The only reason why someone wouldn't like this product is if it's counterfeit...I guarantee that because of product diversion (it's a huge problem in the company right now) that if you buy ANY Paul Mitchell product outside of a licensed professional, that the product is counterfeit, old, or stolen. Paul Mitchell will NEVER guarantee a product that wasn't purchased from a salon licensed to carry PM products. And if someone didn't like this (or any Paul Mitchell product, for that matter), it's only because you're not using it correctly. PM is hands-down the best line for hair and skincare out there. Without a doubt.
This was my first experience with Paul Mitchell and I'm not sure there will be another one. I've used drug store brand shampoo/conditioner my whole life and have never actually came across anything that was BAD. I had high hopes for this "designer" shampoo and was highly disappointed. It doesn't really lather, so you have to use a lot a lot of it to get even a tiny bit of bubbles. I think I will stick to the drug store brands from now on and save my money...
I love it. Excellent for frizzy, thick and coarse hair. Will use this over and over again. It leaves my hair smooth and soft. My hair dries out a lot faster too. I just love Paul Mitchell products.
I really really like this. Its the only shampoo there really is that where after I use the shampoo (No conditioner yet) it feels like I could brush through it. It makes my hair soft and usually I have stray hairs at the top of my head that have broken off but after using this line, those hairs are smoothed at the top of my head. I noticed a difference after the first use!
Smells good. That is the only reason I gave it 2 stars. This whole line makes me feel like I have crisco on my hair or something. I don't like.
So far all the PM products I have used I really like. I love the super skinny serum... cuts my dry time by like 15 min! i have really thick coarse hair. I love to switch things up btw this any Fekkai's Glossing Shampoo and Cond. FYI: if you buy this product or any other "salon" product at places like CVS, target, walgreens etc. you are not getting the real product. Only liscened/approved stores carry these types of things... if you visit PM's website you can find a list of places in your area that do... if you buy it at a location that isn't on there then there is a very good chance that you are not getting the original product (this goes for high end makeup too) Just a heads up
I used the super skinny line years ago, then I switched to DevaCurl. now that my hair is shorter it doesnt look good curly so I tried this again to soften it.
what I love the best is the low lather.. which we all know, the lather ingredients is what dries your hair out. many high end shampoos are lower lathering than store bought stuff.
and the scent..yum!
I use this with the daily treatment and skinny serum. it has made my hair noticeably less curly, which I love. havent really noticed difference in drying time but my thick ass hair always takes forever to dry. I would repurchase this again..
Product is tooo expensive and didn't do anything at all but dryed my hair, I don't like it when you put in your wet hair and massage into scalp there are no bubles! that is not a good product... I have think and course hair I deffently to not reccomend this product to anyone that has thick and course hair....
CRAP..Might as well take some wax and pour it on your head because that's the feeling my hair had after using the shampoo and conditioner. Was Paul on a crack binge when he let this stuff get put on the shelves? Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of alot of his products, but they need to go back to the drawing board with super skinny...
Let me start off by saying that I am a stylist myself, but have never been too much of a fan of PM products. But I used the Super Skinny Serum on a client one day, and her hair came out wonderfully, and it smelled like apple jolly ranchers! I am not somebody who is bothered by strong smelling products, and in fact I like them, because I am a smoker, and I like to use things with a strong scent to cover up the smoke smell. Anyway, another girl I work with recommended I try this after I inquired about it, she said it really tames curls and, as a bonus, it also has that same green apple scent. I was sold.
I have normal textured hair, not at all fine, but not what you'd call thick, but I have a LOT of it. I blow dry and flat iron almost every day, because when left to air dry, my hair has a very strange, half wavy-half pin straight texture, and tends to be frizzy. It is, however, in fairly good condition, because I work hard to keep it that way, and I ALWAYS use professional products, keep up on my trims, etc. etc.
As other reviewers have mentioned, this hardly lathers. I use a little bit and work it into my hair, then rinse, and repeat. The conditioner works wonderfully to detangle, and actually, the shampoo doesn't leave my hair feeling tangled at all, which is nice, and the smell is fabulous. Those are the only redeeming qualities this product has. I got a conditioning treatment last Friday which a product with an extremely strong scent. Today is Monday night, and 3 shampoos later, and I can still smell the aforementioned conditioning treatment...which doesn't say much for the cleansing quality of the product. It didn't cut down on my drying time at all and, as a matter of fact, made it longer, I think. My hair feels greasy while I'm blowdrying and only feels normal after I have flat ironed it and am completely done with my hair. I will say that during the day, my hair feels nice, and there is definitely no frizz, and it doesn't feel greasy at all, only while I'm blowdrying. I will obviously need to use a clarifying treatment under the dryer, and I will be tossing both the shampoo and conditioner in the trash. For me, another PM product that I absolutely hate.
