I've had this a couple years now and have only just reviewed it lol. I only use this when my hair is wet and before blowdrying as I find my hair is softer when I use it when wet.
Think it's just an alright serum rly, Does seem greasy though when you apply, only use one pump which does fly everywhere so you have to put your hand right next to the pump, maybe because my hair is fine it's greasy the nest day so don't use it very often xxx
After reading all of the wonderful reviews on this product I was delighted to find it for $2.00/bottle at a discount grocery store. I bought 2 bottles and have used it 3 times. I normally use CitreShine serum but am looking for something with more punch (my hair is waaaay frizzy!). Anyway the L'Oreal serum was easy to distribute through my thick hair and smelled nice but it only worked maybe 1/2 as well as CitreShine.
On a positive note I think I'll go back to that store and buy several bottles to sell on Ebay! :o)
I bought this back when I flatironed often and wanted something to prevent frizzies and protect my hair from the heat. It is very runny and messy and is basically a blend of oil and water in my opinion. It does not do anything any other oil or serum cannot do. In fact, whenever I airdry with this it makes my thick wavy hair even fuzzier than if I had used nothing. I will not be repurchasing.
I have tried a lot of serums in an attempt to make my fine, wavy/curly hair frizz-free and not loaded down with gloop. This is definitely the best serum I have ever used. It's a really light, almost runny texture which is nowhere near as heavy or gloopy as other serums. I use 3 pumps on my towel-dried hair and then add more to my hair when it's dry, if needed. My waves are left tamed, non-frizzy and look better than with any other product I know. I haven't tried the Kerastase version of this product yet, although I find it hard to believe that it will be so much better than this product, which costs half the price.
Like most other poeple, i think that this is the best serum ever! I started using it after i read in a magazine that Ken Paves uses this on Eva Longoria. I love her hair so i tried it right away .. I loved it! I can't believe that they d/s it! i think that we should start a petition or soemthing so that they will bring it back because no other serum does the job like this one. UPDATE:I suggest that anyone who loves this serum try Thermasilk leave in conditioner.. i think i like it better then this serum now.
I love this stuff and have been in tears since it was discontinued. I had everyone I know looking for it, including my best guy friend. I finally ordered two bottles off eBay and can now wear my hair down again. I've been putting it in a low ponytail because no other serum (and I've tried them all, drugstore to high-end) gets my hair so smooth and sleek.
I've never really been a big fan of serums for some reason but thought id try this after all the rave reviews. Ive been bleaching my hair for years so it honestly represents straw when left to dry naturally & causes the boyfriend a great laugh. The first time I tried it I think I applied wrong & ended up with limp greasy roots and not much else. Undeterred I thought id give it another go. How glad was I as this stuff is amazing. I used 2 pumps then rough dried it getting ready to then run the irons through as usual but for the first time EVER the straightners did not need make an appearance. I was gobsmacked. Ive since tried the cream version & get pretty similar results but now cant seem to buy it anywhere. Have noticed our cousins across the pond have said they now cant find the serum either so will definitely be stocking up as they must be discontinuing it. NOOOOOOO
I loved this serum, but was discontinued a while ago. It made my hair smooth, shiny and frizz free. They should have added this to the new revamped Vive line, but oh well.
tried this as it has such great reviews here, plus I have liked the poo/condish in this line. But OMG I was soooooooo disappointed in the serum. The only good thing I can say is that I love the smell... it made my hair go dry, and gave me an intcy, greasy scalp. I also ended up with HORRIBLY tangled hair, and that is REALLY unusual for me. Normally it never gets tangles, and I only had a trim a week or so ago. I will not be repurchasing.
This product does not cause unhealthy hair. Of course, when you use any serums or silicone products, you will have to be aware of buildup, but there is almost no product out there that you can use daily without buildup! That's what clarifying shampoos are for. I use a clarifying shampoo every other wash and have never had a problem with serums. This one is fantastic and I have two extra bottles waiting when I finish the one I'm using. It's light and very effective in getting rid of frizzies. People should be clarifying much more often then they do, if you ask me. That's why they claim that product is magically "no longer effective" after awhile! It's because it's building up on the hair and can't do anything anymore. Buy this; it's great!
