Question Creme of nature argan oil gloss and shine vs. Fantasia ic heat serum

I have not straightened my hair in a while, but I am planning on doing so in the near future. Has anyone used these products (of course as a heat protectant).

1) are they greasy, sticky, etc?
2) How did you use it? To blowdry and/or flat iron?
3) How did your hair come out?

Thanx

I used the Creme of Nature Argan one on my daughter's 4b hair a few times to blow dry and then flat iron so I could give her hair a good trim. The serum did not seem greasy to me. I sectioned her clean damp hair in about 8 sections and put a dime sized amount on each section before blow drying. The product helped blow her hair straighter than usual and after I flat ironed it her hair had excellent sheen and a lot of body. The style lasts a few days; some nights I rolled it up with satin covered sponge rollers and on other occassions I pin-curled it.

The only problem is that with the slightest bit of sweating (like during recess or p.e.) or exposure to steam in the shower or bath she experienced a bit of frizz (or reversion as I like to call it) as with any product on natural hair.

Hope this helps......

This helped alot. When looking at the ingredients on both products, Im leaning towards Creme of nature.
