Hair Care of the Gods

Ahhhh, another secret weapon. This product has truly been a weapon of mine for about six years. Kerastase shampoo. Yes, you’ve seen the brand in your salon, but you haven’t seen this particular line! It was my best kept secret for years because, well, you couldn’t buy it in America.

But, lucky for you, it has recently been FDA approved!

I’ve suffered from an over-active scalp for many years. Over-active scalp? What’s that, you say? Imagine a really dry scalp with all those sneaky little white specs along the hair-line, well that happens to people who have problems with greasy hair too. The grass isn’t always greener!

In high school, I was mortally embarrassed by my tiny flakes until my parents went to Spain and found this little gift for me. When I ran out, I waited a month for a package from South Africa to arrive and finally in college, while studying in Italy, I bought out a tiny beauty supply store by Santa Croce.

Kerastase Specifique – Bain Gommage is truly heaven-sent. I no longer have a flaky scalp (there’s a product for oily scalp as well as dry scalp, don’t worry!!). Give it a few washes to set in/start working and you will be amazed.

I’ve used every product under the sun to get rid of flakes…Neutrogena, Head & Shoulders, and that stuff that makes your hair smell like tar (not to mention it’s AWFUL for colored hair). Nothing works like Kerastase (and it won’t strip your salon do!).

The small bottle will run you about $26 at a beauty supply store ($52 for the salon size…which is what I use). Check with your salon to see if they carry the line yet or you can always find it online like me.

Hint: Look for the gray and white bottle in the store. The full name is (get ready for this): Kerastase Specifique, Bain Gommage, Systeme Pur Detox, Gentle Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, Dry Hair (or Oily Hair if that makes sense for you).

Tip to make the bottle last longer: Alternate this shampoo and another shampoo each time you wash.

  1. I never knew dandruff was the reason that you used this stuff! I never have needed a product like this until last year (I attribute it to stress… haha) and when I did need something, I couldn’t find anything that works! JUST BOUGHT THIS! yay

    • Ugh, stress. Mine manifests on my face…how wonderful! I’m so glad I could help with yours, though. And even better, that you never knew I needed a product to treat it! I guess that means it works 🙂

  2. I bought this and it’s great, Brit. It does all the jobs: kill the dandruff, softten the hair and the smell is lovely 🙂 Thanks
