    Rated 4 out of 5 by from There's life for your hair pos chemical treatment This product really works. I've been using it almost every day for the past couple weeks and I can feel and see the difference. My hair looks shinier, less frizzy with more "body". I have long hair, so the serum did very little to nothing to the ends of my hair, but on top of my head it looks much ticker. Even the texture of my hair looks stronger. The serum smells nice and it's easy to apply. I only wish this product was coming on a bigger bottle so I could use it in the whole length of my hair to see if it would make the tips stronger as well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh I want to start this review by saying that I use many of Kerastase's products, my favorite being the Cristal Liste Lumiere Liquide, which assist me in my having amazing hair. It is partly the reason I think the INITIALISTE was such a disappointment. My hair is past my behind at this point, and incredibly healthy. So much so that it refuses to hold a curl and even a bun will fall out due to my hair being so smooth. It's never been dyed and I am now in my mid thirties. This is why I think this product was so, meh. I guess I just don't need any help. I have given it to my daughter to finish off as she has angry hair. Time will tell how amazing this stuff is. I will update the rating if I notice her hair has any change. I do wish they would do something about the smell though, as it reminds me of a salad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Great I think of the shampoo's and conditioner I have from Kerastase is awesome. I really like the new shampoo and conditioner for long hair... Now I feel Initialiste is a wonderful product.... So much so that my husband also uses this which is a big! win considering he never uses products or treatments for his hair.... I see a difference with my hair especially living in such a dry climate Like AZ I can not say enough about Kerastase

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives Hair New Life, Bounce, Body I am on my second bottle of this product, and it really makes my fine, lifeless, highlighted, slightly damaged hair, have more body and it feel healthy again. I use less product than the directions advise, but I still get amazing results, The quality of my fine hair has changed - it actually feels thicker, bouncier, and more swishy! Also, I feel like I have to wash my hair less often, and that it actually holds my style in between shampoos better. Also, I have a very dry scalp. Ever since I have been using this product, and massaging it into my scalp, my scalp is MUCH more hydrated and less tight/flaky. So there are a lot of benefits from this one product - the quality of both my hair and scalp has improved drastically, I don't have to wash my hair as often, and it helps hold the style in between washing! The smell is lightly floral and pleasant, too. Give it a try!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Since using the serum, my hair feels stronger and softer than it did 4 weeks ago, making it easier to style and because the condition has improved, the overall appearance of my hair is much better and easier to maintain. After, I've applied the serum (and it doesn’t leave a residue) my hair looks really shiny and 'swishy' without feeling too fly-away or fluffy. The Difference is very obvious. Thank you Kerastase.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fine but won't repurchase it I know that this is Kerastase's new product and they are trying to make this product sounds wonderful. However, after using a month with 7 times a week, I don't really see the differences. It smells good, like fresh apples, but doesn't really help my hair grow longer of thickness my hair. I have very healthy scalp so I don't think I really need this tho! Will not buy it again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK but... Not worth $61. It does make my hair soft and bouncy but I do not see any results in the breakage. Been using for 2 wks now. I will continue to use it and wait. I will not be repurchasing this item. However their masks are wonderful and I just keep going back to them (15 yrs.)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kerastase Initialiste I used this per the instructions and also per my hair stylist. I saw no results at all. I went back and asked my stylist what she felt about the product since it's been out a while and she said not many people found results either, but it has worked for very few.
