Kérastase Elixir Ultime Original Oil

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?

I have wavy dry hair. Got this but it didn't really seem to do much. On top of it made my scalp itchy after about 2 weeks of use

Not in love
Sampled

This product, to me, was no different than any "big name" hair oil. It was light and not thick, which was nice. But, I didn't really have too much of a dramatic effect after using this product. I feel like any other product I could buy at Walmart for $10 would do the same thing honestly.

It did have a nice smell though!

Very greasy
Sampled

The product was extremely greasy. While my hair is dry, I did not like the way this made my hair feel.

Doesn't empresssed

I have damaged hair with dry split ends.
I have this oil on the full size.I used it about 6 months,but i don't see any difference before i start to use it.
I have the much better experiences with Macadamia oil.

Too Heavy, Arrived Open
Sampled

I'm just not a fan. It is too heavy, doesn't smell great and reminds me of hot oil treatments we used as teens.

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.
