BzzAgent Review: Smooth 'N Shine Semi-Permanent Hair Tamer

Hello everyone!  Today I'm doing a BzzAgent review on Smooth 'N Shines's Keratin Power Semi-Permanent Hair Tamer. My BzzKit contained 1 box of the hair tamer and coupons.  This hair tamer is available in Regular (for fine to average hair) and Super (for average to coarse hair). I chose the hair tamer in Super because my hair is coarse.  My hair is relaxed, so this is a review on how this product worked on my relaxed hair. * This product is not a hair straightener (relaxer) it is a hair tamer.

Front of box

A gentler, more manageable approach to taming your curls and frizz than relaxing. Keratin 4 + Aloe breakthrough chemistry offers lasting versatility, giving you the KERATIN POWER to choose whether you want to wear hair styled straight or "wash & go" manageable curls after one use! Transforms hair with up to 5X less damage than relaxers and *lasts up to 6 weeks on treated growth (or 5 washes)! This treatment is a gentle, semi-permanent taming product that won't damage hair structure by breaking hair bonds the way other permanent chemical treatments do, and will have a gradual and cumulative effect the more you use it! Great for root touch ups (not a root straightener) or taming in between relaxer use.

Back of box

It came with 1 protein Smoothing Treatment, 1 Neutralizing Milk, and 1 Olive and Tea Tree Nourishing Deep Recovery Conditioner. 

Step 1: Protein Smoothing Treatment, with breakthrough chemistry of keratin 4 + aloe that smooths and tames the hair while making styling more manageable and versatile!

Step 2: Neutralizing Milk, contains active sealers to complete and preserve the semi-permanent taming effect of treated hair for up to 6 weeks ( or 5 washes)!

Neutralizing Milk

Smooth 'N Shine Olive and Tea Tree Nourishing Deep Conditioner 

I used the deep conditioner after I finished step 1 and step 2. It says to leave it on for 1 minute, but I  put on a shower cap and left in on for 10 minutes.

Before and After

*My camera was acting weird the day I took my before photo, so that's why my hair is showing up yellow.   

 My before photo is a picture of my hair before I used the product. My ends are frizzy. I didn't flat iron my hair. The after photo is a picture of my hair after I used the product and flat ironed my hair.


My hair is currently past my shoulders. I get my hair relaxed every 3-4 months with a relaxer from Dr. Miracle's. My mom is the one that does my relaxers.  I had my last relaxer in April. I only flat iron my hair 1-2 times a month, & I either wear my hair straight, curly, or I have it in braids. I wanted to try this hair tamer because it claimed that it tames frizz. My hair has been very frizzy lately due to the heat wave that my state and other states are experiencing. 

I like the fact that there are only two steps. No mixing required! After using this product, I saw that my hair was less frizzy after it dried. My hair usually looks like a lion's mane after I wash, condition, and dry it :) The hair tamer was very easy to use, and I applied it myself. I was concerned that my hair would feel brittle after using it, but that was not the case. My hair felt healthy and it looked shinier. My hair felt stiff while I was washing out the Protein Smoothing Treatment, but it turned back soft when I used the Neutralizing Milk.  The thing that bothered me about this hair tamer was the smell. The smell is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!! The Protein Smoothing Treatment smelled like rotten eggs. I'm very sensitive to strong smells and this smell was overwhelming. Overall, I think that this hair tamer is ok. It states that you'll get better results the more you use it. I'm not sure that I would use this product again because of the smell. 

The suggested retail price of this product is $8.99. You can purchase it at Walgreens,, Sally Beauty Supply and other stores nationwide.  You can visit, where famous stylist and spokesperson for the Smooth N' Shine brand, Larry Sims, will personally show you how to tame curls and frizz at home with ease with a step-by-step instructional video on how the use Smooth 'N Shine Keratin Power Semi-Permanent Hair Tamer. Thanks for reading and have a great day!!

Have you tried this hair tamer? Did you like it?

I like the smooth end result. But you are right, foul smell really ruins the experience.
