Kérastase Elixir Ultime - Prime

It took us a while to hop on the hair oil bandwagon, but boy were we missing out. This lightweight elixir is fortified with a unique combo of four essential oils to leave strands super shiny and manageable—whether your hair is curly, straight, or in between. Plus, we can use it as a pre-shampoo treatment or leave-in conditioner. What more can a girl ask for?

not bad

Usually use another brand of hair oil, but was happy to get the sample because I'd wanted to try Kerastase products for a while. On its own pre-blow dry I didn't notice much difference from other oils/serums. However, when added to a little Kerastase Nectar Thermique, left my hair noticeably silky. The best part of this combo, though, is that it's relatively lightweight and doesn't seem to attract dirt as quickly as other products (a big deal when you only shampoo a couple times a week). I also use a little bit as a smoother after the flat iron but as another reviewer has mentioned, it doesn't help with static/flyaways.

Great except for the smell
Sampled

I really wanted to love this. It works well on my hair and smells great coming out of the bottle. Unfortunately, once it's in my hair the smell morphs into a weird burnt hair sort of smell. Maybe it's just me?

Smells like chemicals
Sampled

The smell is horrendous! It smelled like I had burnt my hair when I hadn't even blow dried that day. It's a cheap repackaged product, stay away!

Morrocon Oil'esque
Sampled

I had been needing to buy a new oil for my hair, and this product came in the Box, so I used it. I used it in conjunction with the Kerastase Nectar Thermique to protect my hair while straightening my hair. I loved the texture of my hair after I used it. I think that it really helped in keeping the fly-aways away.

Not Sure
Sampled

I liked this product but I'm not sure it is a product that I would use regularly. I would definitely like to try other hair oils to see which is best. I did like the texture, I did not find it too greasy.

great brand

yes, it is expensive, but keresase always tends to deliver knock-out products. i use this on dry hair / post-blow dry and not when wet and it tames fly-aways. though i have long hair, it isn't terribly thick and curly, so a pump or two goes a really long way. me likey.
