Magic Elixir is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice job :) I loved it so much I bought it for my sister...she loves it too :) We are picky about our hair and this made it so soft and conditioned the scalp. Both of us were very pleased with the results and the price! We are fans of Kiehls and this product did not disappoint us - Thank you:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really is Magic I have really fine hair and live in Florida so finding a product that gets rid of frizz and doesn't weigh my hair down is hard. I also have really dry skin and scalp. I took a chance after reading the reviews and was very very pleased with the results. My hair and scalp have never felt better. I don't do any styling on my hair and let it air dry and have stopped using any anti frizz treatments. I use this every 1-2 days and apply to my scalp right before I shower and work it in and then shampoo out at the end of my shower.
Date published: 2018-04-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So impressed! I wasn't sure what to expect but this elixir is a game changer for damaged hair. I apply once a week 10 to15 minutes before shampoo and once a week before bed to let it do its magic overnight. My hair is so much more shiny, strong, healthy and happy after just a couple of weeks. I will probably cut back to once a week soon to maintain the results. I highly recommend if you color your hair, use a hot iron, blow dryer, styling products; all those things that damage our hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I had a sample of this and used it only once. It made my hair feel amazing. Soft and healthy. I want to buy it but its pretty pricey. I will have to wait for a rainy day.
Date published: 2017-04-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from At the time I purchased this product, I was coloring my hair a lot. This was a great treatment to help hydrate and soften my hair. My hair is very healthy now but I still use it. I like to mix it with coconut and castor oil and leave it on for a few hours like a hair mask. My hair feels amazing afterwards.
Date published: 2017-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from De Frizz I leave this on my hair for 5-10 mins before washing. From when I started using it the texture and appearance improved dramatically. Much less frizz!
Date published: 2017-01-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Olive Oil works just as well I have thick, curly hair and took the advice of other reviewers. I work a significant amount through my hair and keep it on my hair overnight. My hair is soft and frizz free in the morning, but I get the same, if not better, results when I use olive oil so for me, this product is overpriced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The name holds to be true! This really is a magic elixir! After using this my hair was shiny and my color looked completely restored! It is light weight and doesn't make your hair look greasy but nourishes and conditions it! It's almost like a reset for your scalp. I will definitely be buying this again! It's so worth every penny! I used to a little bit and it went a long way whicheaper should be a sign that this product is fabulous!
Date published: 2016-10-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes scalp feel moisturized I use this about 10 minutes before I get ready to wash my hair. It helps my scalp retain som moisture before it gets shampooed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Indeed This Rosemary smelling product is exactly what it states - magic! I personally have short hair with dandruff every now and again, but once I use this product it clears up quickly. Sometimes I'll do what the directions say and shower it off after 15 minutes or so, but often times I'll sleep with it in. After I'll notice a beautiful sheen as if my hair has woken up from a deep, dehydrated sleep! Works wonders for everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only conditioning treatment I'll ever use again I have fine hair, but a lot of it. It has always been really difficult to get it to behave, and I have a cupboard full of products that I wasted my money on and used only once or twice because they made my hair super flat at the roots and not conditioned enough at the ends. This product has been a game changer for me. I use it every other day before I shampoo, leave it on for 10-20 minutes, use a gentle shampoo and no additional conditioner. My hair is fuller, shinier, healthier and so much easier to deal with. Finally!
