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?

Smells icky, doesn't work
Sampled

I usually use Moroccan Oil for my extra dry wavy hair and honestly, this didn't even come close. My hair was still extra frizzy even after adding twice the recommended amount. I do, however, live in CO and we have little to no moisture in the air which could have contributed.

But honestly, that wasn't the deal breaker. It smelled awful and chemically, even my boyfriend noticed and asked if I had burned my hair with a flatiron. I tried this, I really did, and I really wanted to like it, but it just didn't work.

I was really excited to try the Kerastase line and I really WANTED to like it...However, I just was not impressed. I've used Biosilk and Alterna Bamboo Oil on a regular basis, and I can honestly say, I will stick to my Biosilk.

It is not any better or worse than other products I own.

another hair oil

If you like products that contain the hair smoothing silicones, you'll definitely like this too. I just wasn't impressed with it in confront with the other ones I've tried. Keep in mind I also have fine, longer straight hair and don't like for it to be super straight and flat.

I found that the product irritated my scalp. I would choose an Argan Oil product over this because it has similar effects. The product smelt nice though. Would consider using a Kerastase product that was more tailored to my sensitive skin.

I liked this, but I don't think I'd buy it. It did make my hair shiny without that greasy residue, but it did not take any of my frizz away...and I used a decent amount each time. I think a drugstore oil would perform about the same.

This is a good product which can be used in many different ways. I have fine hair but lots of it. It really made it slightly fuller and added a nice shine. I might consider buying it and trying it for a longer amount of time since the sample was so small.

It's just okay.

I prefer a similar product I already use and it makes my hair a little greasy. The smell is pretty nice though.

Definitely imparts some shine to my hair, but that's about all I notice.

Good product

Not bad. I am a Kerastase lover use their shampoo and conditioner but I have blonde ombre hair that tends to get oily so usually refrain from using products of this type. Nevertheless, if you are into these types of oils would probably be a good investment.
