Default Battling the frizz...

I decided to flat-iron my hair for the first time in ages over the weekend. I bought a GVP iron (love it) and I used Silk Elements Megasilk Heat Protection Spray (also love it), and my hair looks fantastic.

However, I'm already starting to lose a battle with stray strands and frizziness. I made the mistake of putting a little bit of Citre Shine Anti-Frizz serum on my hair, and now it looks limp and greasy.

I know I've followed all the rules until I used the Citre Shine (ionic dryer, not-cheap iron on a low setting, heat protection, wrapping it at night), so I need some more advice on what to put on my hair to keep the flyaway ends down. I know that some people have been ok with no products after flat ironing, but I definitely need something for daily use. Help!

Thanks in advance - the NC boards haven't led me wrong yet!

When I flat-iron my hair, I generally don't use any products other than a thermal heat protection spray.

But, once in a while I have tried Agadir Argan Oil Spray Treatment or Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Glossing Spray (both of these are not CG).

I've also used Avon's mark Salon Straight No-Iron Smoothing Fluid (this is CG - contains no cones).

None of these products are greasy on me - but I use them sparingly. They are good for eliminating frizz.

Good Luck!!

Thanks, anniemae! I'll definitely check out the Salon Straight from mark...I like that there's no 'cones in it!

I've never known a cone free product to really battle the frizz when straightening your hair. Once in a while won't kill you. Sabino moisture block is the best around.

Yes, I've used Sabino, too, and it's really good, especially during the summer humid months.
