My experience: Estel Professional Curex Repair Split Ends Serum For All Hair Types comes in a clear plastic bottle with pump packed in a white cardboard box (not shown).

The texture of this serum is not oily but somewhat thick and viscous, however it's a bit runny to my taste. The serum is absolutely clear in color, just like water. The scent is indifferent but pleasant, it's not overpowering or annoying, so I'm ok with it.

Since it's not stated in the instructions if it should be applied on the wet or dry hair, I tried both ways. And didn't get any results at all! It claims to moisturize and nourish the hair but after using it the hair just feels dry and fragile. I didn't see any positive changes in condition of the ends of my hair. I tried to use more of the serum, I tried to use less, in the end, because of hopelessness, I tried to add this to a hair mask that didn't work for my hair as well... And this combination kind of worked but I was not satisfied anyways (* ̄m ̄)

BTW, the serum doesn't contain silicones. Maybe I am used to silicone-based hair care products and how silky and soft my hair feels after using them... But in my opinion, if it's stated as moisturizing and nourishing product, it must be  moisturizing and nourishing! 

So just another useless 'salon quality' product... I'll just use what is left in the bottle and be sure, I won't repurchase, not for love or money. 

ps If you know of a good serum / treatment for split ends, please, let me know!

  2. Problem with these products is that nothing can really cure split ends, once they're split they're split, hair is dead once it's out of your skull so it's up to you to not make it break because that's how you know when to cut it - you should be using a preventing treatment if anything :)

    1. I know that there's no cure foe ends once they split, but I use split ends serums as a preventing treatment because they make ends moisturized so they are less fragile and don't break that easily. This one promises to make hair moisturized and nourished but it doesn't so I think it's absolutely useless.

  3. I agree with Kaleido, nothing can cure the hair once it split, it only can be trimmed. I think all this split ends treatments are preventing and I gon't wait more from them.

    1. I agree with you, I only don't like products that don't live up to their claims like this one. No moisturized and nourished hair here T_T
