I'm a bit of a product junkie, and therefore I have about 6 serums of this type that I rotate between. I find I don't reach for this one very often, so I guess I'm not in love with it. I've had my little bottle for a couple of years now and it's still half full. That said, I try not to use silicone based serums every single time I wash my hair as I think they tend to build up on my fine hair (oily scalp, dry ends the worst of both worlds). Yeah, so why do I have 6 of them? Good question...I guess I"m on the search for "the one".
I do think it smoothes the hair very well and leaves a nice fruity scent. and looking very shiny. It can weigh my hair down though, so I use it very sparingly.

I have tried many brands of smoothing serums and this is a winner! I have long highlighted hair and I can't stop running my fingers through it now. This makes it so soft and smooth and very little "grease" factor. I can still go another day or two without washing with this one.

I love this product! I have been using it for years now and still love it! I apply it to my hair after I shower and I can let it air dry or blow dry it, in the winter months I may have to use more or apply some after I blow dry it, but I love it, my hair is silky, shiney, no frizz, no fly aways and I like the smell, not to overpowering. This is a "must have" in your styling product case.

I bought this at the recommendation of my hair stylist and I am glad I did. It is a light-weight and effective hair smoother. I use it any time I heat style, whether it be hot rollers or a HAI iron. I use a teeny tiny bit rub my hands together (then rub lightly on a towel) and put the product through my ends and style as usual.
This little bottle lasts forever. so when I run out in like 50 years I will definitely re-purchase.

I have finally found a serum to run through my hair before I blow dry! I got the rec. from my hair stylist to use this and she was right on the money! My hair is so easy to blow dry now, this serum makes it silky and smelling great!!!
I can normally find these products at Trade Secret for a BOGO! :D

I love the way this smells. It leaves my hair silky soft. I use this with a few drops of the blow silk before i blow dry my hair. Then I add this to my hair before I use my straighening iron. A little goes a long way. If you use to much your hair might feel greasy. I would recommend this product.

Best stuff ever for an effortless blow out. It makes your brush glide thru your hair like it was silk. I tend to only use it half way doen the hair shaft b/c my roots get oilt, but this stuff works.

I purchased this for my little girls naturally curly hair and I love it. This product has a soft smell and works wonders. I apply this after we towel dry her hair. Her curls don't frizz and are shiny and bounce. I use this as well when I want to do a super straight blow out. It never leaves my hair weighed down. A little goes a very long way,so use sparingly.

Ok, total hair product junkie here, and this is definately one of my fav serums. I use it on my hair when I blow dry or air dry. I use it about half way through when I am blow drying my hair straight...when my ends are still kind of damp, and before I curl the ends with my ceramic barrel brush. This leaves my hair shiny, less frizzy, and helps smooth out my damaged ends. I love the smell, too, it does not linger or overpower you, though. You only need a tiny bit, and it really does make a difference in my hair.

Well. echh. tried it this morning and it is nothing spectacular. I got betther results with CHI silk infusion only that Kiwi Smells a lot better. Will be returning to Trade Secret for something else.

Just your typical shine serum, as far as I'm concerned. No special weightlessness, and I can buy the same thing from Citre Shine for a lot less.

Well, I am not really thrilled. Not an HG here. This is a good basic serum but hasn't extraordinary properties. I use it mainly when I straighten my hair and it seems to add some shine to my hair... but most hair serums will provide the same shiny effect. Good product but I am pretty sure I could find something cheaper and more efficient.
I like the fact that it's not heavy nor sticky. It has a light consistency and a light fruity smell. Doesn't really smell like kiwi though.
The bottle seems sooooo tiny. I am pretty sure I will use it up quickly (even if I don't use a ton of this serum - only a few drops, then I rub my hands together and apply it when my hair is still damp). Anyway, I will use it up but won't be purchasing this serum again. I prefer to try something else next time!

Hands down the best hair product out there. The scent is a very light, kiwi smell and this doesn't weigh your hair down or make it look greasy like Biosilk. I would recommend this is EVERYONE out there. It's a great staple of mine.

Kudos to my hair stylist for introducing me to Kiwi Blow Silk. She taught me to mix one part Blow Silk with about three parts of Kiwi Blow Serum in the palm of my hand and apply it to my hair before blowing it dry. I end up with wonderfully soft, straight hair. I agree with other posters that a little bit goes a long way. Using too much of this product, especially without using a clarifying shampoo every once in a while, can lead to silicon build-up and dry, brittle hair. The little bottle lasts me a few months, which makes the price seem fairly reasonable.

I love this stuff! I received it as an extra in a swap and I am now on the hunt to purchase it. It reminds me of Silk Therapy. I apply a very small amount while my hair is still wet, mostly to my ends, before blowdrying. The smell is amazing and it doesn't weigh my baby fine hair down; just leaves me with a soft and smooth finish.

I bought this because I was looking for a light-weight serum for my fine, straight hair that frizzes in humidity. This was simply way too heavy. By mid-day my hair looked greasy. It made my hair limp and lifeless, and I need to keep every bit of volume I have. The amount I used was only about half of a dime, too, applied to the last quarter of my wet hair before drying.
This would probably work great for someone with normal hair. But for my baby fine hair, it's just too much. It does smell great, though, and the packaging is terrific. My search for a light-weight defrizzer continues.

In general, I like this serum and bought it because of the reviews here. I can tell a difference when I use it. I think I am going to try PM Skinny Serum next.

Like all non-water-soluble silicone products, this makes my hair very dry and brittle if I use it on a regular basis. However, for occasional smoothing on humid days or when I really need my hair to stay sleek, it's great. I apply it to damp hair, brush it through, and blow dry with a round brush.

This is a really good serum. My hair is thick, curly, highlighted, and dry, and this serum feels moisturizing my hair. My hair really sucks it up and becomes shiny, soft, and helps to keep my ends flat and frizz free. I really love to use this serum for flatironing my hair bone straight. It's very concentrated. A dime size is all I need; anymore than that, and I feel greasy. The smell is alright to me. I'm not crazy about it. Also, I think it's sort of expensive at $11.95 for 2oz (that's what I paid) when I can buy other highend serums and heat protectants at the same price for 4oz of product, but it's okay because with the Kiwi Blow Silk - a tiny bit really does go a long long way. UPDATE: I think I will save this for humid days or special events when I absolutely need the control on frizzies w/ super straight styles. This darkens my hair color and highlights and make them look dull. I'll stick to my PM Super Skinny Serum. I like that one better.
