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.

Was just ok

i wouldn't say this made my color last any longer, but it made the color brighter i guess. i only got the sample size in one of my boxes so i am not sure how this would benefit after longer use.

Pretty good

Wish they included the conditioner complement on the box but overall smelled good and worked well on my long hair!

amazing product...high price

I've used other higher end, salon brands (Aveda, Bumble and Bumble, etc) and I was impressed by how this product positively changed the feel and texture of my hair after just a couple of washes. The only downside...the price. Way too much for the full size product.

Really liked it

I was super tickled when I got a sample of this in my Birchbox as I have been wanting to try this brand for quite awhile now. I really liked how it worked on my hair and my hair actually felt clean. The only reason why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I think the price for the full sized product is astronomical. Guess you get what you pay for :)

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.

Kerastase products are high quality

Nice to have these sample size shampoos in the pouches vs bottles for travelling. I like that this product is sulfate free as well particularly when sailing - helpful for environment.

Wonderful!

I am writing about my sample I received in my box. I truly loved this shampoo. It smelled great, it made my hair shiny and was just as good as the Pureology that I normally use. My only drawback for not purchasing is the price. It is slightly on the expensive side.

Great Shampoo

I tried this Shampoo and fell in love instantly! It helped my quenched tresses and left my hair feeling silky smooth. I was happy to find that it is sulfate free, as that matters to me.

Purchased

I received a travel-sized sample and knew right away I would buy a full-sized bottle. My stylist works for a salon that specializes in two other product lines, but Kerastase products are some of her personal favorites.

I think the pricing is about the same as similar product lines. What's great about this shampoo, though, is that a little goes a long way. Most sulfate-free shampoos don't suds up very much. This one suds up very nicely. I have shoulder-length hair and a nickel- sized dollop is plenty.

I received the sample when I was coloring my hair red and it helped make my hair silky soft and tangle-free. My hair is coarser now that I'm coloring it blonde, so it's not as soft after using this shampoo, but conditioner takes care of that. I'm more concerned about having a shampoo that minimizes washing the color out, and this shampoo works for that. And the smell is amazing!

Light, easy to spread, and made my hair light and smooth

Based on the packaging I didn't expect much out of this shampoo. It seemed like a grocery store brand. But, it was easy to spread and work through my hair, rinsed clean, and left my hair very light and soft. Definitely a winner in my book.
