The Best Kept Secret for Long Hair! Kerastase Cristalliste Giveaway

One of my favorite things to do on this blog is to share with you all my favorite, most holy-grail- worthy hair, makeup and skincare products. 

That's why when Kerastase contacted me about trying out their new Cristalliste haircare line, it felt like a dream come true.  I'm a longtime fan of their products and have over the years used products from the pink, green and orange lines and have loved each and every one of them.

I've said this before, but I truly believe that Kerastase is one of the few haircare lines where they products consistently meet or exceed my expectations.  They do what they say they'll do and they are extremely targeted by hairtype for optimal results.

When Keratase told me their latest line was created especially for women with long hair, I was hopeful that they would be products that would help with my damaged lengths and ends, dryness, breakage, and so on.  Here's what Kerastase says about their new Cristalliste line:

Cristalliste contains a perfect proportion of care and cleansing agents to treat and embellish the hair, making it radiant from the roots to the ends. Cristalliste solves all the problems of long hair leaving hair purified at the root level while leaving ends moisturized, smoothed and polished:

· New generation of high foaming cleansers
· Hair is perfectly clean
· Roots are left pure and weightless
· Evenness of the hair fiber’s cuticle is restored
· Eco-friendly conditioning care agents
· Lengths and ends are smooth and polished
· A concentrated dose of amino-acids and vitamins
· Features Aloe Vera: a powerful natural moisturizer
· Enhances natural hair glow and shimmer

I have been using the line for more than a month now and I'm extremely happy with the products. Here's a breakdown of what I think about each product:

Cristalliste Shampoo- (Bain Cristal Fine or Bain Cristal Thick)
This shampoo is silicone, paraben and colorant free and safe for color-treated hair.  It is clear and smells really nice, which is always a bonus.  I feel that this shampoo cleanses well but doesn't strip the hair which is important for someone like me who struggles with dryness from coloring and styling.  I also love that even though it helps smooth the hair, it doesn't weigh it down whatsoever.   This shampoo really cleanses the roots and nourishes my ends, but I'm still going the same amount of time between washes as I was with any other shampoo I was using, which is wonderful.


Cristallliste Conditioner: (Lait Cristal Conditioner for Long Hair)
You know how your hair can get that "slip" feeling when you rinse out conditioner?  This one definitely delivers in that department. It is also silicone, paraben and colorant free as well as safe for color-treated hair.  I expected the formula to be richer or creamier for some reason, but it has a more mikly consistency.  This consistency, however, has not prevented it from delivering moisture to my ends and making my hair feel softer and smoother----it's supposed to leave your hair free-flowing and give it weightless shine and it really delivers.


Cristialliste Lumiere Liquide: (Luminous Perfecting Essence For Dry Lengths or Ends)
This is the standout product to me from the line. First off, it smells amazing. It kind of reminds me of waterlillies.  Very feminine and pretty. Even the bottle is pretty and it has landed itself a permanent space on my glass tray from West Elm because it's too pretty to hide in my drawer.  I apply two pumps of this to clean, wet, brushed-out hair.  I apply it from the nape of the neck, downward, focusing most on my ends.  This serum helps me achieve a soft, smooth blowout.  What surprises me most is that you cannot at all tell you've used a serum in your hair because it doesn't add any weight and there is no "residue" feeling that you sometimes feel with other products.  For some reason, you just don't get that "serum" feeling on your hair...but you get all the benefits of one, especially with how much smoother and easier hair is to style.




Kerastase Fibre Architecte:
This product was not sent to me, I purchased it from the Kerastase website, but I wanted to mention it because it is now a part of my blowout routine.  I use the Fibre Architecte on hair that is 80% dry.  I apply one or two pumps from the nape of my neck, down, again focusing on the ends of my hair.  Then I blow out my nearly-dry hair in sections with a roundbrush and set in velcro rollers.  This products helps to smooth and "seal" split ends and damage and also helps protect the cuticle of the hair from heat---it is a heat activated product so results are best when you apply heat to your hair immediately after using it.  I have also used this prior to curling my hair.



Kerastase Elixir Ultime:
This is not part of the Cristalliste line, but it's one of the products I have come to really appreciate because it has a multitude of uses.  I am using this once a week at night (on a night before I wash my hair the next morning) as a moisturizing oil treatment for my dry hair.  I can always feel a difference when I wash my hair after I've used it.  The smell is still something I'm getting used to as it's a bit stronger than the other products in the line, but it's not an unappealing scent either.  I also use this oil (just a teeny, tiny pump) on third or fourth day hair.  By this time, I've styled and re-styled my hair a few times with heat so my hair can start to look dry and lose it's shine from using dry shampoo and hairspray.  Applying just a tiny bit of this oil revives my hair a bit and restores shine and gloss to my hair so that it can last me another day before I need to wash it.  Less is more with this product, unless you are using it as a treatment.  I still plan to try it on wet hair before a blowout as I've heard that's a very popular application technique for this product. 

