Serums work best on my dry, curly and color-treated hair.
Bonnie P on Jul 4, 2015
Have used Silk Groom Cream with longer hair and wondering if the Silk Groom Serum willl work with my shorter hairstyle.
Damien B on Jun 29, 2015
I was headed to an event in the South recently. I have curly/wavy hair and the frizz was out of control when I arrived at the airport. So I picked up a bottle of this. I'm in love! This stuff is great! It is light, it softens away the frizz and actually enhances the bounce of the curls. It is a great product!

I love this product. I tried it for the first time while traveling in India. Intense humidity gave me very unmanageable hair. This product smoothed my hair, makes it shiny without weighing it down or looking oily.

I know Biosilk is similar to the serum which made my hair look awesome, but I stopped using it because the alcohol in Biosilk wasn't good for my hair. So my question is, can this product be used on African American hair?

Do you use this on wet or dry hair?
A shopper on Mar 18, 2013
Best Answer: Either way, depending on your hair type. I have thin hair and found it works best if I use it on dry hair and apply only to the tips, it makes my hair freeze free and shiny. My roommate on the other hand has thick hair and she prefers to use it when her hair is wet an she applies it all over. Hope this helps.

I have very fine hair. Will this weigh my hair down?
kathyL on Apr 11, 2014
Best Answer: If you use just a drop and work it underneath and ends of hair it should be fine. I do not recommend pulling thru the roots

Can this be used on dry hair to tame fly aways?
Jodie G. on May 21, 2014
Best Answer: Absolutely! My hair is very dry and frizzy and I use 4-5 skirts of this serum every morning to smooth the top and ends and/ or smooth a wrap with a barette. Try it you'll be pleased!!

I am a young man with short but thick hair. I'm looking to tame frizzy strays but do not want anything heavy or greasy. Which is better: the silk groom serum or the Heat-Protective Silk-Straightening Cream?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2012
Best Answer: I haven't used the Hear-Protective Cream. But for the silk groom serum, it is not heavy, at least for me. I used it after the bath when my hair is a little wet, and blowed dry after it. The serum would blend into the water on my hair and make my hair smoothier and more shiny.

Im a man with short thick and somewhat frizzy hair. If I wanted to get out of the shower and towl dry my hair and spray the serum on top without touching my hair, would it straighten it out and remain the same way it does when it's wet?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2015
Best Answer: Just to clarify, it's not a spray. It's more of an oil (serum) that will tame the frizz but it won't necessarily hold your hair in a specific place. I too have very thick hair and it keeps it somewhat flattened/straightened but it is not an effective styling agent.

I am looking for something to style my hair with that will eliminate frizz and flyaway (more importantly frizz) without making my hair greasy/ a product that won't weigh my hair down. I'm torn between this product, the hair mask and the serum...? :/

Best Answer: You need a product with protein to repair the frizz rather than pasting it down. This product works.
