Kérastase Elixir Ultime Nourishing Hair 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 tried the product included in the BB. I have long curly hair, so the sample was enough for one use, but honestly I think that I would need more than was included to get the full effect. It was okay. I didn't see any major improvement after using it. I have dry curly hair, and this just didn't do the trick for me.

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.

Seems to be a dryer oil. Which is good and bad. I couldn't feel it absorbing into my skin as well as others.

No hair oil for me!

My hair unfortunately just doesn't take well to hair oil - I wish it did knowing all of the benefits, but I always have to give it away to friends! Good news? This hair oil has gotten rave reviews from the friend that used it!

Perfect texture for hair oil, not to oily. Nice and light weight. Leaves hair feeling soft and healthy.

A bit thick in consistency

I use an oil hair product on damp hair and after blow drying. This was too heavy for applying to damp hair, but would be fine for a light application to tame frizzies.
