Kerastase Products Review: 3 Best Kerastase Shampoos and Conditioners. Is It Worth The Hype?– From revitalizing my damaged hair to nurturing my wavy Indian hair, Kerastase products have become my closest ally over the years. While Kerastase products have been developed since the 1960s in Paris, these products entered the Indian markets in the early 2000s. Kerastase products developed a strong presence in hair salons all over the world and that’s how I first discovered Kérastase. Despite having an on-off relationship with Kerastase hair products initially, the results have always left me amazed. The only question was affordability and my sense of beauty as a child. Yes, childhood!
With a legacy spanning almost a century, Kérastase has become a symbol of luxury and premium hair care. Everyone loves salon-fresh hair. The smooth, soft, and pleasant-smelling hair you get after every salon visit. That’s what Kerastase tries to bottle. In this article, I shall take you through different product ranges of Kérastase, pricing, pros, cons, and personal recommendations of Kerastase hair products.
Disclaimer & Tips
- All my reviews are based on my personal experience. Every product might not work the same way for every individual.
- Every product needs its own time to show the results. Nothing happens overnight.
- Don’t buy many products at a time from a brand before knowing how it works on your hair. Buy a single product and use it for a few weeks to see the result before you decide anything.
What is Kerastase?
Kérastase was born in France, from François Dalle and François Léonard collaboration, in 1964, to create a magic that made hair damage disappear using premium ingredients and technology. And, if you ever wondered why the bottles of Kerastase hair products look similar to Loreal, that’s because it is. Kerastase is a part of the parent company Loreal, whose CEO was François Dalle, the creator of Kerastase. The products offered include shampoos and conditioners, hair masks and hair oils, hair serums, styling creams, and heat protectants, etc.
Kérastase even offers online personalized hair diagnosis and hair care advice along with Kerastase hair product recommendations based on the diagnosis outcome – for free! Kérastase has 19 hair care product ranges to choose from to match your specific needs.
Kerastase Products Review: Kerastase Shampoos
Rather than having 1 solution for all hair damage, Kerastase offers a whole range of hair products aimed to rectify a variety of hair problems. Kerastase shampoos can be suitable for different hair types including dry, colored, prone-to-fall, curly, blonde, curly, and damaged. They also have a dedicated range of products suitable for men’s hair. The top 3 recommended of these would be:
Kerastase Resistance Bain Force Architecte Shampoo
Strengthening shampoo formulated Vita-Ciment® Complex, effectively lifts away dirt and impurities while preventing breakage and split-ends. This shampoo smells clean and works well in hard water keeping hair free from mineral residue and dirt.
Kerastase Densifique Bain Densité Shampoo
This is a daily shampoo infused with Hyaluronic acid and intra-cylane to awaken the dormant hair follicles and strengthen hair fibers. It has a delicate and addictive smell and works on colored hair as well. The best part is that this shampoo does not contain Minoxidil and, therefore, will not cause hair thinning even if you stop using it. My personal favorite and I highly recommend it if you have thin hair like me and want bouncy thick hair.
Kerastase Chronologiste Bain Régénérant Shampoo
An absolute lifesaver for aging scalps. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, abyssine, and vitamin E, this revitalizing shampoo creates long-lasting shine and hydration to the hair. Not to mention the divine fragrance having notes of tea rose, light woods, and musk.
Kerastase Products Review: Kerastase Conditioners
Kerastase Genesis Fondant Renforcateur Conditioner
One of the best-selling conditioners from the Genesis range, this conditioner is a magic potion for weakened hair, prone to falling due to breakage. Enriched with Edelweiss Native Cells, Ginger Root & Aquaxyl, you can feel the hair being strong and soft after the first wash without hair being weighed down. Care must be taken not to apply to the scalp but rather to the ends as this conditioner is meant for length and hair ends.
Works wonders with rough and dry hair. This is an anti-frizz conditioner that helps to tame your fine to normal hair. Although slightly on the expensive side for an anti-frizz conditioner, only a small amount of this light creamy product is necessary to tame your hair. Therefore, the value for money, I would say, is great for this product.
Yes, this creamy oil-infused conditioner from the best-selling Elixir line deeply nourishes your frizzy and dull hair into a smooth shiny one. Elixir Ultime Soin Conditioner leaves a 48-hour lasting result when used in conjunction with Kerastase Elixir Ultime Bain Shampoo and Elixir Ultime Masque. Though most of the Elixir products are great, personally, this particular one wasn’t up to my satisfaction. Mostly because of the strong smell and watery consistency.
