This is hands down the best shampoo I have ever used in my life. And I've tried a lot (too many) including others from Kerastase.

I have long (mid to lower back) hair that I straighten every day and used to dye regularly. Because of this it's very dry and damaged and just generally needs an extra bit of TLC. While I have several favourite treatments and conditioners etc. shampoo has always been one of those things that hasn't made too much difference to me. I'd have ones I preferred but there was nothing that ever made me go wow o.0

I am incredibly fussy when it comes to scents and there are so many products that I dislike using just because I'm not a fan of how they smell, but this is lovely. I'm dreadful when it comes to knowing what things smell like so honestly can't tell you what the fragrance is, but it's light and fresh and I just really enjoy it. Not quite as nice as the Ciment Thermique from the same Kerastase range, but still lovely.

I tend to be more cautious when using this than I would other shampoos, making sure I don't use too much because of the price, but I do still get a nice lather using less than I would with other cheaper shampoos, so I guess that makes the price difference a little smaller ^^

This is one of those products where you can feel the difference it makes to your hair as soon as you're rinsing it out and it actually leaves my hair feeling more conditioned than most shampoos do. I have had other 'conditioning' shampoos before but they often tend to build up quite quickly and I find encourage my hair to get greasy, this doesn't do that at all. It cleanses well but also leaves it feeling conditioned.

As far how my hair is after drying and styling it definitely feels softer when I've used this shampoo and it also feels stronger. I often end up running my fingers through my hair because it feels so good, and unlike I often do my fingers don't get stuck in dry ends and breaking bits off.

The price is the obvious downside, I believe the RRP is around £16 but I often see Kerastase with 10 or 15% off online so you can usually get it closer to the £13 or £14 mark. It's a 250ml bottle which is pretty standard for shampoos and my usual shampoos are around £6 so it's a pretty big difference, at least double the price. But as I mentioned earlier because of the price I am more cautious not to waste any, so a bottle of this will last me longer than a bottle of my normal shampoo. I also try and use another shampoo every couple of washes (originally it was every other wash but I missed this one too much) just to make my bottle last that little bit longer.

I was tempted to give it 5* for value for money just because of the difference it makes to my hair and while I might not be exactly thrilled to pay double my usual for a shampoo I do because I've never found a shampoo that even comes close to this.

A little expensive for a shampoo.
Summary
I first used this many years ago when you could only get it in salon. This really helped strengthen my fine, damaged hair that was highlighted every couple of months, and straightened every day! My hair has always been difficult to comb through when wet, but after using this (with the conditioner in the same range) my hair was so smooth and easy to comb through. My hair did actually feel stronger and less fragile and was much easier to style. I really like the smell of this shampoo, it has an expensive perfume fragrance which is very pleasant. You do only need a small amount of this, ahem, ‘hair bath’ to get a rich creamy lather. Usually I have to slather on conditioner straight away to make my hair feel like hair again, but I found this shampoo very conditioning. I have used many 'salon only' products and the Bain de Force range from Kerastase is the most effective for dry, damaged hair, in my opinion.
