Hi everyone!!!

For these past few weeks I’ve been using Kerastase Force Architecte and like expected from Kerastase, I love them, I can’t hide it, the juicy fruity fresh scent and stronger hair after every treatment ^^

The shampoo, the masque and the serum. They all feels wonderful and help build the hair structure from within. Please do read my previous post HERE for the press release and information regarding the products. On this post, it will be all about experience.

-*-

I always start things chronologically but this time I start with the product I love the most from the series, the mask. It was a very wonderful mask, I don’t have to use too much like most masks or creambath creams, just half of them and my hair become so soft, so smooth, stronger and even looks better too. Most mask on the market only give either one. It could be just an irresistible scent, a softer look, a silkier hair, a shine, but none give all plus adding the hair strength as well.

Kerastase Masque Force Architecte delivers a hair that like using the essence of all of those masks. The deeply coarse part of my hair still need more treatments and time to heal but less breakage for sure since the moment I’m using the Force Architecte series.

-*-


Next item and the last one deserve the second place, yes both of them. The shampoo since I need it and addicted to the scent and for the serum, I can use it with other products (other shampoo/conditioner) and anytime anywhere whenever needed.

The shampoo cleans the hair without causing them to be limp and oily like most shampoo for damaged hair. The scalp also felt clean, suitable for my oily scalp when other shampoo making them greasy. I know there are so many brands out there which claim protecting the hair, reduce damage, etc, but the result are disappointing. From clogged scalp, oily hair, and other just doesn’t work, a few even caused dandruff.

The shampoo also helps the hair to be stronger with the same ingredients used on the mask and some on the serum.

-*-


The duo tone serum is clear and green in one. Both in the transparent zone with one clear and one green oils. The oil feels light and kinda like a dry oil which easily distributed on the hair ends to help adding protection before hair drying or hair styling process.

It carry the same scent like the rest of the products in the Force Architecte series. And when used all three the scent last until the next day. I love it, my husband loves it and the formula is just wonderful.

-*-

Here’s a few tips from me:
1. When using the shampoo make sure to wet the hair and lather the thick white creamy gel on the palm before massage the hair with it.
2. Rinse well and made sure none are left behind, it doesn’t really matter is you use warm/cold water.
3. Toweled dry hair before the mask or squeeze them gently. Only put the mask on the mid length all the way to the end of the hair and never let it touches the scalp or even go near it.
4. Rinse the mask after a good 10-15 minutes covering the hair with a showering cap (this is for the home usage), but if you happen to have a steamer, go ahead and use on.
5. If you don’t have 10-15 minutes, 5 minutes also will do. Yes, they work fast too.
6. The mask is best to be rinse with warm water and massage it all the way through making sure the hair is clean, if there’s leftover the hair will feel sticky, so don’t left any leftover and rinse well.
7. Use the serum a pump at the time, if your hair is long, you may pump it again after distributing the first pump. No need to use too much ^^

-*-


And get a stronger hair day by day with the scent that loved by many. Plus get a monthly treatment at the salon for an infused dose therapy.

Thank you Kerastase Indonesia.

Hello dearies,

As perhaps some of you already aware, my hair has come down to this moment where they are dry, brittle and coarse. Not all of them just some where the hair was permed, so you can imagine there’s a part of my hair which damaged and the rest was just fine, healthy and shines.

So when Kerastase comes with the new Force Architecte for high level of damaged hair, I’m happily accept them with two open arms . . . wide open arms ^0^

Here’s a bit info from Kerastase Indonesia:


Jakarta, 8 April 2013- Kérastase menghadirkan inovasi produk perawatan untuk rambut rusak terbaru
dari L’Oréal Advanced Research yaitu Force Architecte yang menjadi solusi perawatan rambut rusak
pada level tinggi karena agresi dan proses kimia. Rangkaian Force Architecte terdiri dari Shampoo Bain
Force Architecte, Masque Force Architecte dan Reconstructing Dual Serum, Fibre Architecte.
Rangkaian
terbaru ini dilengkapi dengan teknologi Cyment-cylane3 Complex : Intra-Cylane untuk membuat rangka
pertahanan di sekitar rambut yang rusak, Pro-Keratin untuk mengisi bagian di antara korteks pada serat
rambut yang rapuh, dan Ceramides untuk membungkus dan memberikan perlindungan baik dari dalam
maupun luar permukaan rambut dengan berperan sebagai Intercellular Cement. Hasilnya, serat batang
rambut terekonstruksi dari dalam, terlindungi dan diperkuat pada permukaannya. Rambut kembali
memperoleh kekuatan dan kilaunya, serta lebih mudah ditata.

