For best results, use after washing with color-protecting Kérastase Bain Chroma Captive.

Kérastase

Birchbox Breakdown

Every time we color our hair, we notice fading, dullness, and pesky grays peeking out just one to two weeks later, leading to a vicious cycle of too-frequent dye jobs and damaged tresses. So when we discovered this ultramoisturizing, conditioner that preserves hair color for up to 40 days, we danced a little jig. Thanks to ionic technology and natural oils, it locks in color and boosts shine so you can break that vicious cycle for good.

How to Use

Massage a quarter-sized amount into hair, focusing on mid-lengths to tips. Rinse out after 2-3 minutes.

Smells heavenly!

Well the smell totally sold me the instant I opened the sample. It is really unique. Kind of tropical. It is not overpowering. This rinse lightly hydrates and rinses easily.

Smooth, shiny hair!

I used this conditioner in conjunction with the shampoo. The consistency is thin, but that has nothing to do with effectiveness or results. It left my hair smooth, shiny, and polished.

Really thin :(

I was really excited to try this out, since I loved the shampoo so much. However, I was not impressed with this product at all. You would need to use a lot of it to get a conditioned feeling. I would much prefer to use something else for conditioning paired with the shampoo.

Smells great!

I love the smell of this sample. The product itself conditioned my hair perfectly but I had to use a lot of it. I have thick, highlighted hair and the dryness is manly on the ends but I have to condition frequently to prevent flyaways. This product worked well but it would be too costly to realistically use on my longer hair. Although I may revisit that decision in the future because i really love the smell.

Barely enough

There wasn't a ton in the sample, for my long tangly hair. I used all of it up on the first shot. It worked well, smelled good, but is so expensive.

Good product, but a little small to make a well-informed decision

I love Kerastase products in general and this one is no different. I love the smell and find they leave my hair silky soft. It was a bit hard to tell with this one though due to the sample size. It's a color-safe conditioner, but would take a lot more than what's in the bottle to determine if my color lasts when using it daily. It's not an especially thick conditioner so it's hard to tell how much to use and I may be over-using it because I used it up in just 2 or 3 showers.

What....

Did anyone read the directions on this. You are supposed to towel dry your hair put this product in and then wait 3-5 minutes before rinsing out. Who has time for any of that, not this girl. As a regular conditioner this worked poorly for my hair and I am not about to try it like it is intended to be used.

Pairs nicely with shampoo

I used this sample along with the shampoo sample I received in the Birchbox this month. My hair had volume and shine after their use, and although they are a bit pricey I will purchase the pair if I continue to see good results. The samples are large enough to use these products a few more times.

Great Smell

I didn't find this to be especially moisturizing, but I really loved the smell.

Fixed my rough bleached hair!

I am pretty much in awe of this conditioner! I had been using some purple "for colored hair" conditioner that took forever to rinse out and it was to the point where I dreaded showering! This clear stuff soaks into your hair and heals it! It rinses out easily and you only need a tiny bit. My hair was silky, smooth and shimmery after blow drying. Very impressive.
