One of my favorite haircare brands, the super luxurious Kérastase Paris, is turning 50 this year. To celebrate, they’re offering a 19.64% discount at Kerastase-USA.com to commemorate the year they were founded (1964, obvs). It starts today at 6 am EST and ends this Friday the 20th at 3 am EST. Use the promo code K1964 (and you’ll get free shipping, too!).
I’ve been using Kérastase products for years, ever since I first discovered them while working at Lucky magazine. I’m a bit vain about my hair (I admit it!) and so I’m willing to spend fairly obscene amounts of money on shampoos, intensive conditioners, and styling products, as long as they produce results. Kérastase products aren’t cheap–shampoos are about $40, intensive conditioners are usually $62.50, and styling products are around $42–but damn if they don’t make your hair look phenomenal. Sure, it’s a bit of a splurge (and I almost always buy these products with my own money!), but the proof is in the glossy, shiny pudding. To me, Kérastase remains the gold standard in haircare.
The trick is finding the line that works for your particular hair type. Since I’m always putting my hair through its paces and it’s frequently crying out for moisture and TLC, I gravitate toward the highly conditioning Nutritive line, as well as the frizz-banishing Oleo-Relax line. If you know Kérastase, you no doubt already have your own favorites, but if you’re new to the brand, here are a few all-stars to check out:
Kérastase Spray Volumifique: a prep spray for huge, Barbarella-style hair.
Kérastase Densimorphose: a brand-new lightweight mousse that helps thicken hair and gives you texture to create almost any style.
Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense: an intensive conditioning treatment for super dry hair that needs a TON of moisture.
Kérastase Nutritive Bain Satin: a shampoo that rehabilitates worn-out hair.
Kérastase Serum Oleo-Relax: I love all of the products in this line, which is probably my favorite Kerastase range, but the Oleo-Relax Anti-Frizz Serum is particularly excellent for helping to keep hair sleek and smooth, even in humidity.
