I have absolutely fallen in love with this brand. A little more pricey, but good. My hair is naturally curly and very dry. This product makes my hair feel hydrated, healthy, and soft. Love it! Are there other, more affordable alternatives? Of course!! And I’ve actually reviewed quite a few! If you don’t mind spending the money, I don’t think you’d be disappointed with this! ...read more

It smells terrific and does an awesome job of keeping your hair from frizzing without making it too oily . The key is to only use a tiny bit, rub it between your hands, and then apply from the under layers of your hair up through the rest, staying an inch or so away from your roots and focusing on the ends. It smells fantastic (all day), and really does the job. Definitely give it a try! I've tried lots of defrizzers... and this is my current favorite. This works without weighing down your hair and doesn't leave it looking greasy like the oils. I use it daily before blow drying and to give my straight hair that extra little bit of smoothness it needed. ...read more

It does what it says I have pretty damaged hair and it's way too dry no matter what I do it looks dull but I started using this product it shows the effectiveness. The packaging is good, the smoothness it gives to my hair is beyond amazing I absolutely love this product. ...read more

Kérastase Nutritive Oleo Relax Hair Oil Serum helps smooth out rough, dry hair and detangles. It might be a little heavy for finer hair types, but we’d say don’t go overboard when applying (a little goes a long way!) and focus on dry areas since it does contain oils.

have long, parched, damaged, fine, thin hair from using box dye to lighten it. Have been spending more money now that I have it to go get it done to keep it healthy, and have been spending more money on hair products. This is the 5th Kerastase product I've used and I've loved them all. This one did not disappoint. It's very light, but goes a very long way and has practically save my split hairs and frizz. I've found that with longer hair I need much more product, causing things to run out quickly, but this you only need to use two pumps of this stuff per use -- this deluxe sample size bottle will last me for another month or so FOR SURE. Definitely worth the more expensive price tag -- try other kerastase products too, they're to die for. My favorite for dry damaged hair is the Bain force architecte line. From that line, my favorite is the ciment thermique, which literally stopped my hair from breaking further. ...read more

I don't even know where to start with this product. I love it so much. Every time my hair looks a little dry I always add some of this product and it just makes my hair super shinny and soft, almost like that just flat ironed look and texture. One squirt does go a long way even if you do use it on a daily basis I have had mine over 3 months! ...read more

Avon Advance Techniques Dry Ends Hair Serum helps to protect hair with pro-vitamin B, and gives you about 65 percent less frizz after using. We can get on board with that.

I love love love how soft this makes my hair. I have very fine hair and have always had trouble finding products that didn't make my hair look oily. I tried this on a special and fell in love. I apply to damp hair and I can instantly feel a difference. And it's still soft the next day. I would definitely recommend this products to others. ...read more

Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Serum seals and smooths frayed strands. Plus, it cuts your drying time so you get silky hair in a flash.

Ahhh! I love this serum so much! I have such a love for Paul Mitchell products in general but this is definitely a can't live without kind of product! I use this for just about any hair problem I have- If I have frizzies after I have my hair styled or I have been outside I take a little squirt about the size of a tac and rub it through my hands and hit all my frizzies. I take a dime size amount after I wash my hair and it's still damp and distribute it throughout my hair focusing on the ends and than blow dry it and it cuts my blow dry in half and helps with frizz. This product is a serum so be careful not to use too much or you will get a greasy scalp very quick. I have hair to the middle of my back and I only use a dime size for my whole head. After I have straightened my hair I take a tac size amount and distribute it about my hair focusing on the ends and top to keep my baby hairs from poking up. This serum gives my straight hair such shine and keeps me from getting frizz. I use this serum for any style I have and always have it with me when I travel in case of any extra hair problems. I consider this a holy grail product when it comes to my hair products and will continue to purchase this; the price is just like any other Paul Mitchell product and does what it says. Great job Paul Mitchell, as usual! ...read more
