Restore years of damage from long-term hair coloring or other demanding chemical processes, featuring breakthrough technology that gives damaged hair a second life. This regimen is perfect for anyone with over-processed, brittle, and severely damaged hair who wants to regain strength, renew and reconstruct their hair.
I have been using Kerastase hair care for the past 3 years and during that time I have tried different regimens – Chronologiste, Elixir ultime, Nutritive… and I loved almost everything I’ve tried but when I switched to Resistance line I realized that this is THE ONE for me. Since Kerastase is prescriptive hair brand I highly encourage you to take their hair diagnosis test here – http://www.kerastase-usa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-kerastase-us-Site/default/Yseop-Start . It can help you diagnose your current hair condition and recommend products that will transform your hair into ultimate beauty! After doing the test I was recommended the whole Resistance regimen which I have been using for the past two months. Even though I always took great care of my hair results that I got with Resistance therapiste line are more than I could have imagined. Moisturized, shiny, healthy looking hair that is easy to de-tangle. My hair is very long, thin, tangles like crazy and I have been highlighting it for the past 15 years. The only heating tool I use is the blow dryer (I avoid anything else to minimize the damage).
There are four products in the Therapiste line, including a shampoo, pre-shampoo conditioner, mask, and serum. Each one acting in a different way to mend hair and revive it’s inner beauty. But each utilizes a special concoction of ingredients featuring the miracle ingredient from the Myrothamnus Flabellifolia plant. This phenomenal plant is able to come back to life even after ten years of near death, and it’s this very spectacular trait that Kerastase has harnessed to restore damaged hair to new!
RÉSISTANCE BAIN THÉRAPISTE 43$
Extra creamy shampoo fiber renewal care for very damaged, over-processed fine, medium and thick hair. The 1st shampoo with a unique jellified texture that repairs the hair fiber while gently cleansing. Envelops the fiber during cleansing to reduce friction.
I was so surprised how gentle this shampoo is. It does thorough cleansing without stripping the hair and leaves it very moisturized. If shampoo is too drying for me I always end up with tangled and dry hair that is hard to manage. Bain Therapiste is the most moisturizing shampoo I have tried from Kerastase (compared to Chronologiste, Nutritive bain satin 1, Elixir ultime) and is designed to work in synergy with the Soin Premier Thérapiste, a conditioner that you apply before shampooing. It has very rich balmy texture and little bit goes a long way.
RÉSISTANCE SOIN PREMIER THÉRAPISTE 45$
Reverse Fiber Renewal Care Conditioner created to use before shampoo to protect & repair very damaged, over-processed hair without the weigh-down effect.
I have tried different pre-shampoo treatments before like Chronologiste the gommage – exfoliating sculp treatment and Elixir Ultime Metamorph Oil – purifying pre cleanser but this is the first time I tried “conditioner” before shampoo and I am really impressed how much it protects hair fiber from over drying. It also allows even more nutrients to be absorbed by the hair during the process. It keeps my hair moisturized without weighing it down which is very important if your hair is fine like mine. I have been highlighting my hair for 15 years and I need all the help I can get to keep it healthy and fight the damage so I do not mind this “extra step”. It is basically a “primer” to your cleansing routine – just think about how you use primer before makeup – does it make difference? It sure does. It is the same with Premier therapiste.
RÉSISTANCE MASQUE THÉRAPISTE 65$
Reparative Bandage Treatment Fiber Renwal care for thick hair. The thick, creamy reparative masque deeply nourishes and works at very core of the hair, for very damaged, over-processed thick hair.
Even though this mask is intended for thick hair I found that it works really well on my fine hair too. I use it after Soin premiere therapiste and Bain therapiste to get the best results. It has thick balmy texture and tiny amount goes a long way. It leaves hair not just moisturized and shine but gives nice bounce to it too. It is great to be used (if not constantly) when you are going trough multiple coloring treatments, highlighting, different chemical processes or during that time of the year when hair is being exposed to environmental aggressors like chlorine, sea salt, sun…
