I feel it is very overpriced and can't get over the smell to buy again.

Bought this after getting incredible results with a sample. How disappointed I was with my overpriced conditioner! Thank god I got it at a discount.
The stuff smells like glue! Or some other unbearable industrial plastic-based paste. Not appetising.
As far as I'm aware this doesn't do other conditioner I've tried doesn't. It's certainly not heavy and doesn't leave any residue but it also isn't anything special. Plus the smell! I can't get over the awful smell.
Definitely won't be wasting my money on this again. Must learn not to base purchases on flukey samples.

This is a very good and basic conditioner. Do I think it does anything particularly extraordinary? No. But, I trust the Kerastase name, and I use all of their products from start to finish (including styling).
One thing I have learned about this conditioner is to not be conservative on the amount you use. It seems to have much better softening and conditioning qualities if you apply a healthy amount (i.e. two or three almond size dollops). I leave it on for a good three or four minutes and sometimes throw a shower cap over it for good measure.
Works well with Bain Satin 2 as an everyday combination.

This is for lait vitale 1 (normal to slightly dry hair).
The hairdresser sold me this saying it was the lightest conditioner in the range. I have fine hair so it can get weighed down easily, this is far too heavy for it. I just use a very small amount on the very ends of my hair, it does leave my hair shiny however I need a product I can use about halfway up my lengths not just the very ends. Very strong scent to it.
I wouldn't buy it again it's just too heavy for my fine hair.

I had high hopes for this conditioner because my hair is long, color treated and tends to frizz. I have heard that this conditioner is great so I sucked it up and paid the hefty price for it. Well, I really don't think that this conditioner is worth the money. It did not do anything for my hair that drugstore brands don't do. In fact, my hair is a real pain in the butt to comb out after I use this. I have to put a leave-in conditioner just to get the tangles out. I would not purchase this product again.

Got some BAD bottles on Ebay- beware! LEAVES HAIR LIKE STRAW. Nothing like the real thing.
The REAL STUFF:
I really like Kerastase's Lait Vitale. I wash my hair daily & I would say my hair is pretty normal. I actually (finally) just grew it out: I had highlighted and/or dyed it since age 16 (and so it was fried at ends and quite oily at root- SO happy that's over!) I have only used this since I've gone 'au naturel.' And so far I love it- despite the price- it makes my baby-fine light ash brown to 'blondish in the summer' hair so silky, soft and flouncy I can barely stand it :)
I tend to use Kerastase's Lait Vitale with their Oleo-Relax shampoo (another fave) or with Phytovolume or Phytocitrus shampoo- among (cough) many others.
I recently ran out of Lait Vitale and found that my hair frizzed out without it even though I only was using it 2-3 times a week. Not sure how exactly it lasts through multiple (2-3) shampoos- or even if it does- but I will say that for me this conditioner makes a beautiful difference. I do only use it when I need something 'heavier.' And, of course, I have other shampoos and conditioners to which I am devoted- they cover every surface of my shower!
This is an HG for me. I also use Hayashi's 911, Phytobaume, Rene Furturer Okara, and sundry others. And don't get me started on shampoos- for I'll surely end up in a lather :)

My usual complaint about Kerastase products is that they tend to be too heavy for my hair and I have to switch to something lighter occasionally while using them. Well this is light by definition and it works for me. I have rather healthy, hovewer frizz prone hair and this conditioner is basically just right for my type of hair. It helps to tame down the frizz, does not weight the hair down, adds some shine and managebility and helps to keep my hair healthy. Nothing overly amazing but I will consider repurchasing.

I have thick, heat damaged, straight, frizzy hair and find that this just doesn’t give it the level of moisturisation it needs. Might be great for an oily / fine haired girl / guy, but definitely not for me.

There are two types of Lait Vital on the market; I use the one for normal to slightly dry hair. I like to use it on days when my hair doesn't need a lot of moisture, so its kind of a summer conditioner for me- just to keep the lengths and ends soft and silky. The smell is nice, kind of baby powder-y, and very strong when you first apply it, but it dissipates after rinsing. I think this is an excellent conditioner as long as you're not looking for heavy duty moisturising; this isn't for very dry hair, nor does it promise to be. As far as I remember, it doesn't have proteins in it either, which is good for me. I really like this. I took it away with me to a music festival over summer; I only wanted to take one conditioner as I brought my Kerastase Soleil and Bain Miroir shampoos, and my Joico silver shampoo. Lait Vital kept my hair shiny and fuzz- and tangle-free. I definately recommend.

