Naked - Extra Shiny Finishing Serum

If I am honest I thought that my hair + serum just didn't work. Well I didn't see the point and I also thought it would just weigh down my hair. So I first took the plunge afew years ago and purchased John Freda Frizz Weather Works Style Creme and to be honest it didn't keep my hair weather resistant, just abit more bouncy for 20 minutes. 

What I was really looking for was something to make my hair shinier & less frizzy, especially in the heat. Which I think I may have found in Naked's Finishing Serum.
Putting all it's qualities aside for a minute, this smells seriously good - and when I say good I mean in the way that Aussie's 3 minute miracle smells! If you don't believe me or haven't got a clue what I am going on about, have a quick sniff of the serum next time your in Boots. Just make sure no one is looking!
It has a very addictive bubblegum smell, which is so refreshing to see when you compare it too a brand like Tresemme.

 Anyway onto what it actually does...

Well first of all it looks good - this was so hard to capture but it has this pearl sheen too it which I haven't seen before in any other hair products.
So as for the product itself it's kind of a gel like formula that quickly absorbs once you run it through your hair, which means you are aren't left with that 'product' feeling that can weigh down the hair or even make it look greasy if you apply too much, which is what I tend to do.
As for application you just run it through dry hair once you have 'styled' it, but I actually prefer to use it when I am having a lazy hair day as it really cuts down on the fizz and makes my hair more reflective. Or I use it after using the Babyliss Conical Wand as it separates the curls and really gives some definition to the hair and smooths down them nasty frizzy bits on top! 

I thought I would include a photo I have used previously even though in the picture I had slept on my hair. But the day before I had used the conical wand then ran two pumps of the Extra Shiny Finishing Serum through it to give that definition. 
I feel like I am rambling now but if you are new to using serums or even just product in your hair than this is the one to go for. Even if it's just for the smell! It's also great for long or short hair.
Also as it's by Naked you don't get that scunky product build-up that you can get from other products *cough*Toni & Guy*.

You can buy it from Boots on and offline for £4.99 but at the moment it's on buy 1 get 1 free if I am right in thinking. 

On a side note - what are we thinking about hair related posts? I know I have alot of hair, but is it a Yay or Nay? 


  1. Love the hair related posts - am always looking for new products to try!

  2. I really dont like John Frieda Frizz-Ease products and currently using Bed Heads, but i'm just not wowed so may give this a go! quite a price difference between that and Bed Head.
