Kerastase Elixir K Ultime Review
lady gaga? no it's just me on a bad hair day
I have been applying hair oils before I blow dry my hair, it helps to smoothen the frizz and untangle hair. I don't want to lose anymore hair during brushing =_= so this is a precaution. The best thing about what hair oils do is gives added sleek and shiny finish look. The latest hair oil I've on my drawer top now is from Kerastase called the KÉRASTASE ELIXIR ULTIME. This hair
four precious nourishing oils for your hair
ELIXIR ULTIME is a versatile beautifying oil with the enchanting Oléo-Complexe Technology of four precious oils - Argan Oil, Maize Oil, Pracaxi Oil and Camellia Oil. Results? hair is nourished, protected and enhances, leaving it feeling light, soft and supple with incredible shine. Work 1 - 2 pumps throughout the lengths of the hair before shampooing or as a leave-in-treatment on clean, towel-dried hair.
It can be use in many different ways to experience amazing results. Think olive oil? which can be use moisturized, remove make up, or used for cooking (but in this case, please don't use Elixir Ultime to do cooking). For me, I use it as a pre blow dry step so that it conditions and protects my hair from the harsh blow drying heat. I apply it to mid length to the ends of my hair since it's the driest part of my hair that needs nourishment. It also helps to prevent split ends winks*.

I love the scent of the precious oils, I am a fan of oils.
testing: after blow drying then using one pump to smoothen hair
This product can also be used to deep condition your hair to control dry wild hair like mine. It gives that extra moisture control during the day. If you plan to leave it overnight, it works even better! like sleeping mask that gives you deep hydration while you snooze, you get deep hydration for softer, smoother, revitalized hair the next morning. The amount you use determines how hydrated your hair will be, so if you over-do it, just wash your hair if it's too oily and you'll still get soft and shiny hair.
why use Elixir Ultime? (ps this is my hair)
For RM138 it's a splurge on a luxurious elixir for my hair. It smells delicious and on first try, it's give an instant shine and smoothing effect. Colorless, lightweight oil, it doesn't weight my hair down like some products do and it does not give residues of any kind after a few hours. Many would ask, is it oily? well definitely if you apply too much. I use one pump on my palm, let my body heat warm it up a bit and then apply to my hair (avoiding hair roots). It's not greasy like a film like layer, but definitely silky to your touch. I haven't try hot oil method yet, it will probably be great that way too. Love this elixir, beats any hair balm or hair serum that I have used so far, especially since I can use it in so many ways!
My use it for ideas:
Hair and scalp massage before shampoo
Leave in conditioner (think of it as hair sleeping mask)
Instant shine and smooth
Protection for blow-dry
Detangling after towel dry hair
and lots more... maybe you can give a rich hair massage for your husband/bf.
Tames frizzy hair
Protects from blow drying heat
Leave in treatment for next morning softness
Nourish your hair ends
When used as a leave in conditioner, it does get on my pillow so I advise to put a dry towel over your pillow to prevent that.
Since it's made of oils, do not be too generous with the amount used! will get oily (just wash your hair).
Price is on the luxury side but think of the precious oils used. They ain't cheap too in the market.
Perfect for all hair types. You can get this from exclusive Kerastase consultant salons. The limited edition version (like mine) is price at RM138. The Exlixir Ultime, is Kerastase's number one best seller.
