Styling products for flat ironing

luvscurlzluvscurlz Posts: 109Registered Users
I like to straighten my hair sometimes which I do with a blow out then flat iron. I'm currently using victoria secrets shine serum and Phytodefrisant botanical hair relaxing balm which I add to my wet hair right before blow drying it straight.

I want to try other products to see if anything else works better. These products give some control and lots of shine, but it also leaves my hair a little light and wispy and it won't hold curls if I try to curl it with my iron.

Does anyone know of any other good styling products to use when straightening hair. My hair is 3c and I don't want to use anything that might make my hair lose any natural curl when I go back curly.

    I think Cortex Duo Flat Iron Set would be ideal for you. Its very nice hair product. It will lock in moisture and natural oils, keeping your hair healthier, shinier, and more beautiful. So go with it. Good luck. :)

    I use a deep conditioner with a lot of slip. Then I apply MoroccanOil serum from root to tips. I always use tresseme heat protector spray. I am looking into a humidity blocker serum without alcohol
