Today I’m reviewing my current favorite hair serum. I have thin, brittle hair, prone to a lot of frizziness, if not tamed. And having a good serum is a necessity more than luxury, or else I end up looking like a... well... forget it! I’m currently using The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum. Read on to know why I like it so much. Did I say I like it a lot? :D

My take on The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum: I have used Matrix hair serums for a long time in the past, and while they were ok-ok, they were not doing anything good to my hair as such. like, the effects were temporary! So I wanted a new serum, and when I saw this one at the store, I couldn’t help but pick this one up, even though I wasn’t too convinced about the price in the first place. But all good things come at a price! Sigh!
The serum is a transparent fluid, which has a thin consistency, and smells of grapes! The fragrance is adorable, and I love it when my hair smells of this serum for a long time. Effect wise, the serum does control fly-aways like no other serum that I’ve tried before. The frizz is quite controlled with this serum, even though I’m blow-drying my hair almost every time after shampoo because of the chilly weather here. It does not weigh down the hair, or leave oily patches on certain hair sections. For my medium length hair, I need around 2 pumpfuls each time. Also, I sometimes apply it between hair-washes too, and the serum imparts a mild shine to my hair.
I’m not too sure about the split ends claim though, since I have been using it for only about 6 weeks now. Will update you guys if I note any remarkable difference with the split ends.
