CONS

Can make oily hair greasy

Reduces the volume of hair


My hair type is wavy (Curly on ends) So I have split end problem and due to this my hair become dry, dull and lifeless. I have used many serum but I don't get the good result. I can use hair oil for reducing split ends and I use but only overnight before washing my hair. 'Cause hair oil make hair greasy. That's why I prefer hair serum after washing my hair before styling. I heard that argan oil is a magic for dry and dull hair. And I get to know that L'oreal has a budget friendly argan oil serum. So I give a try and the result is great. It reduces my split ends and make my hair super soft, shiny and healthy. It lasts upto 2 days. Only the negative thing is, it reduces the volume of hair with little greasy effect but it adds shine on hair. Overall it is a good product. For best result use this serum along with L'oreal smooth intense shampoo and conditioner. Key Features - - Enriched with argan oil, camelina sativa seed oil. - Nourishes hair - Controls the frizz - Reduces the split ends and - Adds shine to dull and rough hair. How to Use: Take a few drops of the serum onto the palms and apply on towel dried, damp hair. Rub hands together and distribute evenly along the lengths of hair, paying particular attention to the ends. Do not rinse, leave in. Contains: Aragania spinosa kernel oil (argan oil), camelina sativa seed oil, limonene, linalool, benzyl alcohol, benzyl salicylate, ionone, deraniol, fragnance.

Size is very small


I used to apply loreal's Mythic oil, there is not much of difference between this and the former one, mythic oils smells more aromatic and more light in weight, but both do the exact same job. so, I guess this serum option is going to be my choice from now on.

My hair is frizzy and wavy. The density is also not so impressive, that is why I have to be a little more cautious when it comes to hair care products. I heard about this serum and used it. The price is so affordable. You can use it regularly. It comes in a flip open bottle with a decent packing. All the instructions are clearly mentioned upon the bottle. The bottle is absolutely sturdy and does not leak at all. It is handy and easy to store. I always store it the bathroom only. You can also keep it in your vanity case. The consistency of this serum is just perfect, neither too fluid nor dense. It is just perfect to apply. It is non greasy and shiny when you take it in hands. After shampooing, towel dry your hair and it stops to drip water, take L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum and rub ample quantity on your palms. Now, apply the serum, more along the hair strands and least on the roots. Allow to set for a minute. You will surely notice a frizz free hair, it is instant to work. The hair is shiny and lustrous throughout the length. The protein content of L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum helps to repair the damaged hair. It is also easy to wash, you can wash it with plain water and it leaves no residue at all. You can use it a substitute of conditioner in emergency. The only trick thing as per my experience is that quantity, if you take it in more than required quantity your hair will look as if you have oiled it. Thus use a little quantity initially, when you know the requirement you can use appropriately. I would definitely recommend this to all my fellow Moms as we want a rapid and effective solution to control frizz.

I love this hair serum. After I wash my hair everyday, I apply it to my ends (avoid your roots otherwise your hair will be oily). My hair feels so soft and smooth and it gives it a nice and healthy shine to it.

Controls frizz mildly
3.6/5

PROS

Affordable

Convenient packaging

Non-greasy

Can be used daily

Generous quantity

Can be used as a pre-styling serum

CONS

Does not control frizz well

Effects last for just 2-3 hours


I started using hair serums about a few years ago. And over the years, I have skipped from one brand to another. Last month, I got L'Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum. It comes at a very affordable price. The quantity is quite a lot, so even after using it every day, I still have so much left.

The reason I started using serum is because of straightening. And I deeply regret doing that to my hair. Because now my hair needs extra care which is infuriating!

This serum comes in a plastic bottle and a flip-open cap which shuts sturdily. It is easy to use and can be carried around without spillage. The serum’s texture is as thick as oil, but it is non-greasy. The best thing about this serum is, it can be used both on dry and damp hair. So whenever I need a touch-up or want to style my hair with heating tools, I simply apply it all over.

Now that my hair is growing, I am getting a lot of frizz on my crown and temple area, which looks ugly. So I started using this serum for the sole purpose of controlling it. Does it work? Well, it makes my hair silky soft, but the frizziness is only mildly controlled. Moreover, it lasts for about two to three hours only.

I think I would have loved it if I didn’t have the frizziness problem. I will recommend it only to those whose hair isn’t badly damaged. For those whose hair needs serious attention, this serum is too mild.

Makes my hair silky
4.9/5

PROS

Affordable

Easily available

Controls frizz

None

Makes the hair silky and soft

Deeply nourishes dry hair

Detangles easily

CONS

None


I think L'Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum is one of the most accessible serums that actually works. I have been using it for months now and can’t seem to get over it. My straw-like hair feels deeply nourished, and the silkiness is ah-ma-zing.

It controls my frizz decently and combing has never been this easy. It also has this very subtle organic smell which does not irritate my nostrils. I will recommend this serum to dry and frizzy hair.

Nice fragrance but the packaging is not good
4.6/5

PROS

Revives dull hair

Long-lasting fragrance

Gives a glossy finish

CONS

Not travel-friendly

Tends to spill


This serum from L’Oreal Paris makes my hair very shiny, and it stays like that for the whole day. It also controls my frizz decently. I use this serum to give my dull hair some life. And I’m happy that is does precisely that. I also love its fragrance. My hair smells like I just took a luxurious hair bath. The only default I can find about it is the flip-open cap. Since the serum is runny, sometimes it spills from the lid making it a red flag to carry it around.

Thumbs up!
4.7/5

PROS

Grease-free

None

Does not weigh your hair down

Imparts shine

Provides protection from harmful sun rays

CONS

None


This serum made me appreciate the existence of serums. I just bought this to shield my hair from the environmental distress, but I ended up benefitting a lot. This serum is grease-free, so it does not weigh my hair down. Instead, my hair beautifully flows free with so much lush and gloss. The difference between before and after the application is clearly visible. I am so happy with this serum from L’Oreal. A giant thumbs up to it!
