In Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo – Complexe, you will find a number of natural oils: Corn oil, Argan oil, Camellia oil, Pracaxi oil.
Corn oil – improves resilience, makes hair smooth and easy to style.
Argan oil – protects against damage and high temperatures emitted by the blow-dryer or straightener.
Camelia Oil – provides antiseptic and soothing properties, but also hinders the penetration of toxins into the hair.
Pracaxi oil – is known for its regenerating properties, provides hair with brilliance and resilience
In addition to the aforementioned oils, Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo – Complexe contains a number of silicones, which (unfortunately) disqualify it as a regenerative treatment for hair and the scalp. The action of natural oils is also disturbed by the content of harmful alcohol, which can dry and sensitize the hair. The fragrance (parfum) added to Kerastase oil can also be a harmful, drying alcohol.
