Something New: Kerastase Chroma Sensitive Cleansing Balm.

Kerastase Chroma Sensitive

I was extremely excited as soon as it arrived at my very doorstep (coz this is the first package that did not require me to ask and pick it up from the guard LOL). Who wouldn’t be? It’s Kerastase after all–one of the best hair care brands I’ve ever tried! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, so I took a quick snap of it as soon as I brought it with me to my room. Much to my surprise, I got my dream product inside!

Ta-dah! Kerastase Chroma Sensitive Cleansing Balm ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve been searching for the “right” product as soon as I got my hair coloured and highlighted a month ago. My old hair colour turned out to be a disaster, so I asked for Basement Salon‘s hairstylist, Roli Paraoan, to help me with my hair woes. I’m so glad that he did a great job with my hair colour, that’s why I’ve been trying my very best to preserve its pristine condition. ๐Ÿ˜›

So I guess, here’s my answer. I’m destined to be with Kerastase Chroma Sensitive. It has hair cleansing and colour preserving properties that can be used alternatively with my everyday shampoo (+ masque).ย  It’s sulfate, paraben and silicone free, which makes it one of the gentlest products in the Kerastase line.

Here’s what it says about the product:

Chroma Sensitive boasts of its Colour-Protect System, created by the L’Oreal Advanced Research laboratories. A concentrate of mildness and care that offers maximum respect for colour-treated hair. It consists of a quarter of a low-foaming cleansing base, reduced in tensio-active agents and 3/4 of a caring base, rich in antioxidant Vitamin E.

It has a lightweight, creamy consistency comparable to a hair masque. I’m not a fan of the smell though, but it’s just me. ๐Ÿ˜› Maybe I’ve already got used to Oleo Relax line’s sweeet scent. Of course, the deliriously excited kid in me made me hit the shower and try the product in a jiffy! ๐Ÿ˜€ For a shampoo alternative, it doesn’t lather much. But, need not to worry, coz it’s especially developed using newfangled cleansing ingredientsย  which do not create that much lather volume but cleanse the hair effectively.

I applied it like a hair masque. Rinsing wasn’t so much of a problem, perhaps as long as I steer clear of putting way too much product on my locks lest it may weigh it down. Immediately, I noticed that my hair feels much softer without having to use a conditioner! I can’t still say whether it actually retains my hair colour or not since I just used it once. ๐Ÿ™‚

Price: Php 1,425 for a 200 ml bottle.

PS: You can also try the Hair Colour Sealing Treatment (using Kerastase Pixelist) which starts at Php 1,500 and is available at salons (try Bench Fix Lab in Glorietta 4, Makati). ๐Ÿ˜‰
