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?

Light but full effect
Sampled

This serum had a light but overall full effect on my hair. It was not greasy or heavy. It left a sweet light scent that lasted throughout the day.

Great for dry curly hair
Sampled

I used this on my husband and daughter who have thick curly hair. It made the curls soft and held together with no stiffness or frizz. Very nice results.

Smoothing
Sampled

This is great for smoothing out the frizzies, the unrulies, and the just plain dry haystack looking hair. I like to put it on before blow drying. A little goes a long way. The only thing I don't like is that after you smooth it in, you really have to wash your hands or they will be all slickery.

Great Sample
Sampled

I've been kind of spectacle about hair serums, because I have pretty oily hair (well roots anyway). But I loved this, great smell and texture, two spritz was sufficient to cover all my relatively long hair. The result was a very pleasant smell, and very very soft and manageable hair. Overall, great product.

Works great
Sampled

I have long thick hair; however, my hair is fine and frizzy. This product works great, but I'm not a huge fan of the perfume smell. It's a strong smell that lingers in my hair. I work as a nurse at the hospital and perfumes are something we have to be careful with.

great for my super dry hair
Sampled

so far I've been using it post shower on wet hair. I haven't tried it on dry hair yet wondering if it will be good for those post dryer frizzes. But it is great as a conditioner on wet hair esp for my hair which is very dry

I was skeptical but wow!
Sampled

I was skeptical of using an oil on my hair, but just a couple little drops went a long way. I've used it as a pre-blowdry treatment and it leaves my hair soft and glossy. I'm impressed, but I don't think it is worth the high price.

Good oil, not worth the price
Sampled

Kerastase makes great products and this is no exception, but it is very similar to other hair oils at a much higher price tag. It does smell amazing though!

Liked it
Sampled

I really like this product, I enjoy this formula more than a typical hair oil. I tried it as a pre-shampoo treatment and I'm not sure it did anything, but I love the results on dry hair.

Good

This product is good, not great. I wanted the product to absorb a bit more and it left my hair a bit greasy.
