I found this in the bottom or my product drawer, a miracle since there are so many unused products. :) This is the only serum that will help to straigthen my wavy bangs. I purchased the small size and will return to get the bigger one. I have a POB haircut and it also helps with the ends. I just wish it had a thermal protectant in it.

Holy grail hair product! Worth the price, lives up to the hype! Use this for sleek, smooth, glistening, soft hair with a lovely fruity sweet (but not overpowering) scent. Can use wet or dry for equally awesome results and it lasts forever because you only need a pump or two.

Smells great and works best when applied to wet hair. Kind of gets and feels oily overnight though.

This is my HG styling product. I have long, wavy hair that tends to frizz. I live in a humid climate which definitely does not do my hair any favors. I have consistently used this product since I was 19 and I will continue to do so. It cuts my drying time in half, which is a feat in and of itself since I do not own a nice hairdryer and my hair holds tons of water. It also double duties and smoothes my hair and fixes my split ends. The scent is very fresh and clean. I like that the bottle also is clear and has a pump so it is easy to dispense and you can see how much product you have left. The only downside is that its not a travel friendly bottle, but that problem is easily solved using separate travel containers.

My HG smoothing serum! Have used this product for years now. The smell of this is absolutely amazing. You can use this product on dry or wet hair, I use it on both. I put two pumps through my hair when it is wet after I get out of the shower, and if I am blow-drying will put one more pump throughout my hair to smooth out frizz once my hair is dry. Makes hair smell great, makes hair super shiny and very soft. A great product. It is a professional salon product, so it is on the pricier side. However, it is worth every penny and definitely splurge worthy!

So last year I was at my friends house and she was straightening my hair, and she used this, after straightening my hair, it was soooo soft, I remember going to school and people complementing me about how soft my hair was. So later on I got the product, and used it basically ever time I styled my hair, and it made my hair look shiny and soft, and I have really damaged dry hair! I love this product so much, it is about $18 where I buy it, I go to any salon near my house and they may cell it at cvs! It is amazing

In my ongoing quest for sleek, smooth, shiny hair, I got the Super Skinny Serum after reading the reviews here and from the recommendation of the sales people at the hair care boutique where I buy my hair goodies.
The price tag is pretty hefty considering the amount of product but this is supposed to be justified because you only need a tiny bit of the serum. (my overall rating would be 4.5 lipsticks) With the Super Skinny Serum, this is true; I need just a tiny dollop for my long, layered hair. (my hair is about 3-4 inches past my shoulders and colour treated)
I don't use it as a heat protectant so I can't rate how well it performs in that area. It does leave my hair feeling smooth and silky and tames the flyaways after blow drying or flat ironing. (my main use for it)
A little goes a long way otherwise it can make your hair look greasy if you use too much.

The smell is a bit strong but not unpleasant and dissipates shortly. The texture is similar to other serums I've tried (Garnier Fructis and L'Oreal) but this one seems a bit lighter, for me anyways.

As always, I'm on the lookout for a cheaper alternative but in the meantime, this one is just perfect.

This is some pretty good stuff. I've had the 4 oz bottle for about a year and half and it's barely halfway done. I use it every time I wash my hair, about 3-4 times a week, and sometimes when my hair gets a bit frizzy. There are cheaper serums on the market but I haven't been able to find a better one for a lesser price. I have long thick wavy hair and it works for me great.

I used this for a long long time until I found other ones that are far cheaper and work better for my hair personally. This is great stuff, but it isn't the best. I found the John Frieda one much better and personally I think this stuff is way overpriced. If it was in the Frieda range I would say 5 lippies, but no.

I expect more from something of this cost, nearly $20. I love Frieda's and Organix glass serums, they do the exact same thing but better IMO. Also cost 3 times less. I have very very thick, curly/wavy, coarse, and long hair. I need something that seriously works and this stuff just didn't hold up to the others. Save your money and go for the John Frieda one or the Organix Glass serums.
