I mentioned in my June Birchbox unboxing that if any products caught my eye, you may see a post sometime in the near future... I wasn't expecting it to be about this.
On first impressions and packaging, it's not something that particularly draws you in. But, it's the one product from the box i'm regularly slipping into my beauty routine, so it must be doing something right. My hair care routine generally includes shampoo, conditioner and heat protection. I'm pretty lazy when it comes to my hair. I just want it washed, dried and styled as quick as poss, so I rarely use masks and fancy products. It's something I know I need to do though, since I always lust after girls with super shiny, glossy hair... and then wonder why my hair isn't like that! Anyone else?

Anyway from reading up on it, it claims to tame and smooth frizzy, unruly hair. Since i've got super thick hair (thanks to my mum for making me have it cut loads when I was young), this is just what I want/need!

I tried it out and was fairly impressed with how my hair looked. However, I didn't notice the full difference it made until I didn't use it the next time I washed my hair. So much more frizz, so many more flyaways and a lot less shiny. I also love that it doesn't make my hair feel like it's got product in or make it look greasy, which so many similar hair care products do. It claims to protect against heat damage, which is so hard to test, so I still use my normal heat protectant too, just in case. 

Overall, the Number 4 Jour d'automne Smoothing Balm (what a mouthful), receives a huge tick from me!
