[Product Review] Kerastase for hair loss problem
Hi readers, I wanna share another product review, this time is about hair treatment. Is there any of you ever heard Kerastase or maybe have experiences in Kerastase ritual? For those who’s never, Kerastase is a hair treatment product from L’oreal which has specification for several special need of hair problems. Usually, this brand is not for common sale, you can’t find ’em in any supermarket. The distribution of this product is exclusively managed by Kerastase ambassadors, some Salons which provide Kerastase treatment. In this kind of Salon, your hair will be observed by a hair scanner, then they will give you suggestion about what kind of treatment you need.
I heard about this product from femaledaily forum, which I got by “googling” about solution of hair loss. Yes, I have a problem with hair loss, never know the real reason, can be lack of hair nutrition or stress or anything. In this forum, they talked about their experienced of using Kerastase products. And yes, they kinda persuade me to try on :D.
How far my problem is? Actually, I have this problem since I was in fourth year of university, but I didn’t think too much about it. But then lately I found my hair is lost quite much, every time I tie my hair, I felt that several years later my hair was thicker! Oh no, then I was afraid of being bald maybe when I’m 30 or something. 😐
In FD forum, I understood that if we want to try Kerastase product, we better consult first in Kerastase salon, so we can get the right treatment. Well, also from some review in the forum, I came to Irwan Team Salon in Senayan City (since this is my favorite mall :P). First time I came, and my hair was scanned, I could see that I’ve lost a lot :(. The therapist suggested me to have a relaxation treatment first before I start hair loss treatment, and I said okay. In this therapy, I used Oleo Relax serum. First impression? Great! The massage was very nice, start from head, shoulders, back, and feet. They even use hot stones! I was offered to choose various herbal tea and got biscuits. How about hair? Of course it’s very well done, clean, soft, and nice fragrance.
After treatment and analysis, they suggested me to use Kerastase Bain Prevention GL and Aminexil serum regularly (every day) until 6 weeks. But, I didn’t think so! Hello, Aminexil 42 vials is soooo expensive, about IDR 2.6 million. Hell NO! 😀 So I decided to buy the shampoo first, yeah I was also out of shampoo at that time. Then I combine Bain Prevention GL with NR hair tonic.
From left to right : Aminexil, Bain Prevention GL, Stimuliste
A month has passed, my hair loss is not significantly reduced, but it’s little bit better. Then I decided to back to Irwan Team, this time I just asked to be analyzed, I didn’t have a ritual (I wanted to watch a movie :P). From the scan result, I can see some hair is growing, not much. On my second transaction, I swept my credit card for Kerastase Stimuliste and Aminexil (10 vials). Yeah, finally I was tempted by “Ami”, so I try on that 10 vials first. 😀
Actually, 1 vial of Aminexil should be use for 1 time, but this is a cost-down treatment, so I use 1 vial for 2 times (2 days). I just finished my last vial, and you know even for a stingy person like me, I can see a very nice improvement. My hair loss is reduced about 50-70% in 20 days. Beside that, they new comer hair now are visible and much more than before!
For the next treatment, I’ll keep using the Bain Prevention shampoo and combine with daily tonic Stimuliste. Actually, Stimuliste has two same active ingredient like Aminexil serum in a same portion. The Aminexil and Gluco-Lipid. But in Stimuliste they add another ingredient, but the serum is pure Aminexil and Gluco-Lipid. I wonder why the serum is much much more expensive than Stimuliste?
Well, I think this is enough for now, later I’ve tried Stimuliste for several weeks, I’ll give you the update. So who’s wanna go to salon with me? 🙂
