Kerastase Resistance Bain Force Architecte Shampoo Review

By Divya V.

Hello Ladies,

I missed IMBBing for more than 2 months…..OMG! what was I even thinking. Blame work. I finally took some break and the first thing I started was penning down this review. I recently found an amazing shampoo. Check out what makes it so amazing. Let’s start with my hair loss story. I used to have thick, black, silky hair until grade 12. After that, there is no stop to my hair loss. I have been diagnosed with PCOS and the common symptom is hair fall – lots and lots.  I stopped looking down the drain during hair wash for fear of losing my sanity seeing the amount of hair lost. I used many medicines, but there was no hope. Googling helped me learn that a proper diet is also necessary along with good hair care to stop hair fall from PCOS.  I cannot bring back my fallen hair, but swore to prevent further hair loss and hair damage. So, I started taking flax seeds, walnuts and all foods good for hair primarily and then went on a hunt for quality hair products. One of my best finds is the Kerastase Resistance Bain force Architecte.

Rs. 1500/- for 250 ml.


The shampoo comes in a medium-sized sturdy light green bottle. The nozzle is small and so there is no product wastage. One can control the amount of product to be drawn out to use. Overall, the packaging is very travel friendly.

My Experience with Kerastase Resistance Bain Force Architecte Shampoo:

Hair fall is one problem and my next biggest issue is dry and brittle hair. You can say my hair is almost dying, but thanks to this product, I can see a tiny ray of hope. After only a few washes, my hair has returned to its original soft silky texture and my split ends are repairing. I usually have loose strands of hair when I run my fingers through, but now it has stopped. Hair fall during wash is also considerably less. I do not say that my hair loss has stopped, but it is way better now. The condition of my hair I tell you has improved a lot, from dry, brittle to all soft and silky.

It was an amazing transition and that too in a very little amount of time. After a month of religiously using this shampoo once in every 3 days, my hair is going the healthy way. Hair looks thicker as the shampoo adds a little body to hair. The product really works and does justice to the price tag. The shampoo has a citrusy smell which lasts for about 2 days which is a bonus. I have medium length hair and only need a small amount of product to work with my entire hair. So, the bottle would probably last for one more month – 2 months whole. I follow up with a mask from the same range which I also love and would review soon.

  1. Grt review divya…. U have pcos..well we see many pts with pcos now a days… Its increased in number since the last few years… Or maybe technology is improving and we r detecting more cases each year.. R u having weight issues as well?????

    1. Hi Arpita,

      Yea my doc has also been saying the pcos condition has increased a lot in recent times.

      Thankfully I have no weight issues

  2. Great review, Divya! Sounds like something I should definitely try! I understand your hair fall issues due to PCOS. I too have the same problem of PCOS, and as a bonus, I also have hypothyroidism!! Both these together have totally wrecked my hair – Hairfall, grey hair, what not. Hope someone finds a miracle cure for hair fall! 🙂 And for weight loos too! 😀

  3. Thanks Divya for such detailed and wonderful review. Even I suffer from PCOD and understand the pain of hairfall. I will definetly try the shampoo.
