            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.

                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!!

                          Unfortunately, It is heat activated.

                          We recommend using PHYTO SPECIFIC Curl Legend Curl Energizing Spray to create frizz free curls that are soft and bouncy!

                      • Q:

                        I have read different instructions for this product on different websites. Can it be applied after conditioner? Does hair need to be towel dried or sopping wet? Can it be applied after every wash or is it a hair treatment for once a week use?

                          It can be applied after every wash and everyday before styling your hair. It is heat activated so best used with heat.
