                    While applying on damp hair to blow dry this actually defined my curls really good and the whole purpose was to blow dry straight so maybe if I was going for my natural I would say its good but not for going curly to straight

                        • Q:

                          I've never used CHI products and am looking for recommendations on products to use in combination with the CHI shampoo and conditioner. I have naturally curly hair. I like washing and wearing curly one day and then the next day using dry shampoo and flat ironing. Any advice?

                            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.

                            We get great feedback on the use of Straight Guard on curly hair. The cocktail of these two products could be great for coarse and curly hair. However, we caution that the two of them together may be heavier than desired for finer hair types.
