Kerastase Shopping with Retail Box

Everything Beauty, Reviews By May 18, 2014

Last month for their Easter giveaway Retail Box sent me some goodies including a voucher which I was very excited to put to use immediately. Seriously, have you looked at their site? It is without a doubt the best online store for hair products. They are also slowly expanding into beauty products too so watch this space.

I decided to venture out of my usual hair care routine and try these two Kerastase products.


The Bain Divalent Balancing Shampoo is a smart balancing hair bath for combination hair, oily roots and sensitised lengths and ends. Recently my hair gets dirty far faster, I am not sure why but it has been quite annoying when my scalp is oily but my ends feel dry so I was really excited to discover this shampoo. After first use I was sorely disappointed. My hair looked oiler and felt strange. After the second wash however, it looked so much sleeker and did feel much more balanced. If anyone were to use this shampoo I have to re-iterate the massive difference as second initial wash and thereafter makes.

For conditioner I decided to try a different line from Kerastase. I don’t see what is so wrong with mixing up ones routine a bit. Lait Cristal Luminous Perfecting Conditioner Luminous Perfecting Conditioner For Long Hair.

Kérastase Cristalliste Lait Cristal Luminous Perfecting Conditioner rebalances the hair fiber. What it says it does…”Roots are left pure and weightless. Ends are smooth and polished. Hair is perfectly clean, luminous and weightless.”. Another reason for choosing this as the conditioner is the balance factor. It certainly works well with the Divalent Shampoo and my hair has been feeling so much softer and less frizzy. Also even though both are quite pricey, only a small amount is necessary.
