Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Hair Must Have I’ve always had dry hair with brittle ends. At this point I think my split ends are genetic. This shampoo (and conditioner) line just nourishes my hair and creates a health shine I’ve never had before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Shampoo!! I never thought a shampoo could make such a difference in my hair, but this one does! It is amazing how much healthier, shinier, and more body my hair has. I noticed the change after the first use. The scent and amount of lather is wonderful too! A little pricey, but well worth the money given the difference I am seeing and feeling. I will be a customer for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shampoo My stylist suggested that I add a shampoo to my routine that had proteins because my hair is fine and sensitive. I decided to give this one a try after doing some research and I am very happy with it. It leaves my hair soft, shiny, voluminous and strong. It also smells glorious. I am very pleased with this shampoo! I also wanted to pass along some info that I thought others might find useful: I decided to give my hair a break from coloring and highlighting. I have only done my roots for about 5 months now. It is absolutely the best thing I have ever done for my hair. It has gotten stronger and it is getting thicker; it’s much healthier now. If your hair is fine and/or weak, consider giving it a break from treatments. It is so worth it. And of course use a great shampoo like this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my oily roots and dry ends I love this shampoo, I started using it and my hair stopped breaking, I have oily roots and dry ends and works perfect, I wash it every 2 days and my hair does not get oily. And it smells good..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New formula isn’t good I used to love this shampoo. It really controlled my frizzy, dry hair with lots of split ends. I could go outside in the rain and my hair would remain calm. I used another brand for a while and just returned to this. What a disappointment! My hair looks really dry and frizzy since using the new formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I bought a month ago and I can see my hair totally different, it’s a way better than before

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results I usually use Kerastase different type of shampoos but this one is the best. I stopped using Kerastase for a while and my hair was turning fuzzy,frizzy, thin with split ends and I bought this one and results just showing after couple of washes.totally recommend it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Shampoo I purchased four days ago, I was told that it would replace the Bain Volumifique shampoo. I used the Volumifique shampoo for 12 years. The Bain Force Architecte is NOT a volume shampoo. It weigh down my hair. Please bring back a volume shampoo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for fragile highlighted hair I can't live without this stuff. I have fine, blonde highlighted hair. My hair gets so fragile it just breaks off at the ends. Bain Force Architecte shampoo stops my hair from breaking. I rotate my shampoo/conditioners and use Bain Force every third time I wash my hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shampoo ever! Only a few uses and I can feel my hair stronger and thicker. Can't wait for long term results. I am using the other products of the same resistance line and also the serum for the scalp. I am so happy! In just a few uses of everything my hair went for terrible extra dry, extra frizzy and extra ugly for really ok and acceptable to go out, it changed my confidence completely and every time I use my Kerastase products my hair gets better and better. Thank you Kerastase to save my life! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rebuilt my hair. :-) I love this shampoo, it saved my hair. I had big chunks breaking off because of too much coloring and bleaching, and this product was a savior. Seriously. Made my hair strong and healthy again somehow. Also love the smell and feel of it. I have 4 superstar favorites from Kerastase, this shampoo, the Fluidealiste shampoo, the Maskeratine mask and the Nectar Thermique leave-in product (it doesn`t show up under Nectar search though). My hair is sooo much improved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Necessity! Amazing! Saves my hair! A little go a long way! I have fine, fragile, blonde hair that is easily damaged. I use Bain Force Architecte shampoo and Ciment Anti-Usure conditioner. If I go more than two weeks without using it, my hair starts to break off. The catch...even though it prevents breakage in color treated hair, it can also fade it. So I use it in rotation with a purple shampoo. When I use the Resistance shampoo and conditioner, I apply Nectar Thermique before I blow dry. When I use a purple shampoo, I use Ciment Thermique before I blow dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will use this for life I have been using this shampoo for 20 years. It takes a much smaller amount of shampoo as other brands. People comment about my thick hair which is unusual since a ponytail would be as thick as my thumb. I have used other Kerastace products like the topseal and been pleased. What a wonderful discovery!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells amazing!!! Kerastase resistance smells amazing! Like fresh apples and made my hair smell the same. This cream does work. I received the product free from Influenster, but these opinions are my own.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sulfate free I really wish this shampoo was sulfate free. I recently only started using shampoos that do not contain sulfates as I noticed a huge difference in my hair. I'm disappointed this isn't sulfate free because I really won't use it. I received this product free for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shampoo This was my first time using Kerastase products and I was blown away! My hair is very fine and can be weighed down easily. However, this product didn't do that! My hair was soft and manageable. I did receive the product free from Influenster, but these opinions are my own.
