    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why I'm a Devoted fan of Bain chroma Riche I’m writing this review because I am a hair- care junkie, and I truly find Kerastase products superior to other brands. I don’t recall when I was introduced to Kerastase. But I do know I was hooked after the first shampoo with Bain Chroma Riche. My hair is highlighted, so for shampooing I primarily use Bain Chroma Riche. It prevents my highlights from turning brassy. Plus, it gives my hair fullness and shine that it never got with other shampoos. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but a little bit goes a long way. Besides I’m willing to pay a little more for exceptional results. My hair loves it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just yes...seriously I am going to be really honest with you. I cheated on kerastase with another brand. We had an affair for a couple of months, but something was missing. I knew I had made a mistake and my hair was all the proof. I have very thick color treated hair and we don't always get along. But once I started back with my entire collection- I knew there could never be another. This shampoo not only smells amazingly, but leaves my hair so soft and shiny. I keep a back up just in case. I'm so sorry for my lapse in judgement. But if I could I would put a ring on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never thought I would spend this much on shampoo I used Wen, a cleansing conditioner, for years before I tried this. I had a sample and took it to the gym to use during my shower. My hair was softer and shinier than I have ever seen it! I highlight my hair 2-3 times a year and heat style regularly using Kerastase's Thermiques for protection, but my hair still looks a but fried at times. This shampoo , followed by the Chroma Riche mask, is amazing. It is a but pricy but I think I will start alternating it with my Wen. Worth every penny (and you really only need a little bit!)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb Shampoo This is a lush shampoo that nurtures the strands and leaves your hair silky smooth and soft; it does seem to help preserve the hair color and at least mitigate color fading for my red hair. My only complaint is that I'd like for it to boost volume just a tad; I combine it with Aveda Color Protect shampoo to get a little more movement in my hair without sacrificing the smoothing and silky effects of the shampoo. It also has a pleasant yet minimal fragrance; I will definitely buy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my hair transformed I used to always use brands like redken or occasionally drugstore brands like pantene, head and shoulders, etc. I was skeptical on spending souch for a hair product however after coloring my hair and it fading so quickly I got a sample of this and decided to give it a try. It is absolutely amazing. My hair color lasted so much longer, it was softer, shiny, and had less damage. It also lasts way longer then most brands. Definitely worth a try!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Curly or straight, this shampoo is great. I have been using Kerastase shampoo for 20+ years. I shampoo every other day exclusively with this product. It always leaves my hair shiny and manageable whether I blow my hair straight, or diffuse it and go curly. I previously used Bain Mirror and when it was discontinued I chose the Bain Chroma Captive. Same great results! This shampoo is particularly good for color treated hair, but I would recommend it for everyone. You will love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply awesome! I have used Kerastase products in the past and recently made the switch back from using Aveda products. I made the switch to Aveda because my salon utilized these products but I started to see a shift in my hair's dryness and lack of luster. I have naturally wavy, very thick, but fine strand hair that is naturally dark-blonde that I dye red. I live in the South which is essentially 365 days of humidity so it was frizzing more than it ever has before due to dryness. I decided to switch back to Kerastase and my hair has been amazing! My hair is touchable-y soft and it looks super healthy. This line helps keep my red locks much longer than any other products I've ever used. One of the best parts is the products smell, it's not chemical or artificial smelling. It creates hair that my husband can't keep his hands off of or keep from smelling. He loves it as much as I do!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhances and retains hair color! I am a long time Kerastase user. Products I use on a regular basis are, the Bain Satin, Bain Cristal, Bain Force Architect. I recently started using the sulfate free Bain chroma Captive, and it's probably the best product yet!. It leaves color treated hair soft and manageable. It not only enhances but retains hair color, thereby minimizing fading with each hair wash. A must have for color treated hair.
