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?

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.

Awesome at first, but maybe my hair got trained
Purchased

Kerastase products are a splurgy luxury, so I was excited when I had enough Birchbox points to order a free one after trying my sample. At first, my hair felt silky when I used it on dry hair after styling, but the magic wore off. Maybe my hair got to accustomed to it? I can't use it on wet hair or it's greasy. I do like it as a second-day-hair refresher, but the smell isn't amazing. All in all, I'm just not sure what changes I'm supposed to see because there's not much happening.

Didn't do much for my hair

I have thin hair and I didn't think it did much for it?

Love, love, love!

This product really makes my hair soft and shiny - I love it. But, I use a similar product from Aveda which costs a little less, so I probably won't buy it for now.

Too small
Sampled

I haven't used this product yet, because until just a minute ago, I had no idea what it was! The packaging is way too small to even discern what type of product it is!

Soft but Staticy
Sampled

I thought this product was pretty great- it made my hair super soft and shiny, I couldn't stop running my fingers through it! The only thing I noticed was that after a few hours I seemed to lose my normal volume and then the next day my hair was super static-y. I'm not sure if that had something to do with the cold/dry weather but I never have that problem so I assume it has something to do with this product.
