But, as with many things French, the collections can be a little confusing to navigate. We’re here to dissect the Kérastase collections so you can find out exactly which products to use to achieve enviable locks.

An Introduction to Kérastase

Kérastase Paris was founded in 1964 as a professional haircare range offering continuous innovation to tackle specific haircare needs.

Designed by hairdressers and scientists, Kérastase products are packed with highly concentrated ingredients that work deep within hair fibres to create a resilient and healthy do. The brand also tailors its collections to the individual hair needs of every woman and man. This means you can either follow one full haircare routine or mix and match products for a unique system that addresses the needs of your own tresses.

Since its formation, Kérastase has been adored worldwide. The brand has developed many iconic products that are loved by hairstylists and celebrities. If you’ve ever wondered, ‘How Does Emily Ratajkowski Always Have Perfect Hair?’, Kérastase is your answer!


Is Kérastase Really Worth It?

Kérastase products might be slightly pricier than what you’re used to spending on haircare. But if you want a truly tailored approach and professional, high-performance products, then Kérastase is definitely worth the investment! These formulas contain only the best-quality ingredients in high concentrations to deliver dramatic and nourishing benefits to your locks. You’ll both feel and see the difference when making the switch to Kérastase. You’ll also ensure that your individual hair type and needs are being catered for with customised haircare products.

Does Kérastase Test on Animals?

The official Kérastase statement explains:

“We are happy to confirm that the L'Oréal group of companies, which includes Lancôme, Redken, Garnier, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Biotherm, Kérastase, and Vichy, as well as L'Oréal, has carried out no animal testing since 1989 on the entire range of its products. This decision was undertaken within the framework of our fundamental objectives: to offer innovative products of high quality while ensuring their safety in use by our customers.”

Does Kérastase Have Sulphates?

Kérastase currently offers two sulphate-free haircare collections: the Kérastase Aura Botanica range and the Kérastase Discipline range.

Is Kérastase Colour-Safe?

Kérastase products are full of nourishing ingredients that won’t strip your hair of nutrients, moisture, or colour. However, for colour-treated hair, we particularly recommend Blond Absolu for blonde hair and the Reflection Chromatique range for other hair colours. Both are known to help lock in colour, neutralise unwanted discolouration, and improve vividness and shine.

Is Kérastase Pregnancy-Safe?

There are no restrictions on Kérastase products for pregnant women, but the brand recommends consulting your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
