    :blob:Funny.....Woody, I just received mine but haven't yet tried it. It was in Allure magazine and is getting WONDERFUL reviews....have you seen them yet??? I guess a bunch of chemists formulated it & the great thing is there are no cones.

    I will be trying mine very soon and let you know how it goes.

    I'll stick w/ my jojoba oil and gel for straightening.

    Do you mind if I ask how you use jojoba oil and gel for straightening? Do you use a blowdryer or flat iron? Once I tried to use some jojoba oil on dry hair before flat ironing (like I use serums). Yikes, it didn't work well at all. I think the oil got too hot. It actually smelled like cooking oil in my bathroom! It was pretty scary but I don't think I hurt my hair too badly.

    Also I will be trying the Living Proof No Frizz product soon. Will report back. :)
    3A curls, fine texture, thin (it's always been that way). A few inches past shoulder length and would like it to grow very long.

    Sure....l put the jojoba oil on my wet hair after leave-in conditioner and then my gel....blow dry and it comes out nice and straight w/ no frizz.

    For me it is the only product that holds up to the fog and humidity of the bay area. I've been using it every day for about 3 months. I used silicon based products before and they were good but I had a lot of buildup which I don't get with living proof.

    Ok I tried my sample for the first time. It's the best blow dry product I've ever used!! Not even kidding. My hair is super soft, shiny and totally frizz-free. I am impressed but don't want to jinx it. Even my husband said it looks really good and he's worried now because we "have to keep buying it now" and he thinks it's too expensive. LOL!

    I will update in a few days on how I am feeling and if the results are keeping up.

    I have been reading about this stuff and really curious about how it works. I finally bought some today at Sephora and I love it! My hair is soft but plenty of hold. And my hands didn't feel slimy after I applied it!

    I hope it continues to work so well.

    I finally decided to use the Living Proof that I got a month ago. So far so good...........that being said I'm going to the Dominican in 3 weeks and will definately want to see how it responds to the humidity:lol:
