My vote is for either Aphogee green tea spray or CHI silk infusion. (Although I'm not 100% certain the CHI Silk Infuision is a heat protectant).

I always use oil, or my ORS Moisturizing Olive Oil Lotion, which actually is a heat protectant believe it or not lol. Can't say that it is the best, as I don't really have anything to compare it to.

My vote is CHI 44 Iron guard thermal protection spray but Motions heat seeker protecting spray is relatively inexpensive and just as effect.

Well ive been using Organic Root Stimulator, Olive Oil, Heat Protection Serum this year. I dont flat iron my hair that often but i do use the hair dryer more frequently than the flat iron. But when i do use the serum before using the heat appliances i can tell the difference, my hair doesnt feel frazzled and my hair looks shiny. :) its a lot better than any sprays or the IC serum that i used to use.

I love serums because they last a long time as a little goes quite a way!!!!!!! :) My two cents lol

I heard it was discontinued and a new formulation has replaced it that doesn't work as well. Is this true sweets?

Yes,It's been replaced with a new version called Lok N Blok. I have yet to try that one. The old version is kinda thick and the new is thinner according to the owner. My only problem with the old version is learning how much to use. I used half a bottle trying to get the right combonation! But otherwise it's a great product. You can find the old version online for cheap on ebay.

I was stalking fotki's and youtube today and seen some beautiful results of ladies using the sabino moisture block. I hope the new formula gives just as good of results b/c I will def try in a couple months. . . or try to find the old formula on ebay.

Anybody use Aphogee Keratin Green Tea Reconstructurizer?

leentora

I do Naomi, I use it with my rollerset plus a little CHI Silk Infusion.

Thanks Leen, does it work well? How about flat ironing, have you used it for that?

(You should try rollersetting without heat!:p)

leentora
05-22-2010, 02:26 PM
It does it makes it comes out nice and smooth and sleek. I only started doing this since Dec 09/Jan 10 and I very much like the results.

I have rollerset without heat missy I airdry when the sun grace this side of the world. I have to go uder my hooded dryer in the winter as my hair is very very thick and it will take days not hours to dry.

It is good stuff!

But I do love the Aphogee Keratin Green Tea Reconstructurizer. I got one of our family friend hooked on it, she washed her here at my house and I used it on her air and then blow dry it and the results were as if she had gotten a flat iron.

naomimaxine927
05-22-2010, 02:38 PM
Lol, thanks Leen. Think I will get that when I get a new flat iron. I don't use heat otherwise.

I was also looking at Proclaim Glossing Polish Heat Protectant. Another one I'm interested in is Silk Elements Megasilk Olive Heat Protection Spray.

Although I might just rock with the Aphogee, as it has multi purposes.

leentora
05-22-2010, 02:55 PM
I have never flat iron with it to be honest, I have only used it when I rollerset and then dry under my dryer so I am not too sure of it with flat ironing, I m sur eit is good though as the resultsform the blow drying on my friends hair was awesome.

I have the Silk Element Heat protectant NOT the Olive oil one the regualr stuff. Mmm will put it to good use when I get my flat iron :D

Never use proclaim before. I am sure you won't be disappointed with the Aphogee though as long as you use heat with it. Either flat iron,blow dry or acctivate it like I do by using indirect heat (hooded dryer).

Or just as a good leave in either way it makes the hair feels and looks good.

naomimaxine927
05-22-2010, 02:58 PM
Yeah that's why I going to go with the Aphogee, since I can use it as a heat protectant, or a leave in.

I'd like to try the Sabino Moisture Block one of these days when I finally decide to flat iron my hair (it's been almost a year since I last flat ironed it)!

You should definitely try it. It really helps the keep the hair from reverting. But, do not follow the directions and use the flat iron on 450 or whatever temp they say to use. Mr. Sabino told me that it seals onto you're hair at that temp, but that's too much heat IMO.

I used the Tresemme for the first time this week and I really liked. It still made my hair very soft, unlike the Aphogee Keratin and Green Tea, which gave my hair a lot of bounce, but felt like straw.

I just switched from this product. Although I think it does protect the hair, it did not give me that smooth silky finish that I wanted, and my hair didn't seem to straighten as well with it. I switched to Mizani Therasmooth serum and am liking it a lot better.

note: not disagreeing with you Queen13, just sharing my experience :D

I tried the Olive Oil Silk Therapy heat protectant (in the green bottle) and had similar results to you. . . Worked as a protectant, but my hair was not silky, and nice after. I did give it to my Mom and she fell in love with it. I might have to try the Mizani serum in the future.

No Sweets, I haven't tried the full line. I was so desperate for something to help me with flat ironing that I didn't even realize there are other Therasmooth products. I just grabbed it off the shelf and ran, lol! (after paying of course!) I will go back and look at the other products and see if they look good. Is there like a shampoo, conditioner, and everything ?

Yeah, I didn't see the olive oil one until after I bought the regular one. It sounds like they are very similar. AC you are being so good, not straightening your hair. I am so jealous :p.

Sweets I searched it online and the reviews are definitely favorable. Just a note of caution for those who are avoiding sulfates, the Mizani shampoo contains sodium laurel sulfate. I might try it but couldn't use it every week because I do need sulfate free shampoo except once in a blue moon when I need to clarify. But then again, this whole system is high in cones so a sulfate shampoo would be in order.

The CHI shampoo has sulfates in it, just so you're aware. ;) I bought the whole line at a combination of Ross and TJ Maxx. That stuff is awesome, and the products really do compliment eachother.

I have never tried Chi- but it is so at the top of my list when I use heat in the future. Everything I have tried has been okay at protecting my hair from heat- but either smells weird or didn't leave my hair silky (Beyond the Zone product from Sallys).

To me, the best heat protectant is grapeseed oil. It's the best because not only is it a heat protectant but it's all natural and it seals in moisture.

Is there any other way to use the Silk Elements Heat Protectant?

I have the regular one and the olive oil one. My stylist doesn't want to use these products on my hair, since he uses an oil blend--which I bring in.
