    Anybody know any alternatives to Kerastase? Thinking of going to Sally's Beauty supply tomrrow and picking something up.

    What exactly do you want from it?

    Can I be your personal shopper?

    I want my hair to feel as good as it did while using their Capital Force.

    Well for one, "men's" hair products are poop, they just charge you more money for a watered down product. And do you have thin hair, thick hair, coarse, etc?

    I used to work at Sephora, so I'm a self-proclaimed beauty expert.

    Its pretty thin and tends to get poofy when it gets long.

    I say go to CVS instead of Sally's, and go to the professional hair care aisle. I have pretty much the same hair, and I like the Nexxus Diamatress conditioner and a mild shampoo, anything that claims to be moisturizing. I like Ion's whole mild line, but it doesn't really matter for shampoo, the recipes are all very similar, it's conditioners that matter.
    And you can get leave in conditioner to make your hair less poofy without losing volume, I like Macadamia.

    PS I'm typing this on a pretty moderate wine buzz and I'm giggling at everything so take this with a grain of salt.

    The Kerastase product line is superb and I wouldn't use anything else. It's worth the expense.

    Some of their products, there is no alternative; Capitol Force is in that category. Remember L'Oreal makes about everything under the sun but reserves quality ingredients for their high-end lines. It's well worth the price. Usually there's wholesale/bulk deals on strawberrynet.com; I get 16oz. of conditioner for about $90, and that lasts over a year.

    Ugh...wrong. Some lines are similar but nothing beats Kerastase. They are and do what they say unlike other lines. Alterna makes a caviar line that is pretty good too. Davines has some great things too.

    I am a professional hair stylist.

    I take back everything I said, I had no idea this was a $90 product!! If they aren't smashing live fetuses into that bottle, it's not worth it.

    L'oreal Professional.

    I used to use Kerastase all the time when I had longer bleached hair and then a stylist told me L'oreal's range uses practically the same ingredients minus the premium. Same parent company.

    Oh and OP if you have fine hair skip any kind of conditioner. Instead buy a leave in thickening conditioner or Bumble & Bumble's Thickening Spray. That stuff is killer for making your hair thick. I felt like I had extensions in when I used it.
