sedu flat iron

I just bought a Sedu flat iron and am sort of scared to try it. Will my curls come back? Will it do wierd things to my curls? I just want a different look once in a while even though I really like my curly hair (well, not always!) If someone could give me some imput I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Your curls should come back, as long as your hair doesn't get really damaged. Just be careful with that thing!
Hi,

I have a Sedu (although I've stopped using it). Make sure to use a heat protectant (like V05 heat protectant spray) before straightening. I always used it at a temperature UNDER three hundred degrees...although it did take a few passes through my hair to straighten it at that temp. I wonder if it's less damaging to use a slightly higher temp and only need to pass through each hair section once? Anyway, my curls did come back afterwards without any problems.

Maybe do a deep conditioning treatment the day after you straighten it.

Hope that helps-
Sherry
Sherry,

Do you know if that V05 is CG? I'm trying to look for a heat protectant that's somewhat CG and isn't loaded with cones and such.
Hi,

I can post the ingredients when I get home. I am pretty sure that it is CG friendly, though.

Take care,
Sherry
Hi,

I'm sorry, but I must have finished the bottle of Vo5 that I have and not realized it (sign of having too much stuff!)

Can anyone else help out with the ingredients for the Vo5 heat protectant mist?

Thank you-
Sherry
Sherry,

Found it...VO5 Miracle Mist Heat Defense

Water Aqua , Glycerin , Amodimethicone , PEG-12 Dimethicone , PVP , Propylene Glycol , Hydrolyzed Silk , Tocopheryl Acetate , Niacinamide , Biotin , Panthenol , Ascorbic Acid , Polysorbate 20 , Cetrimonium Chloride , Trideceth-12 , Cetylpyridinium Chloride , Benzophenone-4 , Triethanolamine , Disodium EDTA , DMDM Hydantoin , Fragrance Parfum


I straightened my hair this morning and had to use Tresemme and it had Dimethicone it in ..but then I found a bottle of the L'Oreal Studio Line Heated Activated straightening cream..this looks CG to me also.

Water , Cyclopentasiloxane , Propylene Glycol , Hydroxypropyl Guar , Phenoxyethanol , PEG/PPG-17/18 Dimethicone , Behentrimonium Chloride , Aminomethyl Propanol , Trideceth-12 , Polyquaternium-4 , Xylose , Dimethiconol , Limonene , Linalool , Amodimethicone , Carbomer , Methylparaben , Potato Starch Modified , Butylphenyl Methylpropional , Citronellol , Cetrimonium Chloride , Citral , Laureth-23 , Laureth-4 , Hexyl Cinnamal , Amyl Cinnamal , Fragrance
Sorry, airesxtreme, but that L'Oreal straightening cream is definitely not CG. Cyclopentasiloxane is the most hard-to-remove silicone there is. You would need a sulfate shampoo to get that out of your hair.
Crap!

I'm not to privy to which cones are water soluable and which are not. I do need to shampoo then, I cant' do like a ACV or Baking Soda rinse? The VO5 spray look okay? As far as using a sulfate shampoo which I haven't used in I don't even know how long, I can't resort to a no sulfate poo?

How hard is dimethicone to wash out? My fav drugstore deep conditioner has it, which is the Aussie Miracle 3 min.
I use the Sedu flat iron, and I also keep at a lower temperature to avoid any major damage. I put Phytodefrisant and some Framesi Options Way Smooth into my hair before blow drying. I normally use a large round brush to smooth my hair out while blow drying so that I don't need to use the flat iron very much. I normally only have to concentrate on the back where I struggle to get it perfectly straight. Now that I just found Phyto 9, a leave-in, I put a little on my hair to smooth it out after I've dried and flat ironed. It really helps smooth it out and is CG.

Cyclopentasiloxane would require sulfates.

The V05 spray might be okay. The amodimethicone is, as I said, not the worst, and at least there are a couple of other ingredients in front of it on the list. The dimethicone has PEG-12 in front of it so it should be soluble.
Thanks Suzen, I really appreciate your input. Getting my hair colored and cut tomorrow so the shampoo I get from them should remove that god awful thing I put in my hair.
