This was Aveda's best product, & they are insane to discontinue.
If you google Aveda Elixir there are loads of poors souls bemoaning its demise. For certain hair types (mine is fine & curly), this product is the biz.
There is currently a petition at ipetitions dot com to "Bring Back Aveda Elixir".
Have to say I get very irritated by the …

This product still pops up on ebay from time to time, so I still manage to get my fix. After all this time I still can't find a better product. AVEDA!! what were you thinking?

I would love to repurchase this, I just found out it's discontinued. I used this in conjunction with Confixor as my daily styler and it lasted forever, so I wasn't buying it all of the time, yet I loved it. The combination of the two products really was an effective, gently and de-frizzing combination/styler. I am upset that Aveda discontinued this along with everything else I used …Read more

Wow, I got it for 9 dollars since they were discontinuing it...and oh my, how do I love it? I use it only on the days where my hair feels like straw, but I love the smell and it instantly detangles and sets my hair right. The bottle will last FOREVER since you don't need a lot if you have thin hair like mine!

This is a MIRACLE product for my extremely fine, curly, dry hair! I have tried every leave-in in the world and this is the only one that didn't weigh my hair down but still moisturized and defined my curls. I bought five bottles last summer when I was told it was being discontinued, and I just finished my last bottle a week ago. Already I can see my hair is suffering-it's dry and …Read more

no! this product is discontinued! Aveda is promising an even better product, but for now there's no alternative in their haircare line.
Now I don't use it anymore I notice even more how well it worked for me. It was a great detangler for my long straight hair, easy to use, lasted ages and not greasy.

Great leave-in conditioner. Seriously only need a very small amount. Helps me detangle my hair since I'm allergic to the sapmoss and the discontinued the curessence spray. I loved that and they need to bring it back! Anyway, this is a very good product. I don't know if I'll actually need to repurchase since it lasts soooo long.

Aveda Elixir has been my favorite leave-in conditioner ever and I'm so sad they discontinued it!
The new replacement product is not nearly as effective, comes in a much smaller bottle, and is way more expensive.
I'm very disappointed.

For those of you sad see Elixir discontinued (and there are a lot of us--demand has set the going rate on ebay at around $25-$30 per 8.5 oz bottle), here's info on Aveda's replacement for Elixir, written in response to my email asking them to bring the product back:

We are happy to inform you that we will be launching a new product called Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother …
