Kerastase Elixir Ultime Rose Millenaire

After this summer I might even have better quality of hair than before.

How come?

I think one of the reasons that kept my hair at bay (at the bay too) and even lessened the fluffy factor, has been the Kerastase Elixir Moringa Immortelle.

I wrote about testing it here and after 2 months I can only say:
  1. "Wow" 
  2. At least something expensive and new helps!
 So why new Kerastase? Well, I questioned my readers earlier this August "why not stick to the familiar?"

In this case I felt my hair cured a bit from the heavier Kerastase Moringa Immortelle oil that I could downsize to a lighter oil. Thus tadaaaah:

My first impressions:
  • a lot lighter in texture than the Moringa Immortelle
  • also lighter in texture compared to the original (gold bottle) Kerastase Elixir Ultime
  • thus, better when aiming for a hair-look that involves lots of volume.
  • Scent: a light rose scent, lingering between a luxury rose scent and a more drugstore rose scent. 
  • Scent: dissapears in 3 minutes.
  • Smoothing: slightly less than the Moringa Immortelle but more suitable for finer hairtypes 
  • Suitable for hairtypes from normal to dry
Basically, hair/hairstyles with healthy texture, wanting extra gloss/care without comprimising on volume, nor that it would hinder their other volumizing products.

Overall, I like it, but for my dryer ends I feel that it's too light. I prefer to use the green Kerastase Moringa Immortelle on the dryer ends and the Rose Millenaire on top.

I have heard of this brand, but just never tried it since the price is a bit expensive for me. :( Thanks for the review though
