Simply Smooth Xtend Magic Potion review and giveaway

Simply Smooth xtend Reparative Magic Potion

You’ve read about the Simply Smooth line previously on Beauty Info Zone when Lisa reviewed the line HERE. At the time the company offered a free (very) deluxe sample size of Simply Smooth Xtend Reparative Magic Potion to our readers. Considering I read the blog I took advantage of the freebie along with lots and lots of others.  Xtend Reparative Magic Potion is one segment of Simply Smooth’s Keratin Treatment line. The good news is that you don’t need to have a keratin treatment to get the benefits of these products. They work for anyone who wants simply smooth hair. While it won’t banish the frizz for weeks or months at a time, it will banish it for the days it’s on your hair.

When this arrived and I started using it, I totally understood why Lisa raved about Simply Smooth and Xtend Magic Potion in particular. My keratin process is almost all grown out and I’ve done some experimenting with other products. Xtend was the first one I tried and it’s going to stay in my repertoire. It is quite magical. My hair is easy to manage, has much less frizz and looks as good the day after washing as it does on the day I’ve used it. Plus I need so little on my shoulder length hair that it’s actually economical.

I decided to ask some people on a chat room called Beauty Bling what they thought of the product since quite a few people had also sent away for this when it was offered (thank you ladies for following Beauty Info Zone). Therefore I’m taking the liberty of sharing their thoughts, unedited thoughts I might add, so you can see it’s not just me. There was only one person that answered my question that wasn’t crazy about the product, of course it’s possible that others didn’t like it and didn’t answer. Check out other testimonials:

“I love the scent and it makes my hair very soft.”

“The first time I tried it, I wasn’t clear on what else I ‘needed’ when I read the directions (probably a no pain no headache moment), so I put a bit of AG straightener in my hair too. Loved the way my hair was super shiny and didn’t feel greasy or weighed down. My hair stayed straight for several days too. Yay!
The second time I used it, I was letting my naturally curly hair air dry. I was hoping to keep the frizzies away. Happily, my hair is wavy, not frizzy, and I don’t think I’ll have to do anything other than refresh my hair tomorrow with some water and scrunch. I really, really like this product!”

“I’m not a hair product person at all…I usually use nothing because they all make me break out and never seem to do much for my hair, but I’ve used this twice so far and I actually like it.”

“I used it today for the first time to do a partial blow-dry on my hair. My hair feels awesome. Very nice. Thanks again, Marcia. UPDATE: When I picked up my teenage daughter today, she asked me what I did different to my hair today. She said that it looks a lot better than usual, and that my bangs weren’t ‘weird’ the way they usually are, and that it made my highlights stand out more!”

Ya know, I think I may really like this stuff….My problem is knowing how much to use…I desperately neet a haircut so there isn’t much I can do with my hair right now but it is healthier feeling and shinier for sure….seems to add some volume as well….I pretty much think this is a keeper…”

“I think I seriously love this stuff…hair is soft and shiny..and I only had to use this 1 product..and it smells awesome…”

“I love the scent!!! I used it today and my hair feels so soft.”

“I tried this over the weekend, and it didn’t work for me. I have long thick hair, and this stuff made it harder to manage and straighten. It feels soft, but it just doesn’t work with my hair’s texture.”

 

This is how I use Magic Potion – I wash, condition and then lightly towel dry. I spritz some of the Xtend onto my hair and comb the product into my hair. Then I blow dry. Xtend Reparative Magic Potion acts not only as my styling cream but it’s also a leave in conditioner. Since it’s keratin infused it helps add shine as well as eliminates frizz. This summer my hair has known the definition of frizz first hand so using this has become essential. Plus when/if I end up with another treatment it will help extend the life of the keratin treatment. Here’s a short video if you want to see how easy it is to use.

