Toni & Guy No Kinks Smoothing Balm


This is a balm which you put into your hair for sleeker, straighter, less fizzy looks. There are anti-humidity agents in it to hep reduce frizz and it helps seal cuticles in an instant. It gives your hair a glossy look and it looks better as the split ends aren’t as visible. It also helps detangle your hair, leaving it look smoother and healthier.


This product can be used on wet or dry hair. You put a small blob into your hand and rub it through your hair from root to tip. Make sure you put extra on the tips of your hair as this is where the most split ends are and the hair will be most damaged here. Then once you have rubbed the balm onto your hair and carefully comb through adding more as needed. With wet hair the salon tip is to blow dray using a brush directing the flow down the hairshaft after you have added the balm. When your hair is dry you put a small amount as and when needed onto the damaged hair.

The balm itself has a slight smell to it but it’s a fresh smell and you don’t smell it once you have put it onto your hair. I can not stress enough to put small amounts onto your hair at any one time as it can make your hair get greasy if too much is used. I tend to sometimes just put it onto the ends of my hair, Its consistency is slightly thicker than hair gel and a small amount can easily be spread about your hair using a comb. My hair is long (longer than shoulder length) and at any one time I would not use any more than 3 or 4 small blobs and my hair is in very bad condition.


The packaging is very simple as the name tends to sell the product on their reputation alone. It is in a foil container which you squeeze to get the product out. There is a small cap which is just the right size to squeeze out a small blob. There is Toni & Guy written on the front in red block capital, with any other writing in red except for what the product does and this is in silver writing. The rest of the packaging is pure white. On the back there is directions and ingredients which is written in black so it stands out and is easy to read.

You can buy the sachets in various sizes 50ml which costs 1.59 pounds in boots and there is a larger size of 200ml costs 6.99 pounds. The 50ml size last me roughly 2 months but I don’t use it every day or every time I wash my hair. The only problem I have with the packaging is that if you leave it in a drawer that has anything remotely sharp it pierces the foil and the packaging busts. This wastes the product as it is constantly leaking out and making a mess of everywhere.

To be honest I don’t have a clue about any of the ingredients and if there is anything you should avoid, but you may find this useful.


Personally I think this product is great and it has helped my hair a lot. My hair is in very bad condition, split ends and its impossible to comb when wet and this product helps me get the brush through with minimal additional damage to my hair. I usually use it when my hair is wet and once it dries you wouldn’t notice it was in your hair at all. When I have used the balm with dray hair it makes my hair greasy and feel like its dirty. I only use it on the tips of my hair when my hair is dry. I stress again do not use a lot in your hair at once. Less is more as the saying goes and it will make your hair look better. The product makes my hair look in better condition and it is a lot more manageable. It could help straighten out hair, as mine is poker straight naturally I don’t know how effect this is. You get a nice shine added to your hair as well which gives you a sleeker look.
