Your hair is an extension of your aesthetics and lifestyle—and it goes through a lot. It’s often the subject of your impulsive desire to change your overall look or keep looking chic and put together. At this point, it has been straightened, curled, dyed, or styled, on top of being washed and conditioned regularly.

All these processes inevitably place chemicals that can damage the hair. Uncontrollable external factors, such as the humidity in a tropical country like the Philippines, can cause frizziness. Your diet can also play a big role in severe hair issues if you're not keen on it.

While getting salon treatments can make a difference in aiding these issues, establishing a hair care routine customized to your lifestyle is necessary to ensure that your locks remain healthy and luscious.

There are numerous hair care products on the market today, but one item that should be on your hair care arsenal is hair oil. Hair oils have a long list of proven benefits. For instance, Kerastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil packs hair care ingredients for various hair types paired with a therapeutic aroma and a long-lasting effect.

What is Hair Oil and Why Do You Need It?

Hair oils are oils extracted from plants, herbs, and fruits rich in various natural nutrients that help promote healthy-looking hair. Ultimately, this hair care product intends to:

  • Moisturize your hair to prevent hygral fatigue that causes dryness

  • Reintroduce the gloss-generating hair lipids often lost to chemical treatments, styling, or exposure to pollution

  • Create a protective barrier against the sun's UV rays, heat treatments, and other damage from styling hair

  • Manage hair fall and strengthen the hair, particularly with frizz and dryness

Hair oil isn’t a comprehensive treatment like any other product. So, make sure to diagnose your hair using the Kerastase diagnosis tool to know the hair concerns you’re dealing with before starting a new line of hair care and creating new routines.

The good thing is hair oils are generally proven excellent treatments for the following hair concerns:

  • Dry, frizzy, and dull hair: Hair oils act as moisturizers for the hair, restoring the hydration it needs to maintain its luscious shine and suppleness.

  • Dry and damaged: Constant exposure to hair treatments and heat from styling, UV rays, and pollution damages your hair. Hair oils with heat-damage protection create a protective barrier against these external factors. It also smoothens hair frizz and reduces the appearance of split ends by hydrating the hair, preventing further damage.

  • Flat and greasy: If your locks are on the greasy side, your scalp may produce excessive sebums, which you may remedy by over-washing. Hair oils can help rebalance the scalp's sebum levels, eliminating the greasy sensation and adding volume to your hair.

FAQ: How to Properly Use Hair Oil

Optimize Elixir Ultime to your hair needs and concerns. Learn how to use and apply the product effectively to get the most out of your hair care experience.

  1. How much hair oil should I use?

Consider the length, texture, thickness, and condition of your hair in deciding the amount of Elixir Ultime Hair Oil you need to use. The key is to build up your application, starting with 1-2 pumps. But depending on the volume of your hair, use more as necessary.

  1. Should I use hair oil on wet or dry hair?

Applying the product to wet hair increases its detangling and heat protection benefits but reduces its possible shine. Meanwhile, dry hair application maximizes its shine and targets frizz. To achieve both results, apply 1-2 pumps to wet hair and another 1-2 pumps to dry hair.

  1. What styling tools work best with hair oil?

Curled, straightened, or blow-dried hairstyles look best with hair oil. Since the Kerastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil has heat-protective features, you can get the best hairstyle with ensured hair care and protection all day.

  1. Can I use hair oil if I'm air-drying my hair?

Yes, you can! Applying the product to wet hair enhances its protection from frizz and pollution while leaving a subtle sheen as it dries.

  1. Should I apply hair oil on my lengths only, or can I use it on my scalp?

It’s best to apply your hair oil to your hair strands and not directly to your scalp, as it may aggravate adverse outcomes. You can always pair your hair care products with scalp treatments for a more holistic treatment.

  1. How often can I use hair oil?

You can apply the Kerastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil a couple of times per week. But for extra shine, you can use the product daily. You can apply it an hour before washing your hair and then after it dries. You can also use it for a few small touchups here and there.

  1. What is the secret to long-lasting shine using hair oil?

The Elixir Ultime is formulated with high-performance oils that provide 48 hours of hair oil shine. On top of this, you can apply a minimal amount of the product after styling your hair or touch it up throughout the day to achieve that long-lasting hair oil shine.

  1. Will it make my hair greasy?

Greasy hair can either be caused by your scalp's excessive sebum production or the overapplication of a product. So no, hair oils won't make your hair greasy if you only apply the amount you need. The Kerastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil can also help rebalance your sebum production.

  1. Will hair oils work on curly hair?

It will! Curls are prone to dryness and frizz, which are two things hair oils target. In addition, use Elixir Ultime to define your curls and give them a boost of moisture and extra shine throughout the day!
