Most Helpful Positive Review INCREDIBLE results!
I have thick, wavy color-processed hair down to my bra strap...an unruly wavy.... (I could never get extensions put in because of the sheer amount of my hair....) When I get out of the shower, my hair is wild..... When I read about this product and saw a video of the super shiny hair, I RAN to find this. And I have to tell you, I am speechless.
First, it is odorless to me and does NOT weigh my hair down. If anything, my hair has more volume, is LESS heavy...I used as directed at first (putting on twice) but as reviews say - it DOES require less and less as you go. Results accumulate.
My hair is SO shiny, my husband can't keep his hands off of it. It is gorgeous....and feels so soft. My hair has NEVER felt like this in my life. I run my fingers through it....so luscious.
Since I switched to Orofluido as my hair serum, I feel like my hair morphed into something out of a model shoot. Where has this been all my life?
If you haven't tried it, give yourself the gift of a lifetime and try it. You will use less and less as time goes on....
I wash my hair every other day, use flat irons (much less now that I have this!), curling irons and hot rollers occasionally...but honestly, since I've started using this product, my hair is just gorgeous out the gate without needing all the heated styling options. Who knew?? P.S. I'm 45 and while most women my age don't wear their hair this long, they haven't tried this product and gotten this gorgeous result!
Most Helpful Critical Review Won't buy again
Did not see any better outcome from using this product than when I just use a leave-in conditioner. I live in Houston, TX and it is VERY humid here at least 6 months out of the year. I did not see any difference in helping my hair be less frizzy. My scalp gets oily quickly so you have to be careful not to put too much product on the roots as it can weigh down and become greasy more quickly.

ATLEvie from Atlanta, Ga
I love this straightening balm and I won't blow dry my hair without it. It makes my hair bone straight and gives me that extra sheen. It does not weigh my hair done either. I tried this during one of those hair event sales and I got it 50% off now I still buy it at full price.... that how much I love it!!
Jefe from TX
use it to blow dry and straighten my hair
Great product for frizz!
H Parker from Roanoke, VA
The first time I ever used this product was from a free sample I received. I've enjoyed it ever since. I have naturally curly hair and I use this after washing when I want my hair straightened and it really helps with keeping the frizz tamed and making my hair look sleeker.
Jaytee61 from Colorado
My hair takes forever to dry; it is fine but there is a lot of it. It holds moisture and therefore easily gets frizzy and puffy. Nothing has worked as well as this to give me normal looking, smooth hair. Love it.
I have used this ptoduct since the 90's.
DONNA from Laguna Niguel
It straightens without leaving product residue. I have very thick hair that tangles easily. It's pricey, but worth it I have used this product since the 90's and can't find anything I like as well
Helps reduce frizz in humid weather
H3188T from Fernandina Beach FL
I use this product as the last step after wahing, towel drying and putting in any gel or cream products. Works well in my tight curls to keep them more manageable, less frizzy and detangled especially in very humid weather.
Works well with PHYTOJOBA Moisturizing Care Gel
Kristen from philadelphia
i use this with the PHYTOJOBA Moisturizing Care Gel and it works well, my hair is sleeker and less frizzy. when i used this alone, i didnt notice a big difference and my hair looked a lot thicker.
Did not work for Straightening or Smoothing
Sadie from SCV
This product did nothing to help smooth out my hair, in fact, I could not run my fingers through my hair and had to tug at my hair to get my brush through it while blow drying. I have wavy hair and blow dry it to straighten it but this did not help with frizzing either.
Julie from LA, CA
This product worked. I've only used it once, so I can't comment on its performance long term. Though, I was pretty impressed with how it transformed my hair without killing the volume. Looking forward to using it again. Apparently, the more I use it the better results I'm supposed to see.
Kai from Seattle WA
This is the best straightening product, I wish I hadn't waited so long to give it a try! The good reviews are there for a reason! It keeps my wavy, coarse, unruly strands manageable and silky for days! I have already bought more!
It Works! See pic
Happylovejoy from VA
Since the pic of my straightened hair didn't post, with my first review, I'm adding it here. This Balm works so well, it takes little effort to straighten my very curly hair. (Dear Moderators, if you are able to put this photo into my previous review and delete this one, that would be much appreciated.)
