The more we subject our hair to chemical based in-salon treatments, the more it becomes necessary to take care of our locks while at home. To address a growing need for premium hair care without having to take an extra trip, Kerastase created Elixer Ultime–a blend of four exotic oils that nourishes the hair right in your own shower. Although when we think oil, we immediately imagine a product that weighs hair down, Elixir Ultime does the exact opposite–it provides an emollient quality while keeping the hair light and bouncy.
Infused in Elixir Ultime are Argan Oil that works to protect, Maize Oil that provides nutrition, Pracaxi Oil which keeps the hair strands solid and resistant and Camellia Oil which delivers shine. But what distinguishes it from other products in the market is its three-way use:
1. Applied before shampooing, the oil works to rid the hair of impurities through a gentle massaging motion.
2. A second use is after shampooing but before blow-drying. Distributed on towel-dried hair, it works to help style your hair into the shape you want it to be while also speeding up the drying process—blowdrying is done in half the time!
3. Lastly, Elixir Ultime can also be used post-shampoo as a finishing gloss for shine and to tame pesky frizz.
