Hello BeautyBoosters! Hope you’re having a great week so far! The weather might be pretty grey and grim in London but I was lucky enough to experience the new Cristalliste range from Kerastase this week which definitely brightened up my day. The launch was held at the great Clipso salon on Windmill Street in W1 London and it was a lovely location to showcase this brilliant range.
As I’ve come to expect with Kerastase, their products always look great and deliver fantastic results and the new Cristalliste range doesn’t disappoint. The pretty-in-pink bottles make up a 3-step system which is enriched with a ‘Liquid Light’ complex. Hair is left looking luminous, shiny and feeling feather light.
My fine hair is that annoying combination of slightly oily roots and dry ends but this range is actually perfect for combatting these issues. The Bain Cristal shampoo has options for fine and thick hair and this first step lathers into a luxurious, nourishing foam to cleanse the roots. It smells amazing! This is then followed up with Lait Cristal conditioner which is specifically for dry lengths and ends and detangles hair leaving it feeling soft and just-stepped-out-of-the-salon-swishy! The final stage is the texturising Lumiere Liquide. I’ve always stayed away from serums in the past as I’ve been worried that they would weigh down my fine hair but this feels very different to ones I’ve tested in the past. It doesn’t have that gel or oily texture you would expect, it actually feels more like water and after running it through the ends of my hair you wouldn’t even know it was there. This final leave-in treatment instantly smoothes the hair and gives that final ‘polish’ so to speak, whilst still feeling very natural.
Whilst I was there I also experienced a new ‘hair health’ tool being used by certain salons. It’s a Kerastase camera which examines the health of your scalp and hair and really helps to pinpoint any issues you’ve had with your hair so that your stylist can pick and prescribe the best treatments for you. It’s quite odd but seeing your hair and scalp up close really makes you examine how you’ve been treating your hair (and I’ve been testing it to it’s limits with styling lately!) I’m happy to report that despite my eternal love for straightening and curling it’s not faring too badly. Here’s a close up so you can see what I’m talking about!
Big thankyou to everyone involved at the launch and to my lovely stylist Carly who gives the best head massages ever! Here’s the finished result :)
