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!

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.
