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?

Smells nice

I received this as a sample and wasn't too excited about it because I already use Beauty Protector Protect & Oil. I did not like the packaging for this pump, and didn't like that the oil didn't feel as thick as what I'm used to. It's hard to tell if it made much of a difference in my hair, but it smelled nice.

Best product for dry thirsty frizzy hair. I used this once it kept my hair smooth smelling amazing until the next time I washed and leaves my hands soft and smelling great after. Reminds me of my mother's hair when I was younger. Definitely a must have.

Amazing

This is the best hair oil I've tried. It's lightweight and super silky, smells amazing, and doesn't leave behind any greasiness. A little pricey, but I will consider making the investment.

Lovely

This is the product that my fancy ( aka way too expensive) hair stylist uses on my hair. I always leave with a little more swing to my step. I was happy to try at home from the birchbox sample. First time I used too much and my hair fell flat earlier than normal. After I got the hang of it, I loved my smooth shiny hair. I will purchase in the future.

Works well

I like the consistency of this product. It doesn't feel too oily and it makes my hair very soft. I also like the smell.

Love this product

This is a great product. It is very effective. However, it is a bit pricey compared to similar products.

Okay

It's your everyday serum. Nothing special but nothing bad about it either

I thought this product smelled really nice and felt nice on my hair but I already use a product similar to this and liked my old stuff better. I also feel this is better for thinner hair than my thicker hair. It smells amazing though and doesn't leave a greasy feel.

Thin Hair Beware

If you've got anything but thick, frizzy hair I don't think this is the product for you. It ended up just weighing down my fine thin hair and making it look greasy. Plus in the tester size it was hard to get it to come out and when you did it mostly just went all down you hand and everywhere you didn't intend it to. They need to make it a little bigger so it's easier to keep a hold of.

Don't get the hype

I don't quite understand the hype around this, it's light and smells good, but doesn't do much in the way of frizz fighting.
