Oils and other ingredients
Kerastase Elixir Ultime is the combination of as many as five plant oils. The most important is the oil extracted from the seeds of moringa oleifera. It is an Indian tree called a miraculous tree as it offers healing properties and provides longevity. Other oriental oils included in Elixir Ultime Replenishing Beautifying Scented Oil are camellia oil and pracaxi oil – precious oil extracted from the seeds of Amazonian tree.
Oleo-Complexe Moringa Immortel has also been enriched with two quite popular components: corn oil – typical to Elixir Ultime products, and argan oil offering large amounts of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 acids. The product is ideal for high porosity hair. Unfortunately, the complex of natural oils is disturbed by alcohol which may cause dryness and irritate the scalp.
Repairing damaged hair
The green Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo-Complexe owes its healing properties to three most important oils in the product: argan oil, pracaxi oil and moringa oil. Such a formula of Oleo-Complexe Moringa Immortel is the key to the effective conditioning of damaged hair. The oil provides repair and proper moisture as well as strengthens hair from the inside. Your strands become healthy again after a few weeks of regular usage.
Regenerated hair means more beautiful hair. If your strands are in better shape, they are more shiny, silky smooth and resilient. Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo-Complexe Moringa Immortel is an excellent styling primer. Sadly, alcohols may cause irritation and dryness if you apply it improperly or too much.
Kerastase Elixir Ultime Replenishing Beautifying Scented Oil can be applied in a few ways. The pump make every application easier. You can apply 1-2 portions before washing hair for deep nourishment. Massaging the scalp is important. You can also apply Oleo-Complexe Moringa Immortel to damp hair before blow-drying or to dry strands for better shine and fixing the hairstyle. Unfortunately, if you apply too much of the oil, it may have a harmful influence on hair and cause frizz, dryness and dullness.
For such a well-known brand and quite high price, Kerastase Elixir Ultime Replenishing Beautifying Scented Oil should be much better. The ingredients leave a lot to be desired. There are some substances which disturb the repairing action of the oil. Even the packaging isn’t worth the price. A plastic bottle with a green pump is typical to Kerastase Elixir Ultime products but it definitely doesn’t look luxurious. The fragrance isn’t impressive as well. It smells of alcohol.
What are the disadvantages of the product?
- quite high price which is inadequate to the quality of the product
- alcohols disturb the action
- may cause dryness, irritation or frizz
- inelegant, plastic packaging
- unpleasant fragrance
