Smooth Operator

I got my hair cut the other week after what felt like an age. It sorely needed it. I’ve gone to the same hairdresser for a while now. My hair is very thick, long and has a mind of it’s own. It’s not straight and not curly but has the wavy thing going on. It can get very frizzy looking and as with most curly/wavy hair doesn’t naturally have much shine. Therefore I am always on the look out for serums and protective products. I do straighten my hair from time to time but day to day I tend to only do the top section. I have to use full on heat to get it to do anything so I try to do as little as possible. Gone are the days of fighting against it as I did as a teenager and work with what I have.

I am a sucker for buying products when I get my do done at the salon. This trip I came away with Kerastase - Sérum Oléo-Relax. Around £12 a bottle it’s not cheap but then neither is the rest of the brand. I am super impressed though. The website does state it is for fine to medium hair but it does work on my thick locks. It really does calm my tresses down. I can see this being a repurchase for sure. I do also want to get my hands on Paul Mitchell serum as I heard this is a great smoothing product too.

I get the colour done next week and I am can’t wait. It’s gone way too dark with over colouring for my liking.



  1. If you're talking about Paul Mitchell Super Skinny then you should definitely try it, I've been using it for years, and it's amazing! Also, I've only ever bought 2 bottles, it lasts forever!

  2. Yep - that's the one. Defo going to get some now!
