Most Helpful Positive Review I wish it came in a bigger bottle
I really love this product. I use it when my ends are feeling particularly brittle and my hair shows signs of damage as a sort of reset. I definitely leave it on longer than 8 seconds. I let it really set into my hair (not sure if that is against any recommendations but...it works and I feel like it's helping). You can barely feel the product until it's time to rinse. Your hair feels so silky and manageable the instant it hits the water! I love that feeling! From someone who has spent hours working through knots, it is a miracle product! The downside is that it is measured in "doses" on the back and if you have long hair you obviously need to use more so you can blow through a bottle fairly quickly, especially if you use it as often as recommended.
Most Helpful Critical Review Dry Hair!
I used this twice for my relaxed hair. This product has a great scent and warms the scalp upon application. However, it left my hair very dry after rinsing. Even after following up with a conditioner, my hair still felt dry and tangled. Caused some shedding after letting my hair air dry. Once I discontinued use, my hair was soft again.

This product is great! I believe it's a dupe for the Redken extreme bleach recovery. They have the same warming effect and same results imo, so if you don't wanna pay 25 dollars, go for this!
Great and cheap
CharmedOne from VA
Can see a difference, subtle but my hair is softer. I have curly, frizzy hair and it makes it look better. Can't put my finger on it, just better. It's not that expensive so worth it to me.
I don't understand the hype
Beep from Riverside, CA
First it's not watery, it feels just like oil. I'm not sure what the warming is for but I'm keeping my mind open. It's a rather average conditioner in that it's not enough for my long balayage'd hair. I have to follow up with my usual Terax conditioner. It smells good and I don't hate. I'd say it's a good option for people with normal or only lightly damaged hair.
Rashea from Hillsboro oregon
My hair is dry and brittle, and feels elastic. Used this once with a blow out and my hair was so shiny (not greasy) not frizzy, and continued to feel soft and tangled free. Skin/scalp felt itchy wasn't sure if I didn't Rinse well enough. After washing my hair after a couple days I did not use or blow dry yet my hair still felt silky and smooth and not frizzy. Have already recommended to a friend.
Hollywood from SoCal
Imagine you've been swimming in a heavily chlorinated pool all day. Then you wash your hair with dish soap and no conditioner. That's what my hair feels like right after I use this stuff. So tangled that it takes 15 minutes to get a wet brush through it. Once it's dry, it feels frizzy and rough. I've used it three times with the same result each time.
Kate from Bellevue, WA
This product delivered as promised. It made my hair silky smooth. I used as directed including conditioner. Absolutely will buy again.
aglensb from Boston
I have long frizzy hair that has a fair amount of heat damage. Naturally it's been a little worse since I haven't been to a salon since February due to the pandemic . I used this after a shampoo- and I didn't use conditioner so I could see actual results . I was amazed . The brush went right through my hair - and when I blew it out - no frizz to be seen and it was soft and shiny . You definitely feel the burn when you apply it - don't be scared ! The only negative is the smell is pretty harsh.
Magic in a bottle
claudia from ND
I have no idea how this works, but it does! After the first use my hair was softer and shiny. I did not have issues with my hair taking loner to dry or feeling dry afterwards as some reviewers did
Mamacita from Washington
My hair is think and lightened. My hair went from fried looking from being over bleached to smooth and healthy looking like Barbie doll hair! This stuff is amazing!!!
Browneyez87 from California
I've been wanting to try this for a couple months . Never could find it in stock. Well I finally got my hands on one and tried it for the 1st time today. It smells good. There is a warm sensation when it goes on the hair. I have medium/long thick hair and I only used 2 doses even tho it says use 4. I still used my normal hair products after which include a leave in conditioner & blow out cream. While blow drying it I could already feel how smooth and soft my hair was. Definitely gonna stock up on this and use it regularly.
Doesn't do anything for me
Samantha from CT
This didn't do anything at all for my hair. I used it exactly as directed and my hair looked and felt no different afterwards. It seemed like a miracle product based on most of the reviews, but it was basically like massaging fragranced water into my hair. No effect whatsoever.
Love it! Instant Holy Grail
Kami from Washington D.C.
I have relaxed 4/ab hair that I wear curly doing wash snd go's. I used this for the first time after my shampoo and before my conditioner. Initially I thought I had made a mistake because my hair got a little hard but it softened as time went on and the rinse out....ANGEL SANG! This an instant holy grail. I'm buying more because like with all good drugstore products they play with our emotions and discontinue. My hair is shinier, more moisturized, less shedding and makes my subpar shampoos and conditioners work better. I highly recommend.
Finally found a drugstore product that is salon worthy.
