They are not conditioners, they're masques.

isn't a masque basically an intense deep conditioner?

my stylist gave me a kerastase treatment and called that a conditioner.

OK, so can someone recommend a masque for me?

the said stylist isn't really "my" stylist, just a stylist i used while on holiday, so i only see her twice a year for a blowout.

Perhaps the Nutritive Masque Oléo-Curl Intense.

Well yes, and that's why they're called anything but conditioners. I don't think I'm too fond of Kerastase masques, really...

well, i apologize for using the wrong term even though it's clear you understood what i was asking.

marchessa - thanks for the suggestion. the stylist thought it would be good for my hair, but we didn't really get into which one and i knew there were a few to choose from, but there are even more than i thought! at $50, i'd like to make a somewhat educated decision.

^I can't believe how expensive Kerastase is in the US I must say that they are heavily scented...

Why don't you have the stylist use it on your hair? Then you can see if you like it

i only use that stylist when i'm visiting our home in canada. the salon i regularly visit in the u.s. doesn't stock kerastase (they use bumble & bumble, which is OK, but doesn't do anything fabulous to my hair) and if i go into a salon that stocks i'm sure they'll just try to sell me the entire line.

i know the stylist that used it on me did use all kerastase products on me, but i really only see her a couple of times of year for a blowout, so i'm not sure she'd remember.

I see your trouble. I hate that hair stylists always try to sell shampoo and stuff you don't need But I think it's worth a shot, because it is a lot of money. You just have to be very specific so they don't screw you over.

have you checked out the Kerastase ratings on makeupalley.com? if it's coming down to which masque/conditioner (some people do use them as conditioners) to buy, there are detailed reviews on there to help you decide. I would look at the Masque Oleo-Relax if you have thick hair.

^Well...you can't always trust makeupalley. A lot of people have no idea what they're buying or how to use it, so I'd read the individual reviews rather than decide from the ratings.

I agree. you should pay attention to exactly how people describe their own hair, how they used the product and the reasons why they were or were not satisfied, because sometimes it's obvious that there were misplaced expectations or incorrect technique involved. most people include this in their reviews. that website has saved me so much time, tears and $$$

are people using clarifying shampoos with this stuff? I've been shampooing every other day and I want to do the masqueintense again, but I'm wondering if this wouldn't be a good time to use a clarifying shampoo as well. I think my hair might be getting slightly flat? it could be my imagination. I don't want to strip my hair after making so much effort not to over-shampoo.

i agree with you guys when talking about the ratings on MUA. a lot of people don't know what they're doing, or haven't tried many products, etc.

i'm kind of thinking the oleo-relax creme, but that seems rather pricey to use every day. i might get it and see how long it lasts me, but i wanted to do something that would improve my hair overall...which i've never gotten from a styling product. i think trying a masque is my safest bet and then buying the shampoo/conditioner if i like what the masque did. i don't always wear my hair curly though...but i doubt that makes a difference when choosing a masque.

i want stronger hair basically. my hair is quite healthy, and very long, but i feel it isn't as strong as it used to be...
