Is there such a thing?

Giovanni makes a straightening serum called, "straight fast" but it has cones in it. Here's a link to it anyway:

4/b with 4/a kinks at the back of my head.

Keep it kinky, curly, wavy- whatever.
Just keep it natural and keep it you, from head to toe ^_^

I don't know if there is such a thing.
Loose botticelli curls and waves
No silicones/no sulfates since March 2008
Some people use Blended Beauty Straight Pearl as a heat protectant. I personally didn't like it (too thick for my hair, I think).

Avon's Mark brand has a non-cone serum. It's decent.

My favorite is probably Bedhead Control Freak serum. It has water-soluble cones and is not too heavy. I usually use it on wet or damp hair before blowdrying. I don't add more before flat ironing (if I flat iron).

Then there are many products with amodimethicone, if you are not being strict CG. Tresemme Heat Tamer, Nexxus Protexx, Oscar Blandi Jasmine Protein Mist, etc.

THT!
3A curls, fine texture, thin (it's always been that way). A few inches past shoulder length and would like it to grow very long.

Latest routine:
Sulfate-free shampoo: Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo, Elucence, Bedhead Superstar
Conditioner: Jessicurl Too Shea conditioner, DermOrganic Masque, Redken All Soft
Style: DermOrganic Argan Oil Treatment/Serum, Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in, Kerastase Nectar Thermique, Oyin Hair Dew
Thanks!

I'm planning on going CG soon, but I still need to straighten my bangs, so that's why I needed to find a CG friendly heat protectant... the one I currently have has tons of 'cones in it!

You're welcome!
2a/M-C/ii hair. Super long.
AHHHH, life-saver thread!! I'm newly CG, and some mornings will have to blow dry my hair. I'm a UK curly and was considering getting the Naked "Heat Defender" spray, as I know it's silicone free - and I have massive trouble getting CG-friendly products over here!! I live in the sticks, so Boots and Superdrug (or the internet) are pretty much my only options

I was wondering if:

a) Anyone has tried this? Is it any good? Does it actually help reduce damage? (I've tried some in the past, pre-CG, that seemed to do nothing except make my hair stiff/sticky/dry - prob alcohol denat).

b) Anyone could please glance over the list of ingredients for me to check I'm not missing some horrendous gremlin? Naked are normally great for my hair, but I'm only just figuring out CG and still wary of getting it wrong with new products!

Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium PEG-40 maleate/Styrene sulfonate copolymer, PEG-40 Hydrogenated castor oil, Jojoba wax PEG-120 esters, Glycerin, Betaine, Parfum, Panthenol, Dicaprylyl ether, Lauryl alcohol, Tocopheryl acetate, Adansonia digitata (baobab) seed oil, Acacia farnesiana (acacia) flower extract, Cereus grandiflorus (cactus) flower extract, Aloe barbadensis leaf extract, Sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, Citric acid, Potassium sorbate, Sodium benzoate, Benzyl salicylate, Amyl cinnamal, Linalool, Hydroxycitronellal, Eugenol, Geraniol, Citronellol, Benzyl benzoate.

If you can help me I'd be really grateful, curly gurus!
