Kérastase

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

Thanks to sulfate-free technology, this formula won't strip color from strands. Linseed oil coats the hair shaft to hydrate and maximize shine, while zinc gluconate boosts bonds between coloring agents within hair fibers. A powerful combo of antioxidants and UV filters combat environmental damage that leads to breakage and fading.

How to Use

Massage a quarter-sized amount into hair at the scalp area. Lather. Then rinse thoroughly.

Liked it at first
Sampled

I really liked this product at first. I was getting ready to buy the full sized product; however, after several washes, it seemed to leave my hair very frizzy and not managable at all.

Just okay

This product smells really good, but it left my hair very tangled. I have very fine hair that gets tangled easily, but this seemed to be worse than other products.

Just another shampoo

I had high expectations of this product as I've tried other shampoos of this brand before that were phenomenal. However, this seemed ordinary and I didn't notice any difference in my hair after using it. My hair didn't feel any softer or shinier, nor did it make my color-treated hair more vibrant as promised.

Recommend

I am brand loyal to this line.

It's expensive however it is long lasting (a little goes a long way) has mild scents and really takes care of your hair. For colored hair care I wouldn't recommend any other product and I've tried so many over last 20 years

Good for fine hair

Kerastase products are pretty consistently high-quality. This was a nice shampoo, but it's a little hard to tell from the sample size at how well it does with preventing fading.

One of my favorites
Purchased

It really does protect my hair from fading after color. I've used their products for years and have been nothing but happy with them. The scent is nice, not strong or offensive.

Gentle On Fine Hair

I thought this product did a good job. My hair seemed slightly softer and more manageable. However, it is a bit hard to tell with shampoos.

Hair was more manageable

My hair was more manageable when I used this shampoo for a couple of days. I didn't notice any difference in the color longevity, but only had enough for 4 washes with the samples.

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.
