I am a freshmanin high school and have been straightening my since the 5th grade, it's done a lot of damage to my hair (not to mention I also color it a lot). It's such a hassle straightening it all the time and i've tried blow drying it straight, but the straightening balm sounds interesting, maybe i'll try it. Thanks. :)
