  • chi silk infusion______ AHHHHHHHHHHHHMAZING! you can find it at target. i have never had my hair so smooth and straight on my own. you know how when your stylist always gets it straighter and smooother than you can? this has the same effect.

  • Dove has this heat spray you put on towel dried hair before you blow dry and straighten. Its a red bottle and costs about $4 and I really love it and it keep the fly-aways down and my hair soft

  • The Maxi-glide electric straightener. It is amazing. Costs about $80. Uses steam to straighten your hair. It takes my daughter's kinky curls to pin straight very quickly. We've had it two years and it hasn't damaged her hair. It isn't a chemical...but it works.

  • I don't use anything. Just extra conditioner, and I leave it in for about three or four mins. It helps with the dryness for me. Everything else makes my hair look greasy and gross!!! =]

  • I use Alberto VO5 Detangle & Shine Restoring Daily Leave-in Conditioner. It smells good, sprays very fine mist. Everything else I have tried weighs my hair down and looks oily. This stuff does not. It's only $4 at Walgreens.

  • I use infusium for tangles, Paul Mitchell super skinny serum and CHI 44 iron guard for thermal protection. My straightener is not fancy or expensive, I clean it with some cheap iron cleaner. My hair is awesome! I think it would all depend on your hair type, mine is thick and a little wavy with fly-aways, so the skinny serum is a life saver.

  • I have thick coarse hair. After washing, rinsing conditioning I use Silk spray for heat treated hair. I holds the body of my hair. I then do the flat iron press with ultra press oil. It last until my next hair wash.
