Update: this shampoo is something special ..it is a gem if you have a combination hair type. Every one with this type of hair will understand how it is hard to find a balancing shampoo that cleans your scaple very well and yet doesnt dry out your hair ends or cause any irritation.Nothing special about it. But still it is a high quality shampoo. What I like about it is that it is silicon free and it smells really nice (Dior addict). It does clean the scalp without drying out my hair.

I love the smell of this shampoo and the texture of my hair after using it. It gives shine and makes my hair silky and healthy.

PROS - the amazing smell,hair is soft and sliky CONS - I was expecting so much more from a shampoo that cost this much.I have mid-back lenght hair and need to use so much product to "produce" a foam.And I'm not using dry shampoo or have greasy hair.I haven't notice any improvement in overall health of the hair or having less split ends.I'll rather invest in a good hair treatment/oil/mask than buy this ever again.So expensive,I would need to buy 2 or even 3 bottles of this a month,and it would be ok if it worked so I would be saving money on other hair products,but sadly no.

This is a review for the whole line of elixer ultime including this shampoo, as well as the oil and the intialiste scalp treatment. I hope this helps someone who has struggled their whole life how I have to find the perfect system for my fine straight hair. I have fine texture hair with a medium amount of hair that is STRAIGHT with dry ends and my roots get oily with build up. I constantly struggle with every shampoo giving me build up all the time, and my roots get oily and because my hair is on the thin side and straight. But, I absolutely love this leave in serum and the scalp leave in Initialiste, in addition with kerastase elixir ultime shampoo and matching conditioning mask. I have spent thousands on every shampoo in the world trying to find one that works. I have used the cheapest and the most expensive brands. Kerastase was something I tried years ago, but never really thought it was worth the money because it would still give me a slight build up and weigh my hair down no matter which one of them I used. HOWEVER, their elixir ultime shampoo and mask are AMAZING. I know its scary because it says OIL shampoo, but I cant explain it, my hair is shiney and soft and easy to style. I love this stuff. I also use the elixir ultime oil drops leave in and I love it too. In addition with this serum it is amazing!! I love all these products. I just have to rave about it because if you are like me and constantly in search for the right shampoo, I think you may like this line. Also, I use LUSH big sea salt shampoo once a week to remove build up. It is amazing in combination with the kerastase.

The smell of this shampoo is amazing! I am obsessed with the scent, so luxurious for a shampoo & more like a perfume. You only need a small amount, the size of a 1p coin. This leaves my hair feeling nourished and supple. I don't use too much heat on my hair but I imagine if you abuse your hair this would be the perfect shampoo for you to try and nurse it back to health. I also have the matching mask which also has the amazing scent which lingers for a few hours. I find myself smelling my hair during the day because it's so yummy. I have had my bottle for 5 weeks now and still have a quarter left.

I love this shampoo! The fragrance is different, multi-layered and reminds me of Shiseido's Feminite du Bois fragrance. Elixir Ultime leaves my hair soft, shiny and full and I always receive compliments on how it looks.

I got this in the saloon size (1000ml) after much recommendation. It is formulated in a nice scent that reminds me of going for a holiday in the tropics (coconuts perhaps)? Its transparent formulation lathers pretty well upon contact with water and does not seem to iritate the scalp (I noticed that my scalp is less oily-harsh shampoos tend to aggravate the scalp hence more oil produced) I cannot testify that it repairs the hair but it certainly did not leave it drier. For the price i'm unsure if the quality justifies it-i'd like to think that there are other similar shampoos at a fraction of the price !

So I have been um-ing and ah-ing about this product for about 1 month reading every possible review out there, as I was running low on my kerastase colour riche, and needed a change as my hair was getting used to that product. My hair is chocolate coloured, long to about mid back, and quite healthy with the usual slightly dry ends from heat styling, which gets oily roots quite fast so need to wash every second day, as this shampoo is an oil based shampoo I was a little hesitant even though its stated for all types of hair. I decided to go for it as I have 4 sisters and figured if i didn't like it one of them would, and I bought the salon size 1L bottle partnered with the matching masque for a good price on eBay. Best decision I've made! I have been using kerastase for about 20 years as mum always had it and this has by far done the most for my hair, I saw results after the first wash but was still reserved until after a few washes to realize the product is consistent with the results. My hair is super soft and so shiny! I generally blow dry my hair after washing and find that the next day it is so relaxed there is no need for more heat styling. My scalp is nourished and has that 'squeaky' clean feeling and does not leave that 'product build up' feel in the hair. It smells lovely and I am definitely not hesitant in recommending this product! All you girls with oily roots- dont be afraid of this oil shampoo you will be pleasantly surprised!and married up with the masque... Ah-mazing! Any doubts go grab a sample from your local kerastase salon :)

I was introduced to the Elixir Ultime line through the leave-in oil. Since I loved the smell of the oil, I thought I would try the shampoo. The packaging is gorgeous, and I love the luxuriousness of the gold cap and bottle. The shampoo has a more delicate fragrance than the oil. The product cleanses well, but I've noticed it has a tendency to leave my hair more tangled than my previous shampoo (Klorane Magnolia), which is curious considering it is an oil shampoo. I do follow with the Lait Vital conditioner (which I love), which takes care of the tangling, but while shampooing I have learned I have to slowly massage the product through the hair, as opposed to building up lather in the traditional way with active fingers. This reduces tangling, but adds to wash time. However, since my curly hair tends to tangle in the best of circumstances, I'm not sure this shampoo is right for me.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