That’s what I want!

“Kehadiran rangkaian Force Architecte melengkapi rangkaian perawatan rambut rusak dari Kérastase
sehingga mampu menjawab berbagai permasalahan rambut rusak dari level paling dasar sampai dengan
level paling tinggi. Dengan hadirnya rangkaian ini, Kérastase kini memiliki dua rangkaian perawatan
rambut rusak yaitu Force Top Seal untuk kerusakan rambut level dasar pada tingkat erosi 1&2 yang
telah ada sebelumnya, serta rangkaian Force Architecte yang baru diluncurkan untuk kerusakan rambut
level tinggi pada tingkat erosi 3&4. Inovasi ini menjadi bukti komitmen kami di Kérastase untuk terus
menghadirkan teknologi terkini untuk rambut Indah para wanita”, terang Michel Toth selaku General
Manager Professional Products Division L’Oréal Indonesia.

So the previous collection is for a lower level of damage, 1-2.

Mengenai level kerusakan rambut, Hendra Purjaka selaku Senior Education and Commercial Manager
Kérastase Paris mengungkapkan:
“Rambut rusak, rapuh dan bercabang merupakan masalah teratas kedua yang banyak dialami oleh para
wanita khususnya wanita Indonesia. Faktor penyebab kerusakan rambut terbagi menjadi dua yaitu
kerusakan karena agresi teknis dan agresi kimia. Agresi teknis seperti sinar matahari, kandungan air
seperti kaporit, kebiasaan menata rambut (blow dry, catok, menyisir dan pony tail) serta panjangnya
rambut (karena semakin panjang rambut distribusi nutrisi tidak menyeluruh). Sedangkan agresi kimia
terjadi karena frekuensi melakukan servis kimia seperti pewarnaan, pelurusan dan pengeritingan rambut
tanpa melakukan perawatan yang sesuai”.
Berdasarkan penyebab dan kondisi korteks serta kutikula, level kerusakan dibagi menjadi empat tingkat
erosi pada rambut, yaitu:
Rangkaian Lengkap untuk Empat Level Kerusakan Rambut
Force Topseal dan Force Architecte menjadi dua rangkaian yang masing-masing terdiri dari produk
lengkap yang digunakan secara bertahap untuk mengatasi level kerusakan rambut masing-masing
wanita yang berbeda. Sebagai pelengkap di masing-masing rangkaian, produk Ciment Thermique yang
mampu melindungi rambut yang rusak dari panas alat styling dapat digunakan sebagai finishing touch.
1. Force Topseal untuk tingkat erosi level 1&2
Terdiri dari rangkaian produk yang telah lebih dulu dihadirkan oleh Kérastase yaitu Shampoo
Bain de Force, Conditioner Ciment Anti Usure untuk pemakaian harian dan Ciment Thermique
sebagai produk penataan sebelum blow dry.
Level 1 ketika lapisan kutikula tampak seperti terpisah dan permukaannya
tidak halus.
Level 2 ketika Lapisan kutikula terlihat dengan jelas terbuka dan terpisah.
Level 3 ketika permukaan rambut terlihat rusak dan kosong. Lapisan korteks
dapat terlihat dari luar.
Level 4 ketika Lapisan korteks terlihat rusak berat dan tererosi total.

I’m sure the damaged part of my hair is on level 3 and 4. Clearly seen when I do the hair check up on Irwan Team Salon with Kerastase Indonesia last week.

