    Comments about Sebastian Potion 9:

    I am a busy mom so I am always searching for a product I can put in my hair while wet and makes my hair look great after air drying. So many products have failed me. I have fine hair that usually air dries frizzy, tangled and lifeless. But this stuff... yesssss! I love how styled my hair looks after air drying with this magic potion in it. It does exactly what I have been looking for. Second day hair looks just as good. I originally purchased a travel size but once I run out I will be buying it in full size. Well worth the money!

              Comments about Sebastian Potion 9:

              This product did nothing for my hair. As a matter of fact, I found it very drying to my ends. For reference I am a wavy redhead with coarse gray hairs. Maybe for normal or oily hair it would be better, but I need something more nourishing. What a bummer!

              I use this after I have dried my hair and brushed it into style I like. I put it on front and crown to add gentle separation to these areas. It adds curl and smooths frizzies. Love it!!!

                Good product, always come back to it. I have used different products but Sebastian is reliable.
                I like the different sizes and always have a small size in my purse. You can refresh your hair with a little water and the potion.

                      I am a male with very coarse, wavy hair. I am looking for something that will help me tame my hair back, and create a loose pompadour style, but will still let it move. Will this product help? .

                        A:

                        It is a conditioning styler, which means it helps to smooth out the hair of any frizz, but also provides light hold and moisture. It is great for blow drying, but also for helping to define the natural wave in the hair while minimizing frizz.

                        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.

                        A:

                        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:
