What's your go to anti-humectant?

I haven't worn my hair straight in months now (yay curls) but when I do feel like straightening it, I don't really have a cg friendly anti-humectant (is there such a thing anyway?) to put on my hair when its dry and done being straightened to keep the straightness locked in. What are people's faves for good ones? Right now I have all things loaded with cones like moroccan oil and sebastian trilliant shine spray - im not even sure if these are antihumectants or just to add shine
can go between 2b-3b (makes styling full of suspense)

    I'm bumping this because it's a great question and nobody answered yet. C'mon people- give us some suggestions. :toothy2:
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    I have to say that Aveda used to make a really good anti humecant - I liked both the humectant and anti... They were great. I don't use them too much more now because I don't straighten 1/2 as much. I don't like any of the Aveda curly line though - just those 2 products.
    From time to time I use a little shea butter when I straighten, it doesn't leave my hair greasy and it seems to add some sheen and it doesn't curl up... I also use some of the wax pomades after I straighten - they also help with some shine and keep it straight...
    Tara - have a curly day!!!
