I had read a lot about this product but after trying it I wasn't impressed with how dry my hair felt. If you are looking for a natural product then this is definitely it as it has a high level of plant extracts. It even feels and smells like the sap of a plant. But if you have very thick afro hair like I have then it may not suit you. I had heard this product was good for getting rid of frizz but it left by hair feeling drier than before. For a product that is designed for curly hair (which is often dry) I would have thought that it would have at least left it softer but my hair was only slightly smoother but much much drier. It's quite expensive and I do think that you get what you pay for in terms of the actual ingredients in the product, which are of a high quality, but for me it just wasn't effective and I won't be buying it again.
Having tried pretty much every straightener there is, I can conclusively state this is the best. And yes, its another one that costs £. If you've got thick, curly or wavy hair, like me, you've probably found that some straighteners work well while blowdrying, but that your hair seems to curl up again half an hour later. This is due to excess moisture - a common mistake with this hair type is to overcondition. To achieve straight, sleek hair that will stay that way for a reasonable length of time, you need to choose clear products rather than creamy looking ones - these will coat your hair and make it thicker and harder to manage. This balm is clear and gives the nearest result to a salon you'll probably achieve at home. It leaves your hair clean and tangle free and, if you blowdry it properly (I recommend using a large airbrush) it'll give really straight results. Again, don't use too much cos its expensive and you don't need to...and keep it away from your roots or they'll be greasy.
