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 mess-proof applications, and we love that it never feels sticky. In to applying it as a pre-styling helper, it can also be used to smooth fly-aways when you're done or add shine whenever you need a touch up.

Seems good, not entirely relevant to me

I've used this product a few times now and here's what i think:

- Great scent. I put it on before shampooing and even after the shampoo/conditioner I can still smell it on my hair.
-A little goes a long way. You only need a few pumps and you're good to go, so it lasts a while.
-Seems like a good quality product, but because my hair is only shoulder length and pretty fine, it's not totally necessary. My hair is relatively soft as it is, but if it were heat damaged or chemically treated, I'd probably find this product more useful.

Nothing crazy
Sampled

I have fine hair, but it's pretty dense. My hair is long so it needs extra moisture and care. Oils like these are really good for that. While I liked the oil, I wasn't wild for it. I think there are better products over there that do the job and are less oily.

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.

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.
