Revitalize parched strands and frayed split ends with Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique - Protect.

Kérastase

Birchbox Breakdown

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?

How it Works

A hair care all-star, this elixir nourishes our locks with a blend of antioxidant-rich camellia, argan, maize, and pracaxi oils. The pump dispenser allows for mess-proof applications, and we love how the weightless formula isn’t sticky.

How to Use

Smooth one to two pumps into damp hair before shampooing or blow drying. Alternately, work through clean, dry hair as a leave-in treatment.

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Zea Mays / Corn Germ Oil, Argania Spinosa Oil / Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Camellia Kissi / Camellia Kissi Seed Oil, Pentaclethra Macroloba Oil / Pentaclethra Macroloba Seed Oil, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene, Coumarine, Benzyl Alcohol, Parfum / Fragrance.

Smooth Shiny Hair
Sampled

Love this oil. It smells so nice, and decreases the frizz of my hair. I find I can skip the straightener after using this because my hair isn't poofy and gross.

Pricey, but works well
Sampled

I'm not sure I'd be able to shell out the money for a full-sized version of this product, but the sample I received left my hair shiny and soft. It also smells amazing! I'm no stranger to moisturizing my hair with oils, and this one fits the bill, but may not be worth the cost.

Great hair product!

This elixir made my hair really smooth and brought back some gloss that the harsh winter has taken away. It smelled great and didn't feel too heavy in my hair. Love the product, I just wish there was more!

Love this!

I was initially skeptical about using hair oil on my already oily hair, but this product changed my mind. It made my hair smoother, less tangled and easier to style. If I didn't already have something similar to this but in a creme form, I'd buy this!

EVERTHING IS AWESOME
Sampled

Smell, texture, packaging, overall quality-I loved this product. I have very fine hair so I am cautious about oil-based products but this was light and left my hair shiny and beautiful. It smells like one of my favorite perfumes-clean smelling but with something else...I loved this product

Excellent for my frizzy/curly hair
Purchased

Moroccan oil changed my life (really) when it came to managing my long, curly, frizzy hair, and I had been a loyal customer for years.

Until this.

The Elixir Ultime conditions and tames my hair even better than the Moroccan oil. My hair isn't as weighed down nor is it as greasy. This is my favorite product to apply when I'm air-drying my hair AND to revitalize my curls the next day.

Great Product

This product is a miracle serum! I am really wanting to purchase it but the cost is a little higher than I would like. Thinking it might be worth it!

Great scent, adds shine and control
Sampled

This is a terrific product for the curly/way/dry hair. I used it to rein in dry hair after work and before going out, and it really does the job. It's light, smells fresh, and adds shine and definition to those ends and the top of the head which can frizz up. Very nice product. The luxurious scent and lightness of the oil are what set it apart from other oils.