I find this to be one of the most overrated products. It does a very average job of detangling and moisturising my hair. My hair is quite smooth and straight, so it wouldn't be too difficult a job to condition. Which makes me think that this conditioner can't possibly do a decent job on less managable hair, i.e. frizzy, curly or chemically treated. I ended up using large quantities to compensate, but still the results were below average.
My advice is, don't get hang up on the brand, there are so many better conditioners to try, e.g. Bumble&Bumble Super-Rich hair conditioner.

I don't find this to be a bad conditioner, I just don't feel like its the best out there either (nor worthy of its high price). I use this in conjunction with the Kerastase Bain Satin 1 shampoo. When I first started using this, my hair was badly damaged and dry from daily heat styling and highlighting. I really didn't feel like this made any difference to my hair at this point, which was still straw-like after I used it. This was more my mistake than the conditioner's though, I just needed a more intense product at that time.
I then stopped using this conditioner, and after about a year I decided to use it up along with the shampoo. My hair is in much better condition now, and therefore responds a lot better to this product, which leaves it smooth and silky. Even so, after I have used up this conditioner I will not be repurchasing. I just can't stomach it's strong fragrance, which hangs around all day; I prefer much lighter scents. I also can't justify spending this amount of money on a conditioner when there are many comparable ones out there for a better price.

Just for the record - my bottle says Lait Vital Nutratif. And I use this 3-4 times per week after shampooing my fine, color treated, slightly dry hair. It is a good quality conditioner and I supplement its usage with Kerastse Masquintense Fin which is a HG product for me.
Yes, Virginia, Kerastse is mucho expensivo, but you get what you pay for in this case. The products are made by L'oreal - but they are very, very good and they WORK. I recommend it for dry hair people!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
this is a nice conditioner, i have long thick straight hair and this leaves it soft and light weight. Not the most conditioning conditioner but my hairs not that dry. I have very sensative skin and this does not irritate me at all. But I dont like the smell and it is too expensive because it hasnt lasted that long, will stick to redken.

I did like the texture of this conditioner, how silky it left my hair, and the lovely "I just stepped out of the salon" smell. However, I have a LOT of hair, and I had to use a LOT of this product, so it turned out to be much too expensive. A 200mL bottle lasted me less than a month. Also, I wish it had a flip top instead of the screw cap. I'll stick with my cheapo drugstore brands instead.

I bought this together with the Bain Prevention shampoo after the hairstylist recommended me.This one smells ok and it really conditions my hair pretty well.The downside is that it is too pricey but it works ok for me.If i have cash to spare,i might buy it again.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
First off, I won this as part of a Kerastase gift set, hence why I tried it.
Secondly... I love the smell, and I love the texture of the conditioner, but I can't see it justifying the price of it. I'll stick to my Thermasilk (cheaper), that's just as effective.
I also hate how the productcomes out, I hate having to fiddle with the caps on the Keratase products. But in general, not a bad product, it conditions my hair, does what it says it's going to do.. but in the end, it's just a very very expensive conditioner.
It also felt a bit heavy on my head afterwards.. I'd rather use Bumble & Bumble Defrizz after my regular Thermasilk shampooing and conditioning to keep my hair soft and great.

This conditioner is really great. I have a long normal/dry hair. It leaves my hair sooo moiturized!!! It also smells great. I love it
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This smells great! It doesn't give enough moisture, thoe, and my hair isn't really that dry. I need really mutch of it to se it work and to get a little softening effect at all, so it's really expensive and only lasted with me in 2-3 weeks. Maybe good for a very normal hair thoe, *lol*.

Why do all Kerastase conditioners have to stink so bad? Their shampoos are great and all have pleasant, unoffensive scents - but their conditioners/ masques in my experience smell horribly. Their conditioning properties are ok - but not worth having to walk around with the yucky strong chemical smell in your hair all day long. Plus they are very expensive ~ $38 for a regular size tube.

My hairdresser always uses this conditioner on me at the salon and I always loved the results, so I finally caved in and bought it myself. I love it. It's perfect for my type of hair, which is straight and fine and breaks easy. It's not heavy at all, very lightweight. It's definitely not for people needing a lot of moisture. I really like the smell. I had to take off one lippie because of the price but would definitely buy again.
