I am really curious about this, too. Like Frizzywaves, I've been straightening lately because the only thing that works well for me that isn't "bad" for my hair is Ouidad CC. I get great waves/ curls with the CC, but it give me the wet look until about noon. I HATE THAT. I hate that my hair looks untouchable. So I straighten. But I live in Savannah, haven of humidity, and I'm travelling to Orlando this week. My other big pet peeve is using more than one styler (i.e. multiple gels). I don't mind using two different types of products. A cream and a gel, and gel and a pomade, or a gel and a spray might be all right. I just hate having all that extra stuff.
