This nourishing hair oil is the ultimate multitasker

Here’s what our SUPERcrew had to say about this does-it-all treatment

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / December 05 2019

The product

There is a myriad of hair products on the market that cater to just about anything, and while we appreciate the options, sometimes it’s best to streamline your arsenal with a do-it-all product that tackles everything from conditioning to styling. 

Kerastase® Elixir Ultime L'Huile Originale is a highly-concentrated fluid-oil treatment with anti-humidity properties that works to deeply nourish and protect hair and leaves strands soft, shiny and strong.

The oil can be used alone as a concentrated treatment, added to a mask for extra nourishment, used as a finishing oil to tame fly-aways and restore shine, or applied as a heat protectant prior to heat styling. This little guy really does it all.

Our panel of SUPERcrew members put this product to the test:

The lowdown

Here’s what the SUPERcrew loved about Kerastase® Elixir Ultime L'Huile Originale.

How shiny and smooth it made their hair look: Our SUPERcrew members loved how the oil smoothed down fly-aways and frizz and left their hair looking shiny without making it greasy or feeling heavy with product.

It’s a great multitasker: Reviewers loved the different ways they could use the product in their haircare routine: on wet or dry hair, as a conditioning treatment or as a styling product.

The luxe scent and packaging: From the translucent, gold glass bottle to the unique woody fragrance, our members loved the overall luxurious feel of the oil.

The verdict

“[It] really helps tame frizz and flyaway strands if you use it on dry hair. I find it speeds up drying and styling time, and also prevents my hair from drying out. I would recommend this hair oil for normal to dry, frizzy hair types. I have noticed that it really leaves my hair feeling soft, smooth and silky, and has a lovely lingering fragrance.”

“I am hesitant about using hair oils, but this offering from Kerastase works beautifully on my hair without weighing it down or looking greasy. The oil has a very light scent and I apply 1/2 a pump at night (a little goes a long way!) on freshly washed damp hair and it leaves my hair feeling incredibly soft and looking shiny and healthy.”
SUPERcrew Member
“The oil has a variety of uses which was a big plus for me. It can be used as a pre and post-shower treatment and a pre and post-styling oil. I mainly used it as a post shower treatment to keep my frizz at bay and hydrate my ends. It detangles my hair nicely as well. The oil is fluid and absorbs quickly. It doesn't weigh down my hair or make it go greasy. My hair is left with a beautiful shine and softness.”

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
