Very bummed about this. Like a review I read below, I feel like I used a different product than everyone else. I originally was interested after seeing several beauty gurus on YouTube sing it's praises; however I've learned not to let those opinions alone be the deciding factor, especially for something as expensive as this. But, the reviews here on makeupalley were just as good so I gave it a go. Here's my experience:
The product itself was very sticky. I felt like I needed to wash my hands several times to get it off. Then when I touched my hair, I felt the need to wash my hands AGAIN. After blow drying hair, my hair felt like the end of a broom stick. (mind you, my hair is naturally very oily!) It gave my hair sort of the texture of using too much hair spray. I didn't like it at all.
I'm glad this product worked well for so many other people; however it's not for everyone, and definitely not for me!
Great product, makes hair shiny and silky, but doēs not make it oily. Great for long hair. Has very nice, fresh scent.
Love it! I just repurchased after my first bottle and can definitely compare the difference between using this when blow-drying/heat styling and not using it/using a different product. - It speeds up the blow-drying process and Im actually surprised that my hair really does seem to dry a lot faster when using this. - It leaves hair soft and manageable and has a great light scent. - It doesn't weigh my hair down and allows it to still move while controlling frizz, and I dont feel as though I need to use any anti-frizz or shine serum afterwards. As a reference, I have naturally straight hair, which is a LITTLE on the fine side so that it can frizz up a little bit, I haven't coloured it in a very long time so it's all my natural dark brown/black hair, but I have started blow-drying and straightening with a GHD and do so probably about 4 times a week.
wow..just used this for the first time and im already in love. i have fairly long unruly hair and this left me with lovely soft hair.i made sure to detangle with a comb before blowdrying (which i find helps) and then lightly brushed it out after i was done. it smells great too
definitely worth the splurge since you only use half a pea sized amount each time =)
Wow, this stuff really does what it says it will - give you silky, touchable tresses. I picked this up after putting away my Super Skinny Serum, which as of late has been making my hair kind of greasy by the end of the day (I'm Italian, so I have to wash my hair daily anyway). This packaging is the same as SSS, but the product is more of a lotion-serum than a straight serum. The smell is delicious, and my hair doesn't feel weighed down. The only problem is that this does nothing for volume - of course, the packaging doesn't say it will, but the slippery-smoothness of your hair can make it a bit limp as well.
I really enjoyed this product, it helped with keeping my hair tamed when I blow dried it. It leaves your hair silky and smooth and it protects it too! I would deffinatly buy it again, even though the price isnt so nice.
I purchased this along with Redken's "Iron Silk" spray after a haircut a while ago. My stylist said I could use just these 2 products and that's it. They were expensive - more than I can really afford to spend on hair products - but this has lasted me a long time & isn't close to be used up yet.
I use this with a tiny bit of cheap serum on my ends and it does help my hair to dry faster. I hate the fact that I have to blowdry every time I wash my hair if I want it to look nice (otherwise it gets wonky and frizzy, not to mention it's super thick so it takes a looong time to air dry) but this helps speed up the drying time and so also cuts down on damage. It also makes my hair softer and a little smoother than blowdrying with just serum.
This is almost one of those products that you don't know has become a staple until you forget to use it one day. I take it for granted for sure, but when I don't use it, I miss it. I don't know if I'll repurchase, if I did it would be only for the quick-drying benefits because I find serum does enough for smoothness and softness. But I doubt I could find a drug store hair product that is this specialized, so I just may shell out for it again!
On my second bottle. Love this product. Have fairly unruly hair. (half curly) and it leaves my hair soft sleek and shiny. Also feels less bulky. Fab
Wow. I feel like I bought a completely different product than the one reviewed by the majority of the reviewers. I really disliked this product on several levels. First, the fragrance is simply horrific. It is a very sharp, perfume-y scent, very similar to Clinique's 'Happy' perfume (which gives me a major headache - so cheap smelling). Second, it dryed my hair, dulled the shine, and made my hair a bit tangly (and my hair NEVER tangles). It did not make my hair soft in the slightest. I believe I bought it for approximately $15 (5 oz). A definite no buy for me.
I have long, thick, halfway-down-my-back dyed blonde hair and I'm fanatical about keeping it in top condition to continue my 6-8weekly assault by blonde dyes/foils etc.
I got this on recommendation by my hairdresser and I LOVE it!
I use it every time I wash my hair, whether I blow-dry or not. I find if I don't use it, I can really tell, my hair isn't as manageable and needs washing sooner. (how does that work?!)
I let my hair dry naturally for about 20 minutes before I apply one pump then brush. One pump is all you need... The bottle lasts ages! I usually don't put any other products in my hair, maybe a serum for shine if I'm going out but thats it.
