REVIEW Kerastase Elixir Ultime Does it leave hair glossier and hair colour more intense?

Achieving Glossier hair and richer hair colour made easy with the help of nourishing oils

KÉRASTASE Elixir Ultime range comprising a cleansing oil shampoo and beautifying oil masque, gently cleanses and treats dry hair with four types of hair repairing and nourishing oils.
How does it work?
The nourishing oils in the range include pracaxi oil, argan oil, maize oil and camellia oil, which strengthen damaged hair, give shine to coloured hair and protect it from external aggressions. One thing that will set every woman’s mind at rest is that the nourishing oil mask will not straighten curls or fade colour, but will smooth out frizz and enhance shine, in both curls and straight hair, however, the rebounded or straightened hair have an enhanced sleek and smooth finish.
Pracaxi OilEmollient contents and active antioxidants impart shine to hair as it nourishes and conditions.
Argan OilThis rare oil is prized for its regenerative properties, which restores vibrancy and strength to hair.
Maize OilRich vitamins A, E and omega 6 content protect and enhance hair shine and suppleness.
Camellia OilThis fragrant oil is the most luxurious oil rich in vitamin F, fatty acids, omega 3 and 6. It smoothens hair fibre and therefore also leaves hair kink free.
Kérastase Elixir Ultime Cleansing Oil Shampoo, $39
In addition to the precious oils, this shampoo is free of silicon, paraben and phthalate, which are said to be harmful to hair. Dirt is also attracted to oils, which enhances cleansing.

Other ingredients in this rich mask include:
Moisturising serum 5% & Lipidic Compounds 10%
Nourish and soften hair and without weighing it down.
TIP DIY Home Hair Spa
No time to visit the hair salon for a pampering hair spa? You can still get hair smoother and glossier at home.
  • Shampoo with Elixir Ultime Cleansing Oil Shampoo to remove excess scalp oil and dirt.
  • Then nourish hair with a hair mask. Blend a nourishing mask by mixing a dose of Elixir Ultime Grands Crus oil and the original Elixir Ultime with Elixir Ultime Beautifying Oil Masque.
  • Squeeze out excess water from hair after shampoo and smooth this nourishing blend onto hair. Work into the length of your hair (from midlength down especially if you have oily scalp), then bun up hair and wrap with a towel.
  • In 20 minutes, remove towel and massage mask into hair before emulsifying with some water and massaging into hair again before washing off and towel dry as usual.
  • Continue with your regular hair care and blow dry.
Your hair colour will be richer than glossier than before. If all the blending is too tedious for you, use Elixir Ultime Beautifying Oil Masque straight from the tub like I did. Check out the visuals of my hair after my home hair spa with Kérastase Elixir Ultime range.
