Hope this helps for people who aren't getting the best out of this product. I use this oil as a sealant. After washing and conditioning I towel dry my hair and then spray it with a moisture spray (joico moisture spray... Blue bottle). Then I use this oil after to lock in the moisture spray and it works so much better :) read somewhere that oils should be used as sealants and I've not looked back. Great stuff and smells beautiful :)

I use this product as a pre-shampoo conditioner. It lightly coats my fried ends, and protects them from the shampoo I must use for my oil producing (I can make OPEC jealous) scalp. It does a good job. But I'm sure there are other less expensive alternatives available that will work just as well. I will say that I received a generous trial bottle (1.7 oz) from someplace this past Christmas season, so I didn't actually purchase this product.

Elixir Ultime doesn't work as an out-of-the-shower oil for me...for that, I need to use that goopy argan oil from One n' Only: it does a better job at making my hair *look* healthy and producing less frizz on wet hair (I think I need something super heavy to help my frizzy, fine ends look like they have more heft and help weigh them down). Two, full pumps of Elixir Ultime on my wet ends really doesn't do anything but smell nice and act as a really good detangler...there's absolutely no improvement in my matte, frizzy texture however. This is disappointing to me, hence the four, instead of five rating.

When I *love* to use Elixir Ultime is on not-so-fresh hair. I like using it at night, going into second or third day hair to help keep my ends in order as I sleep, in the morning of no-shampoo days...I even like carrying around a little vial of it in my bag to help my hair along on windy NYC days. It helps soften and give my hair a little sheen for an hour or so, and it also seems to help my hair create a nice, piecey look (weird?) while keeping the ends feeling soft and healthy.

I can't overdo application (maybe because my hair is so frizzy/damaged?)...it's like my hair drinks this stuff, I don't know, but there's no oily look in my ends if I've applied what I think might be too much, and it also doesn't weigh my hair down. When I can't get the coating off my hands...that's when I stop applying it.

I consider this a luxury product that I love having, and even though I *could* get by without it, I'd rather not.

I have fine but lots of it black tinted hair.
I want my hair to feel weightless , not flat.
My hair is dry but I get oily roots . So I wanted a treatment that wou
Don't make it greasy,
I applied 1 pump full mainly on the ends and slightly everywhere else .
It did feel greasy , and I dreaded drying my hair.

I shouldn't have worried at all. My hair felt feather light soft clean and super shiny!
No greasiness at all.
Will defiantly buy again!

Very good silicone-based hair serum, but there are many cheaper options out there. I like this because it adds shine, smoothness, manageability and doesn't weigh my hair down. Provides heat protection as well. It really is a good product but I also like CHI's Silk Infusion and Paul Mitchell's Super-Skinny Serum. And those are both much more affordable than Kerastase.

For reference my hair is thick, dry, wavy-texture, color-treated, and I heat-style it regularly. So it's important that I take care of it with the right products. I always use some type of leave-in before blow drying, and this one works great for me. But I don't have to spend this kind of money to get these results, so I won't buy this one again.

This product is a bit expensive but it makes my hair super soft and silky with a very slight coconut smell. I apply it after showering and works well with either air-drying or using a hair dryer. I only use a drop each time so one bottle will last for more than a year. If you use more than that, it will weigh your hair down and make it greasy. It works for me because it takes care of the frizz and I love the smell.

Way too expensive to be so mediocre. I have 100: Remy extensions in my hair and was looking for a product to give my hair more "slip through the fingers" so I decided to try a top of the line product. While it does leave it nice feeling my hair still tangles and gets dry. It give a pretty polish and shine, but that sad thing is that the L'Oreal version of this works way better and is maybe a eight bucks. This product is almost marketed as a miracle mutiuse product, but was really not worth the money.

This is a light product that really make my hair soft and shiny. I think it's an expensive product but it's worth the price if you need a pick me up or a little more to your hair for an event or a night out, after styling. I would not use that everyday as it's expensive, but once in a while for a little +++ for an event it's perfect :)

This stuff is just great. I have curly and dry hair, which gets however quite heavy on the roots sometimes. This makes my hair silky and shiny, yet still very light.

Despite giving it 4 lippies, I wouldn't buy this oil again. It's a really good hair oil and it makes my hair super soft, but it contains silicones, which I try to avoid in hair products. At the moment, I�m buying pure argan oil instead, which is so much better for the hair and cheaper. I don't want to waste the oil though, so I use it as a hair treatment, either before or after washing my hair.
