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 messproof applications, and we love that it never feels sticky. In addition to applying it as a prestyling helper, it can also be used to smooth flyaways when you're done or add luster whenever you need a touchup.

Just ok...

This product works ok for smoothing out frizz, but I think Moroccan oil works much better - not planning to purchase this one...

OK
Sampled

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.

Eh......

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.

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.

it's ok.

It doesn't seem to weigh down my fine hair as long as I use it on the lower half of my hair.

Oily

I already have oily hair so I try to stay away from hair oils. I would much rather have dry shampoo and hair mask products
