        I use this on days when I air dry my hair. Which these days is almost everyday. This product helps smooth my hair and keeps the frizz down. It makes my hair look much better on these days. It is as good as people say. Where have I been?

          I put this product along with my leave in conditioner on my damp than I style it, i it really does leave your hair shiny, manageable,frizz free and long-lasting hair style. What I like about potion 9 also its that it doesn't make your hair hard neither is it stick it's very light.

                    Comments about Sebastian Potion 9:

                    This product was recommended to me by a friend who uses all Sebastian products. I had been looking for a product to put in my just washed hair (naturally wavy) that I could let air dry. I need to save time getting ready in the morning, and didn't want to use the flat iron everyday.

                    I was skeptical. I hate my natural hair texture and figured this would be another waste of product. But I took myself to Ulta and purchased the trial size...because I wasn't forking out almost 20 bucks for what I was sure would be another dead end.

                    This product has saved my life. After washing my hair I apply this all over my hair (except my roots because it will make me greasy) and scrunch with my fingers. Spray a little hairspray and out the door. From a person who used to spend almost an hour blow drying and then flat ironing my hair....to now only 5 minutes to look presentable. Dries and turns my waves into gentle soft curls.

                    Only cons is the price and that I have to use more than the directions say. I don't mind either though, because it has saved me so much time everyday in my getting ready routine.

                    Try it, you won't regret it.

                          I rub this in my hair after washing and conditioning, right before blow drying my hair. Love the way it makes my hair feel. I have naturally curly, thick, absorbent hair.

                          I put this on my towel dried hair and brush it through. I don't like to blow dry or fuss too much - my hair is lucky to get brushed every day, but this product leaves it softly styled and frizz free

                              They are both leave-in conditioners; the Potion 9 Lite was created for finer hair textures as it is more lightweight.

                              This product provides flexible hold and will not make hair feel stiff. Apply Potion 9 cream to damp/towel-dried hair or dry hair. Blow or air dry for silky, touchable looks. Or use hot tools for refined curls. On dry hair, reapply to add texture and control. Apply anytime for an instant style boost.

                              If you have very straight, fine hair, Potion 9 may be too heavy. It is most often used to help smooth out the hair, not make waves.

                              We recommend Texture Maker, which is good for helping to define any natural texture in the hair. Since this product is lightweight, you won’t run the risk of weighing hair down:
