I bought this serum when I was going through a period of trying to straighten my hair. I failed as my hair is quite determined and fought back valiantly. My hair won and I think that it was correct as looking back at photos it didn't suit me anyway. I do still use a straightener at times but almost as controller for bits of my hair that are doing their own thing with regard to stying and I don't like it.
I also like a serum as my hair is curly and as such doesn't really shine so a bit of serum adds a touch of shine and also gives my dry hair a bit of moisturising too. If I don't look after my hair it has a tendency to get a bit dry and feels like horse hair which I am not so keen on. If we are out in the sun a lot this happens so after a holiday I need to give it lots of TLC. Serum is quite a small item to carry and an easy one to apply daily while we are away to try and protect my hair from the sun a little. The serum does protect against UV rays as well so is perfect for taking on holiday in the sun for me.

I do also dye my hair as I have an annoying patch of greying hair at the front. Dyeing does dry and damage my hair too so once again this serum helps with that dryness too.
PACKAGING
I don't know why they insist on putting the plastic bottle inside a silver cardboard with a plastic window so you can see the bottle inside. This seems excess to requirements and the plastic bottle with a lid over the pump would surely be adequate and cause less landfill. A cynic might suggest the extra packaging is to make the product look more expensive and bigger than it is in fact.


The plastic bottle is orange and comes with a press down pump dispenser. It is pretty thin and easy to hold. It is light and the 50ml bottle is okay to take in the hand luggage in a ziplock bag as it is less than 100ml.
It costs £6.29 from Boots but sometimes Boots have offers of two products for £??? or three products for the price of two so it is worth watching out for these offers. I also got Boots points by using my advantage card too.

USING THE SERUM
I use this in two ways. First I apply the serum to my hair when it is towel dried and before using the hair drier. This makes it much silkier feel I find and gives my hair a much softer and smoother look when dried. It doesn't make it any faster to dry but just gives a nice finish to my hair.
The second way I use this is after my hair is dried I squirt a bit into my hands, rub them together and then run my hands with serum on them through my dry hair. This gives the hair a bit of a sheen and also the subtle fragrance makes my hair have a nice sweet aroma too.

I find when I use the first method that I use two pumps of the bottle for my hair which is short but very thick. For the shine effect one pump is plenty as I don't want it looking greasy just shiny.
This serum is quite a thin oily consistency and not a thick oily gel like some I have. This is fine but you have to be aware otherwise it runs off your fingers and onto the floor. Use a little at a time to prevent this waste.

The serum seems to be full of chemical sounding names but it does have hydrolised silk and perfume that I recognise. Heaven knows what the rest of the ingredients are but they sound far from natural.
RECOMMENDED?
Yes, I find this is a light serum that doesn't weigh my hair down. I like the fact that it protects from UV rays as well as heat from hair drying and straighteners etc. I also like the fact that it has a pleasant but not overpowering scent. The fact that it is quite a thin runny oily texture means that it really is light and gives a lovely shine without being greasy looking on my hair.

My bottle is pretty near empty now as I took it away on out last holiday to the Galapagos and used it daily while at sea. I think it helped prevent too much drying of my hair and protected it well from the sun and sea. I have a few other serums on the go but this is one I would be happy to repurchase.
