Schwarzkof’s got2b Smoothing Lustre Lotion

A couple weeks ago I received a mystery package in the mail that contained two bottles of Schwarzkopf’s got2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Lustre Lotion. I don't know why I received these items but I'm not going to ask too many questions; free hair products are free hair products.

Anyway, I haven’t used got2b since university, when I had a bad experience with an overly greasy hair smoothing product (probably an earlier incarnation of what I received) so I didn’t have much hope in Lustre Lotion. But much to my surprise, I've been satisfied with it every time I've used it.

To start, I ran a small amount of this lightweight, lightly scented lotion through my toweled-dried hair. While it does a good job of detangling it, this isn't its strong suit.

The results were better once my hair dried. As promised, it did smooth everything down and left my hair visibly shiny. Sadly, the smoothing aspect faded once I left my air-conditioned condo and went outside but well, 90 percent humidity is a tough enemy for any hair product to battle.

While this item is packed with silicon ingredients (the packaging talks about using cashmere but it’s the silicon that’s giving you the results), it doesn’t leave your hair feeling filmy or “producty” (you know what I mean). Instead, to borrow a phrase from an ad, it makes your hair “touchably soft”.

This product retails for about $6-$8, a more than fair price for it, particularly since you can also use it on dry hair to smooth away the frizzes (just use a light touch).

Would I buy this again: Possibly; check my next blog entry to see how it compares with Moroccan Oil, my usual hair smoother
Should you buy it: Yes, unless you like scent-free products, then skip it
