50 women aged between 25-49 years with all hair types. Testers chosen were specifically concerned with lack of nourishment and shine, frizz or the unruly nature of their hair.
Overall star rating during this trial:*
Kérastase Elixir Ultime is not your average leave-in treatment. It’s a hard-working, multi-tasking hair oil that can be used a number of ways. Firstly, as a pre-cleansing product that works to deeply nourish hair and remove impurities; secondly, before blow-drying to aid styling; thirdly, after blow-drying to control frizz and enhance radiance; and finally, as a style touch-up product to help ensure shine and extra protection from the elements.
One of the things the testers loved most about this product was the fact they could use it multiple ways, with many of them preferring to use it in its most unique form: as a pre-shampoo cleanser. Though the price is a little more than many testers were used to, most of them agreed the product would last so long, and the results were so good, that it was well worth investing.
The majority of Trial Teamers found their hair was left smooth and shiny after using Kérastase Elixir Ultime - in fact a whopping 98 per cent of members found their hair looked and felt better after using the oil, especially because it managed frizz so effectively. While a few members found the oil made their fine hair feel a little flat, most triallers found their hair didn’t feel at all limp or greasy during the trial. Overall, the testers enjoyed instant, nourishing results when using the product and a whopping 94 per cent of members believed that Kérastase Elixir Ultime addressed their hair concerns.
“I personally loved it for pre styling because it left my hair feeling smooth and shiny. It was also great for after styling just to tame the few flyaways and give extra shine without looking oily. The scent is quite nice and subtle and I can really see myself using this product to replace a few of the products I currently use.” – Glam fairy. Read more reviews…
“I have found that it does calm down the frizz, especially on rainy days, and prevents my hair from looking 'fluffy'. I have had a few compliments from people I know who have thought that I have coloured my hair or something because it was looking so shiny and sparkly. I am quite in love with this product and would like to thank BH for the opportunity to try it as I would have never discovered it otherwise.” – JL. Read more reviews…
“I found my hair had a sheen and shimmer that had been missing for a while. Coming into winter I find my hair can be drier than usual with all the extra heat treatment, but this product has removed that issue. Honestly, this treatment is so nourishing I found using it with every shampoo and conditioning was too much, for me this is probably a once a week treatment.” – Lorir16. Read more reviews…
“With not much oil needed, as a little goes a long way. I can see this product will last a long time, and because I found it outperformed the other hair oils I have been using, I would have to say that I would purchase the Elixir Ultime again, and also recommend it to family and friends.” – blu.

“I have ravaged my hair and I'm always looking for products to help the ends last between cuts. I love Kérastase but had often looked over this because of the price. The first time I tried it, I used it on my towel-dried hair and the next morning, frizz was at an all-time low. I actually wore my hair naturally with zero concerns. Using this on both dry and damp hair post-wash is definitely my favourite way to use it. It adds more shine and seemed to make my hair more manageable. I found it was less knotty over the course of the day.” – MissRachii. Read more reviews…
