L'ANZA Healing Smooth Smoother Straightening Balm adds shine while encouraging a smooth, naturally straight look.
How to Use
Rated 4.35 out of 5 stars
I have been wearing my thin fine hair curly for 10 years. I used to use a L'anza product to straighten it. This month I have purchased 15 products to try to go back to straight hair. I spent $10-$70 on EACH product. I only blow dry straight, no other tools. All of the products were too heavy for my fine hair, some sticky, some just did nothing. I looked up this brand and thanks to the reviews I purchased this. First of all, the product is the same color and consistency of my fave from 10 years ago! It may be reformulated, re named and repackaged but THIS IS IT!
My hair is straight and smooth. Not sticky. Not heavy. Hair is Not frizzy. Sooooo happy.
I purchased this balm in hopes of taming my straightened naturally curly hair . After washing and conditioning I combed the balm into my curls. They were so defined even when blowdrying straight with my paddle brush the curls wanted to stay. Unfortunately, when I flat ironed my hair after that process and it puffed up within an hour. The next day my hair was extremely frizzy and puffy. On top of all of this I had a headache immediately after applying it and the headache lasted 2 more days. I was really hoping this product would work.
Disappointed from Indiana
I was excited and confident this would work....nope!!!!! Waste of money!!! Idk what everyone else is talking about because this created even more frizz and poof with my hair....its soft, but its not worth the crazy price. This product is a dud and a waste of money. I cant say enough bad things...super frustrated with this awful product

I used this WITHOUT blow drying and it didn't work at all. i didn't blow dry because i didn't want to have to every day. The next morning after i showered and used it it i straightened my naturally wavy hair, and it was so much smoother then usual.

I'm annoyed with Lanza. I have Celiac Disease and they market themselves as being "gluten free." Yet wheat is the 5th ingredient in this product. I understand most people don't understand. But I have long hair and it gets in my mouth. Thus, for someone who gets sick from wheat, this is an issue. It should be labeled correctly. Instead I'm now sick because it was in my mouth.

I heat style my hair every day from a wavy shoulder-length mess into a straight style. Other straighteners have "hold" that weighs down my hair and makes my heat styling tools all gross. This straightener is AMAZING. It feels weightless and feels like it's sinking in—it doesn't even make my hands sticky or greasy. It has no "hold." I use a Revlon OneStep tool with this straightener and my hair looks the best it has ever looked! The fragrance is very light and after using I can't smell this at all—just my shampoo/conditioner. Get this, you won't be disappointed.

I use this product nearly daily. My stylist recommended it. I apply 2 or 3 pumps to hair outside of the crown. I have naturally straight, fine, shoulder length hair with long layers. My hair is super smooth with this. No need to use a flat iron; this product does the work without the extra heat. Highly recommend!

I do not ever leave reviews, but I just had to with this recent purchase. I have been looking for something "better" than my current hair product, and L'Anza Healing Smooth Smoother Straightening Balm is everything I have been looking for and more! You will not be disappointed. It is light and it smells delicious, but not overpowering. I am so happy with this product that I just bought two more bottles.

I use this after showering while hair is damp. It not only helps straighten your hair but it protects my hair and keeps it healthy. This will always be my go to hair product!

I got this last month and have used it 4 times. I used it today and decided it was worth the money. I pumped four pumps in my hand and rubbed it in my hands first. Then ran it through the ends and back of my hair. I did this on damp hair before blow drying and using that many pumps gets the job done for me. my blow dry is
smooth and my hair is very soft. My hair is thick and wavy/curly and this is sticky, so rub together good and put it through damp hair before it dries sticky.

It makes my hair so soft! I use it with the straightening brush and it styles perfectly
kirstin from Canada
I have very damaged bleached hair. I used to straighten it and blow dry it every single day with no heat protectant, so my hair is just a mess haha. it's the damaged wavy frizzy type of hair.
about a hear ago i decided to stop using heat on my hair and started using this! i use 3-4 pumps in my hand for each side of my hair when it's damp. then i comb out my hair, then (the most important part for me) I pull my hair from root to tip down so it's smooth (not touching it again until it's dry).
Once it's done air-drying, it's frizz free and straight! This product is a miracle for me lol.

This product is great for straightening hair and protecting, but because of the color of the product it turns platinum or blonde hair to a gold darker color.
Colek3 from Columbus Ohio
This product is the best I have used in years. It is lightweight, easy to apply, not sticky or heavy or greasy. I got it on sale and there is just a huge amount of product making it a great value. My hair isn't hard to straighten but I only like to use a blowdryer to avoid damage. This products smooths my hair nicely without losing volume.

Love it and will buy again

I love the way the Lanza smoothing balm makes my hair feel. I have fine hair and this product does not weight my hair down. Will definitely buy again.
Erin from Michigan
I have been using this product for over 10 years, it's that good. It cuts your dry time in half, doesn't dry your hair out, leaves no residue behind... this product has been the only thing I trust when it comes to blow drying and straightening my hair.
Kris89 from Michigan
Such an amazing product. I use all Lanza products and somehow had no idea this existed. I have very curly hair and this really does smooth it out! I was pretty amazed as nothing has ever been able to do this great.
Supergma from San Antonio, TX
Ive used this product only a handful of times since purchasing it but so far it has worked really well. Lets hope it continues with these hot humid days!
Nety from Tampa Fl
so desapointed with that product.To pricey and make the hair very very dry
The Cheshire Cat from Atlanta, GA
This product smelled wonderful, like tropical fruit. It was easy to use and applied well. However, it just didn't seem to have much heat protectant to it. It also didn't help to straighten hair at all, although it doesn't claim that, many similar products do both. Returned as just didn't see any results. However, if you have thinner hair or chemical/dyed hair, maybe it would be a good product for you.
Anni from VA
I apply a pump or two to towel dried hair and then let my hair air dry. I have naturally wavy, fine hair, and this takes frizz and makes my hair look decent even without additional styling. I find I can easily straight or curl my hair with my straightening iron and the style stays and has little to no frizz. It also keeps it soft and really does help protect from heat damage. My hair is much less prone to split ends since using this product. Only downside - if you like to blow dry and then style your hair, this product really doesn't combat frizz in that application.
Conacon from Henderson, NV
Love using this on my color processed hair. Lightweight and it works!
Rach from Illinois