-*-

Here are the previous products which I’ve used and love so much, they are able to make my hair strong again after multiple styling, coloring and daily hair drying process. But since the perming chemical left too long on my hair, it cause a very damaged hair. They were like only 15 cm, but still the breakage, color fading, and tangles are unbearable sometimes. Level 1-2 products help my hair to stay intact and less ‘break-ups’, but to be able to be ‘filled’ again, I need 3-4.

-*-



Beside these products to be used at home, Kerastase also carries services at salons. Service which in Irwan Team salons deserve a room on their own, to be pampered, to be enjoyed and get the full benefit of the concetrated Kerastase products for once a week pampering times.

-*-



Below are the new series from Kerastase Resistance, the Force Architecte:

-*-


Fibre Architecte
Perawatan sekaligus penataan untuk rambut rapuh dengan
tingkat erosi 3-4 dapat memperkuat rambuh rapuh,
merekonstruksi, bahkan untuk rambut bercabang. Fibre
Architect memiliki kandungan teknologi Intra-Cylane, Pro-
Keratin dan Ceramides.
a. Intra-Cylane membuat rangka pertahanan di sekitar
rambut yang mengalami rapuh/patah dan bercabang
b. Pro-Keratin mengisi bagian di antara korteks untuk
membuat pertahanan makin solid
c. Ceramides membungkus bagian rambut untuk
memberikan perlindungan baik dari dalam maupun luar
permukaan rambut dengan menggunakan peran
Intercellular Cement

-*-


2. Force Architecte untuk tingkat erosi level 3&4
Terdiri dari rangkaian terbaru yaitu Bain Force Architecte, Masque Force Architecte dan Fibre
Architecte.
Bain Force Architecte
Shampoo untuk kulit kepala normal dengan rambut rapuh
tingkat erosi 3-4 dapat membersihkan, merekonstruksi dan
memperbaiki rambut rapuh.

-*-



Masque Force Architecte
Masker untuk kulit kepala normal dengan rambut rapuh tingkat
erosi 3-4 dapat memberikan nutrisi tertinggi, merekonstruksi
dan memperbaiki rambut rapuh.

These three items are available at my home right now and I’ll begin using them, so stay tune for the review, meanwhile, don’t hesitate to stop by at any Irwan Team Salon and try the products by yourself ^___^

So on the 9th of May 2013, I have the chance to meet them in real life and try the products at Irwan team Salon in Grand Indonesia. The ritual takes about 3 hours and it was an experience that I think anyone should try, at least once.

-*-



Start with a scalp and hair check at the salon.

-*-


It took around 5 minutes to figure it out which shampoo, mask, and oil suitable for my hair. Since my hair is colored and brittle at the same time, I can use the one for colored and the one for adding the hair strength. I figure I need the strength more than the shines of colors, so I choose the green bottle, Moringa Immortel.

-*-



This is the look of a badly coarse hair, nothing inside anymore, white.

-*-



Soon, they put me into a very comfortable outfit and a robe too. Drinks are available according to my preference and a biscuit.

Pamper time ON!

-*-



Now, are you curious how the ritual goes? Fret not! I’ll post it with a video attached on my facebook page (whileyouonearth.blogspot.com) or go directly to my youtube channel: HERE.

See you soon! I’ll share more review on Kerastase products!

