I know how to straighten my hair but i was wondering what products i can use so that I can keep it straight as many days as possible.*common drug store product plz.*-no biosilk, chi, redken-like stuff, they dont sell them here>>>
~im 1/2 black & 1/2 Japanese = frizzy, curly hair. ive had that from birth up until 6th gr. when a lady offered to Japanese straight perm my hair for free, of course i couldnt say "no" ! i was getting it done for 3 years( about 2-3x per year) until i came to my senses and decided to let my curly roots grow out-that took 2 yrs- on 8/24/2009 i finally cut my hair. Now its short and curly. "loving it" ~:love4:

    ic Straightening Serum is pretty good. You put it on before you flat iron and it keeps your hair straight and frizz free.

    Hmm, I can't help you directly BUT I can help you indirectly.
    Okay, first, list the ingredients in like the CHI and Biosilk straightening products. Then, compare those ingredients to the products you see in the store. Finally, buy whatever closely matches the CHI and Biosilk ingredients.
    You can also look up whatever is in the store and go online and find ratings on these products to determine what's best.

    It's my hair and if people don't approve they should take it up with the creator, not the creation. : )

    Can you buy Avon products online at www.avon.com?

    I sometimes use an Avon product called Mark Salon Straight No-iron Smoothing Fluid with Invigorating Orange. You can use this after you blow-dry or flat-iron your hair, and it really keeps it straight and less-frizzy.

    There is also a product called Mark Salon Straight Anti-Frizz Serum With Invigorating Orange.

    However, I always use John Frieda Frizz-Ease Straight Answer Straightening Spray before I blow-dry my hair, and it seems to make it silkier.

    All of these products have no silicones, so they are good for CGs.

    Are you willing to buy the CHI or Biosilk via the internet? I love that stuff. Makes my hair look salon styled.

    A product to make tranistioning EASIER!:cheers:
    Scissors. Think of it like this, your mixing dirty clothes with clean clothes, you can use all the perfum you want (hair product) but the dirty clothes (permed hair) will never be clean, will eventually get old, raggedy, and eventually start shredding/breaking(natural&permed hair). Don't waste your time. Transitioning for most is a :boxing: fight that relaxed hair will win!
