Birchbox Breakdown

When temperatures rise, most of us become lazier. Luckily for our locks, amikaTM’s Straight Up Smoothing Balm is actually activated by heat to get the job done. The lightweight straightening balm creates a sleek, long-lasting look by defending against heat damage and minimizing frizz (in part by warding off humidity). While it’s perfect for dry, frizzy, and unmanageable hair, it works on all hair types, including color-treated.

How to Use

Apply balm to damp hair. Separate into sections, and blow-dry one by one. To up the straightness factor, finish by flat-ironing.

Excellent fragrance and feel
Purchased

I love this lightweight product. The fragrance is absolutely amazing! I used it before styling my hair and then the day after to nourish the ends.

Very good for extensions as it doesn't make them oily.

This hair balm is great! I've always had such issues with my frizzy, not curly/not straight hair! I've grown tired of trying my hair with a straightener or curling iron everyday, so decided to give this product a try. I put a quarter size amount of this product into my wet hair before blow drying. Overall, this product tames the frizz and helps my hair straighten out without the straightening iron!
