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's good!

It works very well! It works like any other hair oil so I have no complaints!

Nice but not that nice

It did a great job of making my coarse, curly hair soft and shiny, but there are other products that do that as well, and they are half the price.

Just Okay

I brought this to the beach on vacation hoping it would help with crazy beach hair that you get. I feel just okay about this product. I liked the smell but my hair was still tangled and dry after each day in the sun and wind.

Did nothing for my thin hair

For starters, my hair is relatively thin and flat, with no real texture. I used this product on damp hair before shampooing, and I felt as though it didn't really do anything. It didn't help with my dry ombre'd ends. If anything, it weighed down my hair. I will be giving this to a friend with coarse hair, and it will hopefully suit her a little better.

so so

I love hair oils and I was expecting to love this esp. as it seems to be geared to thick hair. Sample size was so so small (the sample size I rec'd from a different brand was drastically more generous). It took me 10 minute to get a single drop from the vial, so I was kind of annoyed! I didn't really notice much of a scent. I used prior to blow drying and my hair was very soft - maybe softer than with oil I use now. I wish it was a better size sample so I could try it more than once but since I don't have more, I have to say that I like what I already use better

Good hair oil

It does a good job of generating shine and keeping frizzies down - not necessarily better than other products I've used but just as good. If you're committed to the brand I think its a good buy, lots of my friends like Kerastase hair products

Does what it's supposed to do

Not a huge fan of hair oil. This one isn't that great makes my hair feel heavy

Love the Smell & Texture

I like this product - it dispenses easily and cleanly, it smells great all day, and it doesn't leave my hair oily or sticky after use.
