      Comments about PHYTODÉFRISANT Botanical Straightening Balm:

      I have light brown thin, frizzy and curly hair. I have always had trouble keeping my hair straight and non frizzy the second I go outside but this keeps my hair smooth. Even right after I blow dry my hair its nice. All I have to do is straighten the small front pieces and im good to go.

        Comments about PHYTODÉFRISANT Botanical Straightening Balm:

        I have straight fine hair, but live in a high humidity area which caused my hair to frizz and lose its style. Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm really works. I add about a nickle size to my wet hair...from my ears down to the ends of my shoulder length hair...then whats left I will add to the top of my hair. Blow dry my hair and its the best I have found for my problem.

          Comments about PHYTODÉFRISANT Botanical Straightening Balm:

          I have long, straight, fine hair. This stuff is amazing. It does not weigh my hair down and leaves it smooth. I really don't need to use a straighter but this stuff helps keep the frizz out of my hair. I also notice my hair is not so greasy the next day as it usually gets with other products. I like it better than It's a 10 products. Try it!!

                  This product is amazing. You use the smallest amount on wet hair and heat set your style with a blow dryer. Your hair will resist humidity and wind, and keep shape. I wash my hair every other day and when I wake up in the morning on second day I just run my fingers through and go. You will not be disappointed.
