Which range is right for me?
Elixir Ultime – All hair types
The Elixir Ultime Range has been designed to treat all hair types, with various products for finer, thicker or slightly drier hair textures. The Bain Elixir Ultime is a blend of unique oils which provide moisture and hydration without weighing the hair down or leaving excess oils on the hair. The Riche version of the shampoo is for slightly drier or thicker hair, as it is formulated with both coconut oil and shea butter, which provide intense hydration and nourishment. After shampooing, all hair types can be treated to the Elixir Ultime Cataplasme Masque which acts as an everyday conditioner, or can be used more intensely as a masque when applied longer. Enriched with lipidic compounds which provide key nourishment to the hair fibres, hair feels healthier and shines with vitality.
Resistance Volumifique Bain – Fine hair which needs volume
This shampoo has been specifically designed for finer hair which needs a voluminous lift. Containing Cellulose Powder which thickens each hair fibre for intensified volume, and its trademark “Intra-Cylane” which provides a long-hasting hold on the internal structure of the hair fibres to ensure all day volume, the Volumifique Bain works seamlessly to bring life to limp hair.
Densifique – Thinning Hair
Thinning Hair can be hard to treat with products, as most often, the hair that remains is quite fine and most products can be too heavy and weigh the hair down. The Densifique Range works gently to cleanse the hair and not irritate the scalp, while leaving your hair feeling denser and more resistant to damage. Enriched with hyaluronic acid which works to plump the hair fibre for more volume, the range is excellent for providing key nutrients to thinning hair so it can exude health and vitality. After shampooing and conditioning, follow up with the Densifique Density Activator which is brimming with key B vitamins and Stemoxydine, which helps to maintain hair density and encourage the creation of visible hair mass. Reflection – Colour Protection and Hydration
Coloured or highlighted hair needs extra protection in order to keep the hair fibres healthy and protected from the colourant, and moisture to keep the colourant hydrated and glossy. The Reflection Range is perfect for keeping coloured hair shiny and for retaining its vitality. Containing UV filters to protect the colour from sun damage, along with Vitamin E which helps to keep hair healthy and strong, the range is nourishing and enhances your own hair colour’s vivacity, helping to keep the colourant strong and bright.
Cristalliste – Sensitive Hair
The Cristalliste Range is the first collection of products from Kérastase to be free from silicones, parabens and colourants, which are perfect for people who have sensitive skin and scalps. Described as a “luminous, perfecting shampoo,” the products contain a unique blend of Kérastase patented “liquid light” complex which works to seal the hair shaft and smooth the hair fibres to leave it looking healthy, sleek and glossy. Although it is free from parabens which act as foaming agents, the Cristalliste Bain Shampoos’ is an ultra-foaming formula which gently cleanses the hair and scalp to leave it looking clean and refreshed. With separate products for people who have fine hair (Cristalliste Bain Cheveux Fins) and thicker hair (Cristalliste Bain Cheveux Épais), the range is perfect for people who are sensitive to cosmetic ingredients and who want to give their hair a new, luminous lease of life.
Nutritive – Dry and Damaged Hair
As the name suggests, the Nutritive Range provides key nutrients and nourishment to the hair shaft and fibres, giving them essential moisture and hydration to enrich dry and damaged hair. Containing silicone derivatives and glucose proteins, they provide essential moisture and help to smooth the hair fibres to leave hair looking sleek and glossy instead of dry and parched. Their iconic range, the Nutritive products were developed to regain healthy hair and add lustre to damaged locks. Containing a whole host of cleansers, conditions, treatments and styling agents, the range is excellent for those who want to restore health and vitality to their hair.
