          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

                      Comments about Chi Straight Guard Smoothing Styling Cream:

                      I use just about every other CHI hair product but this is the first time I've gotten this styling cream. It's not too bad for the few times I've used it. It's not greasy but it is kind of sticky feeling when I apply it to dry hair. I wanted a product that I could use on both damp and dry hair and had read that this would serve both. But it does tend to be a little more gooey on dry hair. The pump is great and dispenses just the right amount of product. And it smells great!

                        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.

                          A:

                          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! :-)

                        will this give me the same amount of protection as iron guard 44 stay firm or the iron guard ? Or should I use both? And can this product be to curl with a curling wand ? Or should I use something else ?

                          Yes, Straight Guard provides the same level of heat protection since it is also formulated with CHI 44 Ceramic thermal styling. And yes, you can certainly use it with your curling iron to create gorgeous, sleek, frizz-free curls.
