non just for color treated hair

I don't dye or color my hair, but I hate when I have to blow dry my hair. Kerastase keeps my hair feeling silky and hydrated even when blow drying my hair is cold drying weather.

Surprisingly lightweight

I was expecting this cream to be denser, but it absorbs well without hair feeling heavy or with a residue.

I just colored my hair last weekend and applied after my first two shampoos, so it's hard to tell if this is working (or how...). My salon carries this brand, so I assume they recommend it, but there's not a good empirical way to test effectiveness.

Hair felt nice but the product smelled strange

I liked the weight of the product. It was too heavy a conditioner. My hair felt great after using it just once. The thing is I didn't like the smell. It almost smelled chemically.

Did not see visible results

Just leaving protectant was nothing that amazes me. I've used it several times after washing and the results were nothing to make me want to go out and buy the product. It is a lightweight product which is beneficial however I've used better products that have bettrr hair care protecting ingredients.

Hair protectant

I tried this and I like how it makes my hair feel. I like to flat iron and this is essential

Meh...

It didn't really make any difference to me. My hair felt and looked the same. I didn't care much for the scent.

Ok, not great

I liked the smell but not the texture of this shampoo and crème. It felt very heavy going on but I didn’t get the sense that it was providing any extra deep conditioning. Since it was a sample, I can’t say if it did a better job protecting my color-treated hair (didn’t strip it off or anything lol).

Meh
Sampled

Most of the hair samples birchbox sends are for super-styled hair, but I usually wear mine naturally so the hair care stuff just isn't for me.
