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?

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 didn't hate it
Sampled

I used the sample size it came with my birch box. I didn't feel like it made my hair feel any better? It was almost too oily for my hair type. I wouldn't buy this product for that reason.

Nothing special - product works, but it's just ok

I think the product was fine, but there are so many similar products that come in my Birchbox. You could mix them all up and except for smell, many of them are hard to tell apart. I think I would buy the one priced most affordably or that had the best smell.

Heavy and sticky
Sampled

I have straight hair and I used this product on dry hair to keep it smooth. However, it made my hair sticky and feeling greasy. I also didn't enjoy the smell of the product. I haven't tried it yet as a pre-shampoo treatment so maybe it works better that way.

Not that impressed
Sampled

I was really excited to try this, however, after a few weeks I haven't seen any difference in my hair. I have been using it as instructed, before shampooing. Maybe I'll try using it as a styling oil instead.

good hair oil

This is a good hair oil. It is good not great not extraordinary. It is light, it does leave hair silky and is not heavy. However, I think it is too expensive and I would not buy again when I can get other oils to work just as well for less.
