  • ELIXIR ULTIME THE IMPERIAL is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elixir Ultime is my go-to I've tried all of the Elixir Ultime formulas and they are all amazing, except for the Rose Millénaire it's too liquid and has an alcohol smell. Anyway, back to Thé Impérial! This one is my favorite scent, I use it to detangle my hair before styling. I have very fine, long highlighted hair and it absorbs well without weighing it down. i also put a couple of pumps in my hair before bed as an overnight treatment, leaves my hair frizz free and silky when I wake up. I've tried other brands of hair oils and none compare to Elixir Ultime it's the only one that doesn't muck up or weigh down my very fine thin hair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS STUFF!!! My hair stylist recommended this product and although the price was a shock, I made the purchase. It does an amazing job controlling and uniting my curls without weighing them down or making my hair crunchy or greasy. I use on my wet hair, 2 pumps rubbed in my palms and worked into my hair in small sections, shaping and twirling in curls. I let my hair air dry and it turns out soft, frizz-free and smells fantastic. The price is significant, but the 4.2oz bottle last for several months. I will continue to use this product until they pry it from my cold, dead hands. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I love this product. I use a small amount on damp hair and finish with a blow dryer and then I use a small amount on my ends to add shine and smoothness. You only need a tiny amount so hair doesn't look greasy. But, I have found that this absorbs really well so if you use a little too much, give it an hour and its absorbed and doesn't look greasy anymore. I also use this as a pre-treatment on dry hair, 2-3 full pumps massaged in well and put up for at least 30 minutes. I have long, fine, color treated hair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I have fine, short, color-treated hair. I use this as a final finishing product, after I have dried and styled my hair. I use 2 drops to smooth my hair all-over. The texture changes immediately, and I have body in my hair for the entire day. I can run my hands through my hair and still have style and texture. A little goes a long way, so the bottle will last forever. I hate the smell, but I tolerate it because of the amazing results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kerastase Ultime Elixir The Imperial I have been using The Imperial (PINK BOTTLE) for over 4 years now. Perfect for my dry thick course curly hair! They have one for EVERY hair type. The price is a bit shocking for my budget, but it lasts a long time. It not only makes my hair SILKY, it smells amazing! I will continue to use this product, as long as I can afford it. I strongly recommend this product to EVERYONE!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for before and after blow drying! This is an excellent serum. I used it before I blow dry my hair. A little goes a long way, too! It smells amazing and provides smooth, shiny hair. I dab a little on the ends to add shine and tame fly-away hair or frizzy hair from humidity. I bring it in my purse and I share the love in the ladies room! LOVE this stuff!!!
