Hi Swanky! I actually have several products in my cart now (from the official Kerastase site) and am having trouble deciding what to purchase. I have blonde highlights that I get done about every 10-12 weeks. My hair is very thin and fine and a bit past shoulder length. More on the dry side. I'm thinking about the Bain Substantif for shampoo and either the matching conditioner or the Lait Volumactive. The Substantif line is for "mature hair", and reluctantly, I guess I qualify since I'm in my 40s. Definitely the Ciment Thermique, although they have a new Chroma Thermique for colored hair?? And ... want to get the Elixir Ultime, but now they have choices! They have one for fine hair and one for colored hair. Have you tried any of these new ones?Make sure and try Elixir Ultime!
Awesome!! My hair is the same way...Peacock26 said:Kerestase is my swear all for hair products! I've been highlighting/dying my hair since the middle school days and it helps protect my hair and keep it healthy and shiny!
For shampoo i switch off between the Bain Chroma Riche (dark pink bottle) and the Bain Force Architechte (green bottle). The Chroma Riche is perfect for my color and then the Force help damaged hair. I usually use the Chroma Riche two times then one time with Force.
For conditioner i use the Masque Chroma Riche (again, the dark pink jar--smells amazing!) and MasQuintense For Thick Hair conditioner (tan jar with orange lid). I sometimes will combine the two and then throw it up in a bun for about 30 minutes then wash it out! It leaves my hair literally silky smooth! Also.. i recently purchased Masque Ole-Relax Slim (dark orange/brown jar). I leave this conditioner in over night and then wash out in the morning <--- i use this maybe once a week but it really makes my hair healthy!
Then once im out of the shower i use Nectar Thermique and Ciment Thermique religously! If i could only have 2 products from the entire Kerastase line it would be these two! They & moisturize hair while protecting it from chemicals and and heating/iron tools.
On windy, humid, or simply bad hair days i also use the Cristaliste Lumiere Liquide (light pink serum glass bottle) <-- not my fav! Won't buy again after i finish it .
--- After writing all of my products it seems a little insane that i have so many different kinds! lol! But i guess i just know what works for me. And i like to use different products to treat different things... ( cough ** confessions of a product junkie** cough) . Having said that though i get more compliments on my hair than ever since i started using Kerestase a few years back. My hair is soo healthy and shiny and soft even after monthly highlights and the occasional dark brunette to blonde chemicals that ruin hair!
