Does anyone here use serums?

I have been experimenting with Fantasia Frizz Buster Serum after CWC with Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and conditioner and my hair comes out pretty frizz free yet fluffy/voluminous. It also works well for me with Dove Shampoo and GVP Paul Mitchell the Detangler.
2a/M-C/ii hair. Super long.

    No, like most serums, the Fantasia Frizz Buster serum is almost nothing but silicones, which most of us don't use, especially when so concentrated.

    Mark (Avon spinoff) makes a silicone-free serum. I like it ok, but actually liked the curl cream better for smoothing out dry (meaning not wet) hair. The curl cream DOES have silicones but the serum does not.

    In general, no to serums, I like things that are, well, heavier, that add substance to the hair and sort of weigh it down a little, that feels good to me and looks better.