It Works!! Curls Stretch with Just a Blow Dryer. (see pics)
Happylovejoy from VA
As a curly girl, I must admit that no matter how happy I am with a hair product, I will never be able to refrain from trying others...that's why I purchased 4 Phyto products yesterday. This morning I washed with Phytojoba Moisturizing Shampoo and used no conditioner (because I didn't buy a Phyto conditioner and only wanted to use this brand when testing for the first time). After removing excess water from my hair, I applied 4 pumps of the Phytokeratine Extreme Exceptional Creme, distributed it with my fingers and repeated again with 4 more pumps for a total of 8 pumps for my hair type and length. Next I applied the Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm and let my hair air dry for 1 hour before blow drying. When it came time to dry my hair, I let it all hang down, and began holding the ends of a section in the front-side and dried it from roots to ends while keeping it taut. When I felt it was dry, I let it go and it was wavy-straight! I continued throughout the rest of my hair with no particular order of what section I would dry next. It's not stick straight and I love that about it because blow drying it very straight makes it look limp and too flat. With Phyto's straightening balm I'm able to "relax" my curls with heat and hands as my only tools. Below is a pic of my hair in its natural curly state and also a pic of my hair after the Straightening Balm, using the method described above.
UltaEvie from Atlanta
I love this balm. It works great on my hair. It does exactly what it says straightens!! And it does not weigh my hair down.
I would buy this over & over, love it
Vana from San Diego, CA
I apply this product on damp hair before I blow dry my hair and I also apply out of the shower when I just slick my hair back or put up when I'm not blow drying hair out
Best antifrizz product out there!
Lynn from PA
Apply right before blow drying. Makes hair controlled and soft
Exceeded my expectations
Casandra from Florida
I have wavy hair that gets frizzed easily I live in south Florida so the humidity is real and I even walked in a drizzle and my hair didn't frizz or curl up. Perfect for those times you need your hair to stay straight for an event and you have to be in and out and never know what weather you'll be faced with
LiZa from Tucson, Az
I was not expecting a magic change after using this product, but I didn't see any change in my frizzy hair and I followed the instructions correctly. I don't have very dry/damaged hair so... :/
Dry hair got you gown?
Ali from Newark,de
I got this in a sample box for xmas one year.I hate spending a lot of money but this is worth it.Use about a dime sized amount for shoulder length hair.Just rub it between you hands and put in your towel dried hair.Make sure its damp not wet or your hair will be frizzy.Blow dry and straighten.Its weird that when you blow dry your hair,it holds the volume.Almost like a hairspray would but without that stiff feeling.Hair is soft and shiny.
Best for frizz
PC from Upstate NY
Best antifrizz product I have ever used. Product is cumulative so the longer you use it, the better it works and the longer its effects last. I have struggled with frizz in humid climates all my life and have finally grown my hair longer and it has remained sleek even in the most humid weather.
This is a staple in my house.
Allycat from Virginia
I have kinky hair and I use just a little of this gel to help stretch my curls. You do have to be mindful of how much you use because it leaves a residue if you use too much.
I have used tis product for years.
JellyBean from Phoenix, AZ
I have used this product for years. It helps with fizzy hair in humidity. I only use it on wet hair after shampooing.
m from huntington
works very well, have been using it for years. only need about a dime size for my hair
asherfin from WI
I love, love, love this product. It does not weigh my hair down and makes it silky smooth. It's worth the cost but even better if you can get it on sale. This is my second purchase, a little goes a long way but if you accidentally apply too much you won't be a greasy mess.
Best hair straightening product on the market.
Phyto from Orange County, CA
I always use before blow drying, it helps straighten, eliminate frizz and keeps my hair healthy.
The Cheshire Cat from Atlanta, GA
I bought this to help straighten wavy, thick hair. No. It doesn't straighten or heat protect on its own. It is very sticky to apply and comb through. However, at least it doesn't stink like some of the other Phyto stuff does, so it gets 2 stars. It really doesn't have a smell at all (see Phyto, you are capable of not making products reek!). But it didn't do anything either. Maybe it works better for processed hair or for holding curls.