And now, the most awesome part of this post---Kerastase is generously giving away 10 full-sized bottles of the Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide ($42 value each) on my blog! So 10 of you lucky ladies will get to try out one of the incredible Cristalliste products.

  1. Great giveaway! I haven't tried this line and would LOVE to try.

    I blow-dry my hair a lot and maybe too much. So I make sure minimal blow-dryer time when possible. I wrap my hair in those micro-fibre turbin and get excess water absorbed as possible. Then spray the heat-tamer before blow-drying.

  3. I have been following your blog for a while, found you on the F&B board on TheNest...love your style!

    Like you, I go 2-3 days between washing, have long, color treated hair and have many of the same issues with damaged ends, etc. I have been using coconut oil from the nape down as a deep conditioner the night before I wash, and have seen a vast improvement in my hair texture. Soft, manageable...and very inexpensive!

  4. I have found that not washing my hair on a daily basis and washing it at night allowing it to air dry instead of using a blow dryer have really helped to keep my hair healthier and less brittle!

  7. I'd love to try this!

    I don't do much to my hair. I wash every 3-4 days, and never blow dry it. I use keratin infusion shampoo, and it keeps my hair light and silky, and doesn't fade my color!

  8. I have recently used Kerastase's Beautifying oil on my ends and after a few days with no wash and it's wonderful! It's just like you say, silky, but no residue! I'd love to get a full size, as this was something I recieved in my Birchbox.

  10. I have never tried Kerastase, but feel like I have tried everything else and have an arsenal of products to keep my long hair looking healthy. My haircare secret is a one-two punch: Rusk Deepshine Smooth Keratin treatment and Davines Oi/Oil. I run the oil through my hair from nape to tip before I blow dry. These products have been total game changers, keeping my normally frizzy hair straight and tangle-free after blowouts.

  11. The best hair secret is hair fertilizer, coconu oil, and monoi miracle oil from the body shop. I put a hot towel and leave it for half an hour. I also use the macadamia leave in cream after I shower. I have not used kerastase products and am excited for the giveaway. Thank yo solo much Veronica. My email is g_kardon@yahoo.com

    Like you, I only wash my hair a couple of times a week and I take care to never blow dry and use the curling iron on my hair in the same day. I have super long hair and it keeps my hair healthy, as well as saving me time everyday by not having to wash, dry, and style every single morning!

  18. Great reviews! I have long hair too and suffer from some similar issues. Looks like these are great products :)

  19. I have been reading your blog for almost a year now and found you through a fellow blog friend.

    I am currently growing out my hair for my upcoming November wedding. I have been washing my hair less often then I did before and have started using a conditioner. Also I use a heat-tamer like others have said. I put mine on when it is wet to blow-dry it and also when it is dry to straighten it. So far my hair has been reacting great but lately my hair has gotten a little worse for wear. I have been wanting to try this product line since you have talked about it. Thanks for your amazing giveaways!!

  32. Hey Veronika,

    Thanks for this opportunity. My hair is extremely long and curly and I love to style it everday. Your tips have been so helpful. The main thing I do to keep the quality is to shower at night and let it dry naturally. I also really love dry shampoos as I only wash it twice a week. I would really appreciate the assistance from Kerastase! Thank you!

  44. My best tips for healthy hair are:

    1.I try not to use heat if I am not doing something special, and when I do, I try not to spend much times on the ends.
    2.When you are getting the water out of your hair with towel, don't rub! Squeeze!! It keeps the cuticles smoother.
    3.Absolutely love argan oil conditioner (leave it in for your whole shower!) and phyto universal elixir (for the scalp, but it's great for your hair as well)!

    This is a great giveaway and I would love to try this for my long,curly hair.

  45. I really hope I win!

    I was always told growing up that in order to have voluminous hair that I had to blow dry it upside down. Up until recently, that's exactly what I did. But after getting my hair cut at a new salon, the stylist told me that's one of the worst things you can do. I had no idea! Using a nozzle on my hair and blow drying it with a round brush is one of the best things that I could have done.

    I know that if I am able to win this awesome Keratase product that I will have even more beautiful hair after drying it!

