Battling the frizz...

Jersey8304Jersey8304 Posts: 6Registered Users
I decided to flat-iron my hair for the first time in ages over the weekend. I bought a GVP iron (love it) and I used Silk Elements Megasilk Heat Protection Spray (also love it), and my hair looks fantastic.

However, I'm already starting to lose a battle with stray strands and frizziness. I made the mistake of putting a little bit of Citre Shine Anti-Frizz serum on my hair, and now it looks limp and greasy.

I know I've followed all the rules until I used the Citre Shine (ionic dryer, not-cheap iron on a low setting, heat protection, wrapping it at night), so I need some more advice on what to put on my hair to keep the flyaway ends down. I know that some people have been ok with no products after flat ironing, but I definitely need something for daily use. Help!

Thanks in advance - the NC boards haven't led me wrong yet!

    When I flat-iron my hair, I generally don't use any products other than a thermal heat protection spray.

    But, once in a while I have tried Agadir Argan Oil Spray Treatment or Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Glossing Spray (both of these are not CG).

    I've also used Avon's mark Salon Straight No-Iron Smoothing Fluid (this is CG - contains no cones).

    None of these products are greasy on me - but I use them sparingly. They are good for eliminating frizz.

    Good Luck!!

    I've never known a cone free product to really battle the frizz when straightening your hair. Once in a while won't kill you. Sabino moisture block is the best around.

    Yes, I've used Sabino, too, and it's really good, especially during the summer humid months.
