In the mirror of my own experience
Kerastase Nutritive shampoo comes in white shiny bottle. The bottle has a orange and silver screw in lid. When you open the lid you find a very small opening that helps to control the amount of product you desire. I would have loved a pump technique but still I have no problem with this at all. Overall the packaging is good,sophisticated, the bottle is not too heavy and the lid is totally secure to travel with.
The shampoo is white coloured and has a mild and pleasant smell that I love.
I take an average amount of product for my medium length hair. A bit more is required for oiled hair. In the beginning, it lathers mildly but removes all the impurities perfectly. a very small amount of product is needed once the oil is gone and it lathers very well and washes off hair probably.
As you all know my hair is normal to dry in texture. I had it highlighted recently. Basically, it is soft silky and slightly wavy by nature. Monsoon always comes like a bad dream for my hair. I face hair fall, frizziness and dullness in my hair. I really hate monsoons for this reason. Anyways, usually I always use a conditioner on my hair after shampooing but these days I avoid it due to the hair fall.
Coming on to the effect, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to see its effect on my hair at first wash. I noticed that my hair felt soft, supple and shiny even without using conditioner. It leaves them light and bouncy. The shampoo has silicon in it however, it never gives a slippery feeling to my hair. With a conditioner, it looks even more healthy and soft. This effect stays for 4-5 days which is absolutely great.
I have used this shampoo just 4-5 times but I’m very happy and satisfied with the result. It reduced the frizziness and dullness visibly. I can’t comment on its effect on my hair fall yet but I’m hopeful about it. The only down part of this shampoo is that it contains silicon(chemicals) but no doubt it’s really effective.

I’m very happy with the initial result of this shampoo. My hair looks soft silky and bouncy. This is really effective for normal/dry,fine and sensitised hair. I’ll recommend it to all my readers who can afford the price and not very keen on SLS or silicon free shampoos.
