The Haircare Brand That Solves Everything (Short of World Peace)

If you’ve ever stood in front of a wall—virtual or in-real-life—of Kérastase products, you understand the stress of having too much choice. The legendary brand has a high-performance, personalized hair care product for every hair and scalp need (and we mean every). The catch? It can be a little tricky figuring out which nourishing treatment, healing elixir, or volumizing formula is right for you. That’s where we come in—use this easy guide to match your hair woe to your perfect product.

Kérastase Masque Force Architecte – Treat

Hair Concern: Damaged or breakage-prone hair

Product: Kérastase Masque Force Architecte – Treat
What It Does: The entire Architecte line, including the restorative shampoo and leave-in serum, is designed to reinforce weakened strands and protect healthy ones. But we’re particularly into the deep conditioning treatment, which works through a patented combination of ceramides, fibrous strengtheners, and proteins.
Consider Also: A leave-in treatment formulated with heat-activated ingredients, Kérastase Resistance Ciment Thermique – Prime shields the hair shaft from damage caused by heat styling.

Kérastase Elixir Ultime – Prime

Hair Concern: Overall dullness

Product: Kérastase Elixir Ultime – Prime
What It Does: Fortified with a unique combination of essential oils, this lightweight formula leaves strands super shiny and manageable—whether your hair is curly, straight, or in between.
Consider Also: Kérastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide – Prime uses light reflectors to add gloss, while aloe vera softens dry, brittle ends (especially useful if you’ve got long hair). Part hair treatment, part styling serum, Kérastase Cristal Sculpt takes inspiration from skincare with two tried-and-true ingredients, alpha hydroxy acid and ceramides. The result: a sleek mane with a glass-like sheen.

Kérastase Bain Volumactive – Cleanse

Hair Concern: Thin or limp strands

Product: Kérastase Bain Volumactive – Cleanse
What It Does: This lightweight shampoo injects much-needed volume into hair, while also adding movement and shine.
Consider Also: Designed specifically for longer hair, Kérastase Cristalliste Bain Cristal Fine – Cleanse adds body without weighing wispy strands down.

Kérastase Lait Cristal Conditioner – Treat

Hair Concern: Frequent tangles

Product: Kérastase Lait Cristal Conditioner – Treat
What It Does: The vitamin-rich ingredients in this wunderkind conditioner work to detangle knots, repair damage, and glossify each strand.

Hair Concern: Color-treated

Kérastase Chroma Thermique – Protect Product: Kérastase Chroma Thermique – Protect
What It Does: This leave-in treatment acts like a protective SPF so highlighted strands stay brighter, longer.
Consider Also: A vitamin E-fortified shampoo with UV filters, Kérastase Bain Chroma Riche – Cleanse keeps hair color rich and vibrant.

Kérastase Cristalliste Bain Cristal Thick – Cleanse

Hair Concern: Thick and unruly

Product: Kérastase Cristalliste Bain Cristal Thick – Cleanse
What it Does: This high-foaming, paraben-free shampoo tames long, thick hair, while adding body and movement.
