“ Brand: Kerastase / Helps against: Anti-Dandruff / What it does: Purifies, Nourishes „
Im writing about Kerastase Bain Recharge wash out Conditioner NOT Bain Gommage - not sure if this is relevant but need to tell everyone! Its is the absolute best conditioner I have ever used. Yep Im the gal who likes to go black to blonde whichmeans my hair sufferes alot of processing and is in need of extreme care and attention post-hairdresser visits. I try to avoid doing too much to it for about 2 weeks after but once its less stressed then can curl and style as usual. Try not to use too much as it can weigh limp hair down but over time the shine and vitality is definitely restored! Simply one of the very best! I want to try the serum soon...
I started using Kerastase Specifique Bain Gommage a couple of weeks ago after a bottle appeared in our bathroom and to be honest, I kind of fancied checking out whether a change in my brand of anti-dandruff shampoo would produce any better results than Pantene Pro V, my usual brand.
Over a few months I have become a little disillusioned with Pantene Pro V as for no reason whatsoever I have started getting an itchy, flakey scalp as soon as my hair dries completely and this has led to one of two flakes that leave my self confidence in the gutter. Nobody likes the thought of a snow drift on the shoulders of their black suit and I am no different so a change was more than welcome. It wasnt until my wife asked whether I had been squirting her expensive shampoo down the drain that I discovered that she had paid £12 for a 250ml bottle. I nearly had heart failure. £12 for a bottle of shampoo, what is the world coming to?
A £12 a bottle I would expect the shampoo to not only wash my hair but also cut it! Does it really represent good value for money though, that is the main question and with my own personal predicament if it solved the dry, itchy and flakey scalp problem and left my hair feeling soft and looking visibly healthy I probably would have no issues with spending so much on such a product.
Kerastase Specifique Bain Gommage is produced by LOreal Paris and claims to gently eliminate dandruff and slows down it reappearance, whilst selectively nourishing sensitized lengths of hairs. What the second claim is Im not entirely sure to be honest but the results after using the shampoo for a week were impressive.
Unlike most other anti-dandruff shampoos, Kerastase Specifique Bain Gommage does not produce huge amounts of lather even when large amounts of the shampoo are used. When I first decided to try this I did use quite a lot to try and generate a rich lather but alas this was not to be. In normal circumstances only a tiny amount of the shampoo is needed to produce a rather thin, bodiless lather which makes it easier to massage into hair, the roots and massage my scalp. It is also incredibly easy to rinse from hair.
As far the fragrance of the shampoo is concerned it is fairly inoffensive and somewhat understated in comparison to other similar brands. It is more of a heavy perfume associated with cleanliness rather than detectable fragrances.
After using the shampoo for a week I found that my hair had a visible shine to it prior to adding any other hair products and seem stronger yet the dry itchy scalp and associated flakes were still there and continued to get worse as the day progressed. Things at this point didnt look good and I had prepared a review of the product completely slamming the claims that it has anti-dandruff properties but in the interests of research I continued to use it and I am delighted that I did. The results in the first week were a disappointment, but in weeks 2 and 3 my hair was still clearly healthier and the itchy patch at the back of my head had completely cleared up, and this in turn stopped the flaking. Result!
With Kerastase Specifique Bain Gommage a little goes a long way so although a 250ml bottle will cost £12 in the shops, it will last approximately 75% as long as a cheaper brand and deliver results that are significantly better. I am very happy that I decided to use this and will continue to do so in the future despite the price as I believe that the results and length of life make this good value for money.
Thanks for taking the time to read and rate.
