I use Nexxus and also Redkin heat protectors. I think they really help.

I don't use one....that's one thing I dont need because I never use curling irons or flat irons..at least not anymore.

For under the dryer just setting lotion or moose if this would count as protectant.

I just started this summer learning how to flat iron my hair. I have never had it done before and this summer I felt my hair is long enough, so I invested in a flat iron and heat protectant. I did a lot of research and reviews reading before buying my Sedu flat iron and my protectant Chi Silk Infusion. I refused to go another summer with frizzed out hair. (DAMN THE HUMIDITY I SAY!) :rolleyes:

To me they work great together! I haven't tried any other brands so I cannot compare.

The smell is very nice. It is kind of perfume/cologne-y but not over powering. I read a lot of reviews about the smell that made me weary but I noticed that I don't really smell it after I have applied it.

I put about a dime size amount in my palm, rub hands toghether and apply all around my hair with careful attention to the ends. Then flat iron.

It adds a great sheen to your hair and keeps it straight! :D

I use the silk elements heat protectant spray..uhm its ok I guess I hope it works. I don't use heat that much tho either unless I'm stretching and its the roots only.

I barely ever use heat. If I do, I use the Fantasia IC Straightening Serum (pink bottle). I love it.

Hair oil, might not help... ive heard a lot of ladies say that it is realyl adding to the damage of your hair, as in essence, heat and oil = frying

Im not sure, but I think I have decided that it is too... wet! Its just annoying, becaue the flat irons boil the water in the protectant, and it burns!

I recently purchased Elasta QP Silk something something LOL (sorry, I dont have it handy) anywho.. used it to blow dry my daughters hair and she loved it! It made her hair feel extra soft/light to the touch. I used it on my hair as well, but the jury's still out LOL It may like my daughters hair better than mine(which is cool too) :O)

Well, the liquid ones aren't for using the flat iron. They're for drying with a blowdryer.

Creme/Oil and Silicone protectors are for directly flat ironing the hair.
Liquid protectors are for blowdrying, not direct heat contact.

I think my next one is a mizanni 1. It was used on my hair in the salong the other day, ad it wasnt liquid so no burning from hot water

I mean, some white people actually use the spray ones lightly, let it airdry and flat iron their hair. I don't think it works for thicker, textured hair types. I sometimes need a creme press but liquid ones work fine if I let my hair fully airdry (which takes 2 days, lol)

I know, I am gong to start to blow dry it with a round brush, then flat iron it, and see if that helps.

Plus if I blowdry with a round brush I dont have to flat iron as much... which could be good for my hair, as I wont have to use the flat iron for as long as usual.

I just bought some Cantu heat protectant, so I'm going to see how that works. They have a good leave-in, hopefully the heat protectant is pretty good too.

Gurl, Smooth N Shine heat protectant/straightener polish is just what your lookin for, it's soo light all you need is a dime sized amount and it leaves your hair soft, silky, and best of all protected. Dog they should pay me to be their spokesperson lol:p, I sound like a commerical lol, but seriously it's great you should try it

Yes, I tried biosilk, but I like Chi Silk Infusion a whole lot better. It's kinda pricey, but Sally's has a generic brand for cheap. The actually have a generic brand for biosilk and Paul Mitchell Super Skinney too!!

I use it now as a daily leave in. It's pretty good for strengthening. I have a review on my blog as well if you want more detail.

I'll be doing a review in the near future about straightening hair with Biosilk. I hear it works wonders!

I use silk elements and sally GVP chi silk infusion. I gave one of the bottles os silk elements to my mother and she loves it. her hair definetely responds well to it. I personally like both. Silk elements is lighter. The GVP is kinda thick a little and I mean a little goes a loooooooooooooong way.

Aphogee Keratin and green Tea reconstructerizer

Hopefully I read it properly but it said something about heat protector. I want to invest in the CHI silk fusion stuff I hear it's good for heat styling.

Chi Silk Infusion, Chi Iron Guard, Aphogee Green Tea, or Redken smooth down. I was reading that the Aphogee provitamin leave in says to use it before heat styling as well. I wonder....

I'm going to email the Aphogee man and ask him. He said tro use the provitamin leave in when you need moisture and the green tea when you need protein. But the bottle says to use it for heat styling. I'm confused. I'll add it to the list of things I email him about, and then I'll tell you all about it. ;)

Last time I used a combination of extra virgin grape seed oil and proclaim color & heat protection because it was my first time using grape seed and I was skeptical about using it all alone.

My BF kindly bought me the new heat protectant serum from Kerastase, Fibre Architect. It's wonderful, my hair is very silky and shiny when I use it. It's expensive though, so as good as it is I don't think I could buy it again cause I tend not to straighten my whole length regularly.

Now that I have used the tressemme heat tamer a few more times I dont know if I like it. I am not sure but it seems watery to me. I can see using it to blow dry but i dont think it would be too good for flat ironing. Anyone else care to chime in here?
