  • ELIXIR ULTIME ORIGINAL OIL is rated 4.8194 out of 5 by 227.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beach Hair Living at the beach, I'm faced with wind, salt and lots of sun. I spend a significant amount of time outside in these conditions. My hair, in addition to be color treated, requires a lot of attention to keep it looking lush. Kerastase products allow my hair to keep looking it's best! I use several of the products, most recently the Elixir. It's an amazing product that keeps my dry and frizzy hair staying smooth. I have been using Kerastase's products for years after switching salon's. My salon continues to use their products too. If you have dry, curly, processed hair, Kerastase has the products to keep your hair looking youthful!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best product ever! I got this as a gift because I told my friend I love kerastase. I was thrilled from my very first use. I have very blond bleached hair that needs a lot of maintenance, this is fantastic. I mix with the ultime mask and about 4 drops of the luscious smelling oil. It is luxurious and leaves my hair silky! I use a couple drops before blow drying along with my other kerastase heat protectant. Mix together throughout mid hair and light on the roots. Looks smooth, feels soft and smells so delicious. I put another drop or two as a touch up for added shine and it soaks it up. You will be happy if you have dry hair, or damage it's a must have!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from holy grail multi-tasker This original elixir is my multi-tasking, can't live without it, holy grail of a styling product. The texture and consistency is perfect- neither greasy nor heavy. It can be applied at any stage of my haircare routine (pre-shampoo, pre-blow dry, pre-air dry, during styling / finishing, etc.). A lot of serums just coat the hair shaft, but this one seems to penetrate it. My naturally curly, dry, and damaged hair really soaks it up without ever looking or feeling dirty. I have sensitive acne-prone skin too and haven't had any issues with breakouts. I will continue to repurchase Elixir Ultime and highly recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never leave home without it I cannot say enough about this amazing potion! I have a bottle at home, one that I keep in my purse and one at work!!! I call it liquid magic and it truly is magical. I use it on wet hair..I'll use it before drying or straightening..ill use it to gloss up and perfectly polish the finished look and quite possibly my favorite is to apply a tiny bit in my palms and lightly calm curled hair. I love a beach wave but hate the look of a "curled" curl so this is perfect for giving me that "natural" look! Not to mention the smell is luxurious and intoxicating...it's a rich and inviting scent that I can't get enough of! If I were stranded and could only have one beauty item, this is the one!!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from shiny and softer hair When I visited the Aveda salon near me they sold kerastase products there and I couldn't imagine how it would work any different than others. After getting my hair done the lady had used her favorites on me including this oil and the chrima riche line to show me why she loves them. Since then, its a must have. Makes my hair so soft and great to use prior to styling. It made the heat tool glide through my hair which has helped make it healthier. I really recommend the product. Only problem I had was getting used to how much to use since I have fine hair. After that though, its worked very well

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid GOLD! This is a MUST HAVE product! I have been using for years now. I am guaranteed to get compliments on my hair when I use this! I have a LOT of "fine" hair. It's not too straight to look sleek and not to curly to look great on it's own. When I want it straight this gives me the perfect, sleek look. When I curl my hair it adds a shine and anti-frizz that make my hair look "bombshell'! I will NOT travel without this product! Something about 'other' climates makes my hair unruly and this is the only surefire way I prevent "island hair" for humid vacations or flat, dry looking hair in dry climates! You won't be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly versatile product! I began using Keratase products after my hair began growing back after cancer treatment and the Elixir Ultime has become my all time favorite smoothing, sealing and styling product! This gem of a product can be used before you shampoo for pre conditioning, before you blow dry or flat iron your hair for the ultimate in smoothness or after you have heat styled it and need to seal it. It works its magic and goes on light, is wonderfully fragrant and is somewhat of a miracle product for the hair! It is a must have and you only need a little but you will never have a bad hair day with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever I decided to grow my hair out after a very bad haircut and found that once it reached the middle of my back, the ends were getting very dry. Even regular trimming would not alleviate this...until Elixir Ultime. I put it on after I shampoo (before blow dry) and after blow dry on the ends and my hair is the shiniest and healthiest it has ever been. Strangers ask me how I get it so shiny and it is all the Elixir! I was worried it would make my hair greasy but it is just shine, shine, shine! I would have the product over any other and it is most definitely worth the price!
