Most Helpful Positive Review Throw out your flat iron.
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.
Most Helpful Critical Review Works amazing but is horrible for your hair
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.

this only product for my hair that doesn't way it down or look greasy
Nina35 from Canton, MI.
I've been using this on&off for years, and I always seem to come back to it. I have 4/B-4/C THICK hair, and this works great to simply seal ends, and moisturize my hair enough to not get frizzy. It feels oily on your hands, but not oily at all in your hair. I have SO MUCH body&bounce after using this after I let my hair air dry, before straightening it with a flat iron. I totally recommend!
JaneE from Indiana
I use Super Skinny Serum on my damp hair before blow drying. I think it is awesome. Doesn't leave my hair oily and makes my hair manageable. I highly recommend for dry hair.
Love this product
Audi from PA
This product is great on my curls to keep them smooth and frizz free. The smell is pleasant too and I like that it doesn't have lanolin in it.
Amazing product! Worth the money!
Cfoto101 from Covington
I use this product when my hair is slightly damp. I finish blow drying my hair after I apply the serum and it leaves my hair soft and shiny.
Not one day !

Not one day do I go without this magic!!!! Shine and protection!!!! Great price too!
Too thick and sticky
Rinny from California
I'd heard this was such a cult favorite and wanted to like it so badly but it just didn't live up to the hype. It had very little product for the price point. The consistency was too thick. I used a dime sized amount for very long and thick (East Asian) hair, applying to my ends (which needs the most hydration) and working my way up the length of the hair. Even so, it weighed down my hair and left a sticky mess. I honestly hated it. My friend with thick and medium length (Indian) hair loves it, however. Different strokes for different folks. Personally, I like the drugstore Garnier Fructis Moroccan Sleek hair oil much better than this.
Spend the extra $ on this product!
Bre from Onalaska
Out of 100s of products recommended for frizzy/coarse/damaged hair this is the ONLY one that I've found that works! Makes my hair so soft!
I would buy this again
Mary from SC
That is only thing worked for me
B from Ohio
I don't feel like it really does much for my hair, although I do have thick hair. Also I've bought this twice when ulta didn't have my go to serum, and both times the pump didn't work and the bottle leaked.
WOW just WOW
Adeline27 from WI
WOW! This stuff....where do I start. Talk about ZERO weigh down and greasy feel....you would think a serum/oily texture would weigh your hair down or make it stick straight and lifeless. NOPE! this stuff is like a dose of kitten softness and elasticity for your hair. Adds beautiful shine, and smells amazing. So small it fits in my purse. I use it when blow drying or even after I brush my dry hair. It never fails to revive my long wavy coarse hair. I see smooth luxurious locks and I have desert dry hair. GREAT to use before straightening too with ZERO flattening effect.

Best Serum ever!!!
So far so good

No more frizzy ends!
DAPA from PA
I put it on my damp hair before drying. Dime to nickel sized drop. Apply to ends. Once dried and styled I can touch up if I have a few fly-aways.
Emma from Duluth, GA
I've been buying this since the old pink packaging (if you know you know) and this literally saves my 2C curls from humidity and frizz. It smells like a dream and is the only way I stop my hair from looking like a puffball in georgia weather.
I would buy this product again I loved it!
Monibell from Dothan Alabama
I use it in my hair while it's still wet then blow dry straight works wonders on frizz!
Smells amazing, works good too!
AMBER from MI - Michigan
Helps with humidity frizz!
I love this product it is great on my natural hair texture
Miracle from GA
I use it before I wear a natural curl set and every morning and night to keep my hair looking healthy. I also use it before and after blow-drying. It gives the hair texture a good shine. I only use one pump per-use. My granddaughter, on the other hand, has thicker hair and is also mixed Ecuadorian and AA and her hair is down to her butt, she uses two to three pumps and I have her part her hair in fours and add the oil. She cheers so she needs a lot of oil for the sweat factor and she swims a lot in the summer and needs it oily to protect her hair.
I will buy product again! Love Love Love!

Great for use after shower in damp here. Love Paul Mitchell, only kind I'll buy from now on. Worth the cash!

I recommend this to everyone that deals with fizzy hair.
This Stuff Is Amazing!
Christin57 from Missouri
I use this every day. It tones down frizz, defines your curls and gives your hairstyle an overall smooth appearance. I also carry a mini-bottle with me in my purse, for when I need a quick touch-up.
Not what I was expecting
Roeses99 from Northern California
With the pandemic forcing us to buy everything online, I purchased this thinking it was something I could use on wet hair that would make straight hair look soft. Unfortunately I should have taken the "serum" seriously. This makes my hair oily looking and takes my hair from looking freshly washed to looking like I need a wash. For me, I can only use a dime sized squirt on the ends of my hair when it's dry. I'm going to have this bottle for the next 10 years.
I have used this for years.
Jeanne from Redmond, WA
I have been using this for years to keep the ends of my hair moisturized and "curly". I have long hair, zero split ends. I flip my hair over, put Skinny Serum in palms of my hands and scrunch it on the ends after I've washed and towel dried my hair. It certainly seems to work! Keeps it from being dry and keeps down "static fly away" and reinforces curls, especially if I have a perm. I understand this isn't really what it's made for (to be a "smoother") but it works for me.
Love, Love, LOVE

I love this product I tried it last summer during a summer vacation to help with the humidity. I have not stopped using it since. I use it all year round and it provides everything I would want in a product. Leaves my hair smooth and smells fantastic.
