New Elixir Ultime by Kerastase

The Elixir Ultime line has been revamped for 2016! They are your go to products for any hair type and year round use. Here's a quick run down of the new product line.

Thin haired clients can benefit from the first ever bi-phase beautifying oil mist. The mist gives the power of volume while enhancing shine and softness.  Use the bi-phase oil as a cutting lotion during your next haircut, as a priming oil after washing, as a finishing touch to a blow-dry, or for a second day touch up to tame frizz.

Clients with thin hair can also benefit from the Elixir Ultime Fondant. The fondant conditioner provides a lighter way to detangle and deeply nourish without being too heavy.

The best selling Elixir Ultime Original Oil has been reinvented, re-imagined, and reborn! This classic oil can be used as a pre-cleanse before shampooing to remove impurities, as a pre-blowdry for heat protection and nourishment, as a finishing product to control frizz, and as a touch up throughout the day. A daily user of this product will see more shine, 24 hours anti-humidity, reduced split ends, and faster drying time to name a few.

Formaldehyde Free Keratin Treatment


Cezanne Perfect Finishing Smoothing Treathment is a formaldehyde free smoothing treatment that removes frizz without harmful chemicals. The formaldehyde free process penetrates into hair to infuse a unique blend of keratin, botanical extracts and vitamins that delivers smoother hair and a restoration of natural luster for overall healthier and more manageable hair.
Unlike other treatments that break bonds in the hair, Cezanne washes out so there is no permanent change to the hair and there is no line of demarcation between treatments. Cezanne works from the inside out to strengthen and fortify hair, which means hair is not only smoother, but also healthier and more manageable.