Hello everyone!!!
This is a post dedicated for my sensitive scalp 🙂
Wait, sensitive? Usually people will talk about hair loss, oily scalp, dandruff, etc. Problems that usually occurred on scalp, sensitive? Pffft! It’s not even a problem, or is it?
According to Ms. Muthia Pratiwy, a PR from Kerastase Indonesia, all scalp problem start from a sensitive scalp, then become oily or too dry, which result in hair loss or dandruff. So scalp problem start from . . . sensitive scalp. And treatment for problematic scalp starts from? Tackling the sensitivity and Kerastase has develop 2 items from the Kerastase Specifique. Bain Vital Dermo-Calm and Soin Haute-Tolerance.
Bain Vital Dermo-Calm:
A cleansing Bath for normal to combination hair and sensitive, stressed scalps.
• Hair is soft, supple, light and revitalised.
• Scalp is soothed.
Apply a hazelnut-sized amount of Bain Vital Dermo-Calm to wet hair. Massage into scalp and hair. Rinse and repeat application. Leave in for 2-3 minutes. Rinse out thoroughly.
Complexe Hydra-Destress
• Callophylium oil to cool, calm and soothe irritation.
• Glycerol to moisturise the scalp.
• Piroctone Olamine, an anti-bacterial agent to stop itching.
and Soin Haute-Tolerance as a scalp tonic with  Hydra Stress Complex to take care and keep the scalp soft and smooth. A gentle treatment for scalp with a subtle scent and colorless.
Use after shampooing, apply it over the scalp evenly, massage well and leave it on 1-2 minutes. Add a bit water to emulsify and rinse it well. May be use continually.
I’ve said 2 products correct? And what is Bain Prevention. It’s a shampoo for my next step of hair growing system with Kerastase once the sensitivity is gone.
The problem that I have right now is oily scalp, and everything I did a scalp check in a salon or hair clinic, the machine can tell that I have a very active oil glands and some redness on the scalp. That’s sensitivity.
I’ll review 2 items now, the Bain Vital Dermo-Calm and Soin Haute-Tolerance. Bain Prevention will be review on the next posts (here’s it just a glimpse/sneak peek).
These are the products. I love blue shampoo heehee, the color of clear blue in shampoo is always represent the product that’s comforting and yes, calming.
The Soin Haute-Tolerance is a white lotion. A bit creamy but more to the lotion side.


Bain Vital Dermo-Calm is soothing and I really love the fresh aquatic scent. The effect on the hair is very lovely, at once the tresses relaxes and touch ably smooth and softer than before. On the scalp, the feeling is invigorating, calming and clean at the same time. It’s different and something that everyone should try. Since the scalp feels calmer somehow when usually within a day my scalp already feels to oily gradually the oiliness reduces. There was a time where I have to wash my hair 2x daily, now it becomes 5 times a week, which for me it’s a very good sign of a more resting scalp.

The shampoo doesn’t work instantly reducing the oils. At first, I still have to wash my hair daily, then after a week or so, I noticed my scalp feels clean all day long, when in the past it feels oily after 6 hours. I’m still using this product now.


Soin Haute Tolerance, the white scalp tonic lotion. The lotion feels tingling on the scalp after 2 minutes or so, and then if leave on too long will be a bit itchy. So use it accordingly, which is clean the hair and scalp with shampoo, I’m using it as a pair with Bain Vital Dermo-Calm and then after shampooing and rinsing, applied the lotion (which is a bit runny when wet) on the scalp after dividing my hair per section and apply thin layer on the scalp. Massage them well to make sure an even distribution. Leave it on for 1-2 minutes only. Add a bit of water and emulsify before rinsing everything off.

Continue with my usual conditioner for colored hair on the tresses only.

The scalp feels soothe and calm. I use it 1-2 times week.  
These two products (Bain Vital Dermo Calm and Soin Haute Tolerance) work side by side calming the scalp and later on I’ll try to do a scalp diagnostic at saloons such as Anna Wijaya, Irwan Team and other Kerastase representative.

Stay tune @__@

Hi everyone,
last week I went to Irwan Team Salon in Central Park Mall to try on the latest treatment from Kerastase, Fusio Dose.

There’s a lot of treatment incooperated with Fusio Dose, you may ask the details directly to the salon which have Kerastase’s products.

Details of Fusio Dose can be found HERE.

And on that day, I brought my mom, brother and sister as well, all of use has different type of hair and condition. Or so I thought.

It turns out that my mom, sis and me have the exact same Fusio Dose except my brother. The staff also mention that Fusio Dose Treatment can be used for just about any gender. All of us get a hair check before the treatment and the staff that will determine which products suits us best.

Here are our pics:

.

Above are my mom pictures of the process and after the treatment. Her hair appears stronger and the colors appears shinier than before.


So does my sister and me since all of us has the exact same products used.

Green bottle with the pink cap.

