My hair is quite dry, but naturally straight, so I need products that smooth out that little bit of annoying frizz that comes with moisture challenged follicles. This product is pretty much perfect for that, it smooths the hair, and leaves it lovely and soft. It is also heat activated, and protects against styling damage, which is a bonus.
The product comes in a small bottle with a pump top, all in garnier fructis' signature colour, a very bright green. It has the brand name at the top of the label, and the name of the product, 'smoothing milk', in the middle. Below this is an orange ball with the words 'sleeka and shine' accross it, so you know to expect a product that will help fight frizz and keep your hair smooth. It costs around £3, which is a bargain considering it works so well.
You use this product on towel dried hair, before blow drying. Warm a 50p sized dollop between your palms, then smooth through the mid lengths to ends of your hair. If your hair is longer than shoulder length, then use more. My hair is about top of bust length, so I use two 50p sized dollops. When you have done this, comb through your hair with a wide toothed comb, then blow dry. You can also use this product before straightening, just use half or less of the amount you would use before blow drying.
Since using this smoothing milk, my hair has been noticeably smoother. It doesn't really need straightening after blow drying anymore, and feels softer. It also looks shinier. It is necessary to use another product, e.g. serum on your finished style to keep frizz at bay throughout the day, but whilst styling, this product is excellent. It smells gorgeous as well, it has a strong orange scent.
Today has been one of those days when I needed this product the most! My hair was out of control in the gail force winds, I was more focused on getting to work safely than what my hair looked like. When I got to work a brush and normal hair spray would not tame my hair or flatten the frizz. How i'd wished i'd brought this product with me. I bought this product trusting my faith in it after searching for a long-lasting frizz control hair product. I found it at Wilkinsons for a ok £3.19 for 200mls, it sounded nice because I had never heard of a product that used milk as a formula for hair products. I had heard of this range before and thought if it worked for my friends why shouldn't it for me. I applyied this product after washing my hair, it did not feel sticky on my hands or hair and I noticed its fresh fruity smell. I let my hair dry for a while until it was just damp. From root to the tip I spreaded a little amount evenly, as my hair was long I needed quite a bit. I did not rinse it off my hair as it explains on the pump action bottle. The fructis Style smoothing milk worked to eliminate excess frizz. I used it before blow-drying as the fruit micro waxes help to keep hair managable and keep it in control. After blow-drying my style remained smooth with the body I desired and my unwanted frizz gone. My style kept for about 6 hours which was longer than most products I had tried and tested. I have started using this product with its range of haircare by Garnier Fructis as it says it works best with its own range. I like this product because of its pump action, Bright design, colour and the fact that it could be reycycled. For the qualitys it boasts, smell, when applied to my hair, how long lasting it was and the bottle pump action it came in I gave it a cool 10/10.
