The Cleansing Duo You Need For
Fresh, Healthy Hair

Feel like your hair is never quite clean enough? Meet the
cleansing duo that will leave your hair feeling its fresh best.

When it comes to lasting hair freshness, it’s well worth leaning on cleansers that will effectively remove unwanted sebum from your scalp (goodbye greasy roots and odor) without stripping your hair of the much-needed moisture that leaves strands shiny and easy to style. You don’t need to wash your hair more to keep it fresh, you just need to wash it with products specifically formulated to support hair freshness, and Kérastase has created a new duo of cleansers that does just that. Keep reading to find out more about these shampoos for dry strands and an oily, greasy scalp.

Meet the Spécifique Hair Products for Fresher Hair

Part of the new Spécifique hair care range, there are two cleansing products designed to tackle an oily scalp and greasy roots while hydrating dry, sensitized ends. Both contain Amino Acid that gently cleanses the scalp and strands, attracting dirt like a magnet into micelles that can be easily rinsed away. These Amino Acid also works hard to balance healthy pH levels allowing for a super gentle cleanse. Amino Acid is also conditioning and reinforcing, it protects hair from environmental aggressors and assists weakened strands to hold onto much-needed moisture. Bain Divalent shampoo contains those all-important Amino Acid, alongside Vitamin B6, to effectively cleanse and balance oily roots and dry, sensitized ends without stripping them of moisture.

Our new cleansing clay, Argile Equilibrante also boasts this all-important Amino Acid ingredient alongside Kaolin Clay that draws sebum and impurities out of the scalp like a magnet. Used once a week instead of Bain Divalent, the clay purifies the scalp without stripping delicate strands.

Spécifique: Perfumed for Lasting Freshness

To work in synergy with the active ingredients, Kérastase has formulated two freshness-boosting fragrances and woven them into these cleansing formulas. The new look Bain Divalent still boasts the iconic Divalent fragrance, known as Royal 06.





A fresh scent that’s already loved by many for its aroma that invigorates the senses. With hints of Indian Basil, Freesia and Sandalwood, this fragrance leaves hair smelling beautifully clean.

The Argile Equilibrante is scented with a fragrance we call Drop of Cloud. An airy composition, it is inspired by the fresh scent of skincare products. A heavenly scent it mingles hints of Earl Grey tea, with a generous roundness of Rose Essence and Cedarwood that softens the fragrance. It’s a treat for your scalp, strands and senses.
