The perfect nourishing serum/oil for dry/dull locks, Kerastase Elixir Ultime is a wonderfully lightweight blend of four wonder oils: argan, maize, camellia and pracaxi. The only downside is, it’s not so lightweight on the wallet. I first bought Kerastase Elixir Ultime on recommendation from a friend two years ago. I use it on my thick long/frizzy/uncontrollable hair and it was amazing, no more dull frizzy hair, but lovely shiny tresses instead.
L’Oreal produces Kerastase products, so if you’re after an alternative cheaper version , try its Elvive Extraordinary Oil, a fusion of six botanical lipids that works in much the same way as the Elixir. I bought Elvive Extraordinary Oil few months ago and loving it. A fantastic serum to help unruly hair, that give the same effect as Kerastase Elixir Ultime. As the price is affordable, I use this on my hair as a mask once a week. I use a generous amount, massage on to my hair and leave it for about 20 minutes before shampooing.
In my opinion you get the same end result from both products; both keep the hair shiny and frizz free all day long, condition and smooth away all the little fly-aways, without weighing down. Though they are oils, they are not greasy and all you need is a tiny amount. No more hair frizzing in hot/humid weather! You can use on wet or dry hair. Also they smell lovely. Both serums leave my hair soft, untangled with a beautiful sheen. No residue, hair feels light and bouncy.