Date published: 2016-01-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a relief! This product is magic for me :) I have been losing my hair from stress from classes on top of my scalp getting abnormally dry, flaky and irritated. Needless to say I have been desperate to find something that would work for longer than a day to relieve my scalp issues. This product did it for me.. I love the smell too :) I typically put it on my scalp before a run then wash it out after. Not sure how you could complain about the price if you have serious scalp issues. To each their own but I find this product to be a great value :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for damaged hair I have done a lot of perms on my hair and since I started using this product, my permed curls become even more defined and my hair feels more nourished. The overall quality of my hair has improved significantly. This product saved my damaged hair. I am on my second bottle now. The only thing is that I hope they produce a bigger bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this product Approximately 6 months ago I started suffering from itchy scalp. I immediately consulted with a Kiehls' specialist who recommended this product. I cannot say enough about this product. I no longer have itchy scalp and as a bonus my hair is shiny no longer dull. Product lasts approximately 2 months with once to twice a week usage. I am African American with thin, shoulder length hair. I swear it has made it thicker as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish it came in a larger bottle! I absolutely love this! I wish that is came in a larger bottle! The only con is that I have long bleach blonde hair and it soaks up a so i only get a few uses per bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from <3 I have curly, frizzy, dry hair. I really searched far and wide for a good conditioner/leave in treatment, but it never occurred to me to use a pre-wash treatment. I love this, and I can really tell when I don't use it. I just wish it came in a larger bottle but it's not bad for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I NEVER Give 5 Stars -- This Is The Exception -- Tremendous Product The title I wrote is true. While I am very fond of Kiehl's, this is my first 5/5 star rating. And, I didn't even think twice about it. Let me explain why: I suffer from dry scalp and wanted a pre-shampoo treatment. Boy, did I find the right one. The main ingredients are extremely hydrating to the scalp and the Rosemary Oil even helps combat the cause of dandruff. The first three ingredients are GREAT hydrating carrier oils : Avocado, Safflower and Sweet Almond Oils. They really sink into the scalp and moisturize the heck out of it before shampooing. Following those, comes the Rosemary Oil, which is a tremendous all-around essential oil that especially combats dandruff. So yes, the oils are great at a very reasonable price. The bottle lasts for much longer than you would think too. I bought two at the same time and I'm only 2/3 through my first bottle, which was purchased months ago. And, I use it at least 3-4 times per week. Lastly, there are no harsh preservatives whatsoever. Nice touch there. I also wanted to mention the cap on the elixir, itself. It's incredibly pragmatic because you can essentially put the tip of the cap right to the scalp then squeeze out the product. That way, it's easier to absorb and work into your hair and scalp. P.S.: I mentioned the three hydrating oils as "carrier oils" for a reason. This way, if you have a specific scalp concern (mine is dandruff), you can add in your own Essential Oils (besides Rosemary of course) to tailor to your specific needs. Pure essential oils on the scalp can cause irritation. With the first three ingredients being great carrier oils, you can add in 5-10 drops of essential oil(s) to dilute it without losing its "punch." (I added Tea Tree Oil & Peppermint Oil to the elixir and it really, really does the trick in helping with my scalp itchiness.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!!!!!!!! Is the best oil I have ever tried! My hair is very thin and it gets damaged very easily, but with this oil my hair looks and feels great! I don't have any split ends, even though my last haircut was four months ago! Plus, it won't leave it greasy!
Date published: 2014-11-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very nice product. A very nice product. Makes my hair silky soft and shiny. The smell is very strong. Reminds me of lavender, although there is no lavender in this product.... I use it before every wash, every other day. I noticed my hair get greasy very easily, but I can't tell if this concentrate is to blame as I use a beautifying product after washing too.
Date published: 2014-08-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Oil Treatment I have thick, coarse, chemically treated hair. I use hot oil treatments frequently, but when the seasons change I typically have to switch to something heavier. This product is great. I mix mine with a little tea tree oil. Put just enough to distribute all over my scalp and then leave it in over night.
Date published: 2013-11-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for scalp problems! I bought this after a sales assistant recommended it to me in a Kiehl's store. My scalp was feeling itchy and irritated although I have not been using anything foreign to my system. After the first application, my scalp felt instantly cleaner and after having used this for a few months, my hair and scalp are noticeably healthier!
Date published: 2013-10-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate results shown. I used this product as a trial to do something for my dull damaged hair. The results were immediate and I feel my hair has become stronger and more healthy. The hair is very think and soft. I recommend it to be used with the olive pak.
