Getting better my surface of hair and scalp
17 November 2015 by
This product is absolutely fantastic! Since I started using Advance Scalp and Hair Concentrate my itchy scalp is a nightmare of the past. My scalp feels so clean and itch free I can hardly believe it. I would recommend this to anyone with this irritating problem. You'll not regret it!

This product smells so nice, like a flower garden! It made my hair very soft and shiny, ever since i started using this 2 months ago. I have trouble growing my hair, because i dye and flat-iron them regularly but this product made my hair grow just a little bit faster and so much healthier. Usually my hair needs trimming after 2 months, but no split ends and no breakage so far!

While kerastase is defiantly my favorite hair care brand, this is my least favorite. I have noticed that when I use it my scalp starts to flake. However, having read all the positive reviews on here, maybe it just doesn't suit me.
25 September 2015 by
Would highly recommend Kerastase Initialiste - this product really does work. Great for strengthening new hair, conditioning and giving shine.

Smells lovely, have been using for over a week now, and don't see any difference in how my hair feels, I don't like the texture and also don't feel it covers the whole scalp without using at least 3 pumps, quite disappointed as was really excited to try and was hoping to see a change!

I absolutely love this product - and it is a brilliant price on this website. Going to continue getting from here in future.

I was a it sceptic when I read these review. I have mid length dyed blonde highlighted hair which is frizzy curly (sounds lovely) which was ruined by a hairdresser that basically made the half a head she would highlight snap making the top of my n the side of my hair in very bad condition n shorter than the rest of my hair!
I bought this thinking il give it a shot but wasn't expecting much n literally within 6 weeks the difference is amazing my hair drys so easily n is so soft! Not just that it is thick and has literally grown so much and no longer looks like I have a mullet!
I have had also so many compliments, people constantly asking have I just got my hair done which I have not n my roots show that, worth every single penny

This is making my hair feel very healthy!

Makes my thin and fizzy hair smoother and easier to manage. Smells nice, but not too aggressive. I also believe it helps with hair loss.

My hairdresser at Vidal Sasson gave me a bottle of this product and the results were amazing. I have used others, such as bosley, but my hair gets very dry. You sell this at a really good price and Iexpect to be usingit for a long,long time Thanks for asking me.

I purchased this from Lookfantastic and started using it in October 2014. I have coloured shoulder length hair which has been thinning over the years and shedding more than I would like. I use this product as directed after each hair wash (2-3 per week) and sometimes the day after as well. My hairdresser commented a few days ago, that my hair has grown much more than usual since my last trim in October 2014; at least an extra inch! I do not feel my hair is any thicker but I do have new hair growth around my forehead which is still very wispy, but it is there! Still a lot of hair in the shower drain and on my brush but, I am going to keep using as long as I can get a good price. My salon charges Eur100+ for this product!!! It is easy to apply and does not make my scalp itch or dry like some other hair thinning/growth promoting products I have tried.

This product definitely works for me. It arrived early this December so I am using it for 3 weeks now and can see the difference already. I have always had thin hair on the sides, top and crown but somehow it looks much fuller and healthier. Another tell tell sign is the hair left in the shower strainer, hardly any in the last couple of weeks. I am not sure how it works but this seems to be the first product doing the trick for me so really happy for now. Thank you.
26 December 2014 by
I know the product from my friend who is a hairdresser in China, and my hair is too damaged and dry.each time I use this item, it helps me do massage to my scalp,and now I feel my hair more healthier after I use it! Love it!
16 December 2014 by
Thank you Kérastase for this amazing product, I have never had this long and thick hair before in my life! My friends and family keep telling me my hair has gotten so long. I absolutely love this product and Im so happy for the results and the improvement of my hair. Ive used 4 bottles so far, one every 6 months. If you consider buying it, BUY IT! You will hopefully be as happy as I am with it! Love it!

