Unless you’re currently living that Maybach/Balmain/Cartier life, one can’t exactly call Kérastase “budget,” since their shampoos and conditioners are in the mid-$30 range, but if you like their products, or you’ve wanted to try their products, FYI, price cut!
In most cases, they’ve dropped their prices between $2 and $8, which isn’t bad. It makes them a little more accessible.
I’ve been testing a few things I haven’t used before from their Reflection line for color-treated hair — Bain Chromatique Sulfate-Free Shampoo ($30), Fondant Chromatique Conditioner ($34) and Masque Chromatique ($53).
No idea how they compare to their previous pricier versions, because I never used them before, but the company says that the formulas have all remained the same. They just cost a little less.
I started using them this month, and my wavy, dyed hair, which is normally on the drier side, looks noticeably smoother and shinier to me. It also doesn’t feel weighed down. No flakes on my scalp, either, and these don’t strip my color…which is good, considering that they’re designed to not do that.
Performance-wise, these are definitely comparable to Bumble & Bumble and R+Co. Quite good…but still a tad pricey for what you get.
❤️❤️❤️ 3 out of 5 hearts.
Did you know? Sometimes when I get into the shower and want to save some time, I coat the midshaft and ends with conditioner, then shampoo my roots only. It’s quicker than doing a full-on conditioner wash, but it still helps if your ends are super dry.
