Pair this high-tech modeling paste with a high-tech oil-busting shampoo like Kérastase Bain Capital Force Energetique.

Kérastase

Birchbox Breakdown

This non-sticky paste will keep your hair in place without turning your follicles into crispy little Han Solos. Fortified with a blend of amino acids and vitamins to fight against premature hair loss, it’ll also make your hair look thicker, fuller, and stronger.

How it Works

Taurine and arginine—two hardworking amino acids—strengthen hair fibers, while ceramide adds weightless moisture and vitamin D-Biotine inhibits the enzymes that lead to hair loss.

How to Use

Apply a quarter-size amount to damp or dry hair (applying to dry hair creates a more matte finish). In either case, the more you use, the greater the hold.

My BF loves this

My boyfriend isn't too keen on using styling products - he just likes to tame his cowlicks and give himself a little part to look put together for work. And he loves this stuff. And I love how it smells. He just asked me to get him an extra container to keep at my place for him

My New Favorite Hair Product

This stuff is great, provides a firm hold without a greasy or glossy look. Works perfectly with other cremes and waxes when concocting a hair mixture. Definitely getting more!

Holds well

Bought this paste along with the matching shampoo and noticed it definitely helped give my hair some volume making it look better but the only downside was some odd smell that this gave off. Perhaps it was environment it was in while i used it...bathroom was warmer during summer? Anyway, it worked well for what it needed to do but the smell was something that put me off of using it consistently.

Good, not Great

I love the Kerastase thickening shampoo, but this product didn't meet my expectations. For the price, it's a pretty small size. It didn't have enough hold for my hair, but if you're looking for something with a light hold, it may work better for you. The scent of the product is great. Overall, good product but not the right one for me.

Only thing I use

Received this in the first box ever sent. Fell in love immediately. I think I have re-ordered this 3-4 times. It's all I use these days.

Love it

This works great. Love that it doesn't leave your hair all stiff like gel. I apply it after my shower and towel dry my hair. My hair stays looking nice all day long

Great hair paste

Gives hair great hold without any feeling of residue or stiffness. Smells great too, it lasts a long time as well. Just about to get my 2nd jar and it has been months. A finger tip amount will do.

A definite Re-Purchase

Per my husbands request, he no longer wants to use any other hair styling product aside from Capital Force.
It delivers great hold without making hair look stiff and smells great too!
