Kérastase Elixir Ultime Nourishing Hair Oil

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 messproof applications, and we love that it never feels sticky. In addition to applying it as a prestyling helper, it can also be used to smooth flyaways when you're done or add luster whenever you need a touchup.

so so

I love hair oils and I was expecting to love this esp. as it seems to be geared to thick hair. Sample size was so so small (the sample size I rec'd from a different brand was drastically more generous). It took me 10 minute to get a single drop from the vial, so I was kind of annoyed! I didn't really notice much of a scent. I used prior to blow drying and my hair was very soft - maybe softer than with oil I use now. I wish it was a better size sample so I could try it more than once but since I don't have more, I have to say that I like what I already use better

Hair Feels Great
Sampled

After washing my hair and putting this is my hair, it was very smooth. I instantly thought my hair felt so much better than before. I don't usually use a hair oil, but this may have helped change my mind!

Great product

I have tried out many hair products in my lifetime, but I was extremely impressed with this one. First of all, the smell is great, it makes my hair smell fresh for days. You don't have to use much product for each use, so that sample is lasting me a very long time. My hair has a great shine to it once it dries without being greasy. I will be buying the full size.

Good
Sampled

Using this product is good just requires more of the product for longer hair. It seems to be better to be used post shower and I am able to get it through my hair better.

Amazing product

If you can get past the smell, this product is amazing for the hair. It works well as a leave in conditioner and does wonders for my hair to tame any frizz or flyaways. It also moisturizes the hair so it looks healthier when it is secretly damaged. This product almost styles my hair itself.

Great product

When I first got this product, I was excited to finally have the opportunity to try a product with these ingredients, mainly cause I was too scared to spend the money on something I don't have any experience using!

But this definitely one of my new favorite products! It doesn't leave hair greasy or oily, even when you put the product on dry hair! I usually put it in when my hair is damp though to let air dry for next day to straighten, or right before I blow dry it. It leaves hair without frizz OR static and soft and weightless.

You should try this product ASAP!

LOVE
Sampled

I completely love this product. My favorite way to use it is before washing my hair. It says to get your hair damp first, apply the oil, rinse, & then shampoo as usual. I tend to put it on dry hair & rinse then shampoo. It makes my hair super soft and silky. I also use it as a finisher on dry hair if I'm having frizz. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Kerastase Elixir

This product has an AMAZING smell. It feels very lightweight and makes hair very soft and manageable. I like that it can be used pre or post shower as needed. I am definitely considering purchasing the full size.
