People with frizzy hair would agree if I say, anything that claims to combat frizz attracts our attention immediately. As I was traveling, I thought of carrying a small-sized serum and also I was eyeing the Sebastian range, so I took the opportunity to pick this up. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Rs. 1150/- for 50 ml.
My Experience with Sebastian Professional Liquid Gloss Defrizz Polishing Drops:
The packaging is cute, handy and functional. The body is light blue in color, made of tinted plastic and the cap is matte and translucent. The pump works just fine and dispenses the right amount of product. The quantity dispensed each time can be controlled, thanks to the handy dispenser. Being lightweight, it is easy to travel with and only a wee bit of product is required each time, for my shoulder length hair; so this bottle is going to last me a while (justifies the pricing to an extent).
The texture is very thick compared to regular serums, so only a little drop is enough. Overdoing might lead to oily flat look. It has a tendency to flatten out voluminous hair, so the initial few applications might be tricky. After a while, you would get used to the quantity that your hair requires.
The serum can be applied on both damp and dry hair, but it has worked better for me on damp hair. On dry hair, it gives the flattened look which I do not like much. If you want to go for the dampened sleek hair look, you might use this on dry hair in generous quantity.
This does control frizz but I would still not say this is “THE” ultimate de-frizzing serum. It manages fly-aways and super frizzy zones, but still, I am not fully satisfied with the product. With this hefty price tag, I would love to see it work perfectly. The first one and half days are fine, but the frizz keeps coming back after that. So either a re-application or a hair wash followed by the serum becomes necessary.
It has a very faint cosmetic smell which disappears almost immediately after application. Availability can be an issue as I have spotted them only at select salons and online at a higher price. The polishing claim is true to an extent, that it provides a natural healthy shine to the tresses. Overall, this is a good-quality serum with effective results but still not the PERFECT one for eliminating frizz.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Sebastian Professional Liquid Gloss Defrizz Polishing Drops?
No, I have already got hold of something nicer. Will review that soon. If you want to try out something new in your hair care routine, you can give this a shot. Not disappointing in any ways though.
