I like this shampoo a lot. I think its crazy expensive, but it is a good product. It has all the things I want from a shampoo. It cleans my hair without drying it or weighing it down, it lathers well most of the time, and it smells nice.

My one complaint is the packaging. Having to deal with unscrewing a lid in the shower is not practical. Its a nice and comfortable lid, but its still a screw lid and I only have two hands. When you unscrew and put some product in your hand, its a bit difficult to get the cap back on the bottle without losing some of the product down the side of your hand. Although maybe I am just extremely uncoordinated. I bought the double size with the pump to avoid this issue, but that is a limited time thing. I might try the large sizes on eBay, but I never quite trust products on eBay.

One thing about Kerastase is that you really need to make sure you are using the right products for your hair. I would have thought I needed the most moisturizing products, but as it turns out the middle products are good for my hair. Consult a stylist that has experience with Kerastase for what you should be using.

I guess I oughta review this shampoo, considering I bought it several months ago...I am not impressed. I thought it would be that amazing hair product, as everyone raves about it. No Sir-E. It's like a basic shampoo, its not moisturizing, it cleans well, and it doesn't seem to encourage dryness. For the record, my hair is baby-fine, long, and dry. For $30 I am sure I could find a shampoo equal to value at the drugstore. Like I said... I really wanted this to be IT, my HG, it just wasn't. :(

I have bought this on several occassion- and I use this alongside the conditioner, and although my hair was looking fab, I think it was more so to do with the conditoner. I am so undecided about shampoo- I won't buy your standard stuff in the supermarkets as my hair is dire, but to pay this amount for it I dont really like. I always shampoo my hair twice when i wash it too! If you are going to use other Kerastase products to go with this, by all means, do it. But, I would not buy this on its own. I think its more important to have a good conditioner.

I got good bang for my buck with this shampoo. I use it once a week on my scalp only, and I've had the same bottle for two years now! A little goes a very long way, and I only use a dime-sized amount each time. The price is ridiculous at over $30, but I would buy it again because the shampoo lasts and it leaves my scalp clean.The only downside I've found with this shampoo, is that it tends to leave my scalp itchy after using it. Could be because I've had the same bottle for so long and the product's turned rancid. I don't know.

I don't understand all the hype over Kerastase friend recommended this to me, so I went to the salon and they gave me this, called it the "Chanel" of shampoos. BULLSH*T. I bought this with the Lait Vital conditioner, and my hair and scalp just ended up more dry than it had been with my previous shampoo (Matrix Logics). I'm switching back...this shampoo just left my wallet empty and my hair limp and dry.

The packaging is horrible. You have to twist off a cap in order to open it (is it me, or is there a reason why 99% of all shampoo bottles easily open?) Will not buy again...

Got it after a recommendation from a friend, I have to say I stil have yet to understand why people spend so much on this, it really did nothing for me at all, if anything left my hair limp and lifeless

Very expensive for not a whole lot of product, but such is Kerastase. I have fine, somewhat damaged hair with dry ends and I found this shampoo MUCH too heavy. I felt like my hair was always limp and weighed down when using this. If you have very damaged hair that isn't very fine, this stuff probably is for you. I will try the Chroma line.

ONLY for damaged/processed hair. If you have natural, healthy hair it will feel gunky and definitely not squeaky clean. This is what I used after I bleached my hair white blonde from black within two weeks and my hair was falling out. When it was wet, it would drip off in chunks when touched like slime. I went to an awesome colorist and he told me to use this shampoo, and it definitely helped a lot. It was the only thing that I could have used on my hair at that point, in fact I used all Kerastace and it rebuilt my hair. I have used "3" as well, but honestly I didn't see that big of a difference between the two.

I absolutely love this shampoo! It very quickly became my HG and I've been using it for a month straight. It's gentle and moisturizing but doesn't weigh down my fine hair. I can even skip conditioner if I want and my hair still feels soft. It is expensive but a little goes a long way. I wish the lid wasn't a screw on lid, it's cumbersome in the shower. But that's my only complaint.

UPDATE 3/20/2010: This is my HG! It lathers so nice, smells wonderful, and leaves my hair feeling like silk even before I use conditioner. I've just used up another bottle and bought the limited edition size from my salon. Can't live without this shampoo!
