Comments about Phytodefrisant 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 Phytodefrisant 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.

                            Please consult the manufacturer of your extensions or the professional stylist who performed your extension service prior to use. Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm is designed to soften and smooth frizzy, unruly hair.
