Question
How do you use it?
I already used this product, but I am still not understanding what it means when it says put it on section by section. I feel like I used too much of the product because after four uses the bottle is gone. Can someone please describe me exactly how they put it on?

Try keeping it the fridge - the cold will help you 'feel' when it is coming out of the bottle. I usually just tap it in a few different spots along a part, then use my fingers to rub it around to the surrounding areas.

It means to section off your hair as you do it. You know how when you get your hair cut the hairdresser sections your hair, he/she does not cut it all just laying there. So you could make 2 pig tails and section each one horizontally, apply the oil to the parts you make. You can let the hair fall together after the oil is applied. Try to use the oil sparingly, when you are finished massage your scalp to help distribute the oil. You will be surprised how it spreads around. If you feel certain spots could use more, apply as you see fit. I think that a lot of people tend to use a lot because they don't realize that once you massage it around a little can go a long way. This goes for any hair/scalp oil treatment. You don't need to overdo it and soak your head to get results. I learned the hard way. Hope this helps!

Turn the bottle upside down and trace your scalp in a broad grid, focusing on problematic areas. Then take your fingertips to massage in. I use this 2x/week and have had the same bottle for more than six months.

Section by section just means that you section off your hair like front, back, left side, right side, and apply the oil to the scalp and massage it through your hair.

I just splash it on in the back section of the top of my head and then rub it through the rest of my hair.

I use the product and just ignore the section by section method of application. I just put dots of it around my scalp and massage it in. I mean really massage with my fingers and nails. A bottle lasted about 9 months.

When I apply I make sure I have some on the crown and the sides above my ears. I massage the areas of application and move it outwards to cover the entire scalp. I then use my natural boar bristle brush to work through hair.

Question
What Does This Smell Like?
I noticed that eucalyptus and lemon were in the ingredients and some reviewers love the scent, while others hate it. So what does this product smell like?

I don't mind eucalyptus or lemon, but I don't know what Rosemary smells like. Does it have a scent like Tea Tree Oil or Patchouli?

Any help would be appreciated.

I finally bought this product and so I'll provide an additional answer. This product has a very strong scent of Eucalyptus and something else that I couldn't quite put my finger on.

Then if hit me: the scent reminds me of the smell of burning chimneys during winter time. Perhaps that smell is pine logs or some other synthetic fire wood --I live in Los Angeles so it wouldn't surprise me that those aren't real wood burning in the fireplace-- but the elixir had that exact fragrance.

It isn't bad and you do wash it out, but it's very strong!

it smells like a medicinal herb garden of sorts - it does not smell like Patchouli and not sweet. More the eucalyptus smell then anything else. It does not bother me, but as you have read in the reviews it is a polarizing product. You either love the smell or you hate it.... :)

After using ALL the below combination of products now for 3 weeks (1-2 times/week), I feel it has helped temporary hair loss reduction by only 5% - 8%. Still, I’m going to complete the 3 months treatment and see if it reduces hair loss. Maybe it’s too early to perhaps see a difference.

1) "Phytopolleine Universal Elixer - Scalp Stimulant" on dry scalp as a pre-shampoo oil
2) "Phytocyane Shampoo" & "Fekkai Protein Rx Reparative Conditioner"
3) "Phytocyane Revitalizing Lotion For Women - Thinning Hair" on wet scalp and towel dried hair

I don’t think the elixer will help alone.

BTW – there is another product by Rene Furterer - Reactional Thin Hair Program. If Phypto doesn’t help after 3 months, I might switch. Hope this review helped.

The way I do it is to put it on my scalp at least 20-30 minutes before a shower, put my hair up in a bun and put a shower cap over it (to catch any mess if it starts to drip. Better safe than sorry!) When I am ready to shower, I take it all off and I massage my scalp once more before hopping in. The product is great! If you are concerned about the smell, just do it on a weekend. After two washes, the smell is less noticeable and people may even think it is your shampoo! :) Good luck!

When you first tilt the bottle, and begin dispensing the treatment, it DOES come out very slowly. But as you continue to hold the bottle upside down and move it along your scalp, it pours more freely. I think it's designed this way to prevent it running down your face when you first turn it upside down and start at the hairline.
I hope this will help. After I figured out the trick to dispensing, it was easy to apply.

Question
Should my scalp hurt?
I have struggled with extremely dry scalp all my life, but it became worse after the birth of my daughter. I have used all types of shampoos and treatments, so far nothing has worked. I decided to purchase this product (although pricey) I have used it twice and the second time I used it I noticed my scalp became very tender and still itchy. I am not sure if I should return the product or continue to use? How often should I use it and should I leave it on over night?

Sounds like you may be having a reaction. I've purchased several bottles of this and use it from time to time and have never had a tenderness or itchiness. Carol's Daughter (also sold at Sephora) has an oil scalp treatment you may want to try. It's less expensive and you get a lot more product. Good luck!

It is awesome! I have had other products that work, but I always disliked using them because they were harsh on my hair while treating my scalp, or added buildup on my hair while drying my scalp. This is a pure pleasure to put on - I even put it on my man, I told him it is a "scalp massage".

It is recommended for a dry, itchy or irritated scalp. All of those symptoms can contribute to flakiness. I've used it for all of the above in conjunction with the Phytocyane treatment. My condition was cured after 12 weeks of use. Hope this helps...

I would be scared to try it because it is so strong - I have a feeling it would burn your eyes if it were to drip or smear. Maybe if you used only a tiny bit? I think there are probably other products out there which are better for the sensitive eye area.

Well, its best to use it when your hair is dry or mostly dried. Just part your hair and run the tip down the part (keep doing this until your scalp is practically covered with it.) You don't need to use that much. It can seem like the oils is not coming out but t is. Then just massage your scalp. I use it every-time i wash my hair but thats once a week.
