Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Relaxing Balm leaves even the most rebellious locks shiny and manageable. Super skinny complex displaces water and constricts hair to speed up drying and styling, while humidity-resistant styling agents provide memory in any weather.

Added bonus: Helps hair dry faster, fights frizz and delivers incredible memory.
Rub 2 to 4 pumps into hands and apply evenly to damp hair. Style as desired.

    Comments about Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Relaxing Balm:

    I've tried hundreds of leave-in conditioners that are marketed for controlling frizz. I mostly stuck to sprays because I was afraid gels and "balms" like this one would be too sticky and heavy. BUT this product is amazing. It's the only thing that truly controls my frizz, especially around my face as I have a lot of baby flyaways that get incredibly frizzy at the first sign of humidity. It doesn't leave my hair feeling sticky, greasy, etc. but instead light and soft.

    It does not STRAIGHTEN (which I was not looking for so I am perfectly okay with it), just relaxes and smooths. I have wavy hair and this product cuts the frizz and creates a more regular wave so I can wear my hair naturally rather than flat ironing it. I put a few pumps of this in my hair while damp, can sleep on it, and wake up still frizz-free. This is the only product I will buy from now on.

      Comments about Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Relaxing Balm:

      This is my second time trying this product. My hair is coarse and wavy/curly but I prefer my hair straight. I thought this product will really relax my hair, It does speed up dry time but it leaves my hair SO puffy and not shinny. I will not recommend this product unless you want an afro.

        I would cry forever if this product gets discontinued. I have curly hair, and I use this product with Paul Mitchel's Super Skinny Shampoo, and man, does that combo smooth my hair. I towel-dry my hair a little bit, brush my hair, put product in my hair and brush again, and blow-dry.

            The lady at the counter recommended this product for static in my hair. I thought this was for static but it isn't, it's for frizzy hair. There are many other hair products that are similar and cheaper that would probably do the same. Was not impressed.

              use this product daily on wet hair. Have been issuing it for the past 6 years and love it. My hair is curly but since I cut it short I've straighten it every day. And this product makes it easier.

              This is great for me because I have unruly, damaged, wavy hair. I need something that would relax my hair and put some weight to it. I love this product but the reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I'm still searching for something a little bit stronger to relax my hair.

                I have pretty curly hair however I never realized this until almost high school so the poodle look was an unfortunate norm. (thanks Mom...). I've found my favs for when I straighten my hair.. and different musts for curly. Never have I been able to pull off that awesome wavy' beach' look until last week! Love Love Love this!

                    Is the super skinny balm good for using in conjunction with the super skinny serum? Will it fight the humidity of Georgia. I have curly hair whcih I straighten.

                      Yes, Super Skinny Serum smooths and conditions hair, sealing strands and leaving hair silky, shiny and frizz-free. Super Skinny Relaxing Balm smooths and controls hair for a humidity resistant finish. Both products speed up drying time
