The Kérastase Fondant Extentioniste conditioner is packaged in a beautiful opaque shiny green-blue soft squeeze bottle. The same color is also used for all of the Kérastase Extentioniste collection. It is in the shape of a squeeze bottle, so the cap is at the bottom, two-coloured, a darker green blue shade with silver on top, where the bottle opens. On the front of the bottle, you’ll find the name of the brand, the name of the product, and some of the benefits of the conditioner. On the back as usual, you can find the ingredients and the application advice.
It is medium in size, which isn’t the best for a short weekend getaway travel, but it’s elegant enough to stand proudly on your shelf.
This Kérastase Fondant Extentioniste is designed for slow growing hair with damaged lengths.
The brand recommends applying a quarter sized amount of the conditioner to wet hair, working from mid-length to ends. Leave in for 2-3 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. We found that the conditioner is more efficient when used with the corresponding shampoo, the Kérastase Bain Extentioniste.
Pro-tip: If you have very thin hair, we don’t recommend applying conditioner, as it usually weighs your hair down and facilitates breakage. However, you can use a hazelnut-sized quantity on your clean dry hair, focusing solely on the lengths. It will nourish and add some shine to your do!
The Fondant is white and creamy, almost pearly but not greasy or oily in feel.
It smells great with a flowery smell, leaving your hair feeling and radiating freshness all day.
The Extentioniste Fondant is enriched with a combination of Creatine R, Creatine, Ceramides and Maleic Acid, helping to reinforce and seal cuticles with a uniform coating from roots to tips. Similar to most conditioners, the Extentioniste Fondant detangles hair for a comb-through without breakage and a uniform silky feel. Overall, it improves strength and elasticity to encourage hair growth. As a result, some users experience hair growing faster than it normally does, as the conditioner helps to repair the hair and protect it from further damage.
We also found that in most cases, the use of the Fondant Extentioniste in combination with the Bain Extentioniste is very efficient to prevent or significantly diminish breakage and deeply hydrate and nourish the hair.
Overall the fondant is meant to revitalise, restore and stimulate damaged and broken long hair, which is does! A fair warning that frequent use can result in hair that becomes greasy quicker than it habitually does. In this case, we recommend spacing out the application to once a week or three times a month.
Highly recommend for users who are desperately trying to grow out their damaged hair!
This conditioner is priced at 32.8$ for a 200ml bottle.
