My Views:

I started using hair serums about few years ago when I chemically straightened my hair-until then I didn’t even know why a serum is needed in life !. The hair expert who straightened my hair recommended i use the  Loreal’s Liss Ultime which was really good in terms of managing frizz & keeping the hair shiny throughout the day. When I ran out of my Liss Ultime , I got the L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum only for the sole reason it is cheaper and from the same brand! For the price, the quantity is a lot for a hair serum and it seems like it will last me till eternity.

It claims to be made of Argan oil which I heard is good for hair (I don’t know why but it is good!) The serum’s texture is as thick as oil but it is non-greasy and gets fully absorbed in a minute. It can be used on dry hair or wet hair as well.  I rarely use it on dry hair unless I want to style my hair with hot tools. I prefer using it on towel dried hair and I start from the roots since I have maximum frizzy hair near my crown and temple area . I work my way towards to the end.. Applying the serum on wet hair and waiting it to dry naturally before combing ensures the hair remains tangle free and you definitely see less breakage – full marks here! But controlling the frizzy hair, it is does not work that well. It controls the frizziness to an extent only and I still end up with fly-away’s  near the forehead.

Pros:

  1. Light serum does not weigh down my fine hair
  2. Gives glossy finish to the hair which stays on until the next hair wash
  3. Contains argan oil
  4. Helps in managing tangled hair
  5. Prevents hair breakage due to tangling

 

Cons:

  1. Not 100% effective in controlling hair frizz which is its ultimate job anyway!

Verdict: B

Price: 240 for 40 ml

Recommendation: L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum is a decent serum and works effectively in managing tangled hair after washing & which in turn helps in less hair breakage. It gives smooth & shiny hair but it is not very effective in controlling frizziness in the hair. If you are on a budget and does not have very frizzy hair then it is definitely worth buying. But if controlling hair frizziness is your goal then you can skip this!
