Beauty Buzz: Crystal Light

hair flipLike many girls, I’m pretty obsessed with my hair.  I would even rank it as one of my best features (and I have so many).  So, I spend a lot of time (and sometimes money) trying to take great care of my beloved hair.  Whether it be taking mass quantities of vitamins or test driving the latest deep conditioners, I’m always on the lookout for the split end savior.

When the king of haircare, Kerastase, was kind enough to send me the latest and greatest from their line, I couldn’t wait to hop in the shower and lather up.  Cristalliste is specifically formulated for ladies with long locks (like me) and the goal is to nourish hair while leaving it light and airy.  I swear, this stuff was created for me.  It addresses all of my follicle fears (and the packaging is PINK!).

kerastase crystallisteI’ve since used the products twice (I like to go on a couple of dates before making any judgements) and I have to say, I’m a convert.  Hair feels silky, but light as a feather.  Long hair tends to get heavy, but Crystalliste leaves hair super shiny and soft without being the slightest bit weighed down by heavy conditioners (silicone, paraben, and colorant free!).  Oh and did I mention it smells like heaven?

Because Cristalliste cleanses your roots and nourishes your lengths and ends, it is perfect for us ladies who are doing the ombre hair thing (whether intentional or not).  While getting my hair trimmed a month or so ago, my stylist said to me, “You need to put back in what you take out of your hair by styling and coloring.  Your standard drugstore suds just won’t do.”  Well, thank goodness for Kerastase.  Keep your eyes peeled this month when Cristalliste will be available at a salon near you.

    Haha!! Noooo…. unintentional ombre is the new black (roots). JK! But you will love this stuff. Smells so good and my hair is so soft and shiny (even after a blow out/flatiron). xx

    I am so interested in this line. Is the serum heavy? what kind of ingredients does it have if it doesn’t have silicone? Also can you compare it to any other Kerastase you have tried, especially the green or orange lines? Thanks in advance and best wishes

    Would you recommend it to someone with an irritated, itchy or sensitive scalp? Normally I use Kerastase Dermo Calm shampoo… but this Cristalliste line is very appealing… :) Thank you!

    Hi Marie!

    I absolutely love this product. It works really well on my long hair and it smells divine! I don’t have a particularly sensitive scalp, but I am not sure whether it would be as soothing and moisturizing as what you’re used to because it is targeted for long hair and hydrates the ends without adding weight to the roots. If you could score a sample, I’d definitely give it a try though! Hope this helps! xx

    Hi Sandra,

    So sorry to just be getting back to you now. The serum is amazing. I have used the orange line, but not the green in the past. i have found that even if I go a little crazy with the serum, it does not leave my hair even a little bit greasy (as I found that too much of the Oleo Relax Serum would do). I would definitely suggest trying it out if you have longer hair with dry ends.

    Thank you so much for your answer. I’ll try to get a sample…
    Could I ask you one more thing?
    I’m also a big fan of hair masques. I tried Kerastase oleo-relax, oleo-relax slim, age-recharge, soleil and masquintense…

    I only really liked the original/first oleo-relax masque. Prevents dry ends and maintains a superb shining and healthy hair without weighting it down. (I have very fine hair)

    Do you think Cristallist lait cristal can replace a masque?
    Again, thank you so much for your advice.

    Hey Marie!

    No, problem!! Here to help :)

    I would not consider the Cristalliste conditioner to be thick/heavy enough to replace a masque. It’s great for a daily conditioner, but would definitely still recommend sticking with a weekly deep conditioning masque!
