My hair is frizzy, and YES people, I have tried ALL of these products to cope with my problem.
Thought I’d be helpful and do a review:
L’oreal Paris Elseve Smooth-Intense Anti-Frizz Serum ★★★ (3/5)
Type: Light, clear serum
Bought in: Kyoto, Japan
The verdict: I loved the smell, loved the texture, how it felt on my hair, but even after putting loads my hair was still puffy. Used the red and orange versions.
Pantene Damage Repair Serum ★★ (2/5)
Type: Light, clear serum
Bought in: Just bought it at Wellcome supermarket out of desperation
Price: Around HK$50
The verdict: Kept the frizz down to a decent degree, but still nothing spectacular. Comes in a tiny tube, and would definitely run out in no time because my hair is so frizzy I need a LOT of serum.
Liese Frizz-Free Styling Milk ★★ (2/5)
Type: Milky white cream
Bought in: Mannings
The verdict: Was alright sometimes, but I wasn’t sure how “moisturizing” or “nourishing” it was, because it didn’t feel very good on the hair. I also hated the white colour, which sometimes made it look like I had gum on my hair. Didn’t work very well for me.
Essential Damage Care Anti-Frizz Hair Serum ★ (1/5)
Type: Very thin light clear serum
Bought in: Watsons Marina Bay Sands Singapore
Price: SGD$10.90 (HK$70)
The verdict: Literally had to pump 6 times before I got any results.
Giovanni, Frizz Be Gone, Super Smoothing, Anti-Frizz Hair Serum ★ (1/5)
Type: Thick heavy clear serum
Bought in: SaSa
The verdict: I would definitely advise against this product. It makes your hair SO heavy and greasy and sticky and gross. But still, for me it was better than nothing. Best applied on damp hair.
TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost Split End Mender, Leave-In Conditioner ★ (1/5)
Type: Thin, sticky clear serum/gel-like substance
Bought in: California, US (but this is available in Bonjour)
Price: US$21.99 (HK$170)
The verdict: Horrible. Sticky and makes your hair STIFF and dry! Have no idea why other people have given this a good review.
Citre Shine Shine Mist Anti-Frizz Spray Laminator ★★★★ (4/5)
Type: Light clear spray serum
Bought in: New Town Mall, Mongkok
The verdict: LOVED the spray factor. I bought a bigger bottle in pink (now that I think about it – was that fake?)… but anyway it smelled nice, made my hair shiny, and didn’t get my hands sticky! Problem was I needed to spray a lot and it ran out fast.
Fekkai BRILLIANT GLOSSING CRÈME ★★★★★ (5/5)
Type: White/opaque, non-sticky light cream
Bought in: Got this at a media event
Price: HK$295 at JOYCE Beauty
The verdict: WORKS like a wonder. And it doesn’t take loads of product to achieve a great effect. It’s expensive, but you get bang for your buck. Seriously, it made my hair look like this:
