The shampoo comes in a light green container with a capacity of 250ml.

Hair Type:

This shampoo is designed for hair with oily roots.


The shampoo smelled fresh, but it is not overpowering.


The texture of the product is creamy.


Most common shampoos rely heavily on silicones which have little to no affinity with human skin or hair and are water insoluble, meaning they are very tricky to wash out as they form a layer around the hair shaft, smothering the hair and preventing moisture from penetrating, which will – over time – lead to dryness and brittleness. Yet, it is still used as a main ingredient to most shampoos since it gives your hair added shine and smoothness.
Fortunately, the Bain Divalent shampoo is silicone free. This means no compromise on hair/scalp care especially and hence the “balancing shampoo” attribute mentioned on the label.
Upon using the shampoo, we found it to be gentle on the hair because of its rich creamy-like texture.
The amount to use depends on hair length: the shorter and/or thinner the hair, the less quantity needed. We left the product on the hair for 2 minutes before rinsing it out. It rinsed out easily and one passage was enough to ensure that no residual amount is left on the hair and scalp. The shampoo was used 3-4 times a week over a period of 3 weeks.
After the first two washes, the hair instantly felt clean, refreshed and nourished. As per the label, the shampoo reduced the oiliness of the roots and strengthened the ends of the hair – particularly if you have very long hair. We specifically noticed that the ends of the hair felt smoother and stronger as they broke less often. The hair looked healthier and more voluminous. No conditioner was used in parallel with the shampoo and we concluded that there is no need for it contrary to other types of shampoos.
Other benefits of this shampoo include 3 main ingredients: calophyllum oil which calms irritation with anti- inflammatory actions, Piroctone which is an anti-bacterial active ingredient that soothes itching and irritations and finally glycerin which moisturizes the scalp to relax it from external aggressions.
Once the hair reaps the benefits of Kérastase Bain Divalent, we recommend using it with another shampoo that has proven effective on your hair type by alternating between the two and using the Kérastase one as a hair are treatment more than a regular daily rinsing shampoo in order to avoid your hair and scalp to accommodate to its effects and become immune to them.


“Kérastase Specifique Bain Divalent” is sold for $26.9/250ml. It is less expensive than Rene Furterer Curbicia Lightness Regulating Shampoo sold at 32$ for 150ml. But you can find also other shampoos less pricy to treat your oily roots like Klorane Shampoo with Nettle sold at 13$/200ml.

    Recently I’ve been having oily roots, and I tried this shampoo twice and already got the results I wanted. This shampoo matched my hair type and I recommend for everyone struggling with oily roots. Will definitely buy it again!

    Well I have oily hair roots but dry hair so Ounussa sent me this product with the Nutritive Nectar Thermique specifically so I review them.
    About the shampoo, The texture isn’t heavy, it is soft on the roots and refreshing. But it leaves the hair very dry and it felt hard to brush. Regarding the smell it’s good and long lasting.

    Very good treatment for the hair

    Submitted by Audrey Mantoura


    I used the shampoo for a period of 3 weeks. It took a few utilization of the product to feel the difference on my roots. When I used the shampoo my hair felt thicker as first with a difficulty to brush so I had to use a conditioner. My hair is definitely less oily now, the freshness of my hair also lasts for a longer period of time. I didn’t feel a particular difference of the ends of my hair though. Recommended for a treatment against oily roots.
