Kérastase Elixir Ultime Original 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?

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!

Pretty good

I liked it, but it didn't leave my hair as soft and smooth as I was hoping.

Nice product but too smooth

This smoothes and softens my hair too much. My hair is already very fine so I need more texture.
