Review: Kérastase Nutritive - Mateja's Beauty Blog

Put together for an extended and film heavy put up. It has been greater than a month since I acquired these goodies and after some thorough testing, I am lastly feeling comfy writing a assessment. Initially, I used to be going to do a separate put up for every, nonetheless, I really feel the necessity to put them multi functional for a superb cause. The factor is that individually these are all nice merchandise, among the greatest I ever had, nonetheless, when all three are used collectively the magic occurs. I swear my hair hasn’t by no means felt this silky, mild and comfortable then once I use all three/4 merchandise collectively. I simply can’t cease touching my hair and the impact lasts for 3 days – usually, the highest layer of my hair and the ends get dry quick. You know the way on L’Oreal or Pantene commercials once they carry the hair, it falls down like a waterfall, nicely that is how my hair feels after utilizing these (it does not look as retouched clearly, it is nonetheless regular individuals hair that feels superb to the contact). They will need to have some very prime quality silicones too make it this manner. The entire Nutritive line is focused for dry to very dry hair (the outline of my hair sort is below about).

I examined every individually (with a mix of different merchandise from completely different manufacturers) and all collectively. These are all very costly merchandise and despite the fact that I coveted them for a 12 months, I wasn’t actually ready to half from my cash till a very implausible provide got here my means. I acquired the three merchandise 15% off and was given a full measurement Elixir Ultime, which retails about 35€. A phrase of recommendation, salons actually overcharge these, so go browsing on websites like HqHair, Lookfantastic, Feelunique and different comparable ones to seek out the most effective costs.


Kérastase Nutritive Bain Oléo-Chill out Smoothing Shampoo

It is meant for dry, frizzy hair that refuses to be tamed. Different reviewers describe it as the most effective shampoo for taming frizz – admittedly that was what offered me. Texture-wise it is a common, gel sort shampoo that has an orange hue, it is extra on a liquidy aspect, fairly than a thick gel. It foams pretty and lathers to a wealthy foam. My hair feels fairly silky, once I’m rinsing it off and I can simply comb although the knots with fingers. The comb mainly simply glides although the damp hair. It is an analogous impact to utilizing a light-weight conditioner, which is a consequence of the added silicones. It is completely not a kind of shampoos that depart your hair squeaky clear (a sense I genuinely dislike) and is likely one of the greatest shampoos for dry hair I attempted. It does not irritate my scalp which can also be a plus, nonetheless, I do really feel the silicones would possibly construct up on my hair, so an occasional use of clarifying shampoo or baking soda is required. So far as the anti-frizz properties go, I need to confess I did not see a lot of an impact, my hair was equally frizzy than when utilizing different shampoos, nonetheless, what I name frizz on my hair are literally particular person shorter hairs that get curly as a result of my hair is of course curly (the longer the hair the much less curly it’s in my case).

The scent is much like that of shampoos you get on the chemist’s, one thing like common cleaning soap (aldehydes), however barely extra sharp. I’ve a slight gripe with the bottle, as a result of the highest twists off, fairly than having the one which flips. It is extra time consuming and admittedly a bit annoying, contemplating I am paying loads for it.


In case your hair is both regular or oily, you may in all probability discover it too heavy due to the silicones. It is costly for a shampoo and I get although shampoos so quick, so it is actually extra of a luxurious to be shopping for it usually.  It was 18€ on Lookfantastic and the costs on most on-line retailers are about the identical.





Kérastase Nutritive Masquitense Épais – Thick




There are three completely different hair masks in Nutritive line and this one is focused for thick hair, which mine are.  The texture is sort of a medium thickness silicone-heavy cream that simply glides on the hair with such ease. On account of that you simply truly haven’t got to make use of a lot, which is a reduction as a result of the pot comprises a fairly stingy quantity of 200 ml. Curiously, there are not any directions as to how lengthy you need to depart it on, I do no less than 45 minutes. Once I’m rinsing it off my hair feels actually silky and it has numerous slip, it is a very comparable feeling to once I use Tigi’s Critical Conditioner, however right here it is much less intense. As soon as my hair is dry it feels very comfortable, manageable and moisturised, however the largest distinction is that amazingly my ends keep moisturised for 4 days. Normally they get dry both on the second day if I take advantage of an affordable drugstore conditioner, or on third day if I take advantage of a costlier one and I’ve to make use of an oil to situation it. It smells precisely like sunscreen, a scent that I really like. 

The packaging is a pleasant easy pot, nothing particular however practical. The value is a stunning 26€ for a 200ml – truthfully it might a least be 300ml. 