The product is $27 for 8.5 fl. oz. which will last you forever since you need so little. Simply Smooth does what it promises to do – keeps my hair smooth and tangle free and most important frizz free. This summer hasn’t been good for people whose hair tends to frizz but Xtend Magic Potion is doing its best to change that for me. — Marcia

Simply Smooth Keratin Treatment Line by American Culture

I get pretty excited about really good hair care.  I have found that with my hair, products make a HUGE difference.  My hair has multiple personalities:  I either have limp, dull, frizzy hair, or I have thick, smooth and shiny hair with tons of body.  And it’s all completely dependent on my shampoo, conditioner, and styling products, so when I find a line that works wonders for me, I can’t wait to share.  Simply Smooth by American Culture Hair has fantastic products, and I am officially a customer for life.  Today’s review is of the basics in the Simply Smooth line, which is based on keratin.  In fact, they say Simply Smooth products are ‘texture management though the art of keratin.”
 
What is keratin and why is it so important?  Keratin naturally occurs in hair, but it can be depleted from chemical treatments and the environment, leaving your hair dull and lifeless with split ends and frizz.  Keratin gives hair fibers new health, leaving them vibrant and super shiny.  Simply Smooth uses the highest quality keratin and botanicals, and are sodium chloride free.  All of these products help to extend the life of a spa keratin treatment, although they are also really terrific just on their own.
 

Simply Smooth Xtend Shampoo

xtend keratin replenishing shampoo ($25):  I find this to be a fabulous shampoo with a light lather and a beautiful fresh scent.  It would work for all hair textures, and it seals the hair cuticle for amazing shine.  The scent is so pretty, it smells of citrus and vanilla.  Another bonus:  it’s sodium chloride free.

Simply Smooth Conditioner

 xtend keratin replenishing conditioner ($25): This is a wonderful light conditioner that works great on my oily scalp/dry ends.  It has a hydrating formula that works for all hair types, plus that same gorgeous fragrance that smells so clean and fresh.   The formula has the highest quality keratin that goes into hair fibers to seal the cuticle, hydrate, and give massive shine.

If you need more serious help with dry hair, try the deep conditioner:

Simply Smooth Xtend Deep Conditioner

 xtend keratin replenishing deep conditioner ($25):  This is a deeply penetrating yet lightweight conditioner.  It’s especially great for fine, limp hair, or chemically treated hair.  It also really helps to prolong keratin treatments.

For some real magic, you have to try the Magic Potion:

Simply Smooth xtend Reparative Magic Potion

 xtend keratin reparative magic potion ($25):  This is an absolute must have styling product.  It’s a styling cream and leave in conditioner that magically fixes every single thing – for real.  I am not kidding.  Like all the other products in this line, it works overtime to extend keratin treatments.  It works great alone or ‘cocktailed’ with other products.  Just apply it to damp hair and watch the magic happen – it repairs elasticity, smooths split ends, and provides thermal protection.  Plus it detangles, gets rid of frizz, and gives major shine.  My mom actually called me to tell me about this product – a friend of hers was using it, and my mom said it was so great it practically made her friend’s hair sparkle! 

And for an at-home salon smoothing treatment, just wait until you try the Touch of Keratin:

Simply Smooth Touch of Keratin

 Touch of Keratin ($50):  This special treatment product reduces texture and frizz, smoothing hair like crazy.  It’s great for travel or touching up a salon keratin treatment, or for special occasions.  You just spray on damp hair, blow dry, then flat-iron.  It’s a keratin filler that restores hair’s natural keratin without leaving your hair limp.  Depending on how often you shampoo, your results can last up to 30 days. 

Here’s my hair a few days after doing this treatment:

Simply Smooth Touch of Keratin hair treatment

 My hair was super soft, incredibly shiny, and smoother than smooth.  It looked like I had just gotten a salon treatment, although it didn’t last as long as the salon version does.  I wash my hair every other day, and I had noticeable results for three weeks.

I love this line.  The products work amazingly well together, and they also play well with other lines.  Every day I use these I am happy with my hair, and I am just as happy with my second day hair.  You can’t ask for anything more from your hair products.  There are quick product tip videos on the website, and you can also find a salon near you that sells the product line via the site.  It is absolutely worth checking out!!  – Lisa