  49. Thanks for the giveaway!


    The best way to keep nice moisturized and shiny is to use a coconut oil hair mask once in a while. (Depending on if you have dry or oil hair) - If you have oily hair, it's not going to make your hair more oily because it is a natural product. But its nice to just moisturize your hair and give it a little shine.
    I have semi-dry hair, I love using coconut oil in my hair. I can tell a difference in how soft and moisturized it is. Especially in the winter. & it's all natural :)

  50. I just want to start off by saying what an amazing give away! I love the way you style your hair, and it's inspired me to take more time and effort with my own. I think the best hair secret for me is doing a hair mask using coconut oil, my mom used to do this for me when I was younger and it makes me hair look and feel absolutely amazing!

    Good luck to everyone :)

  61. I also have long hair so at night I put my hair in a high loose bun on top of my head with a scrunchi, yes rocking the '80s at night, to keep it from getting tangled at night and so I don't have to battle with brushing it out in the morning. I use the scrunchi because it doesn't tug on my hair or leave a crease in my hair. That's my "secret" and I also think it helps the oil from my hair from getting on my face at night as well.

    Thanks for this opportunity to win a great product!

  68. Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil! It smells divine and makes my hair SO soft!! Also, because I'm a teacher I hardly ever blow dry my hair during the summer since I'm not working - it gives my hair a break from heat :)

  69. Since I've been growing out my hair I've noticed how damaging all the heat styling I do is, and this new line sounds like an answer to my hair issues.

    It might see obvious, but my best hair tip is to use a good quality heat protectant. My blowouts last much longer and my hair looks healthier when I use my Aveda Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother and their Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair.

  79. Wow, what a great giveaway Veronika!

    I try to let my hair air dry. Since I've stopped using the hair dryer as much, I have noticed a lot less split ends. Crossing my fingers, I would love to try Kerastase!!!

  80. Hi Veronika!
    I love your blog and appreciate all of the style, beauty, and life tips I read on here (and watch!) :)
    I have long, naturally curly, dark hair that I get colored regularly. With that said, it is important that my hair is well conditioned and not over-styled. (I straighten and curl with an iron regularly!) I do my best to go at least every other day for washings, and I use the Suave Dry Shampoo that you recommended in between washes and LOVE it! I am always trying new ways to repair my damaged ends, and to keep my hair looking healthy!
    I would love to try the Kerastase product line, and I believe that the Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide would be a good place to start! It sounds amazing!
    I appreciate your blog and advice, keep up the great work!

  81. Best kept secret... Apply olive oil to hair chin length and below, put in ponytail cover with disposable shower cap or plastic bag and sleep in it overnight. Then when you wash & condition your hair in the morning it looks more shiny and healthy.
    Also, (i am sure a lot of people do this.) I shampoo hair above the chin and scalp & only condition below the ear.

I have long and SUPER thick hair and just tons of it so once a week I put coconut oil in it about an hour or two before a shower and let it soak in so that my hair is shiny and more manageable and also I only condition the bottom 3/4 of my hair to prevent premature oily roots. I need more help though so I would LOVE to win this!!!

  94. Dear Veronika,

    I came across your blog a week ago and i´m literally sucked in by your posts and been browsing your archive posts since then.

    I been knowing the Kerastase products for a while. Here in Germany where I live you can buy them mostly at hairdressers. It´s great to get to know new products like the Cristialliste Lumiere Liquide. Haven´t seen that at my hairdressers yet. So winning would be absolutely cool even if I´m not sure if you would actually ship to Germany ;o).

    My secret for beautiful hair is simply to do a hair mask every sunday while lying in my bathtub and to blow dry with my hairstruktur so you don´t get that fluffy puffed appearance on your hairtexture. So just don´t go like criss cross with your blow dryer and you get a much sleeker look. Small secret but quite effective in my eyes.

    Have a nice sunday!

  95. Great giveaway! I'm interested in purchasing these products even if I don't win because I've been trying to grow out my hair w/o having to encounter split ends, tangles, and those tiny knots on individual hair strands. Those are the most annoying as I'd have to cut them off, and they don't always knot at the very ends of my hair strands.

    I have naturally straight hair that is on the thick side, so I think my best hair tip I have is to rarely use hot tools to dry or style my hair, brush my wet hair with a comb or hair brush but don't pull because it'll likely cause my hair strands to snap back and get knotted, and to also get frequent trims (I was so bad at this. I would go 6 months before I got a proper haircut! Yikes!)

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  100. First off -- couldn't be more excited about trying this line (whether I'm lucky enough to win or have to purchase on my own!)