Green bottle: 3. Concentré Vita-Ciment: mengembalikan struktur alami rambut untuk hasil
rambut kuat, ringan dan lentur

Pink cap: Booster Polyphénols: memberikan aksi anti-oksidasi untuk melindungi kilau
rambut diwarnai


But we use different shampoo and conditioner (also from Kerastase).
.



The staff will also chose the correct range for each hair and scalp condition.

And 2 days later, I’m doing the treatment again and this time the staff gave me a different range for the hair.

Pink bottle and green cap.

Pink bottle: Concentré Pixelist: merawat kilau warna rambut untuk hasil rambut bercahaya
yang tahan lama
Green cap: Booster Céramide: memberikan aksi yang memperkuat daya tahan dari serat
rambut hingga ke lapisan terdalam

Please see the video of my 2nd treatment.

Here’s the step by step images.

After the hair check are done, the hair get cleaned

and after dried with towel, apply the Fusio Dose

Under the steamer for a mere 5 minutes and another rinse, followed by conditioner.

.



The hair is blow dried.

And it’s done, below is my before after picture of the 2nd treatment.




The hair condition are getting better and better, the feeling is much more softer and the hair appears healthier. 




All of us who tried the Fusio Dose Infusion Treatment really enjoy this 45 minutes quicky. The hair instantly gets what it need, the colored get boost of colors, the weak become stronger, no more drying hair as well, plus aging? Yes, they got it covered as well.




Thank you Kerastase Indonesia and Irwan Team Salon Central Park!

Elixir Ultime by Kerastase

Yesterday, I got this very lovely gift knocking on my door, yes, it’s from Kerastase Indonesia and I know in an instant, it is something good, alrite!

Yes, it is the anticipated product for hair ladies and gentlemen.  Kerastase – Elixir Ultime, here’s some details from kerastase.co.uk:

Our first versatile beautifying treament enriched with a complex for four precious oils. Maize, Argan, Camellia and Pracaxi oils combine to create a luxurious Elixir for all hair types.

  • The alchemy of four precious oils to beautify hair A new legend is born, the secret of magnificent hair is revealed.
  • – With a few drops of Elixir Ultime, hair is transformed into silky, weightless matter.
  • – Applied before cleansing, hair is instantly nourished and visibly regenerated.
  • Applied before styling, hair is incredibly supple and protected.
Oléo-Complexe Technology: A powerful combination of emollient and nourishing ingredients.

A blend of four precious oils inlcuding Argan, Cameillia, Maize and Pracaxi combine to createa a luxurious Elixir sutiable for all hair types.

1. Pracaxi Oil:
Originates from Amazonian regions. Celebrated for its rich conditioning properties.

2. Argan Oil:
Deriving from Morocco, it remains one of the rarest oils in the world. It is a prized oil famed for its nourishing benefits.

3. Maize Oil:
Extracted from corn germs from Central America. A Kérastase heritage oil used in our first ever masque.

4. Camellia Oil:
A luxurious and fragrant oil, extracted from camellia flowers traditionally from Central and Eastern Asia.

 
This is the kind of oil you can use just about anytime, pre-wash, after wash, after blow dry or just about anytime.

My review:

I found the oil to be light and feels like dry oil. The  coconut scent is mild and somehow reminds me of strolling around Hawaii, looking at the girls with strong, dark, long, luscious hair of theirs. Hmm, the presumption and reflection are a match alright, this product is made to help the hair nourished, protected, and regenerated. In the end it contribute to your hair to look like a Hawaiian princess, the thing is it wont be overnight. But daily usage may help you get achieve a bushy silky locks.

Here’s what you get from using it before shampooing, the dry parts of your hair will be protected and harsh chemicals from shampoo will not aggravate your hair further.
Using the oil after shampooing will protect your hair from dryness and nourished throughout the day. After blow drying, it helps your hair to stay smooth and frizzy-less. 

For me just using the Elixir Ultime anytime, helps my hair looking shiny and it fills the coarse, making each strands sleek and healthier.

