Revitalize parched strands and frayed split ends with Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique - Protect.

Kérastase

Birchbox Breakdown

It took us a while to hop on the hair oil bandwagon, but boy were we missing out. This lightweight elixir is fortified with a unique combo of four essential oils to leave strands super shiny and manageable—whether your hair is curly, straight, or in between. Plus, we can use it as a pre-shampoo treatment or leave-in conditioner. What more can a girl ask for?

How it Works

A hair care all-star, this elixir nourishes our locks with a blend of antioxidant-rich camellia, argan, maize, and pracaxi oils. The pump dispenser allows for mess-proof applications, and we love how the weightless formula isn’t sticky.

How to Use

Smooth one to two pumps into damp hair before shampooing or blow drying. Alternately, work through clean, dry hair as a leave-in treatment.

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Zea Mays / Corn Germ Oil, Argania Spinosa Oil / Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Camellia Kissi / Camellia Kissi Seed Oil, Pentaclethra Macroloba Oil / Pentaclethra Macroloba Seed Oil, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene, Coumarine, Benzyl Alcohol, Parfum / Fragrance.

I've only used it as a leave-in conditioner...works great! Leaves hair feeling very soft. If I use conditioner, I only use a small amount because it kind of weighs down hair.

Nourishing yet lightweight

I would like to consider myself a hair product connoisseur. Having worked in salons and spa for over 8 years, I was able to try (and buy) many different product lines... At one time the salon I worked at was an authorized Kerastase retailer.. I never had the chance to try this elixir, but wow, am I glad I've tried it now. What I really LOVED about this is that I could apply it on wet or dry hair... And it NEVER feels greasy. In the initial application, I'll use 2 pumps of the elixir (I have very long, coarse, color-treated hair) and style as usual. I'll then use 1 pump to touch up right before flat ironing or the next day to give my hair a shine boost. I've tried products in the past that have weighed my hair down, but this just seeped right in and made my hair looks and feel healthier. The smell is nice... But I've never been particular about scents. This is the best Kerastase finishing product I've ever use and will be purchasing a full sized bottle soon! Of all the dozens of products I've tried for shine and smoothing, this may have just found its way to the top my list as a HG!

My Holy Grail Hair Product
SampledPurchased

This oil is absolutely fantastic. Just a dime size amount leaves hair looking and feeling soft, sleek, and shiny. While it is on the pricier side, a little goes a long way so it lasts FOREVER and makes up for the cost. I would recommend this oil to anyone and everyone.

Love love love

I have been using this for a few years and LOVE it. I'm so excited birchbox carries it because it's not easy to find where I live. It has changed by hair. It doesn't discolor it like some oils and makes my hair silky soft.

LOVE this oil
Purchased

This is an oil that I repurchased. I have curly hair that sometimes gets really dry at my crown & ends. I apply this on at night (on wet or dry hair) and notice a difference in the morning. And it does not make your hair feel greasy at all.

Fairly heavy oil
Purchased

I've been trying to work on how much of this to use and I can't figure out a way to use it that doesn't weigh down my hair. I like Kerastase products but this one is tricky.

This stuff is expensive but worth it. I love the way it makes my hair feel and it keeps it moisturized even during the dry chicago winters.

Great Product, Great Smell!!

I love this oil bc it has a super lightweight texture and it smells absolutely amazing. It also gives you hair great shine. This product is a bit on the pricy side, but it is totally worth it.