    Best hair secret -- not washing every day, letting my hair dry naturally once a week (the blowdryer just dries it out like crazy!) and using Redken's GUTS on my roots and an organic argan oil serum from the nape down before every blow dry. i also recently discovered One 'N Only Argan Oil Restorative Mask and i use it once a week. the amazing thing is that my hair is softer the second day after using-- love it!

  108. This is awesome. Thanks for the opportunity. My secret for healthy hair is trimming your ends regularly. I think people tend to focus on growth and sometimes neglect damaged ends because they do not want to lose the length. I've made it a point to monitor my ends on a monthly basis and moisturize and/or trim them as needed. Healthy ends have helped keep the rest of my hair in tip top shape. If I win, I may be reached at getready2shop@yahoo.com.

    Thanks again.

I try to use the tools fast to limit the heat damage. That's pretty much it! Simple :) I'd love to try the Kerastase, they have great reviews and have always been curious. Have a great day! -Ali

Then I rinse it out last thing before I get out .

  141. Hey Veronika! Just found your YouTube channel and I love it! :) We're living in Norway for 2 years so I have very limited access to US products (we are WAY north in a very small town...but I do have a US /APO mailing address for the contest purposes. ) and your reviews are so helpful for my online shopping! Anyway, I also have long brown hair with the last of hideous highlights almost grown out. I also use coconut oil, but my technique is a little 'involved'. About once/month on 'wash days' after my workout at the gym I will quickly wet my hair in the shower and work the coconut oil in from the ends to the roots (ends are dry so they get prioritized), then loosely twist my hair on top of my head and sit in the steam room for 20-30 minutes ( you can do this at home by microwaving a moist towel and wrapping around your head). Then back to the shower to wash it out with Pureology Antifade complex and conditioner. Rinsing it with the coldest water you can stand is key - locks in the shine. *sidenote, I also rub the coconut oil all over my skin and wash it off with a body scrub - glow for the day! My hair feels so soft and luxurious! You can find coconut oil at any grocery store with the cooking oils. You could even use olive oil but the coconut oil just smells SO good. natalieinnorway2012@gmail.com

    Besides only washing my hair 2-3 times a week, my big tip is what I like to call "no heat weekends" On Saturdays and Sundays I don't apply any heat to my hair. No blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron. I will use a little curl cream to revive my curled hair if I have plans. I like to give my hair a little break from all the styling I do during the week.

The next morning I take the towel out and rinse it out of my hair and it looks healthy, shiny, soft and bouncy! Best feeling ever!

  151. I have been meaning to try a product from the Kerastase line because of all the great feedback I've heard about it.

  160. My hair is very curly, so I blow dry it and then straight it with the iron. My secret to keep it healthy is wash it every 2-3 days, use a mask every time I wash it but just at the ends, use a straighter in the roots before blow dry it (B & B), and a heat protectant in the ends. I also use a clarifying shampoo from time to time.

  167. I have very long hair and a few secrets so I'll share them all! First, only shampoo your scalp - whatever shampoo that runs over the lengths of your hair is enough to clean without drying. Second, only condition from the hair by your ears down - this will prevent oily roots and also ensure volume at the roots because the conditioner won't weigh it down. Third, gently squeeze out excess water from your hair before applying conditioner - my hairstylist told me that this will prevent a ton of water from diluting the conditioner. Fourth, try to wash your hair once every other day to prevent excess stripping of natural oils. Fifth, take a biotin supplement to promote healthy growth of hair and nails. Sixth, eat a lot of foods with omega-3 fatty acids such as nuts and fish for shiny and healthy hair!

    My hair is below my belly button and still very healthy so I hope someone takes some tips from my comment! My email is lovamyblog@gmail.com - thanks Veronika :).

  169. Amazing giveaway! I have recently started using Moroccan Oil on my hair and have noticed a huge difference! My hair was so dry moving from Houston to Colorado but it really made all the difference! Plus it smells amazing. I also try to wear my hair curly ( I have naturally curly hair) at least once a week to minimize the heat damage from styling. I would love to try this Kerastase product!

  171. Haha my best kept secret is Kerastase. I love the Kerastase Elixir Ultime before a blowout. That and trimming regularly to keep the split ends at bay.

  172. HI Veronika sorry I don't know if my first one went through, if so please delete one!!

    I think one of the best ways to keep hair healthy is to not wash and dry every day... I try to do it every 3 days!

  173. My hair has become terribly damaged during the past month, and I would love to try these products. Though it's not much of a secret, I have found that using dry shampoo or baby powder between washes keeps my hair in better shape.

  174. Such a great giveaway!

    My best kept secret for healthy hair is to rinse you hair after washing with cold water. It closes the hair cuticles and gives a lovely shine!

