          I don't have particularly strong feelings about this product, it was merely ok. Hair was left reasonably soft and manageable but I've had better. The smell isn't bad persay but I wouldn't call it good.

            I love this product. I never used it before until my hair dresser used it and told me to try it out! Since then, I have always used it. I have super thick curly hair and it helps keep the frizz down and tames the curls.

                This really did nothing for my hair. After using it for a week or two, my hair felt weighed down, it was dry, and it looked very dull. Not the right product for me at all.

                  Comments about Chi Straight Guard:

                  I really don't have time to spend with a flat iron, plus it damage my colored hair so much. I felt so happy when I tried this product many years ago, since that I been loyal to it, I had tried other brands but nothing had work so good as this one. I wash my hair every other day and when its still damp I use 2-3 pumps, comb it and use a hair clip to keep my hair straight, leave it clip for long time but I do unclip it periodically and comb it while it dries. You will be amaze how straight your hair will be, without no iron, I have lots of hair so I use two hair clips to pull it back. It's the best!!!

                    Best Uses

                    • Blowdrying
                    • Straightening

                    Comments about Chi Straight Guard:

                    I literally just finished blowdrying my hair w/ Straight Guard for the first time and was already composing my review halfway through. I don't think I've ever raved about a product before, but this is AMAZING. My hair is softer, smoother, and shinier than it's been in more than a year (after some coloring mishaps). I usually use a mishmash of styling products before blowdrying--FrizzEase serum, a leave-in conditioner/moisturizer spray, a split-end healer, a straightening cream/heat protector. But this time I decided to just use the Straight Guard to see if it worked standalone, and my god, it was fantastic.

                    I'll start at the beginning: the bottle uses a pump, which I always prefer because you can dispense a more precise amount of product. Just a little bit goes a long way; my hair is shoulder length right now, but thick, and the product itself is incredibly lightweight (something between a cream and a lotion) so it spreads easily. You can actually see a pearlescent quality in the cream, which translates to shine on my hair like I've never seen.

                    I'm not sure if it cut drying time at all, but I actually noticed an improved straightness to my hair. SO MANY "straightening" creams/serums promise that result, but I always have to go over my hair with a flat iron after I'm done blow drying. Supposedly that's good for locking the cuticle, but putting that much more heat on your hair just never seems like a healthy move. Straight Guard eliminated that step. And did I mention my hair is shiny, soft, and smooth as all get out?

                    So for the time saving, the fact that it takes the place of all those other products, and the sheer quality, this one is more than worth the price.

                    For reference, my hair is naturally kinky but relaxed. This product seemed to work well on both the relaxed part and the little bit of new growth.

                          It is very easy to use. I have wavy hair but somehow recently they started to curl more which was very annoying. And after reading few reviews and advised by the sales person at the shop I bought this product. But to my surprise its now working at all on my hair. I am very disappointed.

                            Will this product protect my hair from hot tools like iron guard will? My concern is thermal protection, however, I have wavy and frizzy hair, so this would be an added bonus if it will work so I can limit the amount of products I use.

                              For your hair type and concerns, we recommend Straight Guard. Straight Guard is an ideal treatment to control frizz and shape and define curls. You can use Straight Guard with Total Protect, if you prefer - the order of application would be Total Protect, then Straight Guard.