A bit recommendation: Watch out to not get any water in it, this is applicable to all merchandise truly, it will possibly have an effect on the effectiveness of the product. So no sticking your fingers into pots below the bathe or with moist arms.

Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique


This product excited me essentially the most with the outcomes. It is a warmth safety and leave-in conditioner in a single meant for dry hair. It is a light-weight cream, actually nothing too heavy, the truth is I discover it arduous to overdo on my hair, however others whose hair aren’t so dry would possibly discover it heavy if used an excessive amount of. It glides on the hair with ease and even earlier than blow drying you possibly can really feel how your hair feels extra silky. Throughout and after blow-drying my hair feels extremely silky and really comfortable, the one product that I can examine the sensation to is Tigi’s Critical Conditioner, however this goes to a good increased degree. My hair seems to be shiny, however not a lot much less frizzy, I tame frizz with a little bit of silicone oil like Elixir Ultime (or Macadamia, Orofluido,…) and Tigi’s Spoil Me. The sensation lasts for three-four days and my hair remained comfortable and silky, however my ends did get a bit knotty as typical.



I actually respect it for it is moisturising properties. If I had to decide on my favorite warmth safety, this one and the Tigi S Issue one are neck to neck, however I take advantage of them in two other ways, Tigi on dry hair as a result of it is extra oily and Kérastase on damp as a result of it is a cream (I take advantage of numerous warmth safety, I apply it each time I take advantage of a warmth instrument, so earlier than blow drying after which once more if I am going to use a curling iron). 

It is 19 € for 150 ml which is definitely a really good measurement, because it simply glides on the hair and also you needn’t use a lot. For instance TIGI Catwalk Smooth Mystique Blow Out Balm comprises solely 90ml for 15€ (nicely, I acquired it for 9€ on provide) and I’ve to make use of quite a bit pumps. In the event you actually need one thing from Kérastase, I’d undoubtedly go together with this primary.



Kérastase Elixir Ultime provides the ultimate touches to the hair and makes it look extra polished. In my authentic assessment I acknowledged it is too mild for my hair and it leaves my ends dry, nonetheless, on this case as a result of the opposite three merchandise depart my hair in such nice situation this works completely. As a result of it is so mild, it does not weight my hair down, it simply tames the frizz and provides a lot of shine. I truly maintain a journey measurement in my bag on a regular basis for frizz taming emergencies. I already raved about the scent, which is simply divine, a mixture of floral notes and coconut, virtually like a high-end seashore scent. And the pump is a big plus. I am undecided I would pay a full worth (I acquired it totally free), it relies on how lengthy the bottle will final or if I’ve an sudden windfall, however it’s actually addictive.




Usually my hair does look wholesome and amazingly shiny, my mom even commented on how tremendous shiny my hair seems to be and that it is even noticeable in a dimly lit room. How my hair seems to be relies upon extra on how I fashion it utilizing warmth instruments and the serum I take advantage of, however this provides one hell of a base. I’m completely loving how my hair feels. It actually hasn’t felt as silky and comfortable in like ever. It simply stays superior for days and I’ve already talked about how my hair is virtually by no means comfortable in my Macadamia Deep Restore masks assessment, so this can be a big deal for me. It does not get tremendous tangly, nor do I want to make use of Alverde hair oil to situation the ends and the shine is excellent. I do, nonetheless, use Elixir Ultime day by day to make it look extra polished and to tame the frizz (the latter remains to be a nuisance, however I can dwell with it. There isn’t a want for the whole lot wanting good).

(You too can see my hair whereas testing Kérastase in my final months posts: Essence Guerilla Gardening and Ardell Demi Lashes, each are second or third day hair)

I am a hair care junkie and I’ve tried my justifiable share of merchandise, so contemplating how costly Kérastase merchandise are, my expectation have been very excessive and I wasn’t dissatisfied. What I can say is that in case you have such problematic, dry hair like me and also you actually need it too really feel extra like regular hair, I can not advocate this sufficient, however to get the utmost impact they work greatest whenever you use all collectively, which does imply it is very, very costly. This does make your hair very silky, which implies that some individuals will want some form of a texturing product to fashion their hair. That is heavy-duty stuff, so in case your hair is in a comparatively good situation, you do not desperately want it and there are some cheaper choices that will not make your hair really feel as nice, however shut sufficient.  Some hyperlinks to my posts about hair: My Ideas for Coping with Dry Hair, My Present Hair Care – Half 1, My Present Hair Care – Half 2 and Hair Oils Collection. To date my expertise with Kérastase has been nothing however constructive and I am going to in all probability strive extra of their merchandise.

Congratulations to everybody who managed to get by means of this long-winded put up. Have a terrific day!
