VO5 Smoothly Does It Frizz Free Creme


I received this product in my Cosmopolitan magazine this month. I was intrigued and excited to try it as it seemed like a type of product that I would be interested in myself. I generally haven't got along well with VO5 products in the past. I'm not overly too sure why but they always seems to make my hair feel a bit thick and weighed down. Having said this, I went into this product testing with an open mind and I am happy that I did. This is probably the best VO5 product I have tried to date.

This cream aims to protect the hair from heat whilst also aiding your straightening and general styling. All you need to do is apply a small amount of product evenly throughout the lengths of your towel dried hair and then proceed to a usual blow dry and straighten. As with all new hair products, I like to try them on their own so that I know what they are capable of without the help of any other products.

Overall the cream worked fine. My hair didn't feel frazzled, it looked sleek and the frizz was tamed. It did what it claimed it would but it just didn't wow me. It didn't make my hair super soft or shiny. Don't get me wrong, my hair still was soft and glossy, but no more than usual. It seemed to me that this was a fine product if you just wanted to pick something that did the job, but if you were looking for professional, advertisement-look-alike hair, this wasn't going to achieve that.

You can't begrudge the product because it works perfectly. On the other hand it hasn't left me wanting more.

If you received this in your magazine as well or have tried it in the past, please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. I am always open to hearing other peoples opinions as everyone has their own experiences. What doesn't work for one person might work well for another :) Furthermore, if you have any hair product recommendations or would like me to review any products, please leave them in the comments below.


  1. I do love the pink of all of VO5's products xo

  2. I love the packaging of V05 products, i nearly picked up the magazine just to get it, but then i had to think, do i really need another product like this! It sounds okay though :)
