Kerastase Resistance Therapiste Review

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

DISCLOSURE: I received free products from Influenster to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

I have super thick hair. It's not curly, but has somewhat of a wave. I blow dry it straight and use a flat iron almost daily. I also color it somewhat regularly to cover up the grays. All of this leaves my hair pretty damaged. I have split ends and often my hair just feels dry and looks dull and frizzy. I've tried numerous moisturizing and strengthening shampoos and conditioners, but haven't really seen any improvement.

Recently, I had the chance to try Kerastase Resistance Therapiste. The brand was new to me. I've heard of it but never tried it before. The Resistance Therapiste line is meant to give over-processed, very damaged hair a second life. This sounded like exactly what my hair needed!

Soin Premier Therapiste

Soin Premier Therapiste is a Reverse Care Conditioner that's meant to be used PRIOR to shampooing. It protects and repairs very damaged, over-processed hair without weighing it down.

I had never used conditioner before shampoo, so that was interesting. I have to say, though, this stuff is amazing! As soon as I rinsed it out in the shower, my hair instantly felt softer and smoother! I couldn't believe it!

The conditioner rinsed out easily and I loved how it made my hair feel. Even on subsequent days, my hair still felt soft and smooth in the shower. 

Bain Therapiste

Bain Therapiste is an extra-creamy shampoo for over-processed and damaged hair. It can be used on fine, medium and thick hair. Its texture allows it to repair the hair fiber while gently cleansing. It surrounds the hair fiber to reduce friction.

I have really come to like shampooing at the end of my shower! It means as soon as I rinse the shampoo off, I'm done! Ha! I probably didn't save any time using conditioner first, but for some reason, it just makes my shower seem faster. 

The Bain Therapiste lathered well and rinsed completely. I feared that it would rinse out all the smoothness the Soin Premier Therapiste put in my hair, but it didn't!

Kerastase Resistance Therapiste left my hair feeling so soft and smooth. It was a lot shinier too. BUT, I did notice that I still needed to blow dry and flat iron my hair. When I let it air dry, it was still a frizzy, wavy mess.

Overall, I've been happy with using the Resistance Therapiste line and I'll be sad when I run out! Kerastase can be purchased at salons. Use their Salon Finder to find one closest to you that carries the brand. Soin Premier Therapiste retails for $42 for a 200 ml bottle. Bain Therapiste retails for $40 for a 250 ml bottle.
