      Comments about Tigi Bed Head Control Freak Serum:

      I love this product. I'm 54 with medium length wavy blonde hair, medium texture, a bit dry. When I straighten my hair, Control Freak gives me sleek shiny locks like in a shampoo commercial. When I go natural, I get bouncy beachy waves. I like Tigi products anyway, but Control Freak is now my go-to. It's light, so if you have thick or coarse hair your results may vary.

      Great for my curls

      By Melanie

      from Arlington, Tx

      Comments about Tigi Bed Head Control Freak Serum:

      I have 3a/b curls and I live in hot, humid north Texas. I use this stuff layered over a curl cream while I'm still in the shower and my hair is sipping wet. I scrunch it in to form the curls, get out of the shower, then scrunch with a basic t shirt to remove the excess water. I almost always air dry, my hair is dry within 2 1/2 hours (that's short compared to curl gels that cause my hair to take 3-4 hrs to dry!) and then I scrunch the crunch out. And make no mistake, you do have to scrunch out the crunch if you're air drying or your hair will be a stringy crunchy mess. After all of this, my hair looks amazing. Perfect ringlet curls that flow in the wind and spring when I walk. It hasn't dried my hair out, it doesn't leave a film, I'm able to get 3-4 days of curls every time I use this stuff. I knocked off a star because it only seems to work when I use it with a specific curl cream that is very expensive. The curl cream only seems to work when I pair it with this, too, so they seem to be a great pair! It has been great for my winter hair, I guess I'll have to see how it works as the temps start to sky rocket.

                  Works great in most climates except in summer in Galveston, Texas. Not strong enough to control frizz in extreme humidity and heat.

                      I used it once on wet hair to tame frizz and my hair did not like this product. My hair looked dried out and poofy. I hate the smell and feeling of it. It feels like gel and I wasn't a big fan especially for straightening. Im returning it!

                        Also, how does it work on dry frizzy hair? Will it be stiff and greasy looking with either?

                          They're the same...The '3' indicates the sequence or the order its used in. For example...
                          We used to have a Control Freak Shampoo and Conditioner. Those, as far as order of use, would be 1 and 2. Then Control Freak Serum would be...you guessed it...#3.

                          Yes. It's amazing for straightening. However, and I'm sure you're aware of this already, that when using Control Serum, it's designed to be combed through and blow dried with a round or at straightening brush.

                          It is sulfate-free. It is also salt-free, so it should be just fine to use on keratin treated hair, though it is always a good idea to review the ingredients list with your stylist!