Glammy Grammy from Central Michigan
I was in desperate need of something for my ends. Dry, splitting, needing a trim badly during pandemic but no salons were open. Tried this thinking what do I have to loose. Let me tell you, my hair has never been softer, my ends felt fantastic, like a fresh trim, great! Noticed a lot less tangling in my below the shoulders fine hair.
My 8 yr old Grand daughter has tush length ringlets that tend to get frizzy and it immediately smoothed, softened, and detangled her wild child mane. Made combing after bath time drama and tear free! I wish I could buy this in a bigger bottle. Like half gallon sized. I keep buying back ups, and end up giving them away to everyone asks what I've done to our hair. It's that good. And smells great too which is always a bonus!
Try it out
Beauty_lover from Summer vibes
I did an olaplex treatment and used this rinse out as a deep conditioner. I had to step out of the shower to use the mirror to help see where to apply. It is difficult to use directly from the applicator but transferring the required dosage into a spray bottle will help. I'll try that the next time and suggest anyone using this product to do so as well. It did have a slight warming sensation and made my hair so soft....easily could comb through my wet, bleached hair. Left it on for a few minutes then rinsed it out and blow dried. Worried about the alcohol in this product and how it will affect hair long term. However, it's definitely worth a shot. I'll have to see how this performs on a day I'm not doing my olaplex treatment.
I should not buy this product
nzc from budd lk nj.
I must be allergic to something in this product. 1st time small rash. 2nd time major reaction. This happened last night so I'm hoping after washing it out the rash around my neck ears and scalp goes away quickly 😱😳🥺
Wonderful!!...Soft, Shiny, and Healthy!!
Butterfly Girl from Delaware
My hair had become dry and brittle with split ends during lock down quarantine. With no prospect of getting a hair cut anytime, I began searching for products to mend and sooth my hair. This product is WONDERFUL!!! It brought back life to my hair! I purchased a pair of hair cutting shears from Ulta and used this product. I used this product before I even had the shears and saw immediate results with first use!! Love this! My hair is super soft, shiny and healthy due to this product!
Moe from Westchester, NY
Used on my son's coily hair. He didn't like the warm sensation but I thought it left his hair super soft.
My new favorite!
Becky from Richmond, VA
Use in the shower after shampoo for literally 8 seconds
works well, hard to get used to
Liz from Chicago
I was curious about this and actually got a discount off of 2 so figured I would try it. It is strange - it conditions my hair just like a heavy conditioner but only takes 8 seconds. Was it as nursing as a heavy duty conditioner? No, but helped make my hair soft and manageable for air drying.
I wish it didn't contain so much alcohol.
Jen from Fresno, CA
My daughter said this made her hair feel super soft. I didn't think it made mine much softer, but I am afraid of so much alcohol in this product drying out my fine wavy hair. My daughter's hair is super curly and and coarser, so maybe hair type makes a difference. I will continue to use it and see what I think.
Jenn from GA
I dont know what is in here but if I had to guess I would say liquid angel wings and fairy tale kisses. Last week my hair was the equivalent to rough-cut straw. I had tried every product imaginable but they did nothing. I saw this and thought, "why not??" mainly because it's inexpensive. Don't worry about a thing - this product is worth it's weight in gold! After just one use my hair feels like silk and shines like glass. I will be stocking up on bottles because I don't ever want to be without this miracle worker! BEST PRODUCT EVER!
lovelypeaches from New york
You can just feel your hair detangling while you use it. You don't have to use it every time you shower either. It also smells great!
I am so pleased that I ordered two bottles of this Elvive 8.
Lakegirl from N.C.
My hair is so manageable after using Elvive Wonder Water! Appropriate name as you would never believe it would work, and I only used a little on each side of my head. My hair is color treated (blonde), but it gets beautiful after I use it. The color (in particular) stays a beautiful blonde; whereas, conditioners often make it dull and more gold. I am thrilled with this product. My granddaughter used it when she visited and noticed that her hair is not as wavy after using it. You can comb through it so easily (and she has very long, thick hair. My hair is thick as well. I keep a comb in the shower and combed through it immediately. I did, however, get it in my one eye and it really burns, but after rinsing off, it felt much better. Love the product! Will purchase again!
Will keep using
Jazzie from Puyallup, Wa
I have used this since it first came out. I have dyed hair with highlights and needless to say with that I need to keep my hair conditioned because of the chemical treatment. This product delivers what I am looking for.
I love it
Sarita from Miami, FL
I love how this makes my hair feel. I have very thick frizzy hair that's very damaged and this actually makes it soft as soon as it touches my hair. I was honestly not expecting much, I kinda thought it was a gimmick but my mom gifted it to me. And I'm so glad she did. This is a new staple for me! I like it more than conditioner tbh!
