How to Use
Rated 4.58 out of 5 stars
I have longer hair and have no patience to spend a long time styling, so solutions like this are perfect for me. Even when my hair is in just one braid, the wavey results are perfect. With other products, I've had to spend just as much time braiding multiple braids as I would styling with hot tools to get the same look. It also holds all day with a little texture spray or hairspray. The only drawback there is that the feeling of product build-up stays long after the style has fallen out, and I feel like I have to wash my hair the day after using it. I only wash my hair 1-2 times per week, so I have to be strategic about when I want to use braid balm with that in mind. Product build-up is a fair trade-off to make when solving for all-day hold, however. Overall, love the product!
I have used this product several times before finally giving up on it. My hair is very fine and there isn't much of it. I try to avoid heat styling it as much as possible and most often, I style my hair by braiding it and sleeping in braids overnight. Typically, I will use a curling lotion that is lightweight and distribute a little bit throughout the ends. In the morning, I will spray with hairspray and the style would last at least a couple days (more when it's not super humid out). This product, sadly, didn't actually do anything. The braid wouldn't ever completely dry and the hair would be left a bit crunchy. The wave pattern would not show up as nicely and I would end up pulling my hair up in a bun because it would look so uneven (some strands are wavy while others are straight). This might work for a more beachy, messy vibe. I did enjoy the scent of the product and the packaging is absolutely breathtaking (I live in the south and purple is my favorite color), so I had to at least give a couple stars for that. But, the product itself is just not satisfying enough for me to recommend to others.

Works well in keeping the frizz and fly away's down. I braid my daughters hair at night then she sleeps in a bonnet and is ready to go in the morning. This product helps keep it neat.

I have very thick hair with internal layering to manage the thickness and shape. It's very hard to braid my hair and have it stay in place…this stuff is a game changer. My hair stays put and the braids look great! LOVE!!!

I braid my hair often and sleep in the braids and always wake up with beautiful waves. I saw this product so I decided to try it out. I woke up and just took my braids out to see a frizzy mess. Seriously, I braid my hair 2x a week and it was always perfect before this product… now I use the product and it is just frizz. Don't waste you money. Please… or let me know and I'll give you my bottle for free.

I have short (chin length) wavy hair and use this along with a leave in conditioner for the best, non-crunchy hold. My hair doesn't frizz (I live in FL) and my next-day hair is great almost all the time. Love it!

For all of my wavy haired girls that STRUGGLE to find a product that will embrace your natural wave while defrizzing and adding shine, this is for you. This has become my holy grail product that is a huge time saver! Trust me, this will not disappoint
Michelle from United States
This braid balm makes it so easy to have perfect waves with no effort at all! Love how I no longer need to apply heat to get the waves of my dreams!
Nora from United States
I read reviews and finally tried it for myself. After I showered I added this to my hair from root to ends and braided my hair, slept on it, the next day I had perfect beach waves. Best of all no frizz! I have naturally curly hair, now bleached blonde...when I normally braid my wet hair and sleep on it, the next day it's frizzy on top and my hair appears crimped... and it looks uneven and frizzy. Braid balm gives me beach-y waves, evenly, frizz-free and it looks so pretty! I love it so much, you will too! I have long hair and I used it once... it's almost 1/2 empty... that's the bad part... but I need to get on a subscription so I never run out! Smells really nice too!
I love using the braid balm! It is perfect for creating nice braids and the perfect curls!

This stuff smells so good (coconutty to me) and it is good at taming the fly-aways but after I took my braids out my hair felt super heavy and the curls were actually less enhanced than when I had braids without it. I would recommend if you don't care about having the curls after taking the braids out
Breezy L. from United States
My hair is naturally very straight and when I try to braid it overnight to get cute little waves it doesn't work unless I use this! It is absolutely amazing and I am obsessed with the smell. The packaging is also adorable and fits the theme of my bathroom so I just leave it out as a functioning decoration!
Haley M. from United States
this stuff rocks! It makes my braids so smooth and nice looking. when I take my braids down I have the best waves. it also smells so good and I get compliments whenever I use it
Analisa V. from United States
This stuff is the holy grail for effortless waves. I simply wash my hair, let it dry then run this stuff through my hair and when I wake up I have beautiful waves that I can style any way I choose. This product is so easy to use and leaves my hair smelling amazing and feeling so soft and silky. Definitely my go to for heatless frizz free waves.
Jordyn T. from United States
I love this product because it really helps with flyaways and it does not leave my hair feeling crunchy like hairspray does. I have used it to create braids and sleep with them so that my hair is wavy in the morning and I love it because my hair doesn't get frizzy. I also use this product to do slick ponytails and it works great!!
Peyton S. from United States
I love using this product to put my hair into braids before bed that way I can just wake up and have effortless beachy waves! Saves a ton of time in the mornings
Isabella S. from United States
Growing up, I have always had flat and straight hair. I used to be envious of others with voluminous, curly hair; but not anymore! I use this balm at night when my hair is damp or dry , braid it, and I wake up with beautiful curls that last multiple days and smell amazing. Not only are they beautiful, but they look so natural. This balm is a great alternative to curling your hair every single day. It will definitely be a re-buy.
Megan R. from United States
I really love using this product to keep flyaways down. It works great for a slicked back ponytail or bun as well as braids!
Alvina C. from United States
I always braid my hair to get a waved hairstyle in the morning and now that I have a pre-braid balm, I cannot stop using it! My hair feels so moisturized after taking it out of the braids. This is my new best friend!!
Bri I. from United States
I use a lot of heat on my hair. On days I take a break from the heat I thrown in a braid using the braid balm, and voila! The prettiest heatless waves that last all day.
Courtney R. from United States
I've always struggled when it came to doing braids in my hair. My braids were either frizzy or not smooth, and I couldn't get it the way I wanted it to look! When I got my Braid Balm my braid game changed! Doing braids in my hair is so much easier to do, and they look 10x better than they did before I used the balm!
Alicia A. from United States
I genuinely love this braid balm. It smells heavenly! It truly holds your waves. Keeps hair smooth and shiny! Recommendfor anyone who wants flawless waves.
Giselle Z. from United States
I have never had hydrated and defined waves like this! This works so well and you will not regret purchasing it!
Anshika W. from United States
This is honestly the best thing ever. I use the braid balm in my hair before I braid my hair and leave them be overnight. The next morning, my hair is so beautifully wavey with little to no frizz at all, and I can literally just walk out of the house with perfectly styled hair. I also use it before I curl my hair to tame my frizz. and my curls come out so nice and shiny with literally no frizziness at all. A really genius product and gives your hair looks that salon-styled look!!
