Kérastase Elixir Ultime - Prime

It took us a while to hop on the hair oil bandwagon, and man oh man were we missing out. This lightweight elixir is fortified with a unique combo of four essential oils (camellia, argan, maize, and pracaxi) to leave strands super shiny and manageable——whether your hair is curly, straight, or in between. The pump dispenser allows for mess-proof applications, and we love how the weightless formula isn'’t sticky. Plus, we can use it as a pre-shampoo treatment or leave-in conditioner. What more can a girl ask for?

What is this supposed to do, anyway?

I've purchased Kerastase hair products before and am not afraid to spend money for good products. I've used this sample every day since receiving it and I honestly don't think it does anything. I've followed both sets of instructions: to either use before shampooing or after as a leave-in treatment. It smells nice, but other than that I don't think it has actually done anything. I wouldn't pay for something that doesn't seem effective. Nice size sample though.

Smells like chemicals
Sampled

The smell is horrendous! It smelled like I had burnt my hair when I hadn't even blow dried that day. It's a cheap repackaged product, stay away!

Smells great, works fine
Sampled

This product smells great! I have fine hair which goes limp when just about any product is used. Unfortunately, although it smoothed my frizzies, my hair was flat to my head within a few hours. I won't be buying, but I do recommend to people who like or want to try hair oils.

My hair is very oily so the product made...
Sampled

My hair is very oily so the product made me hair look stringy and greasy. I would recommend this product to someone with dry hair.

Not impressed

I used this and did not really notice any difference. I already have a Keratin treatment in my hair (from a salon) so maybe I'm not the best judge... I also have a lot of very thick hair so I might not have used enough. But if I were, I'd use almost the whole thing in one try! And it was hard to smooth through my hair. I'll stick with my keratin treatments.

Greasy!

Ah! Just makes my hair greasy. I only wash my hair once a week. and maybe condition hair every 3 to 5 days. my hair does not get greasy. This product just made may hair look unclean. To be fair, I wear my hair curly and only straighten for special occasions. Maybe it will work for women with straight hair?

Not bad..

Not the best hair product but also nothing special about it. Would of preferred something useful in my box, I've received better hair oils that I'm still using since February.

Good Product

I used this before washing my hair, since I have fine textured hair. My hair is quite smoother. Not a hug difference, but worth buying the product if your dries out from coloring or styling.

NOt for me

I was excited to try this oil, however, I have tried other hair oils that I liked better. It made my hair feel flat and I did not see any restorative qualities. I will stick to Moroccan Oil.
