This is for the Chroma Reflect Enhancing Milk - same range but in a squeezy bottle. It almost conditions my hair too well. The smoothness rapidly spreads up my hair when it is dry despite only applying it to the ends. It may be because my hair is fine and doesn't have much colour in it. It makes it quite limp and lacking in volume - really not good with pieces of hair around the face - who wants rats' tails? Is it too much to ask for hair that is conditioned and simultaneously has volume??
The packaging could be in a thinner plastic bottle so that it can be cut with scissors to get the last of it out.

I don't understand this product. I buy this in conjuction with the shampoo, yet the conditioner only lasts me 1/2 the time of the shampoo. I have long below the shoulder hair and only use conditioner on my ends. My hair is fine, and I don't have a lot of it, but it takes about 4-5 pumps for me to be able to run my fingers through my hair after shampoo and conditioner. When I first use this product, it makes my hair look fantastic. I always get compliments on how great my hair looks. However, 2-3 weeks later, I feel like I build an immunity to this shampoo/conditioner set and it just looks average. Once I switch up my product for a month and go back to this, my hair looks great again. The conditioner is so darn expensive, and it doesn't last long. Can anyone recommend a great conditioner to go with the bain mirror for my fine, color treated hair?

...I wasn't quite sure what to rate this product as i think i am using it wrong... Does anyone know what 'lasts upto 5 shampoos mean'?
Does it mean u don't have to use the product in 5 days?
Wouldn't this be classed as a mask if it's 'leave in?'

Horrible. I normally buy expensive products for my color-treated hair, assuming they are better. No longer! This was just terrible. As a previous poster said, it didn't even feel like I had conditioned my hair. A waste of money. If I get time I will return it, but I've no interest in even finishing out the bottle.

This is one of those items that seems to do absolutely nothing for my blond (highlighted and color-treated hair). Absolutely nothing, so much so that it feels like I've not even applied a conditioner. Perhaps my hair is too long to benefit from it, short of dumping an entire bottle onto my scalp.

This was my least favorite Kerastase conditioner so far. It didn't detangle very well and I had to use a handful just to get it distributed through my short fine hair. The combo of this and the Chroma Riche shampoo made my hair a dry mess so I returned them.

This is a very nice, light conditioner from Kerastase. It is in their Reflection line (purple) and is designed for use on color treated hair. Don't let the lightness of this conditioning milk fool you. It is very effective and is excellent at moisturizing and de-tangling. For best results pair this with one of the purple Bain Miroir shampoos. The entire Reflection line gives wonderful shine, hence the name.

I really like this. I recently had my bra-strap length hair cut to around chin length and I wanted to get a new conditioner that wouldn't be too heavy. I use one pump and concentrate it on the ends/mid length as much as possible and smooth the rest around my scalp. Once I grow my hair back I think I will use 2-3 pumps of this stuff (seems like a little goes a long way).
It rinses out easily, and leaves my hair feeling light and soft...not weighed down at all, which was exactly what I was looking for! Once hair is dry it looks shiny, and is soft and manageable. I also love the pink packaging!

I love this light conditioner for my color treated hair.
It's a great conditioner for every day use.
I think you will need an heavier weekly treatment if you have some damages with hightlights or color.

First let me say that I am a HUGE fan of the Bain Miroir/Chroma Reflect line from Kerastase. I have used them for the past few years. They provide the best shine and silkiness of any shampoo/conditioner combo for color treated hair. The smell is really pleasant and not too perfume-y. Some specialty shampoos have far too much scent and make me sneeze all the time!
OK, that being said - the Lait Chroma Reflect was completely useless for me. It worked ok at first but then I seemed to need more and more to get the same effect. I wash my hair every other day. Once a week I used the Chroma Reflect Masque and LOVED the results from that product.
Very soon, I was running out of the Lait much more quickly than the shampoo or the Chroma Reflect Masque. It is so expensive that I started to be quite miffed.
Ultimately, I cut out the Lait altogether. I used the Chroma Reflect Masque as my conditioner. Most of the time I use only a bit of the Masque and leave it on for 2-3 minutes. Once a week, I use it as an actual treatment - using more and leaving it on for 10 minutes.
The results cannot be argued with. I am constantly getting compliments on my hair. I have recommended these products to friends but they balk at the price. I don't blame them. I have learned to budget for these pricey products and find deals online. They are, in my opinion, worth it.

