Comments about Pureology Hydrate Shine Max Serum:

Nothing special. Very similar to Aveda smoothing fluid. I don't see much difference when using it.

          After curling hair with curling iron, I add about a dime size to the palm of my hand and rub it through my hair. Makes it shiny, no frizz and holds the curlys.

              Have used Aveda smoothing fluid for years and was looking for something similar that I didn't have to go to a salon and get. Use it everyday whether I straighten my hair or let it air dry with curl. Great product, not heavy and doesn't leave your hair greasy.

                I use this product following the pureology Shampoo and Conditioner. I used to switch my shampoo like my nail color but I won't stray any longer. The hydrate shine max is the cherry on top for smooth silky hair. I have long straight blond hair and this oil never makes my hair look greasy.

                        I currently use the Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier as a leave-in conditioner. I would like to try the Hydrate Shine Max, can they be used together? If so, which should I apply first?

                          Yes, you can use both Pureology Hydrate Shine Max and Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier. We recommend applying the Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier first, follow this with the Pureology Hydrate Shine Max.

                          Since we do not test our products on hair extensions, we recommend you contact the manufacturer of the hair extensions and follow their recommendation.

                      • Q:

                        Can this be used as a heat protectant before using a flat iron or curling iron? If not, can you suggest a pureology product to be used for heat protection?

                        I use Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner for my very fine, wavy, not colored, normal to-dry hair. Is Pureology High Shine Max a spray? Will it add shine? Any other suggestions for a product to apply to my wet hair, before blow drying?

                          Pureology Hydrate Shine Max will add beautiful shine to your hair. However, it is not a spray. Hydrate Shine Max is more of a serum. Put a few drops in your hands, rub your hands together and smooth throughout your hair.
                          You can distribute 2-3 drops through clean, damp hair before you blow dry, then style as usual.
                          You can also apply 1-2 drops on dry hair to increase shine and smooth flyaways.

                          A:

                          Hydrate Shine Max is a smoothing styling product that provides nourishing moisture and shine to your hair. Hydrate Shine Max is best for dry, dull hair.

                          Cuticle Polisher Shine Serum is designed to seal and smooth the cuticle, which is the exterior layer of the hair strand. Cuticle Polisher Shine Serum is ideal for porous hair in need of smoothing and shine.
