    Try Sabino Moisture Block. Its good for fighting humidity and heat damage. (You can read more about it here:

    Even though a hot comb will get it as straight as possible, I recommend that you use a flat iron instead. Get a ceramic flat iron because they are less damaging and your hair will look great.

    I definitely agree with the earlier post...try the Sabino, a good blow dryer and a good flat iron. I would even suggest a decent thermal protectant...I use Nexxus Memory Sleek...I think you can get some much better results.

    You can always order a sample for free through the Sabino website if you're unsure (the bigger product is kinda expensive I found)- I got two of them, with absolutely no cost to me to try.
    Wurly, fine, thin, moderately to heavily porous. Mod CG.

    Same here. They sent me 2 samples after I sent them an e-mail.

    I have an FHI Platform flat iron that works great.
