      Comments about Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm:

      This product is awesome. I have highlighted, fine, wavy hair. I've used this product for years. It makes my hair so soft. I've tried combining this with other leave in products before blow drying, but I really think it works best all on its own. This is the only product I use before blow drying and it really is all that is needed. It's very lightweight, odorless, and makes your hair so soft. Whenever I've strayed from this product, (you know when you read about some other miracle product), I always end up going back to this. For me, this is it. I'm sick of wasting money on the next best thing, because I don't think it gets better then this.

        Comments about Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm:

        I read a review of this product in one of my magazine's - i had used Pyto products before so i decided to give it a try AND AM GLAD THAT I DID! The product does require heat (hair dryer) or flat iron/ curling iron if you air dry to work. But,...... it does, and is worth every penny (it's a little pricey). I have very baby fine hair so I did not need much - so hopefully the tube will last me a good while.

          I read a lot of good things and wanted to try it despite the cost. I did read that the feel was a little strange (like liquid dish detergent) but you only need very little, it goes a long way. I feel my hair is protected during heat styling with a flat iron, and my hair stays straight for days!

            Because of the price, I would never have purchased this product. I received a FREE coupon from Ulta so I was more than happy to try it! This product is amazing. People have been complimenting me on how smooth my hair looks. The more you use it, the better it looks. I don't need to use much for my below shoulder length hair. It will last for quite some time. I will now be a repeat customer because I have found an awesome product thanks to that free Ulta coupon. THANKS ULTA!!

                  I have very unmanageable hair, this product did the trick for me, it nourishes, it protects against heat (it's the only way it work for me by the way with heat) it leaves your hair looking & feeling healthy. I love Phytologies Phytodefrisant!

                  Comments about Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm:

                  I don;t style my hair very often. I have naturally wavy hair, which means that most of the time I put a curling styling product in my hair, blowdry it upside down, and live with curly hair. But I like my hair straight. And I can;t use a straightening iron to save my life because my hair isn't long enough to flip it under. So I'm left with blowdrying it with a round brush. I'm getting better at it, but my hair is always frizzy from the flyaway strands that don't get caught in the brush.

                  There comes in this miracle product. A nickle-to-quarter sized drop of product thoroughly mixed on my hands and run through my hair (both right side up and upside down) makes it so much easier to blow dry my hair. the hair stays in the brush, it doesn't fly away like it use to, it has body from the brushing and the bot air, and my hair looks so silky smooth it's unbelievable.

                  I was supposed to get a free sample of this product with a coupon I got from ulta. But my store never received any of the product. So I bought the full-sized bottle and I'm so happy I did. It makes blowing out my hair a joy instead of a chore!

                  I also like the fact that you can put a TINY bit on your hair the next day and blow it out and still have great results. Not as great as when you put it on towel-dryed hair, but it still holds it's style nicely.

                      A:

                      Phytodefrisant is heat activated, so for best results, we recommend using as directed. Apply to damp hair. Comb through to distribute evenly. Do not rinse. Continue with heat-styling. Follow with PhytoPhytolisse serum for the sleekest sheen you've ever experienced.
