Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme

John Frieda's Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme isn't in the CurlReviews & a search on this site comes up with nothing, so I'm hoping people who've used it will give me their take on this product.
I bought some two weeks ago.

Absolutely rubbish for my hair, t was really sticky and heavy and did nothing for definition or frizz control. It coul be different for you, I think it will only work on fine and really obedient hair.

Is this the same secret weapon cream they had out years ago? If so, I used to like it, but it is very heavy & cone-laden. Most things didn't build up on me pre-cg/modified cg, but this did, so I stopped getting it....hth...
I only ever used it on dry hair to calm the odd frizzy spot. I also used it on straightened hair to smooth down the ends.
I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.

Used to be CG, now I'm not. Using Suave Aloe & Waterlily shampoo & condish, JoiWhip, BRHG, Suave Aloe gel, Aussie Tizz No Frizz, and anything else that looks good!
My Myspace!
The only silicone I see in it is phenyl trimethicone. There's also avocado oil, glycerin, wheat protein, PVP, a crosspolymer, & other stuff I just don't want to bother typing out.

If it's too heavy for thick hair, if that's what yours is, pitgirl, it'll probably be too heavy for fine hair, which mine is.

I think I'll just return it to the store since I haven't attempted to use it.
I personally have never been too crazy about this product. It makes my hair feel "gunky" and doesn't do much to cut frizz.

The only time I have used it successfully was when I had my hair blown straight and just added a SMALL amount to cut down on flyaways when I was out of smoothing serum.
What's working this week:
Shower: Garnier 3x Nutrition shampoo 1x per week, cowash with Tres Semme Naturals, condition with
GF Sleek and Shine deep conditioner
Styling: Tres Semme Naturals as leave in, L'Oreal Melting gel and HE SMU raked in, LOOB and AG Re:Coil scrunched in, Jojoba Oil scrunched in when totally dry

I use this product pretty often when I have my hair straightened. It calms down the frizz and tames the fly aways. It works pretty good for me, I guess it just depends on your type of hair.

Basically it was really gluey and I tried a pea sized amount as recommended, the result; it just sat on the surface of my frizzies and made my ends really stringy. I think because my hair is so thick and can be coarse at the canopy it couldnt absorb where I needed it the most as for the the hair underneath my canopy, which is in fab condition, it made it stringy.

I think it would work on hair which is not coarse and is even in texture so it can absorb all over.

Well, there are products that are too heavy for my hair.

For instance, natural oils like jojoba, & shine serums & pomade weigh down my hair & make it greasy looking. It's hard to get all my hair with such a small amount. Unless I'm not supposed to be putting it on my hair from root to end?

And I may even stop purchasing Garnier Fructis Soft Curl Creme that I have half a jar of because it drags my hair down, especially by mid-day, & it's quite gummy. Unless I've been using too much of that too. Repeat: It's hard to get all my hair with such a small amount. Unless I'm not supposed to be putting it on my hair from root to end?

I was considering purchasing L'Oreal Out of Bed, but may not now after thinking about how it seemed to be described. It sounds like it may be a bit heavy for my hair too.
Now see Loob I find very very light. I didn't use leave in several times and just left in a little of my rinse out and then added Loob and my hair had volume, dried faster and was real light feeling
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
Just wanted to second madusahair that LOOB is a good alternative to GF Soft Curl Cream, which is SUPER sticky. I feel like it's comprable to the GF sans the stick.

Not to hijack the thread or anything.
3B with some 3a. Fell off but am now back on the CG bandwagon and looking for my HG products.
Shun the enablers, shun! :P

ETA: I used to like GFSCC, but I haven't used it since (early?) Nov when I last had my hair trimmed, or early to mid Dec. Maybe it just didn't like the weather turning or maybe it just stopped working. Since mid Dec to early Jan, when I last used my gel, it's not worked as well either.
Walgreens had one jar left that was opened & looked like it was played with. I took a whiff, it's alright. Then I jiggled the jar & it looks to be the same thickness as GFSCC. I wasn't going to put my fingers in it to be sure. I bet they're out of it because there are a lot of lurking curly gals & guys.

Target doesn't even carry it.

And I wasn't going to Wal-Mart. Right now it's just not that important to me. Maybe I'll try it later when I've used up most of my curl creams.
