Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Work a nickel-sized amount of elixir into clean, towel-dried hair. Blow-dry or air dry, then style as usual: The cream works equally well for sleek, straight hair and frizz-free curls.

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!

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.
