I've been applying the CG method for about 4 months now and I haven't straightened my hair in probably about 6 months. Since I'm pretty strict on not using silicones and sulfates in any of my hair products what are some good heat protectants that do not have those ingredients?

I mainly only straighten my hair every few months to check on my hair growth or just to switch it up, so I don't straighten it often. I really am in love with my curly hair and love the fact that I'm accepting it more and more.

Any suggestions are appreciated!
Am waiting for the answer as well it seems that all heat protectant have silicone in them
Jane carter spray gel is marketed as a heat protector and is CG.
2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Salt & Pepper
Cleanse: CJ Daily Fix, JC Cleansing Cream, TJ Tea Tree Condish
Condish: JC Too Shea, CJ Curl Rehab (both as RO & LI)
Stylers: UFD CM, CJ PP, JC Spiralicious, Darcy's Cream Gel & Cocoa bean whip
Aveda Brilliant Damage Control is one.
Curly Hair Solutions ReMane Straight is another.

I really like Curly Hair Solutions products in general, but in this case, I prefer the Aveda product.

Have you seen l'oreal elnett satin products? I saw some the other day abd they were heat protectants, one was for volume and i looked on the back and THINK it was 'cone free....i would have taken a better look brfore i bought it...anyways there was one for straight hair too
Just starting CG (04/18/13)
2C/3A hair, medium texture, normal porosity (I think!)
Trying out: Suave Naturals wild strawberry (co-wash) Garnier Fructis Pure and Clean fortifying conditioner, Redken crystal curls 6, Live Clean Argan Oil Treatment, Pantene curl shaping gel
Thinking of trying: Live Clean Argan oil conditioner or Live Clean Bali Oil conditioner....who recommends them?
I'm pretty sure that CHI 44 Iron Guard spray protector is cone free. I got it a while ago and works pretty good. You can google the ingredients just to be sure.
what about natural oils? do they work for a protectant?
I have the CHI heat protectant but i hate the way it smells, I used to use Nexxus Protexx before I was CG and it was great! But I'm not sure if it is CG friendly. I think I may give the Aveda Brilliant Damage Control a try though but I also came to find out that the Mixed Chicks brand has a cone free heat protectant so I've narrowed it down to those two.

Thanks again for your suggestions!
Best natural heat protectant is shea butter mixed with grapeseed oil! Totally CG friendly ^^

No.

When you cook something in oil, is it protected from the heat?

Yes. Grapeseed oil has the highest burning point from a lot of oils. You won't reach this with a flat iron... Also grapeseed oil sits on the hair (doesn't penetrate it) and protects it.

This combination is well known heat protectant and has been used by many people for a long time.

The fact that grapeseed oil does not smoke below a certain temperature does not change the fact that it heats up to that temperature, nor that it transfers heat to your hair, if that's what it's sitting on.
