    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 Kerastase is pretty incrediable! Where to begin, this is a review and a story of my hair journey and finding Kerastase. I've been a long time user of Kerastase (4 years now). I started using Kerastase after my hair started shedding terribly, breaking a lot, and just became really dry in a matter of a months. This change was absolutely devastating as I had always had thick, silky, beautiful hair which I took for granted. I immediately went to the doctor and had all kinds of tests done, because at my age (27 at the time) my hair should have been healthy and vibrant. Long story short my tests were all fine (thank God), but still no answers for why my hair all of sudden went from healthy to a thin, dry fuzzball. I began searching the internet for a better shampoo/conditioner as that felt like my only hope, and that's when I discovered Kerastase. I originally purchased Chroma Riche and used that for about 6 months but it eventually became a little heavy for my hair (left it a feeling weighed down), so I switched to Bain Miroir 1 and was using that shampoo for the last 3 years and over the course of those 3 years my hair gradually started coming back to life. When Bain Mirior was discontinued I took a chance on Chroma Captive, and I'm so glad I did. Chroma Captive is even better than Bain Miroir 1 (in my opinion). It smells very nice, cleanses my thin hair well without drying it out, and gives me volume and shine...after all I've been through I couldn't believe the consistent results I've had with Kerastase. Kerastase isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for and this is my one splurge! Since using Kerstase the condition of my hair has improved almost to what it was before the shedding dryness began. My hair's texture is still fine, thin, and highlighted. However, I've came to the conclusion that having thin and fine hair is my new reality but Kerastase products have without a doubt made my new hair reality much more livable. In the past 4 years I've noticed the shedding has lessened, and my once dry, thin, lifeless, fuzzball has transformed to much nice texture, definitely more manageable, and even bouncy again. If you're having trouble with your hair - give Kerastase a try...I don't think you'll be sorry!
