I tend to stay away from most styling products. They weigh my hair down, make it greasy and unmanageable, and generally tend to make my life miserable until I wash all evidence of them down the drain. Not so with Kérastase Elixir Ultime. This unsuspecting serum has miraculously changed my hair life for the better -- and I'm now singing its praises from the rooftops!
Elixir Ultime contains a cocktail of emollient and antioxidant active ingredients (using the brand's Oléo-Complexe Technology with Maize Oil from Central America) that promote shine, suppleness and cellular renewal. It nourishes and conditions the hair with Pracaxi Oil, smooths the fibers with Camellia Oil harvested from Asia, and both restores strength to the hair and protects it from external aggressors with Argan Oil from North Africa.
I've found that using two pumps on damp hair before blowdrying results in shiny, silky strands that last for days on end with absolutely no greasy residue. It's a true miracle!
Kérastase Elixir Ultime retails for $54 at drugstore.com.
