This hair serum promises to make your hair silky and smooth and it works by coating your hair. This would be good for anyone who suffers from split ends or frizz as it smooths the cuticle of the hair, making these problems less noticeable.

I have wavy hair that is not chemically treated in anyway but it needs washing every day and since I don't have the time to blow dry, I needed something to make it dry by itself without any frizz.
My boyfriend picked up some of the Super Smooth Shampoo at the hairdressers when I was complaining that I wanted my hair to be smoother, since then I've become an addict to the range! After trying the shampoo (with alot of success I have to say!), I tried the serum. This cost me £11.85 from the hairdressers but it can be bought for less on e-bay (however, be careful as there are some sellers who are selling fake bottles of the stuff).

The serum itself is a clear, lovely smelling, slightly oily formula and you will need very little as it is very concentrated. I have medium thickness shoulder length hair and one pump is just the right amount for me. Once I've pumped out a small amount I rub it in my hands and then apply firstly to the tips of my hair and then the roots. It is important to apply it in this order as the consistency of the serum is quite thick and if it is applied to the roots first it is likely to leave the roots greasy and the ends, which really need the moisture, dry. This hair serum works best when put on damp hair but can also be used on dry hair for the odd fly away hair if needed.

In the past I've used alot of hair serums and products including products from Nicky Clarke, Trevor Sorbie and Charles Worthington and this is by far the best. It leaves my waves defined without making them look or feel rock solid and, it leaves my hair soft and manageable and definetly helps to protect my hair when I do use the hairdryer or straighteners. Despite the rather scary price tag, this product lasts for ages and is well worth it. I've had one bottle for 7 months, it is not even half empty yet and I use it every day. When compared to how long some serums last and how much they cost, this works out much cheaper in the long run.

This products cost can vary but is usually around £10-£13 for 150mls and is available from salons only but can be bought on ebay or other internet sites for a better price.

Thanks for reading!

This is one of the few serums that I haven't tried to calm my unruly frizzy hair! Good review and I'll definitely be taking a look at this :-))
