Dear Clark, Smoothing Elixir

To paraphrase Shakespeare, the course of a good hair day never did run smooth. But this botanical-based styling cream clears the way, banishing frizz and flyaways even in serious humidity—so it’s easier than ever to get (and keep) a smooth, sleek ‘do.

Texas made!

I got the Dear Clark wash in my box and decided to give this Elixir a try. Glad I did - my hair is short but gets weird in humidity, and this really helped. Plus I love the smell of all these products. Will be purchasing again, great find Birchbox!

Smoothing Hair Product
Purchased

I ordered a full size version of this anti-frizz smoothing gel and I wasn't entirely pleased with it. I have very thick, coarse, dark hair so it's extremely hard to tame. The consistency was okay but ultimately did not last throughout the day. It seemed to settle on the surface of my hair rather than taming the shaft of my hair.
I would also beware that while it is technically catered towards females, it smells a bit like men's cologne. Just something to keep in mind.

smells heavenly
Purchased

I have been looking for a combination anti-frizz and sleeking lotion/serum. This is it. Great smell. It is quite watery which was an adjustment from other--more chemical--products. I love it. I hope the brand expands heavily.

just ordered two more

I have tried a number of products that will fight humidity and Dear Clark's a winner in my book. I have fine hair and this product gives me volume without frizz. Such a clean, fresh smell too. I think I'm hooked!

Amazing Smell
Purchased

I'll be honest - I purchased this after receiving a sample of another Dear Clark product because I was so obsessed with the amazing scent. I love this product, but mostly because of the smell. It's a little too sticky to use in dry hair, but is much better in wet hair. Great leave in conditioner option for frizzy hair.

Great product for curly hair
Purchased

I use this when I first get out of the shower to keep my curls frizz-free. Can be a little sticky though if you use too much.

Only product my husband will use
Purchased

We tried several products for my husband's newly long hair, and this was the winner by far. Great smell, holds the style without looking greasy, and lasts a long time. Highly recommend.

Smells Amazing
Purchased

My favorite part of this product is the smell--it's incredible! It does a pretty good job at smoothing my fine but wavy hair for blow-outs, but I do have other products (also introduced to me by Birchbox) that I prefer to use for blow-outs. I like to use this product in particular if I'm letting my hair dry naturally, as it helps my waves be frizz-free (and again, smells so good!).

Ok
Purchased

it is ok but the smell is horrible. It smells kind of like a cheap men's after shave lotion. Everything else is good.

Love the volume, texture and scent!

As a child of the 80s, I love volume!
I'm always testing products that promise volume -- and this one delivers! I haven't had such a 'good hair day' in quite a while. I love everything about it and can't wait until it is back in stock! Luckily I have my sample to last me until then.
