Kérastase has added 2 new products to their Couture Styling collection : Baume Double JE and V.I.P. Volume In Powder! I've been obsessed with this brand since the past few months but the products I used were mostly hair-care products, nothing from the Couture Styling collection, so I was really curious to give these a try!

V.I.P. Volume in Powder Backcomb Effect Finishing Spray ($38 CDN for 193g)
This product is like an hybrid between a dry shampoo and an hairspray! It doesn't feel greasy or sticky which is always a good thing for me, I hate when I touch my hair and it has a weird residue in it.
This stuff really works, it helps to lift the hair at the roots! If your hair is super long you might not see much results, unless you have some layers. The powdery finish can even help to absorb oils so your hair doesn't get greasy as fast.
I like to use it when I want a high voluminous ponytail, I still need to backcomb my hair but less than usual and the spray gives more hold. I do suggest that you still use your favorite hairspray to set your hairstyle, because the V.I.P. Volume In Powder is best used as a root lifter.
I LOVE this spray!
Baume Double Je Multi-Talented Styling Balm ($36 CDN for 75ml)
Baume Double Je is a thick cream that has a slightly sticky consistency. A little amount goes a long way, and it gives good hold without feeling stiff or too sticky.
This balm is best for short to medium length hair, but if you have long and wavy/curly hair you can also warm up a small amount in your palm and scrunch your hair to add texture and a wild sexy look! It doesn't look crunchy and it has a matte finish so it's doesn't look greasy either.
I also love to use it to tame down my fly-aways!
