      Comments about Chi Straight Guard Smoothing Styling Cream:

      I use CHI straight guard almost daily to help cut down on the frizz of my thick, curly hair that I straighten using a flat iron (Wet2Straight flat iron by ). It's not a heavy product and you wouldn't be able to tell I had anything in my hair if you didn't know. It does leave a bit of residue behind on my flat iron, but it wipes off easily with a dry towel.

      The only issue I had and it wasn't with the product it was with the way it was packaged and shipped to me. Instead if making sure the pump cap was turned in the "closed" position, it was taped with a piece of scotch tape and placed in a plastic bag. It wasn't in the plastic bag alone, however, it was with my BareMinerals. In transit, product came out of the pump and not only got all over the bottle and inside of the bag, but all over my BareMinerals make-up, since they were put into the same plastic bag. I'm glad my make-up came in a box, otherwise it would have damages the make-up case it came in. Seriously, make sure pumps are in the "closed" position before packing. They don't just come unlocked from the closed position on their own. And they should be in their own plastic bag.

                I bought Chi Straight Guard when I had long hair, but never really used it until I cut it into a pixie. My hair is thin, straight, and fine. This product is great for everyday use. I put it in my hair and let it air dry or blow dry. It holds the style all day. It doesn't let it frizz and keeps fly aways tamed. ALSO GREAT FOR MY COWLICK ON MY FOREHEAD! I have never found anything that helps my cowlick better than this. It's not heavy or greasy. Leaves hair looking natural, but tamed. Also, smells great. My boyfriend also uses it sometimes. I would definitely recommend.

                  Comments about Chi Straight Guard Smoothing Styling Cream:

                  This is a great product and worked as I thought it would. I have fine wavy hair that is frizzy whether I air dry or blow dry it, so I wanted something to tame the frizz and straighten at the same time.
                  I tried it two ways before this review: Use on wet hair and air dry; use on damp hair and blow dry. It looked great when air dried. It kept my natural wave, but there was absolutely no frizz. Perfect style when I'm running short on time in the morning. When blow dried, it was fine. I'd say it cut down on the frizz about 80% and it was slightly straighter than without it.
                  One pump is the perfect amount, so the bottle should last quite a while. It does have a scent, but it's not overpowering and goes away once dried.
                  Overall, nothing is a miracle product, but this worked well and I'm glad I purchased it.

                      I have very curly hair. I would like something that I can put in my damp hair then air dry then flat iron. I need my hair to be protected from the damage a flat iron can give. Is this product to be used like I described above?

                        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! :-)

                        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.

                        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.

                      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.
