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.
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.1
I didn't notice a huge difference between this and my regular shampoo. It may have just not been the right kind for my hair type. I trust what I have heard about the brand but I wouldn't purchase after using this sample.2
It didn't impress me at all. my hair was greasy after washing.2
Smells great and didn't weigh down my hair! Usually products for color treated hair over moisturize but this one didn't5
I was excited to try this shampoo but it doesn't seem like anything special. It got my hair clean enough (and I got two uses out of the sample I got) but I felt like using it consistently would lead to residue build-up on my hair. There are much better shampoos out there for this price, or cheaper!2
This left my hair feeling dryer than my prescription dandruff shampoo does, and that's pretty hard to do. I don't see any reason to spend the money to buy this.2
This shampoo is not for me. I didn't feel like it cleaned my hair at all.2
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!
I guess I liked this but it was only enough for one shampoo so it wasn't enough for me to really form an opinion. It smelled good and left my hair feeling clean, but I do not think it's worth the money. It's not that much different from cheaper brands. I also don't appreciate the fact that the packet said "free sample" on the back. I should not be getting free samples in a box that I pay for. Overall, I think I will look for a cheaper product that works about the same.2
I noticed no difference after washing my hair. But with a one use sample, whose to say?3
