What the brand says: Introducing the first deep emollient light refracting hair care for damaged, coloured, highlighted or sensitised hair. Kérastase Reflection Bain Chroma Riche is a luminous softening shampoo that delivers mirror-like radiance to your hair. Formulated with Kérastase’s Aqua-Ionic System, it re-sources with essential elements and fills the fibre with micro prisms and light refractors; UV filters; and vitamin E to protect from UV rays and photo-oxidation related damage. Reflection Bain Chroma Riche enhances your colours vivacity and deepness, leaving your hair with a ‘hydrated-like’ fibre touch.
MY TAKE ON KERASTASE BAIN CHROMA RICHE SHAMPOO
Packaging: The shampoo comes in this really pretty burgundy transparent bottle and looks great in the bathroom shelf! The shampoo bottle is quite sturdy and travel friendly.
Texture: The shampoo is transparent unlike Kerastase Reflection Bain Chroma Captive shampoo and has a hint of pink color. Little goes a long way and it foams very well.
Fragrance: The shampoo smells deliciously sweet but it isn’t OTT which I like.
How I use and after-effects: To use, simply wet your hair, take dollop of shampoo and work it well into the scalp and hair. Massage for few minutes and wash it off. For the second wash, I like putting a tiny amount into mug full of water and pouring it into my hair and then massaging- this way you do not use a lot of product and it effectively reaches every corner of your scalp and hair. Rinse off and air dry.
I have not used shampoo for years (you can read my no-shampoo journey here) but since I colored my hair, I had to use something to keep my hair naturally soft and damage-free. I alternate between natural treatments and this shampoo and so far it is working great! I am using this shampoo from past 1 month and I cannot stop raving about it already. The shampoo not only cleanses the scalp well but also adds a healthy shine to your hair. I wasn’t expecting my hair to reflect light after so much of coloring but I am so happy with the fact that my hair shines and looks so much healthier as compared to how it looked even before I got it colored. The shampoo smells amazing and I like the fact that the fragrance stays for good 2-3 days. Also, I would like to mention that this is the exact same product salons use when you go for a hair spa for colored treated hair, so you are getting an at-home salon treatment every time you wash your hair! I always had this problem of oily scalp the very next day of washing hair, but my hair looks and feels fresh for good 4-5 days! This can also be the result of going no-shampoo for years but one thing is sure that this shampoo doesn’t really strip natural hair oils as much as other shampoos do. Overall, I am loving this shampoo to bits and yes, my hair as well!
