Kerastase Discipline is the range from Kerastase focused on smoothing and defrizzing hair, making it more manageable and healthier. There is a normal hair line, as well as a line for those with curly hair. I received the normal hair line to try out, and after using this for a few weeks, I really love how my hair looks!
I generally rotate through my shampoo and conditioners, so I’ve been switching in between the Discipline Bain Fluidealiste (C$45) and the Shu Uemura Art of Hair Cleansing Oil shampoo. I always use the same conditioner, which is the Kerastase Fondant Fluidealiste (C$50). When I use the Bain Fluidealiste, I notice that my hair is significantly smoother, more manageable, and it passes my ultimate hair test – the ability for my hair to do that shampoo commercial *swish*. And it does! Bain Fluidealiste suds up easy, really cleanses my hair and roots (I only wash my hair once every 4-5 days if I can help it), and rinses out completely, leaving my hair feeling clean but never stripped or squeaky. Fondant Fluidealiste is a thick conditioner when coming out of the tube, but is very lightweight once spread onto hair. The directions say to use this on towel-dried hair, but I’ve been using it on just normal shower hair after squeezing out excess water, and it still does the trick.
I’ve mostly been using the shampo and conditioner, but on odd days I will also add in the Maskeratine (C$68), which contains a stronger dose of the softening ingredients that are in the Fondant. While I like the Maskeratine and the thicker, mask-like texture, I find that the Fondant is enough to keep my hair super soft and silky. If you have very frizzy or dry hair, then you might need to amp up the softening power with Maskeratine, otherwise you’re safe to stay with just the Fondant.
Lastly, I’ve been using the Spray Fluidissime (C$57) almost every time I blow dry. It’s great a reducing frizz, especially in this weather. It also helps to protect against heat damage, and improves dry time. I like this, but again my hair isn’t always super frizzy. It helps when it is frizzy, but otherwise I have pretty good luck with just the Bain and Fondant only. This is same for the the Keratine Thermique (C$49) as well, although I use this when I am planning on heat styling my hair with a straightener or curling iron. It helps to keep my heat-styled hair looking sleek.
One thing to note is that the products in this line are very heavily scented with a powdery floral scent that lingers long after you’ve washed your hair, and especially if you’ve used any of the styling products as well. I’m actually quite fond of the smell, but if you’re not then you’d be in for a bad surprise.
At the end of the day, I’m super happy with the way my hair looks, feels, and smells. I might be kinda weird but I do swish my hair around for my own self amusement, and this product makes my hair look pretty swishy. If you do have frizzy or unruly hair, I do recommend picking up the shampoo and conditioner from this line. All the other products are nice-to-haves but not necessarily must haves.
