Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well. Smells horrid. My stylist suggested this for my over-processed hair. It works well at smoothing and makes my hair soft. However, I can't get past the smell. It's awful. It's too overpowering and just downright stinky. I wish the haircare industry would understand that some of us, who are sensitive to fragrances, would like to enjoy the benefits of good products as well.

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 Love this! A little goes a long way! I'm surprised that I love this oil so much! My stylist gave me a sample of this but warned me that it may be too heavy for my hair. My hair is about waist length and blonde so I think maybe she was nervous that if I got heavy handed near the roots I'd look like a grease bomb. With this in mind, I cracked open that sample and spread less than a dime size between my hands. This was more than enough to coat the lengths of my towel dried hair. It detangled my mess easily and added great shine and softness to my hair once dried. A little really goes a long way! That little sample has lasted me over 2 weeks so far, so a bottle would last me forever and take care of my long locks for a while! I'll be buying this when I run out for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Except from smell Only 4 stars because of smell. Not really pleasant. Other than that, I like it a lot. Not too greasy and thick. Just enough for my thin fine hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much keratin I have been using it for two months now regularly. Over time i have noticed it's making my hair dry every time I apply it. Does anyone know if it's got keratin/protein in it? I think my hair is having protein over dose by using it. Kerastase experts, please let me know if it does have keratin in it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disapointed I had SUCH HIGH hopes for this product line, and this elixir was awful. I didn't feel a difference other then my hair feeling slightly heavier. Maybe in the summer i would see a better result, but dont love the product enough to gamble not being able to return it. Unfortunately after this purchase, I'm unsure if i want to stay with the brand or look for another. Nice, but definitely NOT worth the price and i will be returning. I had better luck with the samples i received in my ipsy bag ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hair Oil This is the best hair oil, shine, conditioner or primer thing that I have ever used. I also I have used products from Walgreens. Their versions are too thick and don't soak INTO your hair. The main reason Kerastase is an unbeatable product is that it doesn't sit on top of your hair, it soaks into your hair leaving it feel silky. Some of the other products get sticky when left in your hair. I'm serious when I say that the three other products I've used sit on top of the hair and have a weird texture after a few hours. They get kind of sticky. I only used them because I was out of Kerastase and they were cheap. I have long dark brown hair. I had someone in a garage bleach my hair. Then what really damaged my hair was using a 'wet to dry straightener' some months later. The straightener eventually fried my hair leading to all sorts of breakage and split ends which is unusual for my hair. It was hard to brush my hair without my hairs snapping in the middle. Kerastase let me comb my hair easily. It really does sort out all of the knots magically. The comb/brush just glides right on through. I don't know how to explain. Kerastase smells amazing also. The bottle lasts quite awhile. You only need to rub one pump between your palms to apply it to the ends and middle section of your hair for it to work. I would recommend this to anyone wanting silkier, shinier and weightless hair.