I have fine, slightly sensitised coloured hair. Having recently moved from a full head of highlights to a more natural bayalage look I thought I'd invest in my scalp and improve my general hair condition - although I don't have any real concerns with breakage or colour damage. I have to say I haven't noticed any realy improvement in hair texture, definitely no more volume or thickness. My hair is shinier through the roots - not greasy - but I'm not sure if this is the brown tones rather than brightening of any of the coloured sections. I've only been using for a few weeks so will stick with it and see what results may be longer term. A nice product, just not the much hyped wonder product of previous reviews.
2 December 2014 by
I like this product very much! My hair looking healthier than ever before. I got fast, noticeable results. So I am happy. And thank you for delivery!
14 November 2014 by
This product is absolutely wonderful! I had a horrible post-pregnancy hair loss and after a couple of application, the hair loss stopped! My hair feels soft and much healthier. I hope it will stimulate hair growth as well, we'll see.
8 October 2014 by
I love this product! It definitely helped to strengthen my hair and I recently bought a second bottle as my first bottle lasted me 4 months!
6 October 2014 by
It smells pleasant.I have used it 5 times and I can already see new growth! I am VERY HAPPY to see them!
5 October 2014 by
The smell is so good! I've seen a few people say it's only good for thick hair otherwise it leaves it feeling flat or greasy but my hair's quite fine and it's great
3 October 2014 by
If here there was an option of giving this product more stars than 5, I would have done that.....but there was no option. This treatment is by far the best among the best. I had itchy scalp, dandruff, dry, unruly hair. When I use this I notice my hair becomes shinier, more healthy-looking, manageable and dries quickly when blow drying it. It also helped my hair to get longer after only using it six times. It is wonderful. The smell is awesome and the results are by far better than other products like Nioxin. Kerastase is the best brand ever invented and I only wish I have discovered it before. Although this is a bit pricy and also a luxury to the hair it is worth every penny. I have asked several hairdressers about how can I lengthen my hair. They recommended extensions, treatments and so on. I did all this. This product was the solution to all. I only do 2, three-quarters full pipettes and that's all.....then I massage my scalp and it does wonders!! Worth every penny!!
14 August 2014 by
Normally a big fan of Kerastase products. But this was really a waste of money. I have fine wavy fair which breaks around my temples, however the rest of my hair is in good condition. This has made no difference at all to the breakage or hair loss, which I loose a lot every day when brushing. My hairstylist can see no difference in my hair either.
12 August 2014 by
Used it 3 times till now, so far: smells goods, lifts hair a bit from scalp (I have thin long non treated hair, a bit greasy), doesn't make my scalp oily. Gonna see other effects when I prolong usage.
25 June 2014 by
I hope it can imporve my hair condition.
8 June 2014 by
I love this so much. It smells amazing!!! And not just the smell, the actual product is fantastic, my hair is dry, frizzy with oily roots, but this serum is not oily at all, liquid feels so fresh and smooth during application, hair is not weighed down at all, scalp feels calmer. I dry my hair naturally without hair drier and it now dries smoother and frizz free on top of my head where this is applied, hair feels very soft. Too early to say if it helps with growth of hair, but it's good enough for me already to keep using.
14 April 2014 by
Just got this. I really do not have a lot of hair. I can already see new growth.
10 April 2014 by
Overall, Kerestase is THE best product and this one is by far the Rolls-roace. What I enjoy the most is the compliments I receive when I use the scalp and hair concentrate. It makes me feel like a woman. It smells fantastic, my hair looks and feel so good. It leaves a beautiful shine and it lasts for a couple of washes. You don't have to use much at a time. I am absolutely head over hills in love with Kerestase (using the product now for 8 years) and will never change. It is expensive but every penny worth!!,
8 April 2014 by
I just ordered my second bottle and really noticed a difference when I ran out and had to stop using it for awhile. I can hardly wait for it to be delivered! I have a good share of thin blonde hair. When I use Initialiste I notice a huge difference! My hair feels smoother, stronger and thicker. People comment on how shiny it looks! This product even smells good! I honestly look forward to putting it in my hair every morning after I shower. I highly recommend it!
28 February 2014 by
My hair instantly feels silky & tangle free. Great for those who want poker straight hair. My over processed hair has never had such a brilliant shine. It's expensive, but worth every penny.
24 February 2014 by
I only give Kerastase Initialiste a 4 stars rating because i have only used it twice, but the shine and volume on my hair have improved .
18 February 2014 by
Hair of a waist grow quicker, became thickness at roots, brilliant. It was noticed by all my acquaintances.
15 February 2014 by
Love this product. My hair has been restored to its full shine and bounce. I recommend it!
5 February 2014 by
Cannot really fault Kerastase's products but this one really does the trick of thickening the hair naturally whilst maintaining the look of a healthy shine.
Before I discovered the magic of the shower filter, I used hard water to wash my hair and to this I suffered from minor hair loss though my hair is still relatively thick. I decided to try this product and MY GOD it's like the hair loss never happened.
Volumising shampoos can strip the hair and just dry it out, essentially thats where the volume comes from. But Kerastase Hair Concentrate makes it feel like as you massage the product into your scalp its food porn for your head!
Whilst giving yourself an opportunity to enjoy a little head massage!
A Must have :)

