In my country there are not many products that do what the Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Finishing Creme does. Mostly it is gel or mousse or spray and lately a lot of oils but nothing creamy that puts back the Frizz, especially when you straighten your hair like I do. So this gives it a healthy shine and puts the flying hairs back into place and I have mine for 2 years now and its still working and doesn't smell funny or anything. The price is okay considering that I still have it so long (but I don't use it on a daily basis). Still worth its price.
Love it! Non greasy and makes my damaged, dry hair look awesome. Especially on the go when I can't spend too much time working on it at home. Smells great and doesn't weigh down hair. Little bit goes a long way for me. Really helps mask damaged split ends (which I have so many of and just cannot help to my wits end!) and also fly aways. Super helpful for dry hair in winter and also when humidity strikes in summer.
My hair is pretty fine and straight, shoulder length. Have already repurchased another to leave in my desk at work and will again for sure. Overall a fantastic finishing cream that helps conceal flaws.
I literally just made an account just to write this review, because I'm shocked that there are bad ones. I'm one of those girls that HATES my hair. It's thick, course, frizzy, and its this awkward in between of curly and wavy. But I LOVE this product. I keep one in my bathroom and one in my backpack or purse. I think you do have to learn to use it right, because only a dot is needed or else I can understand how it would make your hair feel greasy or sticky. Otherwise, it calms my frizz and gives my hair a softer, shinier texture that it would never have on its own. I recommend using a dot and distributing as evenly as possible. I will be buying this as long as they have it for sure!
i was very disappointed by this product because it tames fly-aways for a few minutes and then they just come back. i would not rebuy because it does nothing for my hair. i use it after straightening (with heat protector applied) as the "secret weapon finishing creme" it's described as and it just not help at all.
I'm on my third or fourth tube of this product--I find myself buying an extra tube whenever I'm at a drug store because I never want to run out. I am of Middle Eastern descent and have very thick, coarse, frizzy curly hair and this is the only product I've found that tames the frizz. That said, I don't use this as a "finishing creme." I apply two quarter-size dollops as soon as I get out of the shower, root to tip. It gives a nice definition to my curls as well as taming the frizz. Then I use a mousse as a finishing touch.
The only thing I don't like about this is that it doesn't last all day long. I would carry it around with me (it's not a very big tube so it wouldn't be a huge inconvenience) and reapply if needed.
Bottom line--if you have very thick, frizzy hair, you'll want to try this for everyday use. If you're just looking to tame flyaways or minimize frizz on humid days, you might have better luck with something else.
what a huge waste. i would put it on after i straighten my hair and it would make my hair curly and frizz within seconds. won't be buying again.
this product works best for puffy hair as opposed to frizzy hair. my hair is fairly straight, but thick and when i brush it with a boar bristle brush this helps to remove the fuzziness put keep the movement and volume. the difference i find with this and a serum is that this is a bit more texturizing and helps maintain my waves, a nice finishing touch. like someone else mentioned, it works well to revive a blowout. i like the way this works on my hair and not as greasy as say redken outshine and similar to bumble and bumble brilliantine. i wouldn't recommend to really fine/thin and probably won't control much for really curly. and for me it works best on dry hair. great product for the price!
I first bought this so long ago; I donít even know what my motivation was for choosing this. If I had to guess, it would probably be due to its claims of de-puffing hair, which as a teenager is all my thick, long, coarse, naturally curly hair did: poof! This creamís effects on curly hair are good, but it wonít re-define dry fuzzy curls and it doesnít add much shine. But it really works best when Iím reviving a blowout or trying to keep the blowout in place on a humid day. In those situations, this cream is a lifesaver. Again, itís a little lacking in shine, so when Iím reviving a blowout after sleeping on it, I run my flatiron over the kinks, spread one pump of Davines Oi/Oil through my hair for shine, then use a pea-size of this to smooth down any flyaways for puffiness that the flatiron didnít get. For midday, Iíll do the same thing, minus the flatiron. It really does its job. Although I donít use it every day, and since a little goes a long way, I donít repurchase this very often, but when I run out, Iíll be buying this again.
I really hate this product. On dry hair all it did was make my hair greasy and wet. On wet hair it did nothing for me. It was a big waste of money. I have thick, long hair that tends to frizz a lot and wanted something to keep flyaways and frizz to a minimum, this wasn't the product for me. I will not be purchasing this again.
This is one of the few drugstore products that actually works for my hair. I like to air dry my slightly wavy hair and I apply this once dry as the instructions state. My hair tends to be a little on the dry side so this might be a tad greasy for some but I get little frizzies and this really takes care of that and adds soft definition without being stiff. I did not find this to be sticky at all as a reviewer below stated, kind of confused by that statement but I do have a pretty old tube of this product so maybe they changed the formula? I hope not! I admit I rediscovered this product, I am a product junkie so I liked this enough but I always try new things. Recently I decided to go back to this and I really don't know why I stopped using it. I am running low on this tube so we'll see if the formula changed once I buy a new one.
