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.
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.
Smells amazing!! I really love the way this makes my hair feel and smell. It smooths my hair nicely. I can't go a day without it!5
This product helps get my otherwise unruly hair super straight and helps to keep it that way! Bonus, it smells incredible AND is good for your hair!5
Smells great and does a great job smoothing. I put this in, blow dry, and straighten.... Then my hair feels like absolute silk!5
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!5
I have really frizzy hair and this helps maintain it. It also makes it really soft. I only use it in the ends of my hair because it does make my hair a little oilier the next day if I put it on my scalp, which is kind of a given for all straightening products. It works really great if you take the time to blow dry it straight. It doesnt take much at all either. This bottle will probably last me six more months at least.4
Omg so I live in Central Texas…AKA HUMIDITY. I blew out with my hair straight with this product and went out into the rain/humid world that I live with and my hair didn't frizz, get puffy, and pretty much stayed straight throughout the whole day. I was very impressed. And the smell is amazing too. so can't beat that!!5
I have used this twice now, and have been exposed to the oppressive humidity of a South Florida summer and rainy weather. My hair normally frizzes immediately in the humidity, and forget about even a little bit of rain…however, my hair stayed straight and did not get frizzy both days I used it. I really like amika products, and this one is especially outstanding.5
I (accidentally) received a full size of the Smoothing Balm in my last Birchbox order and upon trying it out, I found that I really love it. It gave average results on Day 1, but kept my hair IMPECCABLE on Day 2 as well! My hair is not greasy whatsoever, flyaways have been tamed, and no need for flatiron touch-ups. A true miracle worker and must-have for DIY blowouts.5
This product is really good for blowing out your hair. I am always worried something is going to make my hair greasy, since I have straight hair. This product feels silky and amazing and adds shine to your hair. It protects against fly away. It also does not make your hair look greasy after a few hours! I love this product and would highly recommend , and it smells great!5
