Default need serum for straight iron

I need a serum that I can use before I flat iron and afterward for frizzies.

I'm not sure if a heat protecting serum exists without silicones. I think it's the cones that actually protect the hair from heat. I know Redken Heat Glide is loaded with them and I'm pretty sure the MOP one is too.

I also have to agree with this. Fantastic product! I use this to help straighten my hair. Redken has a great smoothing line.

If you are CG, you wouldn't be heat-straightening, right?

Not being snarky, just sayin'. Like the other posters noted, it's the 'cones that protect your hair from the heat. They are also what allow your hair to stay smooth, after you heat-straighten it. So it isn't *really* possible without 'cones. Your best bet is to find one with the water-soluble 'cones that ARE okay if you're doing CG, but keep in mind these won't work as well.

If you're heat-straightening you're breaking the CG rules anyway so I wouldn't sweat it. Just use the 'cones and protect your hair.
Modified CG. You'll pry my 'cones from my cold dead fingers! Mixed waves, coarse, below shoulder length, dark brown. I hate my hair but I'm trying to learn to accept it.

Gels: LA Looks Wet Look Styling Gel, Garnier Fructis Wet Shine Gel. Condish: Alberto V05 Free Me Fresia, Tresemme' Flawless Curls, LVPNG, Neutrogena Triple Moisture. Shampoo: Tresemme' Flawless Curls. Silicone Serum: Whatever is on sale, but I don't leave home without it.