Date published: 2013-10-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever! It smells wonderful! BUT most importantly it works. I believe it is probably same as using olive/coccnut oil heat in hair, BUT this product does not need heat and only has to be applied for 10minutes. The handy tip allows non messy application. It made my hair silky, thicker, softer. It got rid of my split ends!!! Best product~
Date published: 2013-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Product! This is one of the best hair products I've ever used--and it's saying a lot, considering that I've bought products from both expensive haircare lines (Biolage, Fekkai, etc.) and retail lines (Pantene, John Frieda, etc). I like to leave it in my hair for about 20 minutes before I wash it off. It has a great herbal scent. But what I love most is after I wash if off and dry my hair. The day of and the day after, my hair is noticeably softer, smoother, shinier, and healthier. It's definitely a noticeable change and not just how I feel about my hair since I've noticed that I get compliments most about my hair right after using this product. I've used it for a couple weeks now (once a week) and I hope that with more use, my hair will stay this way even after days of use.
Date published: 2013-04-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I bought this products in hopes that it would help with my dry scalp. I've tried so many products and lots of home remedies but nothing seemed to work. It either didn't help the dryness, or it made me look like I hadn't washed my hair in a month. I'm very pleased with this product, it not only alleviated my dry scalp but it also made my hair shiny and healthy looking and feeling, without weighing it down or making it look greasy! I don't know how it works, but it does! I'm so impressed and would highly recommend it!
Date published: 2013-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super shiny hair & clean scalp I have very fine hair and tend to stay away from oily hair products, however I'd read so many wonderful things about this product I had to try it. It rinsed out easily and left no residue. My hair was soft, manageable and shiny. I often use build-up remover products but after using this product my scalp felt even more clean than it's ever felt after using a build-up remover shampoo. I now use it once or twice a week along with my normal hair routine. Highly recommended, even for fine hair.
Date published: 2013-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hair treatment! I am in my early 40s with long, professionally colored and highlighted hair. Lately my hair has become dry and dull and my scalp is drier than ever this winter. I used this product for the first time today and my hair is amazing soft and silky. I spend a lot on hair products, the best shampoos, conditioners, deep conditioners, heat protector sprays, styling products etc. None of the products made by others have come even close to making my hair look this wonderful and feel this soft! Some have commented on the smell in a negative way, but I don't mind it, it is not overpowering especially as you put it on for 10 minutes before shampooing.
Date published: 2013-01-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from EVEN BETTER THAN ADVERTISED THIS PRODUCT IS MAGIC IN A BOTTLE. IT WILL MAKE YOUR HAIR SILKY AND SHINY AFTER THE VERY FIRST USE. MY HAIR IS IN THE BEST CONDITION IT HAS EVER BEEN. I LIKE TO LEAVE IT IN AT LEAST 20 MIN. TO GET REALLY GOOD RESULTS. DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY THIS PRODUCT; IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.
Date published: 2012-11-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolute Magic This Magic Elixir is a wonderful product. I am one of those girls that loves playing with my hair and having it be nice and healthy, and this product really helped that! I live in a desert climate, and this product helps to keep my scalp and hair in general nice and healthy! The elixir creates a lovely sheen and look of health for my hair, and I love it! I just wish that the size was bigger for how much the price is, but I still love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shinier, healthier hair I have fine hair, lots of it, but it's brittle and dry from 20 years of color processing. It lacks volume and sheds excessively. Given the many issues that add up to difficult hair I've recently made a concerted effort to buy high-quality products, including my hair dryer, shampoo, conditioners, serums, treatments, etc...in addition to eating well and taking viatmins. The latest addition to my regime is the Magic Elixer. I've used it nightly for about a week and definitely see positive effects. My hair is shinier, smoother and looks and feels healthier. I will continue to use this and recommend to friends. The only con is that the smell i is strong. I don't particularly mind it but my husband is not a fan. Fortunately, since you only have it on your head for 10 minutes or so before showering this isn't a problem.

I've left it in overnight. The directions don't say to do it, but I did not notice any negative side affects. The longer it can soak it, the more deeply it will penetrate your hair. I also put some on the ends of my hair since I have really long hair and in working it in it never makes it to the ends of my hair.