I've b een using this product for about 2 months now in conjunction with the Bain Miroir 1 shampoo. I'm a believer. It's not a heavy conditoner, in fact I'm not sure I would call it a conditioner - it's more like a finishing treatment. I use 4 pumps for the medium long hair concentrating on my ends first then combing through leaving on for 2-3 minutes while I finish showering.
I was a faithful user of Frederic Fakkai for years, but his is my choice now. My color treated hair is soft and shiny like my youth.
I will be repurchasing but this stuff lasts a lng, time, you do not need much at all to get the benefit.

I love this conditioner. The smell, the way it makes my hair feel. everything about it! And the smaller size doesnt bug me because you dont need much of it. It makes my hair shiny, soft and smell yummy!

This made my hair so limp and greasy. I couldn't even think of skipping a day between shampoos. Overpriced and not that great. It also left buildup on my hair rather quickly

Yup, it's pricey and the bottle seems small, but you don't need to use much for a great every day lightweight conditioner. I can't use heavy conditioners regularly or else my fine color-treated hair is limp. After I first color it I use deeper conditioners and masques to get it back in shape after the drying coloring process. After a couple of weeks however the heavier conditioners only weight my hair down. The Bain Miroir shampoo and this conditioner are what I use for long-lasting shine and body. They never disappoint.

So I really like this line from Kerastase. I've recently decided to go a light brown shade after being platinum blonde for years. My hair is in a bit better condition since changing to dark, so I decided to try some new products that weren't so 'heavy'. This is a very light feeling conditioner but it is effective. Gives good 'slip' and shine and is decently moisturising. My gripe is that it only comes in a 4 oz bottle and the shampoo in an 8 oz! I like a lot of conditioner :) They probably want you to alternate with the masque, which I haven't purchased yet because it is quite expensive.

I have been using this shampoo in combination with Kerastase Bain de Force. Although they are from different kerastase lines, the Ph balance is the same and it's perfectly fine to use them together. My hair is long, dry, and brittle from being chemically processed. While the bain de force has given more strength to my hair, this conditioner has helped to make it appear shiny and healthy looking with less frizz. I normally have VERY oily roots and have never used conditioner on them. This conditioner is light enough to put all over, including my roots.
The positive is that this conditioner is effective yet light. The negative is that I need to also use a conditioner a bit thicker and heavy for my ends (the bottom 2-3 inches of my hair.) So, after I rinse out the Lait Chroma Reflect, I put on a dollop of heavy conditioner on the ends, wait 5 min, and rinse that out. My conditioning combination technique gives me perfectly conditioned hair from root to end.

Not a conditioner, not a treatment - not sure what this is. I tried it on my long, fine and slightly bleached hair and it did... absolutely nothing. May be for darker hair that can get a shine??

Seems like I'm the only one who likes this conditioner... :) It works well with the Bain Satin 1 for my hair (highlighted, with dry ends). Doesn't weigh it down either.

Bought this product especially for my holidays as a specail treat for my hair! What a huge disappointment. Did nothing for my hair. It had a nice smell but no shine whatsover. Other cheaper brand names were miles better. This product is also sold at hairdressers as a professional product - Does not live up to its claims. Toni & Guys(Hairdresser shop product) is miles better.

i bought this product to use in conjuction with Kerastase Bain Miroir Shine Enhancing Shampoo. at first i was skeptical because (A) the conditioner is half the size of the shampoo and (B) normally, i use hydrating shampoos, not shine enhancing ones. but after a bad experience w/ another brand and the INSTYLE review, i thought "heck, why not."
so glad i did. at first the product is bit misleading cuz of the small size but seriously girls (and guys), you really don't need that much. not really sure how it works but i only need 2-3 tiny squirts to condition my thick shoulder length hair. i just leave the conditioner on for a couple of minutes and rinse and voila! good to go. my hair is beautifully conditioned, no residue or buildup, oh sooooo soft. and yes, i do definitely notice a tad more shine.
my only gripe with this product is the ridiculous price. but hey, if it keeps performing & i'm gamefully employed...
update: ok - this conditioner was too light. on my second bottle and my hair is sooooooo dry! reducing lippies.
