    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! At first this product seemed like a gimmick to me. I've used several other scalp serums in the past to help strengthen my hair and help it grow and have had some slight success. I decided to try Initialiste after I found some impressive before and after picture of people who had used for 30 days.I am so glad I decided to try it!! I have been using it every time I wash my hair for a few months now. I apply 4 pipettes to wet hair in sections after towel drying, and then massage it into my scalp and run the leftover through the lengths of my hair. I can definitely see a noticeable improvement in my hair! It has been growing faster and is healthier, shinier and stronger. It smells great too. I will definitely keep using it!

    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 5 out of 5 by from Hair and Scalp feel much healthier! This product helps heal a dry, flaky scalp and makes my hair feel thicker, softer, and healthier. My hair has more body now. I do not use as much as the directions call for, yet I still get the amazing results - and it makes the product last much longer. Using this product also has reduced how often I need to shampoo my hair. My scalp is moisturized and not flaky, tight or dry as it has been in the past. I highly recommend this to anyone with a dry, irritated scalp, and for someone who wants to add fullness and body to hair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Boost for Fine Hair I have very fine hair and damaged. It is hard to give it a volume and it grows very slowly like 2 inches per year. I apply any oil I find on the web that is said to be helpful for the hair but it does not. But after using Kérastase Initialiste my hair got a boost, I use it after every wash and it has that volume boost for couple of days. I also starting seeing new hair growing and it grew 2 inches in 2 months, this is an amazing product with amazing benefits, I will continue using it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initialiste for the Win! I have been using this product for a year and half, and Im obsessed. After I finished my first bottle, I wasnt convinced it did that much for my hair. Or let's say I wasnt convinced it was worth a repeat purchase. After several washes w/o this product, my hair went back to feeling gross. I was like....what happened to that soft silky hair I used to have? I immediately re-ordered and it has made all the difference. I truly don't think my hair would be as long as it is w/o this product!

    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 5 out of 5 by from Kerastase..nothing compares.. This product is amazing. It not only lives up to its standards but the results for me were outstanding. I had noticed for sometime since I had been going through hormonal changes that I was losing more hair so I decided to give Initialiste a try. Well to sum it up as usual within 5 treatments I already could see a drastic change in the hair loss as well as the thickness returning. All I have to say is if it wasn't for Kerastase my life would be in shambles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid gold This product does what it promises. I suffered from balding spots near the front of head. I tried so many things to help & everything seemed to make the balding worse. My hair was extremely fragile and in need of something. I am so grateful for this product. My bald spots started to fill in within 1 week. My hair looks amazing now & is ducky soft. I also other kerastase products & won't use anything on my hair. Finally a brand that works.
