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.

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.

Kérastase Bain Chroma Captive - Cleanse
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.

Great product

This was a great shampoo. My hair felt soft after using this product. The size was great, was able to get a few uses out of it at the gym.

Great Shampoo

Great shampoo. Smells fantastic. It was easy on my hair and made it feel super soft. My hair is over-processed so it takes a lot to make my hair feel soft. Sample size was a good sized amount, I was able to use it twice. Over all, great product.

Mixed Review

When I first tried it I had really long hair and it made the underside of my hair super greasy. Sometimes, after I blow-dried my hair, it didn't even feel like I had clean hair. So I stopped using it.

Then I cut 3 1/2 inches off my hair and dyed it. The next day I ran out of my regular shampoo for colored hair and had to use this one...and it worked great! I don't know what the difference was the second time around, so I would say sample it before paying $40 dollars for it.

I love this stuff - it has saved my hair. No more flat dull hair, this makes my hair shiny and full. And it smells amazing. I love it.

Worth it!

Kerastase is as good as they say. This is an awesome formula for color treated hair that's often dry and brittle. I saw improvement in my hair in just two days.

Great for brittle hair

I have brittle hair and this was great for days I wanted smooth, barrel curls instead of my normal curly kinky textured hair. Impressed!

Pass for fine hair

This shampoo smells nice, but it's too heavy for fine hair, especially if you use any products during styling. This definitely won't work for those who use leave in conditioners or detanglers.
