I was excited to try this product, although I admit I assumed it was going to be an "all talk, no results" situation. I was wrong. I'll start off by saying I have VERY long hair, past my waist, and I am an avid buyer of hair products, especially smoothing serums, etc. and I have tried a LOT of different products promising one thing or another with some positive results and some not so positive. The Promend Smoothing Shine Serum has definitely given me a POSITIVE experience. I use Promend Straightening Lotion on my damp hair; blow dry with a round brush, and use a small amount (that's all you need, trust me) of the Smoothing Shine Serum all over and brush through, then go. My hair is shiny and smooth with no fly-aways, which I found pretty amazing since I ALWAYS have Fly-aways. To sum it up, I will recomend this product to anyone who asks. Good Job NEXXUS!
