Kérastase SPECIAL

Kérastase has made its signature Chronologiste line even more luxurious with the addition of a new key ingredient, Abyssine. This is a molecule found in the deepest volcanic rifts in the sea, and is said to possess calming and restorative properties.

Each product in the range also contains scalp-soothing bisabolol, hair-strengthening lipids, vitamins A and E to protect against UV rays, ceramides, and nourishing Oleo- Complexe – a combination of ingredients that aims to revitalise all types of hair.

For your at-home regimen, start with Soin Gommage Rénovateur ($66 for 200ml), a treatment that claims to detox and calm the scalp to help the subsequent products you apply work more efficiently. Next, use the Revitalizing Shampoo ($39 for 250ml) to moisturise and soothe the scalp. Follow with the Regeneration Mask ($69 for 200ml) to restore the smoothness of hair fibres. Finally, after drying your hair, apply Parfum En Huile ($79 for 125ml) for an ultra-shiny finish – this is said to be three times more concentrated than other hair oils, and has a jasmine and myrrh fragrance created by Alberto Morillas, the man behind classic perfumes like Flower by Kenzo and Lancome Miracle.
In-Salon treatment
The crowning glory of the Chronologiste line is the in-salon ritual. This 60-minute pampering session begins with a shoulder massage, followed by intensive cleansing, then treatment using a blend of the “caviar” pearls and the nourishing Regeneration Mask. As the products work on your hair and scalp, you are treated to a second hair and shoulder massage. The session finishes with the Parfum En Huile, so you leave the salon relaxed, pampered and with perfectly glossy, delicately scented tresses.
“My severely abused follicles are pampered by the ingredients – Abyssine and mimetic caviar pearls – used in Chronologiste products. The luxe in-salon ritual is absolutely pampering and addictive.”

Pat Law, founder of social media agency Goodstuph
“My bleached hair has regained its shine and softness, thanks to the in-salon Chronologiste treatment.”

Tracy Philips, creative consultant
Here’s what the hair experts have to say about good haircare and the Kérastase Chronologiste range:

“My favourite product from the Chronologiste range is Soin Gommage Rénovateur, a pre-shampoo scrub. To have healthy hair, you need to have a healthy scalp first. This product helps to exfoliate the scalp and has a pH value that is gentle on the scalp and hair. After using it, the scalp should feel more comfortable, clean and light.

“For dry hair, I recommend the Chronologiste Caviar Treatment, which can be done at our salon. It can help restore the health of your hair after three to four treatments. For at-home care, choose a shampoo that meets your scalp’s needs, and a conditioner that is suitable for your hair texture. The Chronologiste line offers various treatments for at-home care, for different scalp and hair types.”

June Ng, Styling director of J’s Salon/Salon 360

“Women often seek the latest chemical treatments to change their hairstyle and hair colour, to keep up with popular trends. At the same time, some of them believe that such chemical treatments will make their hair dry or brittle. However, this is not true.

“What’s important is to choose the right in-salon treatment and at-home haircare. I find that one excellent haircare product is the Chronologiste Crème de Régénération. Not only does this mask lock moisture deep within your hair, it also gives extra shine to your tresses all day long.”

Gary Chew, director and co-founder of Salon Vim
“These days, consumers pay a lot of attention to haircare. The secret to gorgeous hair? Using the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Plus, it helps to use a good hair tonic for your scalp, a leave-in hair serum for extra shine, and a weekly hair mask. One of my favourite products: Chronologiste Parfum En Huile, a perfume oil that can be used daily for shine and softness, and has a wonderful fragrance.”
