Kérastase Cristalliste – For Long Hair



“Flowing, smooth and airy, the hair flirts with light, refracting to perfection. Vibrant and radiant, it gives off a fresh, deep, intense glow.”

Sounds too good to be true… but it truly works. As you know, I am having very long hair and I try to take good care of it. The biggest problem that is specific to long hair is the imbalance between the roots and the sensitised, mostly dry lengths. The products that are great for the ends, are in general to heavy for the roots and leave the hair flat with no volume.

Kérastase unveiled the secret to long, shiny hair:


The key to beautiful long hair sublime from the roots to the ends is the F-layer. Located between the sebum layer and the top layer of the hair cuticle, it makes up the hair’s lipid film. Preserving its integrity not only keeps the hair fibre supple, but maintains its vitality and ability to reflect light.


Three key benefits that work in perfect synergy to solve all the problems of long hair.

Kérastase has combined a brand-new type of cleansing agent with a selective polymer and extract of Aloe Vera, well known for its moisturising power in skin products.

– Smoothing the fibre: Intelligently, the range’s products target only the parts of the hair that are sensitised. The ends are repaired, the fibre is coated and the lipid layer is protected.
The result: The lengths are smoothed, and radiate captivating light.

– Treating the roots: by dissolving impurities, the range’s shampoos perfectly cleanse the scalp while leaving it unharmed.

– Creating the fibre: The quality of the fibre’s lipids is improved, ensuring an airy texture, sensual movement and a radiant glow – the embodiment of youth.

Four products to make long hair a real tool for seduction that are available now:


BAIN CRISTALLISTE – Luminous Perfecting Shampoo

Two shampoos (available for thick or fine hair) with a proportion of care agents tailored to the hair’s diameter, to cleanse the fibre while respecting the lipid layer.

CHF 26.- (250ml)


LAIT CRISTAL – Luminous Perfecting Conditioner

A conditioner enriched with Liquid Light Complex that smooths and purifies the hair, making it fluid.

CHF 34.- (200ml)


LUMIÈRE LIQUIDE – Luminous Perfecting Essence

A serum that makes the fibre glossy, and lengths and ends more radiant.

CHF 39.- (50ml)

I love that my hair has with Kérastase Cristalliste a light, airy feel, and that it reflects the light wonderfully.

LoL, Sandra

I have always been a huge fan of Kérastase products. Especially the Résistance Bain de Force (250ml / CHF 29) shampoo and the Résistance Forcintense (6x15ml / CHF 51) which is a rescue program for weakened hair that I like to do twice a year, are among my favourites.

In the end of September four new products will be available, providing severly damaged hair with more strength, flexibility and shine. I have tried them already and they leave the hair shiny and easy to style.

Just imagine what your hair has to go through over time, blow dries, chemical processes and much more. No wonder, these factors can contribute to hair breakaging, split ends and dull hair. And even if your hair looks pretty good, it will appreciate a little extra treatment.
