CG Friendly Heat Protectant
I've been applying the CG method for about 4 months now and I haven't straightened my hair in probably about 6 months. Since I'm pretty strict on not using silicones and sulfates in any of my hair products what are some good heat protectants that do not have those ingredients?

I mainly only straighten my hair every few months to check on my hair growth or just to switch it up, so I don't straighten it often. I really am in love with my curly hair and love the fact that I'm accepting it more and more.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Jane carter spray gel is marketed as a heat protector and is CG.

Aveda Brilliant Damage Control is one.
Curly Hair Solutions ReMane Straight is another.

I really like Curly Hair Solutions products in general, but in this case, I prefer the Aveda product.

Have you seen l'oreal elnett satin products? I saw some the other day abd they were heat protectants, one was for volume and i looked on the back and THINK it was 'cone free....i would have taken a better look brfore i bought it...anyways there was one for straight hair too

I'm pretty sure that CHI 44 Iron Guard spray protector is cone free. I got it a while ago and works pretty good. You can google the ingredients just to be sure.

what about natural oils? do they work for a protectant?

I have the CHI heat protectant but i hate the way it smells, I used to use Nexxus Protexx before I was CG and it was great! But I'm not sure if it is CG friendly. I think I may give the Aveda Brilliant Damage Control a try though but I also came to find out that the Mixed Chicks brand has a cone free heat protectant so I've narrowed it down to those two.

Thanks again for your suggestions!

Best natural heat protectant is shea butter mixed with grapeseed oil! :D Totally CG friendly ^^

When you cook something in oil, is it protected from the heat?

Aqua_Lily 04-25-2013 04:25 AM

Yes. Grapeseed oil has the highest burning point from a lot of oils. You won't reach this with a flat iron... Also grapeseed oil sits on the hair (doesn't penetrate it) and protects it.

This combination is well known heat protectant and has been used by many people for a long time.

Morgan_Adcock 04-26-2013 12:11 PM

The fact that grapeseed oil does not smoke below a certain temperature does not change the fact that it heats up to that temperature, nor that it transfers heat to your hair, if that's what it's sitting on.
