I had asked this exact same thing and got no replies. I was going to try it, but now trying straightening with Crisco is higher on my list. I'm sure I'll still get around to trying this though since I love the Smoothie so much.

CG didn't work for me. Oils don't work for me. Trying hard to learn how to love my hair. Read my blog.

Because tons of people use it as a leave in. I tried it yesterday and loved it so want to see how it straightens.

Oh great.
Well, I answered my own question. I saw in the tiniest writing ever on the back of the Smoothie that it says "Caution: not for use with direct heat." Of course, only after I blew-dry with it. My hair just cannot catch a break!!
