This is a lightweight Balm that gives your hair a light hold too. It's mainly to protect your hair from the heat from blow drying your hair. It's reasonable priced and a little goes a long way. I just wish it had a little more gold to it so that I wouldn't have to use additional products. Overall I do notice that my hair feels and looks healthier when using this along with my blow dryer so it does a good job in protecting my hair.