Date published: 2016-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I started using this shampoo like 2 weeks ago and I must confess it saved my hair. I was using a cheaper shampoo before this one and my hair was frizzy and definitely not healthy. But since the first time I tried kerastase my hair felt so smooth and shinning. I have long curly hair so I'm definitely love with the results. I received this product free for testing purposes from Influenster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells amazing! I was so excited when I was asked to join this campaign for Influenster. As soon as I received the shampoo I tried it out immediately. I have been using it the last few weeks and I love the way it makes my hair feel. It also smells amazing! This product was sent to me for review purposes by Influenster.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from High Hopes I received this shampoo for free through influenster and I was extremely excited to try it out! I heard great things about this brand and my hair is very tangly and needs some TLC. Unfortunately, I didn't see a difference in my hair and had to use detangler. After 3 weeks of using it, I went back to my cheaper brand of shampoo and immediately noticed my hair was smoother. I really wanted to love this product, my hair just didn't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expensive... I really enjoyed using this shampoo, it made me feel like I was having a very luxurious shower. However, it did not do anything for my hair that my Nexxus shampoo for length doesn't - and that's $30 cheaper. I did enjoy the fragrance and it's definitely a nice treat if the price tag is in your budget. I received this product for testing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for dry and damaged hair! I have dry hair and scalp and with constant heat styling my hair looks dull and brittle. Especially at the ends I feel my hair looked really damaged. I have tried the Kerastase Resistance line of shampoo and it has done wonders to my hair after 3 weeks of use. I shampoo two or three times a week. This shampoo is creamy and lathers up easily and is super moisturizing. Even for my very dry hair I only need small amount in my palm and I have shoulder length hair. I would really recommend to use little bit of product to get idea how much you really need. The formula is highly moisturizing so much that i do not need conditioner after shampoo. I have actually skipped applying conditioner since using this shampoo. That's how soft and silky my hair is. You might feel it weighs down hair a bit if you use too much product especially if oily hair so use less at first. After 3 weeks my hair is shiny and healthy, ends of hair look smooth. The ends of my hair no longer look brittle and damaged. Totally worth the price. If you feel price is high then after getting results you can use it once week and alternate it with another drug store shampoo to maintain healthy and shiny hair. If you like to splurge like me then you would absolutely love this product. I received product free for testing and this s my honest review after using the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek & Shiny! I have been using this product for a couple weeks now and there is a noticeable difference in my hair. I have brittle hair at the ends and oily hair at my roots. I have to wash my hair every other day because my hair is so oily, but my ends are much healthier after using this product. I did receive this product to review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the good stuff! I was sent this to try out and review! I was really excited when I tested this product because I know this brand is a amazing quality brand and my hair needs amazing qualtity shampoo. This shampoo doesn't bubble and really maneuvers easlity around the scalp and does not make me scratch my scalp to feel that shampoo working.You also don't need to use too much of this and I want to mention my hair is long, and I use about a nickle size and that is more than enough! This is really the good stuff! I also want to mention that I have tried this product about 3-4 times, to give a really honest review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real game changer! I was sent this in an influenster vox box and immediately put it to use. I have really dry, color treated hair and this made my hair feel so clean without drying it out. My hair feels stronger and overall looks healthier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I am obsessed with this shampoo/conditioner! It's a deep cleanser without stripping out the hair. The deep conditioner does not weigh my hair down or add gunk! I was my hair once a week & usually with deep conditioners, I have to wash my hair earlier then I normally would because it feels dirty. I will purchase this again! I received this product through an Influenster campaign & am sharing an honest review:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong hair is healthy hair I've been using this the Resistance Bain de Force Architecte Shampoo and Masque for the past month and I cannot believe how much stronger my hair has become! I have fine hair (meaning each strand is thin and delicate) of medium density. My hair is waist length, I blow dry and heat style after every shampoo, and I like to get balayage (with bleach) once or twice a year, so I really have to pamper my hair to keep it from breaking off. Since starting using this Shampoo and Masque, my hair has become so much stronger and more resilient. I don't have to baby it as much and I don't have any breakage or split ends, despite being long overdue for a trim. My hair also feels fuller and softer since I've started using this shampoo. It has an herbal-citrus scent that is pleasing, though it doesn't linger long after a shower. It also lathers nicely, which I really enjoy because my hair just doesn't feel clean without a good lather. It's hard to find a shampoo that lathers nicely and makes your hair feel clean without having a harsh, stripping effect, but this shampoo manages to do both while leaving hair lightly moisturized. I received the Resistance Bain de Force Architecte Shampoo and Masque courtesy of Influenster in exchange for my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my hair look amazing I have thick, coarse hair that seems to need a lot of TLC. So during the winter I really like to use a lot of masks because with the heater on a lot I seem to get dried out. So I got the opportunity to try this along with the conditioner and I have to say I am thoroughly impressed. At first I wasn't sure I would be on board, I mean lets be honest this isn't the cheapest shampoo and conditioner out there. Initially I washed my hair twice with the shampoo to clear out my hair good, but found that with one shampoo it really does do the trick. I let it sit in my hair for about 5 minutes before I rinse it out. I didn't find this to dry out my hair or scalp and in fact I really felt that It nourished my scalp. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and my hair looks amazing! I would recommend it and plan on continuing to use this line, my hair seems to really like it. I received this item free for testing and review purposes. All opinions and experiences are my own.
