How important is scent?
Well there is no real scent to this product, which WE LOVE, this is not the type of product that we would want competing with a signature scent. We also would not want that scent being heat pressed into the hair. Very light styling scent that dissipated within minutes.
How does the product feel when you use it?
Spray on in a firm mist and left the hair feeling great once we moved the straightening iron through.You can feel the hair 'smoothing' out as you use it.
How does the packaging look and hold up?
I love this packaging, overall it is one of our favorites. Big fans of the recycled aluminum, set of with the better spray trigger in Red, I love it! looks great on a station and awesome in your home. I also think the packaging SIZE is perfect. Just the right amount of control and great misting.
We put it through the paces!
We set our irons to 390 and started rocking and rolling. We tried it out on two types of hair ONE dried well with great Boar bristle brushes. The other dried fast and not as straight, more like you would do in the morning if you were in a hurry.
First the "Salon Dried Hair" worked much better then we even expected and as with all Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Care Products we expected A LOT! But man it was easy, great slip with our irons (we used three of those as well, the Amika and the ConAir Infiniti Pro, and the Kwof) All three are great Irons but the price points varied so we wanted to see how the product performed with the something that a professional would use and perhaps a client would use.
All three had great results with Flatliner Flattening Iron Serum. OK but we used it in a salon type of condition so it worked great and we really made sure the blow dry was tight and clean. Fair enough.
Second; we worked on a quick dry (normal to thick) head of hair. BAM the product rocked out. it made the hair straighten much faster, cleaner and last longer then had we not used the product. BUT remember WE are reviewing products for people to use NOT stylists so I handed the can and the iron to my client and said go. She clipped the hair out of the way, started at the bottom, misted the serum onto the hair, ran the iron through ... BAM! Same great results and it was simple and easy. The misting action of the spray nozzle really helped here we feel. Great results.
Peter Anthony and his friends share tricks of the trade!
First make sure your using a great iron, the ones we mentioned we love and the prices vary so there is really something for everyone. Mist the product from 10 inches and try to lightly move it while spraying. The great thing we found is that you do not really need to use a whole lot to get great results. Keep your tension even when using the iron so keep it at the slightest angle.
The better the dry the better the overall style, here is what NO product will do, Create a style! A great CUT and a great finish will allow all products to perform better. That being said make sure you finish your hair line and fringe areas completely, this will really help you get the right style going.
Products you will need to complete the experience
Great Brush, We love Denman so check those out but there are planty of great ones and we have revued many. A great iron, and great prep products (shampoo and conditioner). So of course you expected us to say that BUT WE SAID it because it is true "if you want great consistent results you need great tools" PERIOD!
Peter Anthony shares his last thoughts on the product
If you straighten your hair get this into the collection. is it a Stand Alone product "for sure". So you do not need to switch your line here but MOST lines will not have as strong a straightener Serum as Schwarzkopf Professional Flatliner Iron Serum. I really liked working with this.
