    My hair stylist used this on my hair last time, & I really liked it. I had used the Chi silk fusion before, but had not tried this product. Bought some for myself & liked it very much. Easy to use on daily basis, good for hair, & is cruelty-free!

                          A:

                          CHI Total Protect is a cream and is great for medium to coarse hair that needs more moisture and thermal protection. CHI Iron Guard is good for finer hair and has some hold to smooth the hair. Use them on wet hair prior to blow drying. CHI 44 Iron Guard can be lightly sprayed on hair prior to using the CHI Ceramic iron, a little goes a long way.

                          A:

                          We recommend applying the Total Protect to clean, towel-dried hair. Following application, dry your hair completely. Then, apply the Straight Guard to dry hair in sections. Style with your CHI tools as usual and finish with the Keratin Silk Infusion, particularly on your ends. Depending on your specific hair type and needs, you may have to play with how much product works best to control your frizz without weighing down your hair.
