Best serum there is for dry, brittle or damaged hair – layer it with other products to reduce frizz and split ends
I won a free sample bottle of this 5 years ago and ever since then, I cannot live without it! Both my husband and I have long hair with mine nearly to my waist. Even though we don’t use heat to style our hair, the normal damage from brushing & combing adds up. When you have long hair, even with proper brushes and combs, you tend to stretch the hair as you comb it out wet and further stretch when you brush during styling. The result is split ends, fragile hair and the need for frequent trims. We have found that applying the Super Skinny Serum to towel dried hair and then letting it sit for 5 to 10 minutes makes comb-outs much easier and less damaging if you use a proper wide-tooth comb. You can also use on dry hair to eliminate frizzies on a humid day- put a dime sized amount in your palms, rub your hands together and then lightly touch your hair from the ends up to the roots, running your fingers through the hair as we go. Then lightly brush your hair and pat the top side from the part to the ends with what little remains on your hair.The only way you can go wrong with this product is to over-apply it. A little goes a very long way when your hair is dry. When wet, you can get away with using more. The product is easy to use but very slippery. You will have to towel off your hands after using it or wash them. The fragrance is fruity and pleasant but light enough not to clash with your cologne or perfume. I prefer to use this on damp hair in place of a leave-in conditioner. Once hair is dry, I useKenra Platinum Silkening Mist 5.3 oz.instead of another round of of serum. The silkening mist is lighter, tames flyaways better and does not look greasy. If you have had problems with greasy hair using the Super-Skinny Serum, try using my method: Super-skinny serum on damp hair, Kenra Silkening mist on dry hair. When you combine the two products, you get a nice layered control of frizz. I then further treat my hair once a week or once every two weeks with a hot oil treatment. Using all three of these products together can go a long ways towards ridding you of split ends, frizzies and breakage. if you really still have problems with frizzies on your part line, use a tiny dab of hair wax or dread loc wax very lightly on your finger tips and then pat super gently in the sides of your part – that will lock down the short stick-ups without weighing down the rest of your hair. If you resort to layering on a humectant, you’ll have heavy, greasy hair. Carol’s Daughter makes some nice hair waxes for that purpose and no, you don’t have to be African-American to need hair wax on your parts!One added caution – The Super Skinny Serum will coat your hair. That’s how it makes comb-thru so much easier. If you don’t wash your hair everyday or every other day, the build-up of product on your hair can start to look dull and greasy. If you only wash a couple or a few times a week, consider using a clarifying shampoo or one that is specifically forumalted to address styling product build-up on the hair. ANother added problem is that the serum seems attract dust and air pollution particles. My husband washes his hair every day but doesn’t shampoo but every other day. He likes to rinse out any of the dust that using a serum like this can attract. At least use a clarifying shampoo once a week to get rid of the excess product and you’ll be golden!
No More Frizz
I love most Paul Mitchell hair products. I can use this balm on wet and dry hair, so it’s convenient. My Hispanic hair is wavy and difficult. This product tames it quite nicely. Amazon once again does a fair job with pricing.
Go to product for frizzy days
My sister-in-law is a manager at a Saks salon and recommended this product to me. I’ve been using it for 4 years now. It’s great on days I don’t have time to do my hair, just keeps my intense frizz in check. However, it’s not sticky and does not dry or flake in an unnatural gel-like way. Very good product, although I’m thinking of trying out Frizz-Ease for a cheaper alternative.
This Stuff Really Works!!
I have pretty unruly curly hair but have straightened it ever since the first Chi hit the market! Waaaay back then, I got hooked on the Phytodéfrisant Botanical (Phyto) Relaxing Balm. I’ve tried nearly every product that’s out there but always went back to Phyto. Well, this Super Skinny Balm actually works better AND it’s much cheaper! It’s not sticky at all, nor does it weigh your hair down. LOVE IT!!
It does seem to bind the hair together so you don’t have that frizzy look but still a lot of volume.
