    Comments about Wella Brilliance Leave In Balm:

    I have thick color treated hair, cut in a medium length bob. Its a struggle keeping my hair looking as great as it did when I leave the salon. This product is a great one to reduce the frizz and add shine. It seemed to make styling easier as well.

        Comments about Wella Brilliance Leave In Balm:

        Looked for something that smelled great and helped to tone down the frizzing. This smells amazing and does help with the frizzing to some extent. The flat iron then finishes it.

          It comes as a pump spray, but much better when sprayed in hands and then worked through hair.

              Comments about Wella Brilliance Leave In Balm:

              So i have never wrote about or rated a product ever but I feel this one deserves recognition. I use this product after I shower while my hair is still wet. It leaves my hair so soft and controls my frizz like no other product I have used. I naturally have super thick curly/wavey hair but I also like to straighten it when I have time. This product is great for all styles, leaving my hair really shiny and I can even leave my hair to dry naturally and it doesn't poof up or frizz like crazy. I don't typically like to use a lot of product but ever since I started using this one it has definitely made managing my hair a lot easier and have gotten a lot of compliments on it. :)

                        I have thick wavy hair & due to hypothyroidism I have very dry hair. The Wella leave in balm was fantastic! It left my hair soft & controlled the frizz. I did discover that it's better to spray the product into my hands first, rub between my palms & then administer to hair. You get better coverage.

                        • Q:

                          I have been using the Wella Enrich moisturizing treatment for fine hair but I am out so when I ordered the Wella Brilliance shampoo and conditioner during your most recent sale. I saw the Brilliance balm and also ordered it hoping it would replace my Wella Enrich moisturizing treatment but now I'm wondering if I should use the Brilliance Balm plus get some of the Brilliance treatment for fine/normal, Colored hair and use them at the same time. Do you recommend using these two products together or is one enough?

                            A:

                            Yes, since the Brilliance Treatment For Fine/Normal, Colored Hair is a weekly intensive rinse-out treatment, you can certainly use it together in your regimen with the Brilliance Leave In Balm. Once or twice weekly depending on your hair condition, the Treatment would replace your conditioner after shampooing. Once hair is fully rinsed and towel-dried, then you would apply the Leave-In Balm. We hope this helps, and we think you'll see wonderful results! :-)
