Never in my life would I have ever imagined I'd need an anti-frizz hair product. My hair is not only flat as a board, but it's also very oily. I thought frizz only happened to people with dry and/or textured hair (wavy, curly, etc.), but my hair always looks very flyaway, even with conditioner. I'm not crazy about using de-tangling spray on a frequent basis because it leaves a film on my hair that makes it look more oily, which is the last thing I need. So I went in search of a hair product that could tame my mane without leaving me with excess buildup that also didn't cost an arm and a leg.
After a little research, I found L'Oreal's Sleek It Frizz Vanisher Cream. It looked promising, and at just $3.99, it seemed like a reasonably-priced item that, should it fail, wouldn't set me back a whole lot. I got it, and while I don't use it every day, I've found that it does seem to work for me. It just needs to be applied to damp hair, so after I get out of the shower and take my towel off my head, I apply some of the product to the ends of my hair (not the scalp). My hair is about halfway down my back and I find that a single pump of this cream is sufficient for me, so a little does go a long way.
This product does help smooth out my hair, so it's definitely effective. It's not perfect (Suave's keratin-infused smoothing shampoo is the best smoothing product I've used, personally), but it does make a noticeable difference. Like other smoothing products, it also acts as a de-tangler and makes my hair ever-so-easy to brush, even while it's wet. My hair isn't perfectly smooth after using it, and since it's not completely unmanageable to begin with, I don't know how effective it would be for someone with severely frizzy hair.
Personally, I do like it, and it works pretty well for me; I can't speak for anyone whose hair is thick, curly or dry, but I'd say it's a worthwhile risk if you want to give it a go. You just might need to use more product than I do for a better result, that's all.
