This is my third Kerastase shampoo that I have tried, and it's not the right one for me. I've written reviews on the other Kerastase products. Bain Miroir is still better than most shampoos out there, however. I've got thick, partially highlighted, long hair, and I need something that is more moisturizing. To be fair, I thought that I was buying the Miroir 2 which would have given me more moisture. The smell is nice and not overpowering. A bit like roses. I prefer the Oleo Relax shampoo, still. I think that my hair was shinier and softer with the Oleo Relax.

I purchased this product on the basis that on the whole, the reviews were promising and that my hairdresser advised me to start to use a better quality shampoo.
My hair is colored, fine, and prone to being oilier at the roots and dry on the ends.
The shampoo is pretty concentrated and I used the recommend amount. I noticed that once I had rinsed it out, my hair felt a bit squeaky and not in a good way. I had to use a fair amount of conditioner to make it feel like it usually does.
After I had blow dried it and did all the stuff that I normally do to make it look good, it felt thinner than it had ever done. I am not sure that it has improved the texture and it doesn't look any shinier. It maybe that my kind of hair needs a bit more silicon on it to weigh it down. I have given the shampoo to my daughter.

This shampoo is ok, but I'm not sold. I mean it's not worth the money at all.
The good things about it...
It's very creamy and pleasant to use and hair feels soft and looks very shiny and healthy.
The only complaint about it (besides the price) is the smell. For such price tag I would expect a more distinctive and appealing smell....
A little goes a long way but still... it's way too expensive.

This is the only shampoo that I've EVER used that made a noticeable difference in my hair. I have shoulder-length, very fine/thin, dryish dyed hair (light brown -> light auburn), which is flat and dull on its own. With this shampoo, it's incredibly soft, noticeably shinier, and has absolutely no flyaway. It's very smooth. For my hair type, it's the perfect level of moisture, and I haven't noticed a difference in ends v. roots, or itchy/flaky scalp.
The smell is inoffensive, but not fabulous to me--obviously that's a personal preference. I really wish that it had a flip-top; I think I would use less of it that way. The price is definitely high (I paid $54 including shipping for a liter bottle), but my hair is so thin, I don't need a lot, and the bottle will probably last me a year washing every 2-3 days. I will say that it's supposed to be for "normal" hair, and my hair is on the dry side, so if you're normal to oily, this will probably be a bit much for you.
I would definitely re-buy and am now considering the matching conditioner (Chroma Reflect Milk) and Kerastase styling products

I like this shampoo, not love. I have dry-normal hair that's japanese straightened and I have a moderately sensitive scalp. I found that this shampoo lathers well, smells good, rinses clean, doesn't leave residue and doesn't irritate my scalp. I have noticed an improvement in the smoothness and softness of my hair so I would give this product a 5 but it's just so expensive. = ( I admit I only shampoo 3 times a week and switch off between 1 other cleansing shampoo so it lasted me about 5 months.
I will probably purchase this again. The other shampoo I used and like was Pureology Hydrating Shampoo- I like the Kerastase better because it makes my hair softer.

I have long, very thick hair which is in very good condition. it is naturally a light red/brown but coloured to a honey blonde.
No matter what kind of state my hair is in - dirty, full of product after a night out, unbrushed, sunbaked, over-straightened - this shampoo stands up to it. I can literally wet my unbrushed hair under the shower, massage it into a lather and then rinse and all product and tangles seem to rinse down the drain with it.
Leaves my hair with a lovely shine, is kind to my colour, smells gorgeous and the packaging looks great in my bathroom. Its bloody expensive but worth every penny - especially great after a colour when hair can be a bit dryer. LOVE!!

I have straight fine hair (lots of it), and it made the roots extremely oily and the ends very dry! I also found that when I tried to style my hair with a curling Iron it did not hold the curl at all! I was not impressed with this product despite all the rave reviews. I am going to try the Bain Soliel since i heard that one basically protects your hair color as well and makes hair more manageable.

this works well, but it smells terrible. the cheap-drugstore-perfume smell is really overpowering in the shower as well as out. i have a half-full bottle that has been sitting in my shower for years now as i just can't deal with smelling like that day to day!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Love this shampoo! Smells heavenly and works very well with the masque which I use in place of a daily hair conditioner!
Bought the huge salon size bottle from Singapore and that huge bottle can last me for more than half a year of daily hair washing!
After I finish this, I am looking forward to try the Chroma Riche Shampoo next! Hopefully it is just as good, if not better!

I'm in the minority here. After years of on and off using the Bain satin range, I thought I would give this a go as the summer had started to take it's toll on my coloured hair and I fancied something to give it a bit more shine. This product gave me dandruff and even a few spots on my scalp. I switched shampoo for a while to see if it would make a difference and sure enough as soon as I started using a different shampoo, my hair went back to normal.
Today I tried the Bain Miroir again and the dandruff is back. I didn't care for the smell much either. Will go back to Bain Satin.

I love how this shampoo always makes my hair shiny and smooth.
It's not foaming shampoo, but it does seem to cleanse pretty good.

I have been using the Bain Miroir shampoo for a few years now. Normally, I would have had to cycle shampoos several times because after a while products don't work the way they used to. I don't know why, but my hair LOVES this stuff.
I use less shampoo than with other brands for the same clean results. This shampoo all by itself gave results that I normally got from other shampoos PLUS conditioners. Add to the Bain Miroir the Chroma Reflect conditioners - WOW.
I have very long, blonde (color treated) hair. My hair never looks dry or damaged.
There have been times when I traveled or slept over a friend's house and did not have my Bain Miroir. Believe me, I noticed the difference!
I normally shampoo my hair every other day or every three days. In the summer, I sometimes wash my hair several days consecutively because of being sweaty and dirty. In fact, last summer I bought Apres-Soliel shampoo from Kerastase but ended up going back to Bain Miroir. My hair felt healthier and less dry after sun, salt water and chlorine with Bain Miroir than with the Apres-Soliel.
The price is ridiculous but I have had a few years to get used to it and budget for it. After spending the money on coloring my hair at the salon, I want the best shampoo to keep it healthy and beautiful at home. The Bain Miroir/Chroma Reflect product line is the best I have ever used.

