If you have straight, fine (worst, limp) hair like mine, I am sure you also tend to stay away from using hair serums. Most of the hair serums I've tried tend to weigh down my hair, make it look oily (as if I didn't shower for days) and well, smell weird.
Until the Elixir Ultimate Grands Crus from Kerastase:
In France, the best wines and champagnes are called "Grands Crus" and in terms of these newest luxe oils from Kerastase, it means when the best elements creates extraordinary products. The Grands Crus range is a fusion of the award-winning Elixir Ultime (which is being sold every two minutes in the world) and more beautifying extracts. Each formula is tailor-made to specific hair needs, so everyone would be able to find an elixir suited for their hair type. And guess what, each scent of each variant has been inspired by luxurious French perfumes!

All four variants are versatile, here's how you can achieve beautiful hair with Elixir Ultime:
1. Pre-cleanse: Apply one pump of product to sections of brushed hair, massage gently. Add small amount of water to emulsify then rinse. Shampoo your hair, no need to apply conditioner, massage then rinse thoroughly.
2. Intensive conditioning: Towel-dry hair then apply one pump of Elixir Ultimate through mid-lengths and ends. Do not rinse.
3. Pre-blow dry: On towel-dried hair, apply one pump of Elixir Ultime through mid-lengths and ends. Blow dry as usual
4. Finishing: Work a small amount of Elixir Ultime into the ends of the hair to smooth and control. Do not rinse
5. Retouch: Apply throughout the day to dry hair that needs added control and nourishment.
I've tried the pre-cleanse using the gold variant, and was surprised how smooth my hair was even without conditioner. I don't blow dry my hair, but before air-drying it, I apply the purple variant onto the ends. I love how it gets rid of the frizziness and fly-aways without weighing my hair down. And of course, I love how my hair smells after.
All variants are priced at Php2280, not cheap but you really get what you pay for. And besides, you only need a little amount each time so a bottle would last probably 4-5 months even if used everyday. It's a luxurious treat to our hair, which is by the way our crowning glory, so why scrimp? And each variant is multipurpose, so no need to buy different products.
