First off, yay for the tube packaging!! It's a pet peeve of mine (and probably many others) that such good products are ruined by being in jar packaging. Now if only FF would consider putting his masks in tubes as well. One can only hope...
Anyway, I have very long damaged hair so I use about four or five peas and it makes my hair so soft and shiny. I found that it doesn't work as well when applied to wet hair, but maybe it's just me. I'm not crazy about the smell but it disappears quickly so it's not an issue at all. There are quite a few mixed reviews about it so I would reccomend trying out a sample first before buying.
i was lucky enough to swap for this. a little goes a long way so the 7 fl oz tube will last a lifetime! there isnt a strong scent. i use a nickle size dollop on towel dried hair and i'm out the door. leaves my hair shiny and soft not sticky or crunchy. helps slightly define my waves but not greasy (if you use too much you will look greasy). this is a nice product and i like it a lot.
This is to die for. I don't know what I did before this line came out (Aactually I do, I used Bed0Head after party). But this is GREAT, smoothes out my dry, processed hair and conditions it . It makes my hair silky and shiny. A little goes a long way, so don't be too concerned with the price because the tube will last you quite a while. It has a soft subtly scent. The whole glossing line is wonderful, try it all. I take this stuff everywhere! Use if in my hair wet or dry, straight or curly.
My hair is like living with a wild animal; occasionally it rests tamely on my head, but more often than not it's uncontrollable and terrifying. I colour my hair which doesn't help. Add in curls, frizz, humidity, blow dryers, and flat irons. The result is hair that looks like dry, dull straw. A small amount of this restores my hair to life, making it look like it's shining with health. An amazing product. I recommend it whole heartedly. Do be careful to use a small amount and distribute it evenly. You don't want to be like my friend who applied a large amount to the top of her hair only and looked like a 1950's greaser.
i have used this stuff for years, i use it on my wet hair before i straighten it with a blowdryer or flat iron, and i always get compliments on my hair, how shiny it is, and how healthy it looks, (i've never colored my hair) I did buy a small tube of it one time from my local bath and body works and i have to say i think it was sitting on the shelf for a long time because it smelled wierd like old product, so i always just get this from sephora, either online or in the store and have never had a problem. i repeatedly buy this hair cream more than any other hair product i use, it smells good too. it's one of the only hair products that i keep going back to. ;-)
I've been hooked on this stuff since I received a sample packet of it when it came out. I have always had frizzy hair and of all the products I've tried, this one actually works. It makes my hair softer, smoother, and more manageable. The price is kind of high, but I figured it's worth considering all the money I've wasted on stuff that didn't work and you don't need to use much product. I used to keep this in my medicine cabinet but the heat and/or humidity made it separate, so now I keep it out of the bathroom and no longer have that problem. The tube packaging is also great because it's easy to control how much product comes out and you can use every last bit. I only wish it didn't have so much shimmery particles in it, but I can live with it.
This product gets a big bright red A+ in my book. I have tried virtually every glossing cream and serum on the market with no success until this one. First off, it smells so natural and clean ( I hate perfumey hair products) and secondly it stops fly away's without leaving hair looking and feeling greasy! I use it on wet hair before drying and then again after I am done ironing my hair and as needed throughout the day. It is also great to moisturize elbows and knees in a pinch.
This is my HG hair product! I have been using it for the past 4 years on my thick, coarse hair that has enough wave to not be considered straight, but not wavy either. You only have to use the teeniest tiniest little bit so the tube lasts forever! My tube usually lasts me almost a year, so that makes the price tag worth it to me. You can use it on wet or dry hair, but mostly I use it when my hair is dry. If I flat iron my hair, I rub in a tiny bit on my hands then comb them through my hair to take the smoothness and glossiness to the next level. Or if I air dry, I use it to smooth out frizz and make what little wave I have more defined. If you're unsure, I'd recommend buying the travel size first. It's only $9 and will still last you at least a few months. I think you will love it though, this stuff is amazing!
While I love what this product does for my curly/wavy and fizzy hair, I don't know if it is completely worth the price. It relaxes and softens my hair giving me loose, calm waves with very little frizz. It smells wonderful as well! It's just that I have to use more than it says to for it to have any effect and it's going too fast for me to repurchase at $20 a bottle (just 4 oz).
*Update - It's been a while since I bought this bottle and it is lasting me longer than I previously anticipated. I will repurchase afterall!
**UPDATE #2** I decided to discontinue the use of this product despite it's effectiveness in frizz reduction. The reason is that it is full of silicones which result in product build-up in my hair. After a few uses of this consecutively, my hair looks greasy and limp and weighed down.
I love, love, love this product. I can't live without it. Which is funny, considering that I turned up my nose at it despite the urging of a friend who insisted repeatedly that I MUST try it because it is so AMAZING. I assumed it was just another high dollar over hyped designer product that is bought more for it's name than it's performance.
How wrong I was.
I have very thick hair and though it is straight, it can get coarse because I color often. In addition, I live in a high humidity climate, which of course, adds to the frizz factor. I needed something that would help my hair stay smooth and straight, but not leave it feeling weighed down and dirty. I absolutely hate it when I can feel the product in my hair. I like my hair to look and feel natural, which is really hard to achieve with all these "pastes" and "muds" and whatnot.
But this product is truly unique. Just a teensy weensy pea sized dollop of product leaves my hair silky, shiny and frizz resistant. There's no buildup, no weigh down. My hair looks and feels like hair, not like product.
It's easy to overdo this product and it might take a few tries to determine how much is right for you. But don't give up. I guarantee once you do, you'll never use anything else.
It seems expensive, but the last tube I used up (bought by me for my own Christmas stocking last year) lasted me a year (just bought another for my stocking this past Christmas). When you consider that it lasts a full twelve months even with everyday use...that's really not as costly as it initially seems.
Give this a try. It's truly an amazing product.
