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 3 out of 5 by from Provides silkiness, but little frizz control I've been using this product for a solid six months now. I do notice how it gives my hair a silky feel. It smells nice. However, I do not notice it gives me the lush, thick shine I would like. To give an example of the appearance and I texture I am hoping for, would be Kate Middleton. Perhaps, it is the personal hair stylist doing her hair for every public event? Versus hair home done by me. But you would think just once over the course of these six months I would have that sleek look. That being said, I will continue to use this product because it works better than most others. I do love many of Kerastase products and will continue to order them.

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 Must have!!!!!!!! Ever since I began using this I can't go a day without using it. Yes I even tried to use it to see if I can see a difference and I did. It will make your hair very shiny, soft, manageable and healthy. I have dry course hair and since I have been in kerasrase I can't use anything else. I understand it's expensive and everything I buy only lasts a month and end up investing 300 a month on the best hair products. But you pay for what you get. If you start ordering with kerasrase website you will get secret emails of happy hour which means free samples good size samples and once in a while 20% off. Trust me try this product you will not be dissapointed..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OBSESSED! The holy grail of oils! I can't get enough of this stuff! I've tried other oils such as moroccanoil and super skinny from Paul Mitchell and I can honestly say nothing compares to elixir ultime! I'm a hairstylist myself and I will buy this stuff full price that's how much I love it. It smells AMAZING, it doesn't weigh the hair down, no matter how much I seem to use even with my thin hair. I see a drastic difference from the shine and softness and when I blowdry, I get zero tangles. My boyfriend uses it too on his hair and beard and when he doesn't use it hes always saying he wish he had! I cant recommend it enough, you NEED this oil in your life!

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
