Haircare | Kérastase Nutritive Range Review

kerastase nutritive range haircare review

A few months ago I got a haircare package of dreams from Kérastase with five products from their Nutritive range as well as one of their bestsellers, the Elixir Ultime Oil! This is one of the most hyped haircare brands there is and I have been trying them out for the last few months so if you have been wondering how any of the products perform, read on to hear my thoughts after a little ramble about my hair!!

My hair is long, fine and brown (not colour treated). I struggle with dry and split ends because I use heat tools and go longer than I should between haircuts and my roots tend to get oily quickly. In the past, I have generally stuck to SLS free shampoos due to what I think sometimes is scaremongering over SLS shampoos being harsh or causing irritation when in fact I have never experienced this myself. Shampoos containing SLS are also a good way to remove build up from your hair so I reintroduced these back into my haircare routine more regularly quite a while back though I still also regularly use SLS free shampoos as well and find a mix of the two is suiting my hair perfectly!


Frizz has been a more recent battle for me as my hair has never been so frizzy as in the last 1.5 years and it’s been lacking its usual shine. I’m not sure if this is due to hormones/ageing (I'm 31) or working from home (drier air) or a mixture of everything so finding the right routine for me is an ongoing process and while I am loyal to haircare brands such as OUAI and Olaplex, I love to switch it up too and have definitely found a few favourites in these Kérastase products! The styling products contain silicones which again are usually a love/hate thing for most people but I have found myself having to use them to keep the frizz and flyaways in check and they are some of the most lightweight, non-greasy formulas I have tried! 


kerastase nutritive haircare

To start with, the Kérastase Bain Satin 1 Shampoo for slightly dry hair RRP £21.55* – an SLS containing shampoo and the most lightly scented out of Nutritive range! This lathers well and makes my scalp and hair feel clean without drying it out (note I don’t have a particularly sensitive scalp). Despite being formulated for dry hair, this doesn’t weigh my hair down and it makes it feel soft and look shiny! I tend to wash my hair twice a week, once with this and once with an SLS free shampoo and this routine seems to be working well for my hair!


Next up, the Lait Vital Conditioner RRP £28.20* and this along with the mask smell absolutely incredible! I mean it when I say I am obsessed, scent in haircare is very important to me because it tends to last quite a while in my hair and I am picky with fragrance. I am not very good at explaining scents but it just smells luxurious and clean and a bit like you’ve been on holiday or to the hairdresser. This is a nourishing conditioner, again for dry hair, and I apply through my mid lengths and ends. It doesn’t feel overly thick but works well to smooth my hair and leave it feeling soft and swishy and the scent really does last! 


kerastase hair mask review

I am a sucker for a hair mask and the Masquintense Thick Hair Mask RRP £36.30* has been an absolute treat to use! It smells the same as the conditioner but maybe a little more concentrated, is thicker and richer and I like to leave it on 15-20 minutes before rinsing out. It leaves my hair feeling super soft, smooth and the ends well hydrated which makes them look so much healthier! Despite my hair not being thick, it rinses out well and doesn’t leave it weighed down. It’s a huge 200ml too and a tiny bit goes a long way so I know I am going to turn to this a lot in the winter to keep my hair in good condition! 


kerastase nutritive hair range review

After my wash/conditioning/masking is all done I have been using either the Nectar Thermique Heat Protector RRP £29.05* or the Elixir Ultime L’Huile Original RRP £40* as both offer heat protection. The Nectar Thermique is a light cream while the Elixir is a combination of 5 oils. I tend to steer away from hair oils as in the past I have found some formulations too heavy for my hair, so I used this with caution but was very pleasantly surprised! It adds beautiful shine to my hair with no grease in sight as well as smoothing frizz and flyaways! It also works well on dry hair but I tend to use on damp and the oil works better for me in terms or frizz control than the Nectar Thermique!  


kerastase haircare worth it

Lastly and by no means least, the boujiest hair treatment I have used - the Nutritive 8h Magic Nourishing Overnight Serum RRP £40*. This is a serum you apply to hair before bed and it works overnight to help condition and replenish dry hair. Continuing with the theme of Kérastase hair products, this smells divine and my hair also drinks it up. It looks shiny the next day as well as thicker and healthier at the ends and I can use this a few nights in a row without it weighing down my hair or making it greasier quicker! This is definitely a little “extra” but so good!

Overall, while the brand is on the pricier side of things, I have been super impressed by the effects on my hair. The sizes are generous too and a little goes a long way! I have been using these for months and have barely made a dent! My favourites would have to be the mask, oil and overnight serum and there are definitely a few other products from their other ranges I now have my eye on! Have you tried any Kérastase? What’s your favourite product?


Kérastase products are available from their website, Look Fantastic, Sephora, Just My Look and Notino!

  3. These products sound great and I'm glad they work well for you.

  4. I have had easy to care for hair most of my life, but now I am going through the menopause I am battling frizz. It is really upsetting when I have always had the most straight frizz free hair. I have been trying out new shampoos but I think I will need to try more expensive ones. Fabulous review Danielle xx

    1. Thank you Janet! Weirdly enough my frizz issues have been solved now I have come back to Canada, must be the drier air but I feel your pain, its hard when its not what you are used to xx

  5. Oh this really is the parcel of dreams! I've been using Kérastase products for over 20 years and have tried most of the ranges - all of them smell DIVINE! Not just that, but they work so well too! The Genesis range really helped when my hair was falling out when I first got Covid and I've used the Resistance range to strengthen my hair, for years! x


    1. I am definitely going to look into their other ranges, so impressed! xx

  6. I really love the sound of these products! The mask sounds delicious and the Overnight Serum has me very intrigued, need to try at least those two products soon!

    1. Definitely treat yourself! They are perfect for winter espeically as my hair gets so dry! xx

  7. Kerastase Nutritive is also my favorite line from this brand and I love this mask and Nutritive Night Serum. I also have Nectar Thermique which I use before drying hair and my hair love these products so much. After every use it is so shiny and silky. I didn't try conditioner, thank you for recommendation, I need to check it.

  8. How have I never tried this brand before?! I love a good scent in haircare products, so it's good to know that these smell incredible. I need the Lait Vital Conditioner in my life xx

  11. Totally love a great hair mask. I very recently got into using one. I have definitely been misssing out. :)

  12. I had a different Kerastase hair mask I got a trial of a few years ago and I loved it, sadly couldn't justify the expense to repurchase it, but I do think the products are brilliant for hair, just a bit expensive!

    Hope you are having a great weekend :) Quiet Sunday for us as it's cold and rainy today!

    Away From The Blue

    1. They definitely are pricey but I am happy wiht how long they are lasting me! Hope you have a great week Mica! xx

  13. Kérastase Nutritive has become my go-to haircare line for nourished and healthy-looking hair.
