Kérastase Elixir Ultime Nourishing Hair Oil

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 that it never feels sticky. In to applying it as a pre-styling helper, it can also be used to smooth fly-aways when you're done or add shine whenever you need a touch up.

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.

Disappointed
Purchased

I had very high expectations about this product, and it was absolutely disappointing. Considering the price I was expecting an extraordinary change on my hair and it just didn't happen. I've been using it for over a month now and no change whatsoever. I'll just buy moroccan oil next time

Not impressed
Sampled

I love using oil and other hydrating products for my hair. I have the ends dyed so I need to be very diligent about keeping my hair in good shape. I was not impressed by this hair product. I didn't even notice a difference. It could be that I didn't use enough but the sample size was very small. I have other products that work so much better than this.

not for me
Sampled

It made my hair smooth and very shiny. After reading the ingredients on this though, I think I am better off using straight argan oil on my hair so I can avoid the fragrance, chemicals, and other stuff in this.

Heavy

Not a fan. No matter how little I used and by following the directions it still made my hair heavy and greasy looking.

Not for people with any oil in their hair at all!!!
Sampled

The product when used in the shower with shampoo did okay, but I really couldn't tell a difference. Dry hair soaks it up an it will look like you never washed your hair at all

Not for me

I have used this product several times and can't even tell the difference in my hair, I'm not going to buy a product that does absolutely nothing.

Not good for fine bleached hair

I have fine bleached hair so when I use it my hair looks oily and then when I go out in the sun it burns my hair.

Nothing special
Sampled

I've used this product multiple times in a variety of ways: before shampooing, after shampooing but before drying, and after styling. My hair is only slightly softer, but I no longer notice it after 30 min. Other than that, I really don't notice anything happening to my hair when I use this product. It might work for some people, but for me it did nothing.
