9 Facts About Elixir Ultime L'Huile Range

Our Elixir Ultime L'Huile Range of serums is a favorite amongst our users. From their rich ingredients to their multiple benefits, there’s so much to know about these versatile hair serums. To help you understand better, we’re here with top 9 questions about our Elixir Ultime L'Huile serums.

Is Elixir Ultime recommended for all hair types?

It is a myth that serum is only suited for certain hair types. Sometimes, people who have finer hair avoid using such serums out of fear that they would weigh their hair down. However, the truth is that the only people who won’t benefit from hair serums are those who aren’t interested in a formula that will nourish their strands and transform them into soft and shiny hair. The Elixir Ultime L'Huile Originale Serum is perfect for any kind of hair that’s feeling dull, dry, coarse or frizzy,
irrespective of your hair type.

Why use a hair serum for hair?

For you to understand the answer to the question "why is a serum good for your hair?" let's understand the characteristics of serums like the Elixir Ultime. As their rich texture permeates your strands, it gives your hair a boost of vitality and helps it feel stronger, softer, and shinier. Not just that, they also work as heat protectants against the stresses of blow-drying and hot irons in addition to providing a striking shine. Additionally, they have anti-humidity properties, making them a powerful anti-frizz treatment. They’re also enriched with precious oils such as:

  • Marula oil: Boosts shine and moisture in dry, dull hair.
  • Camellia oil: Helps smooth the hair fibre.
  • Argan oil: This powerful multi-tasker is high in antioxidants and essential fatty acids to simultaneously support hydration, softness, heat protection, and elasticity and restore shine.

If you have colour-treated hair, you must consider using our carefully formulated Elixir Ultime L'Huile Rose Serum that nourishes colour-treated hair and restores shine.

How much serum should you use?

So, what's the ideal way to apply these serums? How much do you really need to apply? Your hair's length, thickness, texture, and health will determine how much product you need. Depending on how you use the serum, you'll need between one and five pumps to achieve a radiant effect. To decide how much you need, apply one pump at a time and distribute evenly throughout your hair. Then, keep adding one pump at a time until you're satisfied with the outcome. Once you've used Elixir Ultime a few times, you'll be able to determine how much product you will need to achieve healthy, glossy hair.

Is it best to use Elixir Ultime on wet or dry hair?

When to apply hair serum depends on the outcome you want. Elixir Ultime provides less shine when applied to damp hair, but it also provides heat protection and detangling benefits. You can protect it from the pollution in the city and use it as a leave-in serum or just use it to blow dry your hair to style it. These serums are highly versatile and can be used as a leave-in conditioner, heat protectant, blow dry serum, finishing gloss, or be used just to make your hair smell great!

Can you use Elixir Ultime on curly hair?

Hair serums and curly hair are a perfect fit. The hydrating and anti-humidity qualities of a good hair serum effectively combats the dryness and frizziness that curls can be prone to. Elixir Ultime performs best when applied as a curl-defining serum by winding through each curl individually from lengths to ends.

Will it add long-lasting shine?

The ideal method for getting shiny hair is to a leave-in serum and the Elixir Ultime serums offer 6x shine, 96HR frizz control and heat protection up to 230 degrees*!
