Kérastase Elixir Ultime Oléo-complex Shampoo

Since I started tip-toeing around beauty-blogging, I have always been seeing a lot of raves of Kérastase products. Since I always look for brands which would fit my pocket and the fact that unsure of these products would work, I did not want to put my money on stake. ( A lot of high end products have let me down before.). But well, call it luck, My Envy Box had put in this Kérastase Elixir Ultime Oléo-complex Shampoo and the corresponding hair mask in one of the boxes.

Price: 80 ml for Rs 750


Here is now my experience with Elixir Ultime Oléo-complex Shampoo:

The shampoo looks transparent amber colored and smells beautiful. It is on the runnier side.
On first wash, it does not lather well. But on second wash, it lathers up. If my hair is dirty, I wash my hair with some other shampoo and in the second rinse, go with this Elixir shampoo which also works the same.

The shampoo actually feels mild on the hair and scalp. It feels like it cleanses without stripping moisture off the hair. I use it mostly with the mask. But, I have also used with other conditioners and that way, it wasn't bad.

The shampoo in itself, did not do anything exceptional to my dry hair. But, it did not dry out further which confirms the 'gentleness'.

In short,

  • This is a mild shampoo for every day use.
  • It does not dry out the hair.
  • If your hair is dirty, this won't clean effectively and one would require large quantity which not everyone ( read 'I') would not spend on.
  • It did not do anything exceptional either.
  • Did not add to my hair woes.



Shall I repurchase? Unlikely because 80 ml for Rs 750 is too much for a shampoo even though it can be a good everyday shampoo, the amount I would have to spend on it would be ridiculous.

( Currently I am doing certain things for my hair which , I think, is helping. Shall do
a post soon.)

Have you tried this shampoo? What's your opinion of this?

  1. Nice review. Does this shampoo contain silicones and sulphates?