    Love your blog!

  175. Yay! What an awesome giveaway. My hair is getting long and I'd say my best secret is washing and deep conditioning only twice a week. The texture of my hair completely changed when I stopped washing and drying it so much.

  176. Great giveaway! My secret for long hair is dry shampoo right before bed. It avoids that that bang stuck on the forehead look! I have wanted to try these Kerastase products you've shown on your blog to have no idea where to find them, so I'd love to try this. Thanks! Carrie

  178. What a great giveaway!!!! I wish i could cut down on how often I wash my hair but I just havent been able to di it. Instead, to keep my hair healthy, I try limiting how much i brush and blow dry my hair. I also get regular trims and i'm very careful with the products I use. (which is why the kerastase productswould be great!!!). Thanks for doing this!

  179. I would love the chance to try these also!

    I am a new blogger - since January - and I have followed you since the beginning. The main question I keep getting on my blog is about how I fix my hair so just last night I posted a VLOG on how I curl my hair.

    What I didn't include was that, I, like a lot of these chickies try to wash my hair only 3 times a week - it dries straight think goodness and the in between day I curl and us dry shampoo! I'd be so honored if you came over to my blog and view my video!

    My best kept secret is to definitely not wash everyday! If I do my hair gets way too oily.

  182. My best kept secret for healthy hair is not washing it every day. That said, I'd love something to use to give my ends more shine and moisture!

  183. Hi Veronika,

    I always condition my long hair first and shampoo it second. That way I get the moisturizing and tangle removal from the conditioner without it getting weighed down. Also I feel like it looks more clean if I shampoo last.

  184. Great giveaway! I use the Karastase orange line and my hair has never felt better! I also have limited using my straightening iron to every other time I wash which has helped a lot. Melissaciccarelli505@hotmail.com

  186. Best hair tip is only wash every 2-3 days along with letting hair air dry.. Even with all of this my hair is far from perfect and would love to try the keratase! Thanks so much for the opportunity:)

  187. Awesome giveaway!!!! I blow dry my hair as little as possible (since I work at home, I can shower midday and air dry). It's so much healthier from that.

  188. I heat style my hair daily so to keep it looking healthy I let it air dry after every wash. I also wash once a week with cleansing shampoo and try to do a deep conditin treatment weekly as well.

    Thanks!!!

  190. I always make sure to put a smoothing product in my hair before straightening it so it doesn't get too dry! I also use hair masks once a week and comb my hair with a thick toothed comb in the shower so it doesn't tangle.

  191. my best kept hair secret is taking hair vitamins and using a deep conditioning mask 2x a week. I'm trying to grow my hair back out (I cut it last Feb. and have been trying to grow it back out ever since) OH and I don't get it thinned. I'm VERY proud of how thick my hair is.

  192. Hi Veronika,

    I love kerastase, right now one of my favorites is the Chroma Thermique, it does a great job of protecting my hair and keeping it shiny. I would love to try this new product as well.

  193. Wow I would love to win this. My hair is really long, so I try to avoid heat as much as possible. My number one hair tip for saving time is to wash your hair at night, blow dry in the morning. My hair is probably 70% dry by that time so I am not drying it for as long as I would had I just gotten out of the shower.

  194. Thanks- I too love Kerastase products! I have long asian hair, and the best tip was what mommy told me- use coconut oil as a mask. Hair smells lovely after shampooing and its the best conditioner!

  195. Hi Veronika! I am dying to try the lumiere :) One of my fave hair secrets is to apply conditioner to my hair before going out in the sun. Kind of gives me a warm "solar" conditioning.

    Thanks!

  196. My best tip s to trim hair every 6 weeks. Keeps the ends from looking bad. Email is agouldmarketing@yahoo.com

  197. My best kept secret isn't anything ground breaking: avoid too much heat! I hardly ever blow dry my hair or use my hair straightener. I'm lucky to have straight hair and it curls slightly if I braid it so those are my two go-to hairstyles. The lack of damaging heat let's my hair go longer between trims and thus grow out faster.

  198. These products sound amazing!
    I think what has helped my hair stay healthy for longer is less washings! (I do dry shampoo on the in-between days). Also, purchasing salon quality, sulfate-free shampoo!

  199. Oh my....great giveaway!!! I love Kerastase products! For me, using a leave in conditioner is the best thing I can do for my hair since it is dry like yours. I find my hair the silkiest when I use them! I still can't seem to get rid of the static and what not, so crossing my fingers I win this giveaway because I know how good Kerastase products are! (Just a little outside of what my bank account will allow on a regular basis!)
