Kérastase Bain Chroma Captive - Cleanse

Stars (of the celestial variety, though the same could be said for Hollywood) lose their allure when their brilliance fades. Which is exactly the case with color-treated hair: Fading means dull, damaged, lifeless locks. This sulfate-free shampoo maintains your hair's brilliance, preserving color depth for up to 40 days. Shine on.

Difficult for thick hair

While Kerastaase Chroma Riche (masque) is probably my favorite hair product of all time, I found Chroma Captive (wash) to be disappointing. I had a really tough time working this sulfate-free formula through my thick hair. I coudln't get my hair to feel clean with this shampoo without using too much product.

Not A Fan

This was not worth a second try for me. It seemed to have dried out my hair and caused more frizz. This is not anything I would purchase.

Meh...

I've been using Joico for years now but I thought I'd give this a try. It did literally nothing new to my hair. I won't be switching.

Did not love

I really wanted to love this shampoo, but I couldn't. It did not leave my hair soft or shiny. I will not be purchasing this in the future.

Worked but oh God the smell...

If the government is looking for a new alternative to tear gas, they should probably call L'Oreal for the fragrance formula for Kerstase.

I have to say, the shampoo worked great. It left my hair soft and moisturized, but still fulfilled my OCD need for squeaky clean hair while I was showering. I'd love this except for the smell.

Worked okay
Sampled

I think that it smelled okay, but I don't feel like it worked better than the one I already used. It was hard to tell with just using a sample.

Was this shampoo?
Sampled

When I wash my hair, I expect my shampoo, at a minimum, to leave my hair soft and silky. This, instead, made it matte and kind of tough-feeling, which was really disappointing. The packaging was also small and cheap looking, like something that would fall out of a magazine.

Shampoo??

It went along nicely with the VERY boring and unpleasing theme and contents of this months box.

I didn't feel this product had a good, clean scent. I also didn't feel like it cleaned my hair well and didn't make it soft. I think the fact that I only received a sample for shampoo but not the conditioner impacted the experience. I would never buy a shampoo without the conditioner, so without the full experience I would not buy this product.
