Great For Straight Hair Fly-aways!

Increase shine and smoothness
Healthier looking hair
Similar to any review I would do for skincare, I can only speak for girls of similar hair type. My hair is very straight, quite limp and fine. I always have to fight to keep a curl or any volume. The main reason I wanted to try this serum is to help control fly-aways and give my hair a silky, soft shine.
The product I received was a small sample size with about 2-3 uses however someone with a hair texture similar to mine would get many more out of it because I only use a tiny drop for my entire head. I have used it about 7 times and still have a couple uses left...I take a drop about the size of a dime (it's more viscous than you may think for a serum) and rub it in between my palms then use my two hands and run them over my hair. I avoid the top 1/3 of my head because my flat, straight hair tends to look oily if I use any type of moisturizing, shine treatments on my roots.
The product also has a lovely smell- not too strong but lightly fragranced that lingers for a little while. It leaves behind gorgeous, smooth hair and really helps flatten down fly-aways. I found that it lasted a few hours, but not throughout an entire day without touch-ups. cannot comment on how it makes frizz more manageable for frizzy, curly hair but I would definitely suggest it to try.
As for heat protection, I wouldn't consider this my primary heat protectant as I find I use so little to just smooth down fly-aways and add some shine, I don't feel like it could possibly protect my hair as well as a true heat protectant spray. It's not a fault of the product, I just wouldn't use the amount necessary to actually provide protection.
-Adds smoothness and shine
-Lightweight (as long as not put on roots)
-Makes hair soft to the touch
-Doesn't last all day (requires touch-ups)
-Can make roots of straight hair look oily
I think this treatment works great as a shine/finishing serum to tame fly-aways although I cannot comment on its abilities to manage frizz for curly haired ladies. I really love the scent and how healthy it leaves my hair looking, as long as I don't over-do it! :)