you see a visible difference in the health of the scalp

This product is really working.My hair is really thin and lack of strength. i can see it really protecting my new growing hair after several weeks using. i have already bought this product three times and continued to buy it from lookfantastic website. The price is really reasonable and free delivery.
9 December 2013 by
Initialiste is amazing, my hairdresser recommended it to me, but rather than paying extortionate salon prices I bought it from Look Fantastic!
This is my second bottle, the first lasted just over 7 months and you can visibly see my new hair which is about 3½ - 4 inches long now.
It's fabulous stuff and well worth the money if you want thick, healthy hair.
4 December 2013 by
Hair seems healthier after just 10 days of use. Will have to see in the long run, but definitely a product to try out.
2 November 2013 by
smells good hope it works
30 October 2013 by
Although I've only used this Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate approx 12 times, I wouldn't say I've noticed my hair being fortified, it definitely makes it feel velvety soft and luscious!
27 October 2013 by
Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate is ok, gives volume to the roots but leaves my thin dry hair a little coarse. Maybe it s about my hair type, but for me Fibre Architecte double serum worked better
A good product anyway, but not the best for thin hair. The next day i found it impossible to brush.
24 October 2013 by
I used Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate 3 times so far - nice smell, although having shoulder-length hair it's quite difficult to apply it to roots and scalp without using quite a lot of product. I didn't notice any incredible results yet, however hair feels really soft and nice in touch. I will see, how it goes but I'm not sure I will buy another bottle. however I love other Kerastase products and this will not put me off the whole brand.
22 October 2013 by
Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate really does stimulate hair growth - worth every penny.
11 October 2013 by
Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate is a great tool! I have blonde hair, after frequent colouring and the use of hard water to wash your hair, I have noticed that my hair is thinning. Seeing the LOOKFANTASTIC this tool decided to buy it. And not regret it! The tool is worth the money and helps. Each time after washing hair I RUB is a wonderful tool in the roots of the hair, and wash off, and then put as usual. And wow - hair stopped falling out, became more dense and elastic. Highly recommend.
3 October 2013 by
I have only been using this Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate for two weeks and I have noticed I difference. I have really fine hair and I can notice a change all ready.
18 September 2013 by
I have been using this Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate for about 6 months and it leaves my hair really shiny and strong without being greasy. It also lasts a long time as you only need a few drops, even on long hair. I'm still using the first bottle I originally bought so it's definitely worth the money.
17 September 2013 by
This Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate is fantastic! I notice a huge difference in my hair after only 7 treatments! It feels stronger and thicker. I also like the way it smells which makes it fun to put in my hair. The application process is very simple. I drizzle 2 syringes along my scalp and rub it through with my fingers. I do it on minimally towel dried hair every time i wash it. I highly recommend this product if you want your hair to feel thicker and less brittle. It may also be adding some shine but its hard to tell because I also use a Kerastase masque which also makes my hair pretty shiny. I say you can't go wrong with this product. It's worth every penny because you can count on good results!
6 September 2013 by
I have spent years moisturising - treatments - you name it and finally I found Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate, a product that gets to the root of the matter so to speak. I discovered this product because a coworker used it and I could not believe the difference in her hair. Now I can't believe the difference in my own. Easy to use and amazing results. The only drawback I would say is that you will become addicted to this product and never want to be without.
