How to Keep down the Greasy Look

Hey girls ~
I've gotten to where I like straightening my hair for a change here and there, but I seem to have to retouch it every day. I read where you all can go without ironing for up to a week, but my hair looks greasy after a day or so. How do you manage???

Also, I'd love to not hit my hair with a straightening iron every day because I'm noticing breakage. Are there any products that are recommended?

    I use an anti-humectant from Aveda. It's not greasy, but it helps with reversion. If you go to an Aveda store, you can ask to test the product in-store.

    I also want to suggest wrapping your hair.


    In the 4a forum, someone posted a you tube link about wrapping one's hair. Her hair type seems similar to your hair type based on your avatar.

    Here's the link:
