Editor's TipEditor's Tip

To extend the life of your (salon-given) hair color, indulge in Kerastase’s three step system. Shampoo with Kerastase’s Bain Chroma Captive, condition with Fondant Chroma Captive, and follow with a dose of this styling aid.

Kérastase

Birchbox Breakdown

You’ve mastered the daily SPF routine—for your face. Next up: zeroing in on a protective styling aid that keeps your color-treated strands safe from UV rays. Kerastase’s rich leave-in cream is the ultimate defender—it restores moisture, blocks harmful rays, and keeps strands bright. Apply it daily and feel free to frolic outdoors as much as you like.

How it Works

This silky leave-in treatment targets the three D’s of heat and sun exposure: dehydration, deterioration, and dullness with hydrating ingredients and smoothing ceramides. Specialized UV filters block damaging rays, while also counteracting the effects of free radicals.

How to Use

Working from the tips up, generously apply two nickel-sized amounts to hair. Concentrate on extra dry areas and let the treatment sink in before styling.

Makes your hair soooo silky!

I LOVE this product. Between blow dying and straightening, my hair gets frizzy and brittle very easily. Just a pea sized dab of this keeps my hair shiny and soft. The package size lasts forever, wonderful product!

BEST!!

It took me a while to get to this product sample, but once I did it was AMAZING!! My hair felt twice as strong and thick as ever. It's been thinning out and somewhat dry, but this product made a BIG difference. As soon as I get to it, I'm certainly adding this line to my routine in hair care.

Silky Smooth in the Sun

This product did great things for my hair. I got it right before spending a trip at the lake for a few days and it helped protect my hair from the normal drying and wear and tear that happens when I spend several long days in the sun. I also have hi-lights and I think it helped keep those tones brighter for longer!

Not for Thin Hair

I had been convinced by a stylist in my past life to purchase this product in its full size and I hated to see it in my box! This product stayed in my shower as a luffah paper weight of sorts. This just weighs me down and makes my hair feel limp. The only time I used this was as a once every few months start over product. NOT A FAN!

Great!

This product is great for dried out processed hair. I loved it so much I stretched it out so that I could use it one day a week for a month or so. I found that each time I used it, my hair had a great smooth and soft shine. It left my hair feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!

I love Kerastase!

This BirchBox sample promptly had me ordering a full-size & casting my other hard to find French styling creme aside. Now please carry the Mousse Volumactiv, another of my Kerastase must-haves!

non just for color treated hair

I don't dye or color my hair, but I hate when I have to blow dry my hair. Kerastase keeps my hair feeling silky and hydrated even when blow drying my hair is cold drying weather.
