{REVIEW} Kérastase Forme Fatale


If you’re looking for anything and everything hair then head on over to the online hair haven – everythinghair.co.za. They recently sent over a box filled with hair care goodies to try out and naturally the first product that caught my volume-loving eye (thanks to the name and packaging) was the Kérastase Forme Fatale Voluptuous Blow-Dry Gel. As the name suggests this gel gives your hair that extra oomph it might need. If your hair is fine and flat like mine then it definitely needs that extra bit of bulk. When I think of the Kérastase brand I immediately think luxury hair care, don’t you? The Forme Fatale blow dry gel forms part of the new Kérastase Couture Styling Collection, which is described as being fusional long-lasting hold and hair that moves freely and feels irresistible.


One of the many things that I like about Forme Fatale is that it’s formulated with a heat-styling protective agent. In my opinion all blow-drying products should contain something to protect hair. Heat styling tools are extremely damaging after all. This Kérastase voluptuous blow-dry gel offers a firm hold but without the tacky, hard feeling that hairspray or regular firm fold gels give. It also provides a bit of texture to hair which is something that fine, flat hair screams for. I’ve even noticed that it makes teasing easier by giving your hair a little extra something to work with.

This might be classed as a “gel” but it doesn’t have the typical gel consistency. It doesn’t leave my hair feeling heavy, sticky or matted like gel normally does. It doesn’t weigh down my fine hair and offers more than enough shape to my hair. It helps to keep my curls in for longer and prevents my hair from instantly falling flat. There’s a light gold shimmer that runs through the product that I’d like to believe makes your mane a bit shinier. It combs through your hair evenly and easily and leaves a lovely salon scent behind.



Head on over to EverythingHair where you can find Kérastase Forme Fatale (R355) as well as the rest of the Couture Styling Collection. You’ll find various Kérastase products that offer volume, control and hold.
