This is my HG hair serum. I've been using this for about a year and have seen such a drastic improvement in my hair. I have vey thick shoulder length naturally wavy hair that I blow dry and straighten everyday. So as you can imagine I had horrible split ends. I went to a new stylist last year and she recommended this. I use only one pump for my entire hair paying particular attention to the split end prone areas, while it still wet, then blow dry. I seriously no longer have split ends. None..at all...no lie! Plus it leaves my hair smelling great and super soft. Try it, you won't regret it!
This product is really amazing. I have been blonde, brunette and now blonde again in a year. This is truly awesome for my hair. I use one full pump before blow drying and my hair is soft, and really feels healthy. I think it actually is healthier too. I have only used this a handful of times and I can tell it truly does what it says. It also leaves it smooth enough I dont need to flat iron it when I am done. That means that it is smooth enough from the blow dryer and this alone. Truly a miracle for damaged colored hair
I haven't tried this out for very long yet: only about 3 weeks, but I don't see this as something exceptional. It smells very nice, makes my hair dry a bit faster, but for the price I would expect more. This isn't as good at fixing my frizz as many other products and this doesn't moisturize or heal my hear. I don't use this with a blow drier - maybe this would work better with a little bit of heat. I would NOT use this with a flat iron regularly as I don't think this actually protects from heat - I HAVE tried it with a flat iron, and my hair felt like I hadn't put anything protective on it. I use about 1-1,5 pump for my waist long hair, on the areas that get frizzy. This is very silicony, but it's the type of silicones that evaporate very quickly and leaves behind whatever else is in the product. BTW: I don't notice much oil in this at all, so it's kinda strange that it's called an oil treatment...
I don't really know what more to say... I will try this out more and update this, but till now, I'm not impressed.
I've noticed that my hair, which usually only have flyaways, actually get static after using this... I thought silicones did the opposite... Anyway: I haven't had static hair for at least 2 years and it began appearing again after using this... I'm not yet sure why this happens. Also: the shine doesn't last more tan half a minute after application, which makes this... useless to me really. The effect of this just doesn't last - my hair feels nice for a short time only. I love the Silkening shampoo and conditioner (which I do recommend checking out if you can afford it), but I can easily do without this. I like using Mane n' Tail spray detangler instead - it has some silicones in it too, but my hair likes it much better than this.
END OF UPDATE
UPDATE 29. Des. 2012:
This is definitely not worth the money for me - I don't see ANY good effects - only bad ones: my hair gets oily easier, it gets static after using this and it also actually becomes more dull. I therefore lower the rating by one more lippie. If you live in the Scandinavia and want something similar in consistency, don't waste your time looking for this, try Define Anti-frizz Silk Serum, which actually delivers - it's everything I thought this "silkening oil treatment" would be. I also think Moroccanoil may have some of the same concept - oil treatment with silicones that should work in a similar manner. I just really want to say: it's not worth searching for this for hours and days, like I did, because there are many better things out there.

This is good stuff! My hairdresser always uses this before and after she blow dries and flat irons my hair. It cuts down on drying time and makes my hair very soft, smooth and no frizz. I do agree with the previous reviewers that you have to be careful how much you use. If you use too much, your hair may look too oily. 1/2 a pump works well for my shoulder length, thick, wavy hair. It works really well in conjunction with a blow dryer and also after you finish flat ironing just to smooth down any fly aways.
I have also used this when I'm lazy and only feel like "finger combing" my hair as I blow dry it and it still gives me smooth hair. Love this stuff!
Such amazing stuff. Makes my hair feel silky without weighing it down or leaving my strands feeling oily. You have to be carefull with it, use less product then you might need so you can always gradually add more. My hair is color treated and very straight and fine, it can often appear limp. I wanted something to soften and nourish, and this product left a weightless finish that I love. It works better for me personally than the morracan oil. I apply it focusing on my ends before blow drying or curling,
I love this serum! It cuts down on blow drying time & makes my hair silky & smooth. I like the pump bottle until it is almost empty - it's very difficult to get the last drop of the product.
This is my go to hair fix on a lazy day. I have naturally wavy and slightly frizzy hair so unless it is straightened or in a ponytail, it is a mess. This oil is much better than anything I've tried, leaving my hair soft smooth finger running ready and easy to maintain.
This product transforms your hair. It makes it soft, smooth, and un tangle it. It's a staple in my hair routine, I'm not sure I can live without it. I would definitely recommend this if it wasn't for the price. It's a little too much for my usual price range but I'd definitely rebuy it because of the quality.
NOTHING beats this miraculous treatment. It completely transforms my hair. My hair dresser explained that it is activated by heat so use it prior to styling because that it was makes it an oil treatment. I used to just use it as a finishing serum to polish off a look and it was wonderful. Now, I do prior to blow drying and styling and after. It seriously is superb. It's protects, nourishes, enhances, and treats. My hair thick, curly/wavy and coarse because of heat. However, this stuff makes my hair soooooooooooooo silky soft and shiny. I only use 1/2 pump prior to styling and post styling. It's truly phenomenal. My sister felt my hair and was astonished, it looks healthy and looks gorgeous.
I love anything that softens and shines. I've used Redken Smooth Down, Paul Mitchell Skinny (which did nothing), Argan Oil, Moroocan Oil, Tresemme Leave In Conditioner, Biosilk Leave In and this seriously puts them all to shame.
It is expensive. If I remember correctly its around $38. BUT absolutely worth it.
I will spurge on what works for my hair and this is it. :)
I've tried about 10 different serums, including the popular ones like Moroccan Oil and Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. This one is the best yet! The silicones in it are listed as 'somewhat water soluble' on this site: http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=13.
After using it for a few months I did notice my hair seemed less receptive (and more dry), I don't know though may have been from this cold, wet winter weather. Hope they don't stop making this great product.
The smell is very faint, can't notice it after blow drying my hair.
