When temperatures rise, most of us become lazier. Luckily for our locks, amika TM'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.
The name amika is derived from Latin and means “girlfriend” or “friend” in a number of the Romance languages. Infusing the latest technology with a creative edge, amika tools and hair care are born to perform and live to impress and truly live up to their name as hair’s best friend.
Apply balm to damp hair. Separate into sections, and blow-dry one by one. To up the straightness factor, finish by flat-ironing.
