I got this range quite a while ago and have been using for at least a month. You can read my introductory post about the Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Oil Elixir here.
I’ve been using the full range and have some reservations about some products and absolutely love others.
What I loved:
Schwarzkopf Ultimate Oil Elixir Express Repair Conditioner
This leave-in conditioner worked wonders on my hair. I liberally sprayed it into my wet hair after a wash and noticed a huge difference compared to when I did not. When I did not do it my hair was strawy and tangled very easily. With the conditioner I noticed a huge difference in the quality and feel of my hair.
Ultimate Oil Elixir Structure Build-Up Mask
I also loved what this did to my hair. I used to wash my hair and slap it on under a shower cap for a good 5 minutes, even though it says one minute on the tub and my hair felt really good after the first use. I didn’t notice any sustained difference, but it also smells really good. The boyfriend did notice.
What I liked:
Ultimate Oil Elixir Serum
I really love how this makes my hair feel when I use it. It makes my hair shiny and soft. I do have to use more product than some of the other serums I’ve tried but I really love that this comes in a spray bottle. This serum is a combination of oils like Argan and silicone and definitely gives my hair a sleek and soft feel when I use it.
What I didn’t like:
Ultimate Oil Elixir Shampoo & Conditioner
This shampoo really strips my hair of everything. The company will boast that it won’t ‘build up’ in you hair, but I do feel that after one or two washes my hair texture changed slightly. I can’t really claim that it nourished my hair, if I didn’t use the leave-in conditioner my hair felt dry and brittle.
I don’t have much to say about the standard conditioner. It worked well but my hair has never been as knotty when I used this.
I’m not very impressed with the shampoo and conditioner, but still love the mask and leave-in conditioner.
