  • chi makes a good spray!
    but there's cheaper brands too,
    vo5 is good,but use sparingly, it can get heavy quick.

  • just look for products that specifically say to be used for flat ironing. they have specific ingredients to protect your hair from the heat. I use V05 and I practically drentch my hair in it. It works very well for me.

  • I sell all natural products and use them for myself and the best thing to use on your hair is called Thermal Fusion hair and Scalp Revitalizer along with the daily Self Adjusting Conditioner. I straighten my hair usually about 2-3 times per week and my hair doesnt look dried out at all. if you would like more information you could check out my website and view my online store at If you have any other questions feel free to contact me. Good Luck
