              While applying on damp hair to blow dry this actually defined my curls really good and the whole purpose was to blow dry straight so maybe if I was going for my natural I would say its good but not for going curly to straight

                            I usually let my hair air dry then flat iron later on, maybe even waiting till the next day. Would I apply this while my hair is still damp, or can I wait and apply before flat ironing ?

                              The Straight Guard is designed specifically to be used with a heat-producing tool and unfortunately will not provide the same effect if left to air-dry on the hair.

                              We get great feedback on the use of Straight Guard on curly hair. The cocktail of these two products could be great for coarse and curly hair. However, we caution that the two of them together may be heavier than desired for finer hair types.

                              Response from CHI: "Thanks for the interesting feedback. It isn't what the Straight Guard Smoothing Styling Cream was developed for, but after testing this method of use, I can understand the rumor! The only drawback you'll find is that because there is no hold in the straight guard, the definition of the curls did not last throughout the day. For smoothing and defining curls with a light-weight hold, we recommend our new CHI Styling Cream Gel. It is actually Zendaya's favorite product to use on her naturally curly hair. Just apply to towel-dried hair and diffuse upside down or air dry for perfect natural curls."

                              We hope this helps! :-)
