Getting Your Hair Balance Right

When you’re suffering from a sebum imbalance at your scalp and greasy roots that just don’t seem to budge, it can be tempting to over-wash your hair. But, if you’re looking to get rid of greasy roots, shampooing daily can strip your strands of moisture leaving them dry, brittle, sensitised and difficult to style, so you are left with more hair issues than you started with! Conversely, using rich products to nourish strands can clog the scalp leading to irritation or an overproduction of oil.

Today, people demand more from their haircare than ever before and Kérastase is delivering. The new Spécifique range has a dual-action balancing ability for urban-exposed hair prone to greasy roots and dry lengths.

A balancing range that delivers freshness and hydration

The trio of products, including two new formulations, has been created to reduce scalp oiliness and greasy roots, whilst caring for your ends so they are left hydrated and happy. A great shampoo for oily hair, Bain Divalent comes in a new look bottle. The ultra light formula balances scalp oiliness with ease and keeps hair fresher for longer so you don’t need to cleanse hair daily.

Alongside a gently cleansed hair and scalp, you can expect 61.5% more volume (something that greasy roots lack), 44% more softness in hair lengths and 20% better detangling after washing.
How to use: Simply apply to wet hair, massage and rinse thoroughly.

Containing Amino Acid and Kaolin Clay it balances sebum on the scalp, removes pollution and impurities like a magnet (so it won’t strip the hair), whilst increasing volume by 74% for a lovely root lift effect. Thanks to the addition of Menthol, the scalp is left invigorated and refreshed.
