Heat protectant?

Do you use a non-silicone heat protectant? Recommendations welcome!
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....

    SheaMoisture has a nonsilicone heat protectant in the Yucca and Plantain line. I found it too heavy for my fine hair, though.

    My hair stylist recommends using the Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode as a heat protectant on dry hair (like if you're going to use heat tools to touch up your hair after it's dry).
    Low poo: Intelligent Nutrients (IN) Harmonic; Oribe Cleansing Creme
    RO: IN Harmonic
    LI: CJ Beauticurls; Jessicurl (JC) Gelebration Spray
    DC: JC Deep Conditioning Treatment; Weleda Rosemary Conditioning Oil
    Stylers: JC Confident Coils; IN Volumizing Spray; IN Perfect Hold Hairspray; John Masters Sea Mist; Bumble Bb. Gel; Kenra Firm-Hold Gel; Sevi Blue Yarrow Sea Salt Spray
    Low-porosity 2a/b baby-fine hair

    Thanks Therese1 :hello2: I haven't liked any of the Shea Moisture products for the same reason you mention. Too heavy. I think I'll just try to avoid using my hair dryer with diffuser for too long or aimed at any one spot.

    I just bought a low poo that has that coca- betaine (whatever) that is supposed to remove silicones but is sulfate free so maybe I'll give in once in a while and use a Tresseme heat tamer and hope the low poo removes the silicones. Groan :) - oh well, this should be my biggest problem in life!

    I'm curious about Living Proof Restore Instant Protection, which is also silicone-free. My hair takes too long to air dry before work, so I'm reliant on my diffuser.
    Lo Poo: MOP Hydrating Shampoo
    Leave-Ins: CJ Beauticurls, Briogeo Rosarco Spray
    Rinse-Outs: Intelligent Nutrients Harmonic Conditioner, Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine
    Stylers: L'Oreal Out of Bed Texturizer, Bumble & Bumble Bb. Gel, Yarok Hair Whip, Davines Volu Spray
    Treatments: ACV rinse, CJ Curl Rehab, caffeine solution spray

    2C-3A, fine, low-medium porosity, low-medium density, sensitive scalp, protein-sensitive

    Hey La_Ninon, I'll be interested to hear how this works. I tried one of the Living Proof products a while back and it worked great - once! After that it dried out my hair something fierce. It was worse for me than using silicones and washing with a sulfate. If you get it, let us know what you think.
