Oh, Balmain, how I love thee! Let me count the ways!
You’re not Sticky, Stinky, OR Smelly. You don’t leave my curls Crunchy, Crispy, Greasy, or Oily. And, you don’t make my curls Dry or Frizzy!
If you were a man, and I was single, I’d MARRY you!
I met Balmain on a Norwegian vacation spring ’17.
Icelandair had lost my suitcase full of curly girl products somewhere between Seattle, the Arctic, Iceland, and Norway, and I had to go out shopping for replacements in the land of straight-haired, blonde, super tall and fit Viking Women.
straight, blonde-haired Viking woman nice salesperson was thrilled to see a curly haired human in real life, and she happily led me to their section for curly haired people. It consisted of 3 products: Balmain Curl Cream, Sachajuan Styling Cream (for straight and curly), and a smoother.
I bought them all!
I fell in mad love with Balmain Curl Cream and Sachajuan Style Cream.
On returning back to the US, I realized my one tube of Balmain was almost empty. Ahhh!!!! I looked on Amazon. No luck. I looked at all the US online shops. No luck. I wrote Balmain and they gave me the name of their US division. I ordered 3 tubes from them at about $40 / tube plus shipping. Since then, I found it online at an English website called Beauty Expert, and they will often sell it at $31/ tube and free shipping with a minimum order. I usually buy everything they have.
Balmain is the perfect lover–the kind that makes you believe in yourself and your curls. It is described thusly:
Flexible, natural curls that last all day!
Reveal the charm of every curl with the new Balmain Curl Cream, inspired by the expertise of the Balmain Hair backstage stylist team. The Curl Cream is invigorated with the signature Balmain Hair Couture fragrance. The lightweight formula activates and defines curls resulting in soft, bouncy and well-shaped waves. The signature Balmain Argan Elixir and Silk Proteins shield the hair against heat styling and protect strands from harmful UV rays. The Curl Cream helps fight frizz without flattening texture and defines spirals without making them crunchy. It hydrates the hair resulting in flexible, natural curls that last all day.
We lived happily ever after…as long as I can find replacement Balmain!
