I use to always straighten my hair, and yes, it would get wavy by the end of the day, but it would still look shiny and thick. I straightened it so much so that I didn't know I had curly hair until my senior year of high school. It was then that I started to go naturally curly, giving up silicones and sulfates. I still blew dry my hair though. Had to.
Six years later I am now recently back to using silicones because I realized I need them for thermal protection when Blow drying. I think going without silicones has done more damage to my hair then using them did. Now my hair, when straightened, is so thin and straw like. I don't know what's happened. I know your body changes every 7 years... it could be that. ButIn the last year I started weightlifting and have changed my diet, including getting a lot of protein and healthy fats. My old diet plan was just to eat very little. I will say I haven't gotten my hair professionally cut in several years. I just trim it myself every six weeks.
So what gives? Can anyone recommend a straightening product for baby fine 3a protein craving hair that won't make it greasy, but will keep it straight all day? Goldwell makes a waxy balm that I like, but no product seems to work on my dry ends. I probably just need to get several inches cut off unfortunately.

I'm posting this by mobile right now. I'll try to post a pic later tonight if I can get on my computer.
