How I discovered it: I was at the hairdresser last week and my stylist used this product instead of the usual serum, applying it to my wet hair after washing and conditioning, but before blow-drying.
What they say: “Our first versatile beautifying treament enriched with a complex for four precious oils. Maize, Argan, Camellia and Pracaxi oils combine to create a luxurious Elixir for all hair types ... The alchemy of four precious oils to beautify hair A new legend is born, the secret of magnificent hair is revealed. With a few drops of Elixir Ultime, hair is transformed into silky, weightless matter. Applied before cleansing, hair is instantly nourished and visibly regenerated. Applied before styling, hair is incredibly supple and protected.”
What I say: I love this product! It seems to do everything a silicone serum does, but it’s lighter and feels like it’s doing my hair good. They’re right about versatility – I’ve used it as a leave in conditioner, a serum, and a ‘between washes’ smoother, and am very happy with the results. As a bonus, the smell is delicious.
What could be improved: At around £36 it’s not cheap, but as I’m using it one or two drops at a time, the 125 bottle means there might be some left to leave to my great-grandchildren! :oD It would be great to have the option of a smaller size – and a travel size would be heaven!
The Verdict: Lorelei loves it!
