therapy-m SuperStraight Straightening Balm claims to do a lot. Not only will it help you straighten and smooth your hair, but it will give your hair more volume, make it shinier and softer. AND you can use it even if you don’t want straight hair because it also minimizes frizz in curly hair. So in theory the SuperStraight Straightening Balm should help you make your hair perfectly straight or perfectly curly. No waves, no fly aways, depending on what you want.
On top of all of that, therapy-m SuperStraight Straightening Balm claims to make your hair healthier. It is made with rice protein, which it says gives added moisture and shine to your hair, whether it is brittle, damaged, or overdone with chemicals. So, according to therapy-g, not only will your hair look better from this product, but it will actually be better too. So…does it actually work?

Side Effects of SuperStraight Straightening Balm
There were not any side effects reported for therapy-m SuperStraight Straightening Balm, either in the product’s profile or in user reviews. So rest easy on that.
Effectiveness of SuperStraight Straightening Balm
There are reviews going both ways for SuperStraight Straightening Balm. One user gives a positive review, saying that the balm worked when she tried to straighten her hair and that she’d gladly buy it again. Another user said that the balm did not work on her hair at all, and that she’d never recommend it to anyone. The only sure bit of information we can get from these reviews is that the product seems to be hit or miss.
Since this product is chemical free, you don’t have much to lose by trying it…besides your money. It’s a little pricey for not being completely risk free. If you’re one who likes to try new products and could possibly use SuperStraight Straightening Balm for both of its uses – to straighten hair and tame fly aways for curly styles – then perhaps the risk of it not working is worth it to you. Otherwise, though, you might want to try something with more uniform user reviews.
