Let me start by saying my hair is trashed-- completely bleach-fried, as in maybe-I-should-shave-my-head-and-start-over damaged. If I wash my hair and put no leave-in product on it, it air-dries looking like somebody put a Barbie in the microwave. My hair needs help. A lot of help. That being said, THIS PRODUCT makes my hair look like actual human hair. In combination with PM's Forever Blonde Dramatic Repair leave-in, Super Skinny makes my jacked-up strands smooth and shiny and NOT AT ALL like day-old ramen. I used to think I had to flat iron because my hair was so nasty and frizzy and prone to tangling and just being generally disgusting-- but this stuff smoothes everything out and I can spare my very-fragile hair the heat torture and just blow dry with a round brush. And it's actually shiny! And pretty! If I had to throw out every hair product I own except one, THIS would be the product I'd keep. Two things you need to know about this product: First, it smells like watermelon candy, so bonus. Second, this is a heavy silicone-based serum. That means it is prone to buildup if you use heavy silicone shampoo or conditioner or a sulfate-free shampoo that doesn't break down the silicone completely. You'll end up with sticky, stringy hair after a while. So just remember you need to wash your hair properly, and that you only need to use a TINY amount, and you won't have buildup problems.
First off, This product does do what it says. And it does it great, however. It is absolutely horrible for your hair. It only has 12 ingredients. 7 of those being artificial fragrance (irritating and drying). 4 of those being heavy silicones(wax). and 1 of them being sunscreen. The reason for it working so well is it creates a heavy wax film over your hair that makes it feel soft and appear smooth to defrizz but your hair is still equally as damaged underneath the candle like wax. Come on Paul Mitchell, I'm sure you can make a product that wont make your hair fall out by age 50.

Probably the best hair serum I've ever tried. Definitely takes my frizz & doesn't leave my hair greasy at all! Buy it!

LGD from Fairfield Ca
I use this before blow drying. Tames the hair and keeps it manageable.
Jenna from PDX
I apply on clean washed hair and use it before blow drying and after. Also, works great as a detangler! Great when skipping shampoo day.
MONP from Texas
Have used this daily for years and love it!
Ama from Ventura county
I have used this product and I love it!
Gloria from San Antonio, Tx
My hair is thick and long. After washing and rinsing with Paul Mitchell products I have trouble removing tangles. With this additional product I can remove tangles with ease and it also prevents hair from frizzing.
Kim from Ga
Always a keeper. It lasts forever.

I love this product
jb from Utah
Love this! my hair is thick and very prone to knots Using this before my blow dry my hair is left soft and silky with an amazing salon scent. I also love putting it on my ends of my dry hair it's the best .
Veronica from Maryland
I absolutely love this product. Focus it on your dry ends. Of course if you go into your scalp with any silicone product unless your scalp is super dry you're going to be a greasy mess. But it's really not grease it's silicone people. So there's might be a little bit of a learning curve here but I adore it and I have dry ends and oily scalp. Have been using for YEARS. Goes on last/ before hair spray . Dry looking hair screams " you're old". Don't be this person .
Lindsay from Georgia
Smoothing and a little goes a long way, for sure! My hair in thin and I use maybe half a pump to avoid the greasies.
Bj from Round lake, il
I use before and after shampooing
CC from East coast
I have healthy hair but it is fine and on the thinner side. I can use this daily without washing hair and it gives my hair a gorgeous shine without weighing down. Use the tiniest drop possible for all of my hair (mid back length)
Jennifer from Orlando FL
I have thick, course, curly wavy hair and I decided to try this. Most serums leave my hair feeling like there is a layer of gunk on it. This was shockingly great! It honestly helped my hair dry faster and feel quite soft and shiny. I blow dry my hair now and it feels amazing, first time trying and Im in love.
steph from Missouri
I'm white with incredibly frizzy incredibly thick hair with a little wavy pattern . I grabbed the travel sized on my way to the check out in the store and love it. I part my hair down the middle and use pray hands method to put 2 pumps on both sides. I dont let the oil get close to my roots just to the bottom of my ears (my hair is over 30inches long) absolutely incredible
krewz from nj
I love those hair serum it is the perfect thing to put in my hair before blow drying, if I ever forget to put it in my hair I am automatically having a bad hair day
Dee from Seattle, WA
I used it only once and it made my hair so straight it would not hold a curl. This might be suitable for someone with thick hair but not my fine hair I have to curl with a curling iron.
Emma from Florida
I love this product so much! My hairstylist used it on my hair and it made such a difference, I had to buy it! I have naturally very curly (almost coily hair), so before straightening, I will put a pump of this in my damp hair, blow dry smooth, and straighten (then add one more pump as a finisher). Works wonders! And it seems to prevent the Florida humidity and hair poofing more than precious products I have tried.
Fati from Santa Maria, CA
I apply when my hair is wet or dry it doesn't leave my hair feeling oily but soft and that's what I like about it and the smell is amazing it's definitely helping with my dry roots and helping them get better and for them not to get tangled a lot I would definitely buy again
Shelbs from Lake Charles
This product made my curly hair stop being frizzy when I straighten it
Hillary from Georgia
I've tried others but I always come back to Paul. It's lightweight, smells amazing, and keeps my hair feeling so soft and healthy. I will buy this forever.
Love from Fresno, ca

I put this on my dry hair before and after I use a curling iron. It makes my hair smooth and prevents frizziness.
