Salon Science Serum
Salon Science Serum

I’ve had the Salon Science Reglosse Smoothing Serum in my testing box for a little while and kept forgetting to use it. I am kicking myself now because it’s become an instant favourite – and proof to me that a hair serum is not just a hair serum. Salon Science is a complicated brand to explain – there are bits of me that eye-roll a little bit at the ‘science’ but then, this stuff is really good! So, I’m having to suspend my scepticsm for a little while. On the back of the serum, I also tried the Scalp Soothing Shampoo – my scalp doesn’t need soothing, but I gave it a go anyway. It turns out to be a rather brilliant shampoo – I like my hair to feel really, really clean and the Salon Science shampoo left it feeling exactly that, like a detox shampoo, but with none of the stripped feel.

Salon Science uses plant bio-actives (pea shoots and Swiss apple for example) and stem cell technology, the combination of which is new to hair care. I have to be honest and say that I personally don’t believe that plant stem cells can do anything to humans at all, but something is working in this range! There are four ranges – each one addressing a specific issue. Anti-ageing and Volume (and yet no pictures in the model line-up of older women?), Hair Loss, Repair & Radiance and Scalp Relief. There are 18 products in the line up (all at Boots) and the pricing (approx £15 for shampoo) puts it firmly in the luxury market.

Back to the Salon Science Reglosse Smoothing Serum. It’s feather-light and gives all the softening and relaxing to your hair, but with none of the weigh-down. Sometimes I feel I’ve undone all the good work of cleaning my hair when I slop the serum on afterwards because although most serums will give you a smoothing effect, it’s sometimes accompanied by a greasy feel. So, none of that with Salon Science Smoothing Serum. I’d definitely pay the £18 for it (although the range is on 3 for 2 at Boots HERE).

It does contain silicones – the ingredient list is here:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone, Helianthus Annuus Hybrid Oil, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Parfum, Tocopherol, Vitis Vinifera Seed Extract, Citronellol, Limonene, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone.
