“This makes my hair feel like silk and is a tidy price too. I also use the matching shampoo. I’ve got fine hair so can’t have anything too heavy or I look like a dull mess. This makes my hair feel really moisturised and happy!”
“My hairdresser recommended this coloured hair conditioner and they use this themselves at home which is always a good sign. I have a bob so don’t need a lot and for the price it works perfectly.”
No top ten hair ANYTHING list is complete without Kerastase. Combine this with Kerastase Reflection Bain Chromatique Riche Shampoo and you’ll really notice your colour pop.
This is a long time fave of ours after having people give us lots of hair compliments when we use it – and who doesn’t love those!

“What they say is true about this product. I also use the root touch up and my trips to the hairdresser are really stretched out now!”
“My colour definitely seems to pop more after I use this. I’ve recommended it to my friends every time they’ve commented on my hair looking good. It’s worth investing in great products if your investing in colouring your hair.”
This specially formulated conditioner is from the people that brought us COLOUR WOW Root Cover Up – and wow, they really care about our coloured hair. we tried the one for THICK HAIR which is quite rich and may weigh down finer manes, so make sure you pick the right one for your hair type. We’re yet to try their shampoo but maybe now we will.

- Great results, especially along with the Color Wow Security shampoo.

- ‘Normal-to-Thick’, a smoothing, cuticle-sealing formula for normal, coarse or curly colour-treated hair.
- No parabens or waxy ingredients that can dull the hair.
- Available in two formulas.
- Also a smallish tube but bigger than the Kerastase one. Make these bigger people!
- That’s it!
