L’Oreal Professionnel Play Ball Silky Sunrise Serum Spray
My quest for the perfect hair serum and anti-frizz product continues. I picked up L’Oreal Professionnel Play Ball from a salon from where I got a hair cut. I asked the stylist to suggest me something for frizzy hair and she gave me this L’Oreal Play Ball to try. L’Oreal Professionnel Play Ball Silky Sunrise Serum is a cocktail of sorts that seems to be effective in one aspect and fails in another. Let’s see how.

My Take on L’Oreal Professionnel Play Ball Silky Sunrise Serum:
L’Oreal Professionnel Play Ball Silky Sunrise Serum is a product from the Play Ball series, which comprises products such as anti-frizz fizz, wax smoothie, icy fix, creamy smooth, soda sparkler, cosmo spritzer, fuzzy rocks, and texture tonic. Since only Silky Sunrise was available and suggested, I picked that one up.
If I had been given a choice, I would have definitely picked up the wax smoothie.
Coming to Silky Sunrise, it’s an amber-colored round bottle with a white plastic odd-looking cap. This is a spray bottle with liquid in it, which acts as an aerosol upon getting sprayed. It smells faintly orangey for the initial 2 or 3 seconds that I spray it, otherwise, there is no such thing as fragrance in this one.
When the bottle is still, I can easily make out the two layers in the bottle, one is a whitish top layer and the bottom one is amber colored.
When the bottle is shaken as instructed, the bottle gets filled up with glittering golden globules, but when left alone, they separate and form an oily layer on top and a clear layer beneath.
Coming to how it fairs on frizzy hair, since I have curly hair that is frizz-full after shampooing and “without” a conditioner, I spray this on to towel-dried hair. I can see that it immediately acts and smooths out the frizz, but then there is no “intense” shine or glossiness. Also, it goes very light on the hair and though I get headache with hair products directly applied to my scalp, nothing of that sort happened with this play ball spray.
It does give good hold to the hair without weighing it down, but that hold is not enough for heavy-duty hairstyles. It definitely cannot replace the hair spray on your dressing table that you use for styling your hair.
I am happy that something that I bought for Rs. 675 acts like an anti-frizz agent, but then, I can spend somewhere around Rs. 75 for a small tiny bottle of Livon Silky Potion and get the gloss as well as smooth hair.
Pros of L’Oreal Professionnel Play Ball Silky Sunrise Serum:
• An effective anti-frizz serum.
• Gives good hold to the hair without weighing it down.
• Goes very light on the hair and spraying it near the scalp area does not give me a headache.
• Does not weigh down on the hair.
• Has not caused any hair fall.
• Attractive round bottle.
Cons of L’Oreal Professionnel Play Ball Silky Sunrise Serum:
• Does not add shine or gloss to the hair; though the claims state otherwise.
• Very less quantity for the price. If I get generous with the spritz, it would finish in no time.
• Comparing it with Livon Silky Potion, Silky Sunrise just does not rise up to the standards.
Will I Buy It Again?
Nope, I will get a small tiny bottle of Livon and that will do.
2.5/5 (+2.5 for acting against frizziness and -2.5 for failing to add any shine).