Try to use it before bed time and waking up loving your hair ever more

Ciment Anti-Usure


I just used the treatment just now and found out I have to leave it in for 3 minute before rinsing it, bummer, I use it like a conditioner, will definitely pay attention on my next use.
Here is some details regarding Ciment Anti-Usure by Kerastase-USA.com:
Strengthens and protects damaged mid-lengths and ends. Helps provide instant detangling and lightweight conditioning.

Apply a quarter-sized amount to towel-dried hair and massage through, focusing on mid-lengths and ends. Leave in for 3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

The VITA-CIMENT® TOPSEAL technology combines Vita-Ciment Complex to reconstitute the intercellular cement, reconstruct the internal structure and consolidate the fiber core while the Vita-Topseal reconstitutes and coats the natural outer protective layer of the hair fiber.

My review:

This is my favorite scent of all Kerastase products, it is juicy and kinda sweet in green notes. Love love love.  I like the fact that they are light, unlike some Japanese brand I’ve use that provide healing properties and moisture to the hair yet gives too much on weight and oily. Like you put some cold butter to the hair and it sticks like candle wax. Kerastase Ciment Anti-Usure is a breeze, lightweight and works for dry coarse skin that is either thirsty of damaged by chemical process.

Will I use it again? Definitely yes!




I’ve tried many leave in before, from oils serums, water mixed with oils, vitamin water, cream, and I’ve used many mousse, gel, spray for adding volume too, but non of them even compared to Mousse Volumactive in terms of function and practicality. In short, it works!


First, let see the details from Kerastase-USA.com:

Hair has added strength and substance, with flexible hold and blow-dry protection. Hair is left with full, long-lasting volume. Style is protected with an anti-static effect.

Apply 2-4 puffs to towel-dried hair. Massage through from roots to ends. Comb through and style as usual. Do not rinse.

The AMPLI-CIMENT COMPLEX combines Vita-Ciment® Complex with contouring polymers for fullness, protection and shine. Imperceptible micro-particles allow strands to hook into each other during the styling process resulting in added fullness and control.

This is the mousse, soft, fluffy, and so fragrant. When they touched my hairs it’s all turns to disappear and leave no residue whatsoever. Superb! Most volumizer will be sticky or worst, heavy and creating a limp hair and looks oily. Other leave in can give shine but also adding weight to the hair. Mousse Volumactive gives protection to the hair from blow dryer, gives shine and softness to my hair, whilst in the same time volume that speaks body and fullness. It is definitely one of my favorite items of all time.

My verdict: You’ll love the soft and light mousse, juicy scent, and what it did to your hair. Full bounce and protection in one go. Practical and useful. Once you’ve tried it, will be difficult not to use it again.

Today at 1 PM, I went to Irwan Team Hair Design salon at Central Park Branch for a Kerastase treatment. The hair salon is luxurious but with a touch of simplicity and modern. I like their minimalist design and clean-cut layout. It’s like pure beauty and functionalist design with no fuss. And I figure it represent their service to the customer.
In the receptionist table you will be greeted and served fast, I like how they welcomed the guess, to the point without being too cold or too fake. It was professional with good manner.
Simplicity, in every angle.
All the services and Kerastase Rituals provided by Irwan Team Central Park. Take note that different branch may have different price on services and not all branches have Kerastase special treatment room. The Ritual started from Rp.250k and it can be as specific as your unique individual needs.
I went up to the second floor and it feels like a whole new experience than the first floor, the atmosphere here is relax and calming.
Washing area which specially designed chairs for extra comfort.
Here are some of the details of the treatment I’m getting today, Chronologiste Ritual by Kerastase.
First is diagnosing the scalp using the tool provided by Kerastase and perform by Ms. Melanie
She checked my scalp condition thoroughly and on many different spots. It seems like I do have several problem need to be taken care.
The scalp is oily, too oily perhaps, and on some parts are sensitive, marked by the red dots. So I need to calm those scalp first and tackle the oils.
Preparing for the treatment, they handed me some clothes with kimono to change + a pair slippers too. It’s a spa moments now.
Then I’m off with my hair washed with Bain Vital Dermo-Calm for my sensitive scalp and Bain Miroir for my INOA colored hair. And I’ve done my INOA coloring in Irwan Team Central Park too, couple days ago, you can view my experience —> Here.
After being washed with delicious scents of both shampoos, my experience continues . . .
Here are the components: the soft cream and lovely pearls of mimetic caviar concentrate. Details from Kerastase-USA.com:

