I’m always a little skeptical about using hair product. They are frequently expensive and produce really wishy washy results, in my experience.
Instead, I hope for skipping the product entirely and winging it on my own. Punishing my hair with a flat iron is a major part of my routine because I have very voluminous, somewhat course, thick hair with a strong natural wave.
I think I may be rethinking the ‘no product’ stance though, after trying the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Formula Serum. It smells fantastic, goes on wet hair so there is no greasiness issue (although putting it on as a smoother is great, too!), and I really felt that it helped protect my hair from the punishing it takes with my iron.
For what it’s worth, I also was doing a good amount of swimming and sunning with this product in my hair in a very hot and humid period of the summer, and I have to tell you: luscious locks! When I did straighten my hair, it looked great and maintained it’s smoothness instead of getting super fluffy like it usually does. When I left it in natural waves, I felt that the serum gave it a little something extra in the way of protection. I plan to continue using it all summer – can’t wait to see how much it helps with fall and winter static!

Ok so before blowdrying? After blowdrying before flat-iron? I MUST know!
