        By Angie

        from Indiana

        Comments about Chi Straight Guard Smoothing Styling Cream:

        Was so excited to try CHI products. For me...this leaves my hair frizzy looking. And the smell is more of a chemical. I was hoping it would make my hair silky smooth, but it tangles it more. Makes it look dry & it feels dry. Im gonna have to stick with Wella & Matrix.

                  LOVE this! Been using it for about 2 years now. I have crazy thick, wavy hair and this product not only controls my frizz but makes my hair silky and soft! I even used it on my friends' hair when we went out one night, and it worked wonders for them as well.
                  I paired it with the CHI 44 Iron Guard, using the Iron Guard before straightening and then using this after. Love 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! :-)

                    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.

                      A:

                      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.

                  • Q:

                    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.

                    I have dry, curly, frizzy hair. Would Straight Gaurd or Total Protect by CHI be better for my hair? Can these be used together? If so, which one should be used first?

                      A:

                      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.