Essential Restorative Concentrate for All Hair Types

The finest haircare treatment ever created by Kérastase. Complete rejuvenating cure for hair and scalp. Hair is left incredibly soft, supple and shiny. Hair fiber is renewed, deeply nourished and strengthened,. Hair integrity is preserved. Scalp is regenerated, soothed and hydrated.

Never before has such a large amount of active ingredients, in the highest concentration, been combined in one single formula. The secret of this miracle haircare lies in the fusion of two components, combined only at the time of application, to preserve the integrity of the precious ingredients. Pearls, immersed in sea-water, mimic the structure of caviar to maintain the quality of the active ingredients found within. A velvety cream deeply nourishes the fiber. Soothing molecules heal the scalp, gluco-lipids restore nutritive deficiencies, and anti-oxidants & vitamin E protect hair integrity.

After shampooing with the appropriate bain, add the pearls to the Chronologiste bowl and blend smoothly into the cream using the spatula. On towel-dried hair, part the hair, apply and massage the treatment section by section to the scalp, length and ends. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes, then add a small amount of water to create a lather and massage through the hair. Rinse thoroughly, so that all product is rinsed out completely. Recommended to be applied once a week as a treatment booster in addition to your current regimen.
Here are some notes I made through the treatment:


(Hair diagnostic done by Ms.Melanie and treatment by Mr.Surya.)

Dry the hair using towel then use a wide tooth comb 
Applying the cream to the hair section by section with a medium size spatua while getting a hot stone foot massage 
Now leaving the hair bundled plus get a massage for 10-15 minutes with roller balls too. The roller balls are so cold, it’s like 2 ice balls running here and there, chills I can feel down to my spine
Indeed a unique experience like no other, I wonder why Kerastase invent this method? Is it like the opposite of hot stone? Definitely is!
The balls are heavy apparently, each weight a kg
After the balls I’m putting my kimono back on for acupressure shoulder massage

Then using micromist for 10 minutes ( the hair ) plus hand massage. 
Last but not least, off to rinsing time. For the final touch right before the hair drying they gave me leave in perfecting milk from the Kerastase reflection
And I’m done. The whole process from the minute I walked in until my hair is dry took 2 hours. The hairs feels soft, smooth, healthy and alive again. No dryness seen and the scalp feels comfortable. The gorgeous scents last hours and hours. My hair stays rejuvenated, bouncy, and fresh longer than any treatment I’ve done before. And my whole body become so relaxed, I doze off the minute I reach home right after the treatment which was never happen to me before, it was like 5 PM. Totally suitable for those suffering from insomnia and high stressed life.
Perfected from Biotic, Nutritive, Resistance and Reflection, Chronologiste is all yours to enjoy from the scalp to the ends of your hair.
Conclusion based on experience:
The treatment is a relaxing inducing treatment in a low light room with instrumental music,drinks are provided with many varieties from jasmine tea, green tea, coffee to ginger. Like a true spa without the hassle.
What I like is the almost sounds proof room that kept the calmness. The massaging technique for the feet and shoulder + jasmine scented oil. It’s like they put  a lot of effort in relaxation, I think it’s significantly related to the treatment itself which perhaps the products can perform better in a such atmosphere where the hair, scalp, body and mind become one in the treatment. It’s a truly wonderful experience that you have to try for showing oneself an appreciation
Based on observation:
All the staff I’ve talked to, have a very good product knowledge and spot on attitude to the customers. I’ve paid attention to those surrounds me and I really enjoyed the professionalism in the staffs to them too, everyone was paying attention on the customer’s need and they all seems genuinely care and have a quick response. No hard sells are shown. Consultation are done where transaction based on the customer’s best interest.
Come and try their services, you’ll have a wonderful time here.
