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?

Doesn't hold curls

This product has a nice texture ands ell. However, it leaves your hands greasy and does not hold curls. I would not purchase this product.

Meh

The very first ingredient is cyclopentasiloxane, a silicone. I personally do not like silicones in my hair care products since silicones can build up in your hair over time and weigh your hair down. As someone with very fine hair, the last thing I need is a product that will bring down my volume.

I found the product was not moisturizing enough plus it left a slippery film over my 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..
Sampled

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.

Not effective

Tried it on both wet hair before wash and dry hair for shine. Made my hair greasy both times. Not a fan.

Thin Hair Beware

If you've got anything but thick, frizzy hair I don't think this is the product for you. It ended up just weighing down my fine thin hair and making it look greasy. Plus in the tester size it was hard to get it to come out and when you did it mostly just went all down you hand and everywhere you didn't intend it to. They need to make it a little bigger so it's easier to keep a hold of.
