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?

smells good
Sampled

It smells good but not sure it is doing anything for my hair. I've been using it as a pre conditioner before shampooing as recommended. I must add thought that I recently got a lot of length cut off and my hair is in great condition already because all the old ends are gone so maybe I wasn't the best candidate for this product but like I said it smells really good.

Not sure it did much....
Sampled

Liked the product overall but to be honest I'm not sure I noticed a huge change in my hair. I have very curly think hair and although my hair overall felt fine, I'm not sure this made a huge difference.

Too Heavy
Sampled

Since i have straight hair, I dabbed this on my ends only and found the oil to heavy and the scent was not appealing to me.

Adds tons of shine to my hair.

I love the smell, it's very perfume-y. I apply this on second day hair right before I go to bed, then wash it out in the morning, following with my regular shampoo and conditioner. Makes my hair very shiny.

unsure

I used the whole sample and didn't notice much of a difference in my hair, Its colored and heat treated daily and I expected more of an improvement than I noticed, especially for the price!

Ok as pre shampoo treatment
Sampled

This is too heavy to use as a styling treatment on my fine, thin hair. I have used it as a pre-shampoo treatment and it does leave my hair silkier. The smell is ok, it's a little too floral/perfume for me but it doesn't really linger anyway. I think this would probably be great for someone with coarse hair. I will enjoy the sample but know I will not purchase at this high price.

Ok

Pretty good. However even a small amount made my hair kind of greasy

This hair oil is just OK. Not as good as Moroccan Oil or any of the Alterna products I've used.

Hmmm

This stuff smells delicious. And it is not sticky, but for me I don't think it is doing anything. My hair is still dry and frizzy. Maybe I haven't used it consistently enough? I have been using it as a leave - in conditioner because I don't want to just shampoo it right out.

Soft Hair!
Sampled

I have biracial hair - it's soft but dry and VERY curly, so I've tried many products. Keratase definitely smells wonderful and it does make my hair feel much softer. Although I can't say it's my go-to product, it's nice to add a little shine and yummy scent!
