Kérastase Bain Chroma Riche - Cleanse

Highlighted and color-treated hair can easily become dry and damaged. Most color-specific products temporarily mask the problem, the haircare equivalent of slapping a band-aid on a gaping wound. Kérastase’s Bain Chroma Riche shampoo is different: the formula actually repairs texture to give you softer, healthier, and shinier hair. Not only will your tresses look more beautiful, but they’ll also smell amazing—a nice perk.

Surprisingly Disappointed
Sampled

I like the Kerastase brand and have had it recommended to me before, which is why I was surprised there wasn't any "wow" factor with this shampoo. Of course, I can't judge its long term effect on my color treated hair. Nonetheless, I didn't like how it wasn't "sudsy' and it left my hair feeling like straw.

Really, really disappointing.
Sampled

I've only tried one sample from the brand in the past, as I've never gotten myself to give-in and buy from this spendy label.

I was excited to try the shampoo and conditioner samples I received, as I know many people are fans of the brand. That feeling was soon dashed, unfortunately. I don't mind some sulfates for my highlighted and toner-ed hair, as I know that, as long as they're not left in for long, they really don't hurt color much (everyone should google for where/why that was made up). I do mind silicones (which cause little bumps on my face/around my hairline), but I gave the shampoo/conditioners a try, as I can use a little of them. Whatever is in this product duo left my hair an odd combo of dry and limp, and there was some grainy something that was left behind that lasted until I used a clarifying shampoo - not good!

Product smelt good, but I didn't like how the product left my hair. Made it feel coarse and I'm not a fan of that.

Too many toxic ingredients
Sampled

I am willing to give in on some products that have toxic ingredients but I have tried really great natural alternatives
that have high quality ingredients and cost less like Aubrey Organics.

I'll save my toxin points for something that impresses me.

Meh :/

I wasn't impressed with this product for the price. I did not care for the smell and did not think there was a noticeable difference in my hair after use.

Not the same

This product is a little too heavy. I'm pretty set in my ways with my current line of keratin based products.

Nothing Extrodinary
Sampled

I have fine hair and this shampoo left my it tangled and dry. Maybe it would be better paired with the conditioner but as it was it didn't have much conditioning. It's very light - not creamy.

not for me

Made my hair super greasy. My hair is already very oily, this made it worse.

Promises Broken
Sampled

The shampoo did nothing for me- does not detangle, does not smell good, does not enhance shine. I tried both packets consecutively, and did not see any improvements. If you're going to spend money on these products, I prefer Paul Mitchell.

Not Impressed
Sampled

I love a good smelling hair product that makes my color treated hair feel soft and refreshed-for me, this shampoo did neither. Maybe it would have been better if you sent 1 shampoo sampler and 1 conditioner sampler instead of 2 shampoos?
