Review: Phyto botanical hair relaxing balm

Where to begin with this product? It has me stumped. I read a few reviews on the Phyto botanical hair relaxing balm and thought "that's just what I need". Get it home, try it for the first time, meh. I normally let my hair air dry but that time I needed to blow dry and style right away. It felt as if I had a lot of product in my hair even though I had only used a nickel to quarter sized amount. Try #2 - I was able to let my hair air dry like normal. It felt "crispy" on the ends like I had put mousse in it. Keep in mind, both times my hair did not feel or look "relaxed" as it says on the tube. Try #3 - I added a small amount of leave-in conditioner. Thought this would surely take care of the "crispy" feel it had before. I let it air dry as normal. Still meh about the results. Ok, so by now I've used this product a handful of times, I'd say maybe 5. While it does tame down some of my frizz (my hair is naturally wavy/frizzy) I was hoping for more of a WOW factor and more relaxing. I still had to flat iron my hair if I wanted it really straight. It did look good enough to go out without any heat products though after brushing through with my fingers. Just not the results I'd expect with the name and the $26 (3.3fl oz) price tag! I will continue to use it but will not re-purchase. xo~C
