    it works

    Comments about Paul Mitchell Smoothing Straight Works:

    it really relaxes curles making blow outs way faster and easier. I personally think it works way better than the skinny serum. Great shine and softness.

            I live in Florida. Blowing my hair out in the winter is no problem and lasts days. Summer not so much. This keeps the poof down, it seems to prevent the hair shafts from absorbing the inevitable sweat and humidity.

            Lot of product for the price also.

              I have been using Paul Mitchell's Straight Works for more years than I can remember. I combine it with Paul Mitchell's skinny serum onto damp hair. It leaves my hair shiny and healthy. It is a product I cannot be without.

                      Can/should I use this product with the skinny serum or just one or the other? Also, do I need another blowout product? I've air dried my curly hair for several years. Now growing it out and blowing out and having frizz issues.

                        you can use those products together. We do recommend a heat protector for heat tools.

                    • Q:

                      I currently have curly hair and am looking for something that will straighten it without using a flatiron. Will this product do that? If so, how long does it last? I don't want to permanently straighten my hair.

                        A:

                        Straight Works and Super Skinny Relaxing Balm would be products that would give smoothness and control. However, these products are best used for a smooth result when combined with heat styling. Without the use of heat you can expect your hair to air dry with softness, less frizz and a tamed wave.

                      Does this product protect hair from heat or do I need to use a separate product for heat protection?

                        Straight Works does not provide thermal protection. For thermal protection from damaging styling irons that perfectly delivers both beautiful shine and firm hold, try the Neuro™ Protect HeatCTRL® Iron Hairspray.
