I straighten my hair a lot, and I use this 'Power Straight' balm from a line called 'Straight Sexy Hair'. Lame name, haha, but the stuff is cool and it works.

Fekkai's glossing creme before and after blow dry helps me a lot.

I know what you mean about that Umberto Gianni stuff....Ive used it before and I ended up throwing most of it away, it smelt horrible.

Anyway, I always use Pantene "Smooth and Sleek" frizz control, which makes hair soft and straight, and smells really, really nice, and its only about £4.

And at the other price scale I get this stuff called "Potion 9" which I get from my hairdresser (costs about £30-40 ) and use it occasionally, and it is AMAZING.

I've used the following:

Redken "Straight" - *** -Makes your hair beautifully silky and straight, but it only works if you use it in the morning. If you, as I do, blow dry your hair before going to bed, you will wake up with waves.

Ultimate Smoothie Straightening Balm - ***** - I luuuuv!!! Lasts, makes your hair soft but not too soft... I use it all the time.

I had more to type about but I have brain freeze and can't remember their names. I used the U. Gianinni shampoo... STUNK like my dad's cologne!

This kind of applies to straightening and I didn't want to start a new topic, so...

My hair is straight, but it still gets a bit of frizz (just no waves). What sort of product might help with this? My hair's short and it dries nicely unless I sleep on it, so I don't blow it dry (it looks kind of bad if I do). Suggestions?

Sounds like my hair. I just rub in a bit of pomade while it's damp. My hair is slightly wavy and this trick seems to calm it down without blowdrying. The right shampoo/conditioner combo helps too.

OMG, now that I am back at my parent's house I realize what a luxury softwater is. It improves the texture of your hair dramatically.

Keeping Hair Straightend - Styling and Product Recommendations
My problem is that if I straighten my hair, it looks great - but a few hours later my slight curl comes back into my hair. It's a bit of a pain when I want straight hair Does anyone know of any good quality hair straightening balms/products that I could try?

I have EXTREMELY curly hair and I live in a hot humid environment, so when I straighten my hair I use a sapphire straighening iron and some frizz ease (which protects against the water in the air curling the hair after a few hours).

I also have used some straightening balm by Aveda that is quite good. cant recall the name though.

Beauty Lab "Ultimate Smoothie Straightening Balm" works like a dream for me, but I just have a few waves.

Redken Straight works, but not well enough to warrant buying.

I once tried this stuff called Frizz Control 1234 or something... it was awesome, but too strong for me. More suited for something with SERIOUS curls that needed straightened. I would def recommend it for you... it's a drugstore product, too.
