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?

Nice hair oil
Sampled

This was a nice product, it smells wonderful and does make my hair a little smoother and shinier, but for the price I would expect a little more.

Great Smell
Sampled

I thought this product smelled great and worked well, but I don't know if the oil is just too light or the sample size is just too small, but it wasn't enough for my thick, afro-textured hair. I probably would need a lot to penetrate my hair and have any effect, so I'll probably pass.

Smelled like heaven
Sampled

This product smelled AMAZING!!!! I am tempted to purchase it for the smell alone. The product itself is just not good for my hair type. I have very fine, straight hair, so any product that fights volumizing is not in my hair routine. However, if you need an Elixir for your hair, this is worth a try.

A little heavy
Sampled

I have used kerastase products in the past and have liked them, however I thought this product was a little heavy for my hair (straight, blonde, thick, partially highlighted). On the plus side, it did offer heat protection and shine. I would use sparingly and only on the outer 1/3 of strands.

not the best I've tried
Sampled

This product was just average to me. I have tried other products along the same lines and have found some that are less expensive and work just as well if not better.

It's okay

It's decent stuff, but there are other hairs oils out there that are cheaper.

Great oil, a bit pricey
Sampled

I use Argan or Moroccan oil on my hair almost every time I style it, however I feel that it's pretty much all the same if it's pure oil. The Keratasse oil is nice, but too pricey for me. I'd rather spend the money on makeup than hair oil.

Kerastase Elixir Ultime

Good stuff! There are other hair elixirs out there that aren't as pricey as Kerastase. I use a lot of hair conditioners, and I don't wash my hair often so as not to strip the natural oils out of my hair. I'm not sure that this is a product I would go for every time I am ready for a blowout or a hair iron essential.

Healthy Shine
Sampled

I have thick coarse hair so the sample size was just enough to try it once. I really liked the shine that it added to my hair, but I am not convinced that it is much better than products you can find for a lower price tag.
