Directions:

Rub a few silky drops onto palm of hands and evenly distribute through wet or dry hair. May be used with a blow-dryer for straightening.

 

Packaging:           

This anti-frizz hair serum comes in an elongated transparent plastic container with a good pump dispenser. All necessary info is written on the packaging itself. However, the claims were written on a small label which was attached to the product separately.

The Claims!


Texture:     

The serum has a clear, gel texture and a thick consistency. It has a mild scent which lingers for quite a while and then fades away. I like the fragrance as it is kind of floral and definitely not bothersome! But the serum is sticky; ensure your hands are clean before proceeding with your makeup.

My experience with Giovanni Frizz Be Gone Hair Serum:

For the last one year, I have been constantly struggling with hair breakage issue, resulting in dull and lacklustre tresses😒 My natural silky shiny straight hair is no more, now the texture is somewhat in between half straight and half wavy. So, besides shampoos and conditioners, I thought what else can bring some shine and lustre to my hair? Google replied – SERUM, hence this purchase; precisely. Moreover, I got swooned over its claims! 

The claims-                                                                               

💜Controls frizz
💜Adds shine
💜Humidity control
💜Conditions
💜Smoothes
💜Detangles
💜Helps stop breakage
💜Extreme heat protection
💜Improves elasticity
💜Seals in colour.

So, is it true to its claims?
To an extent! Honestly, it didn’t live up to my level of expectations. It reminds me of the saying ‘Great cry little wool’ (naam bade aur darshan chhote). Why so? That being said let me confess that I don’t use any styling product on my hair, neither electronic hair tools nor any styling hair treatments (still hair fall and breakage!). So, this might work amazing for those who are totally into blow-dries and hair styles.


Applied on towel dried hair and clicked this pic once hair dried fully.

The sole purpose of buying this serum was to tame the frizziness as well as to make the hair shiny and glossy and it works great in this case. It makes my hair tangle free and smooth, controls frizz as well as imparts shine when applied on the dry hair especially.

How do I use it?
As per the instruction, I take two drops (pea sized) of this serum on my palm and then I rub my palm together before applying it along the hair length. I never applied this serum on my scalp as I have oily scalp and afraid that it would build up. It smells nice and doesn’t bother my sensitive nose. After applying it on the hair ends and the problem areas, I comb my hair thoroughly for even distribution. This serum can be used both on wet and dry hair so you can apply whenever you feel comfortable.

Applied serum on my dry hair! Much better look than wet.


So, what I liked about it?

💗Non-greasy effect. Upon application, it does feel sticky (owing to the gel texture) but after a while, it gives you super smooth, non-greasy hair. I love using it on my dry hair post shampoo than wet.

💗It smells fresh and soothing. Nothing artificial, though the scent vanishes away soon.

💗It makes my hair look shiny after every usage. I use it only on weekends, rest days I am okay with my DIY’s 😊

💗Only a tiny amount of it is all you need. I have fine hair and an excess amount can weigh down my hair. It’s advisable if you have super thick hair go for excess otherwise limit to only 2 drops per hair section. I have mid waist length hair. Plus, it would last me a long time😃 

💗It claims to seal in colour to the hair. I apply henna for colouring purpose but in this case, it didn’t make any difference either. However, it might work well for chemically treated coloured and damaged hair.

💗It is completely a vegan product, devoid of harmful chemicals (No paraben/SLES/SLS/Dyes). Organic products satisfy my mind and soul 💕

💗It’s available easily online and offline as well. 

What I disliked about it?

👎Oh lord, the packaging! It’s not at all travel-friendly. 

👎It neither stopped the hair breakage nor has that capacity to control frizz for a long time in a humid weather. It claims so, but failed in this regard! (Hong Kong is a humid place like India) The claims are really tall!

👎Staying power! Why should you invest in a product if it doesn’t stay for long, huh? This serum gives me soft, shiny locks just for a day and the next day, again all same.

👎Price tag (INR 800/). It’s not doing any miracle as compared to my no-cost DIY's (will reveal soon). Think twice before you spend money- lesson learnt!

👎It contains silicones, which adds instant shine to the hair by coating our hair externally. I use this serum only on weekends or special events, regular usage may damage the hair in the long run. 

👎Fine hair beauties might need to be more cautious with the amount. Because an extra drop can weigh down their hair!

 Rating: 3.8/5 (I could deduct more points but the truth is I didn't take full advantage of it considering hair styling part).


Conclusion:

So this was my experience with Giovanni Frizz Be Gone Hair Serum, an anti-frizz serum which claims to do lots of good stuff but surprisingly couldn’t meet my expectations. It does make my hair shinier and smoother but that I can easily achieve through my homemade haircare recipes. If you have similar hair types and woes like mine, please refrain from using it, instead look for something reasonable.

  4. You have beautiful hair Anamika. Most serums contain silicones so I usually skip them. You could try some preconditioning or oil treatment before shampooing in order to avoid breakage :)

    1. Russian oil? what's the name? I love oiling my hair, but the sad part is, hair fall is increasing day by day :( It seems like it's not going to stop anytime soon! In my case, hard water is the prime reason though! Thanks Claire :)

  13. Your hair <3 i would skip it...i mean anti-frizz serums are supposed to tame frizz without styling or blowdrying hair :/, ain't they? If i style my hair then it automatically becomes frizz free, so definitely skip for me..loved the honest review..
