I have very fine, thin hair and this made my hair look limp and oily. I was not impressed with this product at all..I think I will use it when I am at the pool around our house but I won't go out with this in my hair..maybe its just because of my particuliar hair type, but it made my hair look dirty.

Alright

Didn't see a big difference, but maybe I'm just used to the serums I currently use. Maybe would work better for people who have a 'stronger' dye in their hair and would like to seal that in more. Might have considered purchasing this for a long-run trial if I was still Jean-Grey Red or Beach Blond...

Great concept, Oily product
Sampled

I love the idea of protecting my hair from sun, etc. (I color, plus my hair is thick, but fine). Unfortunately, applying this product on towel-dry hair and then blow-drying left me with greasy locks.

Just another silicone serum. After one year on Birchbox, I have enough of those to last a lifetime.

I don't use silicon based hair care products except for the couple of times a year that I straighten my curly hair, and this product isn't geared toward that. It's definitely not going to do anything good for me, might be great for others.

Oily alert!

I just tried this in freshly-washed and dried hair and it made it so oily and greasy! Very disappointed in this product. I won't be using it again.

Not sure

Product is not bad. It has no smell, which I wish that it did. The directions also say to use three pumps of this for your hair. I have very long hair and three pumps would not cover a portion of my hair,

UV Protection

I did not like this product because I was sent the wrong box and this product does not really fit my profile. I do not have color treated hair and I don't use alot of hair products. It does not smell bad and I will use it for when I am in the sun for long periods of time, but usually I like the sun to lighten my hair in the summer time.

No different

Except for an ingredient (and who knows what % of the "special" ingredient is actually in there), this product is no different than any of the other anti-frizz, give-me-shine, smooth-my-hair products....I've tried waaay too many...from Birchbox and beyond and they're all pretty much the same thing...just different packaging and claims, but underneath it all it's just the same old same old!
