Wonderful Wonder Balm or just Balm?

I'm a subscriber to Elle magazine and the freebie with this months mag was a Percy & Reed hair product.

My hair type is actually pretty thin so I try to keep the products I use to a minimum however I do understand the importance of products such as these as a heat protector. 

Today I thought I'd give it a go, now on the back it claims to give you:

"Moisture, shine, smoothness, definition, softeness, light hold, high humidity protection and manageability"

Which is a lot for one balm to do one would think. It says to add a small amount to towel dried hair from root to tips or to add a tiny amount as a finishing product after styling. As soon as I squeezed it out of the bottle I knew I wouldn't be able to put it anywhere near my roots, it's a pretty thick balm. 

When I was blow drying my hair after, I could feel tell that there was product in my hair so it was a little thicker than I had hoped. 

After blow drying, my hair does have a beautiful scent and it does feel softer. So actually it does live up to some of it's claims. It's a very easy product to use and the packaging is just so cute, will it make it into my daily routine, I'm not sure yet! 

However, I think if I had beautiful thick hair I would be in love with this product, it's just a little too heavy for me. Even as I am writing this my hair is becoming a little weighted down.
