Can it be kept overnight on the skalp?
mrunal on Feb 9, 2015
Best Answer: I have never kept it in that long. I tend to massage it in about 10 minutes before I'll be washing my hair, and have been really happy with the results. I'd suggest emailing the folks at Kiehl's to get an official opinion regarding overnight use.

does this product help in hair growth and filling gaps in hair?
pratiksha m on Aug 24, 2012
Best Answer: I use this product and I do not believe the intended purpose is to grow hair or fill in gaps in hair. I use it to add moisture to my scalp and luster to my hair. I use it as a finishing product not as a hair growth or hair replacement solution.

Should the product be applied on the wet hair or the dry hair? Thank you.
jinzhen g on Sep 24, 2012
Best Answer: It works best if applied to dry hair. i dab my fingers and massage directly to the scalp. Most beneficial when I can leave on for an extended period before washing my hair Usually I leave on for an hour or 30 minutes before washing out.
Hope this helps

Will this help with dandruff?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2015
Best Answer: Hi, I'm not sure about dandruff but i have found it very helpful for improving the overall condition of my scalp and hair. The oil just gets absorbed into the hair so easily. I thought it would be oily but no..it wasnt.

Hope this helps!

Do you apply the magic elixir oil only to the scalp or on the hair too from root to tip?
shazia s on Nov 14, 2013
Best Answer: I generally focus the application to the roots mainly, but then brush the product throughout my hair... Sometimes I will put some on the It shouldn't really matter because you are supposed to take a shower and wash the product out of your hair immediately after you apply it (you could also apply it to you hair and wrap it up and then wash it out later).

Can you leave it in overnight ?
A shopper on May 8, 2014
Best Answer: i do. then wrap my hair in a towel before i go to sleep.in the morning i wash it really good and it feels wonderful. i have short hair so i don't do it that way often. but if it feels over stressed or extra dry i do the over night treatment. but it works so well using it a couple of times of week that seems to take care of almost everything. it is a wonder drug! its magic!

I have fine, thinning hair. Is this product just for thick, coarse hair or would it be beneficial to all hair types? Does it wash out without weighing hair down?
kateinla on Aug 16, 2014
Best Answer: Oh my goodness, YES! You will love it!
I have very long, silver hair. Unlike most older women's gray or white hair that coarsens, mine turned very fine and flyaway, so I decided to try the Elixir.
I love this product!
I put it on and let it sit about 20 minutes, then wash my hair twice with the rice and wheat shampoo, then condition with formula 133. I rinse it all out. Sometimes my hair will still be a bit fly-away when freshly shampooed, so I take a dime size dab of for.133, add equal amount water, rub my palms together then lightly brush them over my hair. It falls like liquid silver down my back.
Complete strangers stop me to compliment my hair! It sparkles and shimmers like it is lit within.
Try it!

Can I use Magic Elixir AFTER washing my hair instead of before?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2016
Best Answer: I don't recommend it! The product is oily and a little heavy when it's in your hair. You should definitely wash your hair after you use it. If you are looking for a leave in oil, you might want to look for something more lightweight... I sometimes use grapeseed oil on my ends after I wash my hair (while it's still wet) and it works great for conditioning my ends. I haven't tried that with the Magic Elixir.

How often should we use it?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2013
Best Answer: I use to magic elixir once-twice a week depending on how dry my scalp feels (mostly weather related); so i tend to use it more in the winter versus the summer. make sure to not totally unscrew the cap and so you are not squeezing too much into your scalp. best to put it down the middle of your scalp and slowly massage outwards.

I am a male Caucasian in early 40s with brown hair. I have pretty good dandruff during the fall and winter months. I am using the Kiehl's dandruff shampoo to try to cure this. I also also want my hair to look smoothe and shiny at work but not gelled. Maybe I need a leave in treatment, but I need something that doesn't counteract with the dandruff shampoo. Does the Magic Elixer Hair Restructuring Concentrste do the job, or is there another Kiehl's product anyone would recommend?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2015
Best Answer: This product will improve the overall smoothness and shininess of your hair, but I don't think this is what you're looking for. Look for a lightweight oil like a moroccan oil, or even just cosmetics grade grapeseed oil. This will give you some shine. But I recommend trying the Magic Elixir, it's really wonderful. I love how my hair feels after using it.

How long does this product and any Kiehl product last?
Andrea M on Aug 15, 2014
Best Answer: I've found that the Kiehl hair products last a decent amount of time because an average application tends to use a small amount of product. Beyond that, no one can give you a reliable answer--how long the concentrate lasts depends on how much you use.

Can we keep this oil over night bcoz as per directions,it should be kept for 10 mins.is it harmful to keep this oil overnight ?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2017
Best Answer: I have left it on over night and it didn't harm anything but my pillowcases. If im being honest i didnt notice it do anything different than capping it. I'd recommend if you can to just put it in our your head in a bag or plastic shower cap and clean your house for a while before washing it out. It was much less messy this way. The heat from cleaning and such will help.

Hi there,
I have fine hair and would like to strengthen as well as thickening hair. Would this be a good treatment for me?
Shubhra on Mar 2, 2017
Best Answer: It's really not a thickener though I can see it helping maybe if you have breakage. For fine hair, this will likely soften and condition it further which will make your hair appear to have less volume. I'd suggest going for a thickener or volumizer. This is more for if you have problem scalp or your issue is maybe breakage.

Can it be used as a leave in if you have an incredibly dry scalp?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2012
Best Answer: I wouldn't recommend it as a leave-in. It would probably be great on your scalp but when it is on your hair it has an oily sheen and weighs it down. However, I have a dry scalp and have used it as directed and it has definitely helped!

Can this be used as an overnight treatment?
Briana G on Sep 4, 2015
Best Answer: 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.

Deep Micro-Exfoliating Scalp Treatment
Deep Micro-Exfoliating Scalp Treatment
Best Answer: When I use the Magic Elixir, it stimulates my scalp. You can really feel it working. Having said that, the combination of the two at the same time may be a little much for your scalp, depending on the sensitivity of it. Also, if you scratch your scalp (we all do at night when we are sleeping), the intensity of the "sensation" may be greater. My suggestion would be to try it on a very, very small patch of your scalp and see the results. Proceed slowly. Essential oils are natural, however their therapeutic effects are powerful, you don't want to overdo it.

I am a male with super Curly Dark Brown Hair. Is this something that can weigh it down? Would it also make my hair more Oily? I have to be very careful with hair care products as nearly everything causes my hair to frizz if it doesn't moisturize appropriately. But some Products are too oily or too heavy. Anyone have experience with curls and this or other Kiehls products?

Best Answer: I have very curly hair. When used as directed, this product doesn't weigh my hair down. It is not oily and actually helps with the frizz. My hair is very fine as well and this product makes it look and feel soft and moisturized.
