A hair serum bar has been formulated to fight frizz: here is our opinion

In terms of sustainability, Superzero is at the top of his game.

In just a few months, the clean beauty brand has developed a handful of products (I’m obsessed with their zero-waste shampoo bar!) that forego plastic, bottles, water and harmful packaging. They are also vegan and cruelty-free. The newest product to note? Their Frizz Fighter hair serum bar.

When a Superzero rep contacted me to send me a product sample for review, it was a no-brainer. Not only does the brand philosophy resonate with me, but I’ve had a positive experience with their products so far.

The product

Unlike the shampoo bar, the hair serum bar is quite small (but highly concentrated). It’s extremely hot in the SoCal sun right now, so when my package arrived at my door in LA, my bar was a little melted. The instructions specifically say to store the bar in a cool, dry place as it will soften in the heat. A small piece was broken on arrival, but I quickly threw the package in the fridge to save use.

The bar costs $22 and weighs 0.8 oz. Its star ingredient is Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, and the product’s overall goal is to reduce frizz and flyaways, minimize combing force, improve heat protection, and promote softness and shine. shine. It can be applied to dry or towel-dried hair.

The experience

Once I took the product out of the fridge, I followed the package directions and gently massaged the bar between my dry hands. There was a light, fruity, non-invasive aroma that came from the formula. Couldn’t say bat, but it’s grapefruit. I rubbed for about 10 seconds until the bar melted into nothing and felt like an oil or cream on my hands. From there, I rubbed my hands over the top of my hair on both sides of my part. As promised, the product weighed down my frizz. Unlike something heavy like a pomade, for example, my hair wasn’t sticky, greasy, or weighed down overall. By using a minimal amount, I didn’t feel like I got any product in my hair.

Conclusion

It can be difficult to adjust to using bars (generally this also applies to shampoo). But once you play around a bit and get a feel for how much you need to use to get the desired result, it will come more naturally. At first I found it easy to want to break off more of the bar, but after some trial and error I realized it didn’t take much to get that pesky static out of the way.

The product can also be applied to the bottom of your hair to prevent the appearance of split ends. The price may seem a bit high when you first look at the product quantity. But if you use it sparingly and make sure it doesn’t melt, you should actually get more uses than you probably think.

In the end, I feel good using this product. Not only for its actual purpose, but it’s a relief not to feel like I’m throwing a bunch of grime all over my locks. It is also easy to transport in its small paper box.