I'm a bit of a product junkie and am always trying out new shampoos and hair products. I used to use the Bain de Force but it seemed to strip my color a bit. I tried out the new shampoo (I forget what it's called but it's in a pink clear bottle) and didn't like it. It was too drying and I had to use a lot for it to feel like it was lathering up.
This is my favorite shampoo so far. It's a rich, creamy formula and gives my dry hair the condition and shine that it needs. My only wish is that it wasn't so expensive but I won't be buying anything else.

I'm another Kerastase convert, previously I had tried Oleo Relax products for my thin, fine hair and I wasn't impressed by them at the time. But due to a recommendation by a friend I tried this shampoo. I have to admit I had my doubts about this shampoo, part of me felt that I ought to be buying Bain de Force.
Any doubts I had were blown away by the results of using this shampoo, it really transformed my hair. My hair is volumised and incredibly shiny. The scent is nice, I find it more tolerable than Oleo Relax scent. I used this shampoo in conjunction with the Chroma Reflect Mask and I cant recommend them enough.
Previously my holy grail shampoo was Avedas Rosemary Mint but this shampoo has rocketed into first place.

The shampoo and conditioner work well, but for the price, they're no better than FF Color Technician or TIGI products. I do like the smell, but the screw-top of the shampoo is pretty impractical. I would buy it again but I wouldn't be in a hurry to get more if I ran out.

I've been using this Chroma Reflect Bain Miroir 1 shampoo for about 2 months now. It has made a wonderful difference in my color treated hair. I was a faithful user of Frederic Fakkai for years but read some reviews and had to to give this a try. While the FF products were good, this stuff is great! I have the the softness that was missing.
As others have said, you don't need a lot of this shampoo to do the job. I will be repurchasing this along with the Chroma Reflect Milk. I have the soft, shiny hair of my youth back!
I wish it had a flip top lid and was less expensive, but it does what it says it will do, just give it a few weeks and you will see a difference!

I love this shampoo (Bain Miroir 1). I swore I'd never buy a Kerastase product after buying a Kerastase conditioner (Nutritive Lait Vital Proteine Conditioner) for $30 that was extremely over priced for average results a few years back.
6 months ago, I had a hair cut (a few weeks after having my black hair colored to cover the greys) and my Vidal Sassoon hairdresser used the Chroma Protect leave in/shine enhancer. He was careful to show me my hair condition in the big mirror before the haircut and after to compare. When he was done, I oohed and cursed at the same time b/c my hair was silkier & shiner than ever, and I knew I had no choice but to splurge and buy this Shine Reflecting line.
The shampoo is super concentrated (you need very little), smells nice, looks cool in the bathroom and my friends tell me how thick my hair is after using this (impressive considering my hair is fine). After using this, my hair is very full but lustrous, tangle free, conditioned. (After using this for 6 months, I wonder if my hair is getting a little dry from the shampoo (although no hair follicle damage caused by "bodifying" hair shampoos like Matrix's Amplify, Jonthan, Sunsilk's Anti-Flat) so I just ordered Bain Miroir 2. The Chroma Reflect conditioner is ok but I don't know if it's good enough to repurchase. Frankly I used the Joico K-Pak Reconstructor and I thought the results blew away the Kerastase conditioner. I do love and highly recommend the Leave In Shine Enhancer as well as the shampoo!
***Update: I just received and tried the Bain Miroir 2. This shampoo is super conditioning and leaves your hair amazingly soft, shiny and pampered (more than any shampoo I've ever tried) w/o any heaviness or greasiness. My hair doesn't have the volume that Bain Miroir 1 gives me but my hair is not flat and still looks nice with body (just not as full as the Bain Miroir 1). I will alternate both of the shampoos as I love how pampered my hair is after using the 2 (you don't need conditioner except on the ends with this shampoo) but I love the fullness from Bain Mirorir 1 . I could imagine women with thicker hair or dryer hair transforming their hair with the Bain Miroir 2 (yes, IT IS that good).
I have fine (but lots of it) long (few inches past the shoulder) black,straight, silky hair (I'm Korean). Slightly oily scalp with dry ends. I also use: Joico, Alterna Hemp along with the Kerastase.

This shampoo does give nice shine but no more than a few other shine enhancing shampoos I've tried. It's super expensive so I feel it should make my hair shine like a Pantene commercial and it just doesn't. It smells great though.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I love this shampoo! It makes my hair so soft and silky and shine so much. It looks so healthy and feels amazing! It also keeps my blonde highlighted hair looking fresh until my next highlight appointment. Love this stuff!!! Smells amazing too!

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. On my 3rd bottle. Love the smell. Love the way it protects my hair, doesn't weigh it down, and maintains my color. My hair is super soft and silky. It's expensive, yes, but SO concentrated you barely need anything. It won't lather that much-but that's because it isn't loaded with nasty sulfates. So use just a little even if it doesn't seem like enough. Add more water if anything. An 8oz bottle lasts me around 6 months, I do tend to switch it off with some other shampoos but still, these last longer than you think if you use them properly. Don't ruin your hair with cheap hair products! Hair products are as important as investing in a good moisturizer for your skin!
