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?

The first day I used this, my hair so beautifully curled. Usually it's wavy, so I could tell this locked in moisture superbly. Will continue using. Plus they send u such a big size!

Wonderful product
Sampled

As someone else noted, it is silky but not oil. I was really surprised by the consistency. It is a wonderful product and smells nice too!

One of my favorite samples so far!

I lovelovelove this product! I have really thick, wavy hair that has a tendency to get frizzy and poofy, especially in humid weather. This product has literally been a life saver for me this summer! I just work a few (okay, maybe several :P) pumps of this stuff into my wet hair right when I get out of the shower along with a few pumps of curl hydrating/taming creme, let it air dry and voila! No more frizziness or poofiness. Just beautiful, smooth waves/curls. I will probably use this stuff for the rest of my life.

A Must For My Dry, Processed Hair
Sampled

I have pretty dry, brittle hair as a result of years of coloring. Fortunately I discovered Kerastase products (thank you Birchbox!) and my hair has been completely transformed. I use a pump of Kerastase oils (I have all of them) when I blow dry and I have far fewer split ends and a silky, tamed look. They have really made a difference and are absolutely worth the price.

Smells great, helps with frizz
Sampled

I'm new to the whole dry oil thing for hair, but I'm so glad this was a sample in my first Birchbox! I use it on my ends when my hair is dry, and sometimes throughout all my hair (avoiding the roots) when it's towel-dried or damp. I noticed it cuts down on overall frizz, plus it smells awesome. This is a great brand.

Healthy Hair
Sampled

When I received this product in my Birchbox, I'll be honest, I was a little nervous to use it. I have very fine, thin hair that is easily weighted-down and doesn't naturally offer much volume. I was afraid this product would only furhter weight down my hair and cause it to look greasy...I was completely wrong! I used the Keratase Elixir Ultimate on my tips, then shampooed (as the directions suggest), and then styled my hair for a night out. It was like I was having the best hair day ever! My hair looked healthy and shiny (not greasy). Suprisingly, it even seemed to have a little more volume. I could see how using this product on a regular basis can improve the health of your hair.

Need to buy

At first I tried it and didn't notice a difference. The second time I used it was right after I got out of the shower and didn't have any mousse to style my hair with and I was running late. I hate my natural hair with the waves but then I put this on it and scrunched it up. It ended up making my hair look wavy, soft, and smooth. Never in my life did I think I would spend that amount of money on a hair product but now I might have to.

Keratase Elixir Ultime
Sampled

This is the best hydrating oil I've found - I have fine hair and it doesn't weigh my hair down or make it look oily. I use on day 2 after shampooing to condition ends after styling on day 1 and to restore shine.
