Kérastase - Elixir Ultime

Haircare is a subject where I need to talk more about. Especially because I almost have 1 meter of hair! So today: haircare. More specifically: the Kérastase Elixir Ultime line.

To keep my hair healthy I like to switch between drugstore and high-end brands. I made some bad choices in the past involving my hair (straightening too hot, no masks,...) because I simply didn't knew how to take care of it. I always had split ends and it just broke off. Now my hair is a bit thinner because of that. But since I found new products, started using masks and really took care of my hair it looks so much better, especially the split ends are all gone now!

The Kérastase Elixir Ultime line was launched in 2010. And now 5 years later it's renewed with new luxurious packagings and some new products!

The Elixir Ultime oil has a brand-new glass (and heavy!) bottle. This does gives it that extra touch, that feeling of luxuriousness. The original oil contains oleo-complex and 4 different oils: corn germ oil, argan oil and camelia oil.

It promises the following:
- 71% more shine
- Thermic protection till 230°C
- 24 hour protection against moisture
- Protects dry hair and reduces split ends
- The hair straightens easier and it dries more quickly

It does give a lot more shine when I use it and when I use it, I spray it on wet hair. Then I have all the advantages of the oil: straightens easier when I blow dry it and it dries more quickly. It also protects against the heat of the blowdryer. 

New is the Elixir Ultime Fondant, it's an oil-based conditioner and I really love this one. It promises to detangle the hair easier and it does. If I use this one, I can just comb straight through my hair. But you have to be careful, I used too much on time and my hair was all frizzy afterwards. So the dose is very important because of the oily formula. 

Now I use it around 3 times a month to give my hair a boost. 

Kérastase - Elixir Ultime Huile Originale (€37,70)
Kérastase - Elixir Ultime Fondant (€37,70)

The Elixir Ultime Fondant is so good to use now and then and it perfectly detangles my hair. I really want to try the mask too, very curious if that one would work just as well.

As I said in my previous Caudalie blogpost, I'm not the biggest oil fan. So I only use this occasionally. This is something I will use when I have to go to a special event for example.

Have you ever tried anything from Kérastase? Do you use any hair oils?

Love, Rani


  1. It looks so luxurious! I really love these packagings and it sounds like a great product.

  2. It looks so great!!


  3. Looks amazing. I have heard of this line but haven't tried it. I am always on the hunt for great hair hair since I have dry hair from hair color. Great review. And gorgeous photos!!

  4. Kérastase is echt een topper op gebied van haarproducten. Ik gebruik hun producten al zeer lang en ben eigenlijk nog nooit teleurgesteld. Ik gebruik ook regelmatig olie, soms een beetje op mijn droge punten, soms in mijn natte haar, het hangt er een beetje van af. Wel nooit te veel, want ik heb ook fijn haar en ik probeer het een beetje in balans te houden :-)
