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.
I was looking for an every-day styling product to keep my hair straight, protect from the heat and humidity. This particular product had all great reviews, so I could not wait to try it. It looks like it's a good value for the price, and easy to use. However, it left my hair dry, and the smell was competing with my perfume.

Holy moly! My mouth literally dropped after seeing my hair straightened with the help of this product, the Silk Infusion product, and my flat iron! I recently had some hair extensions sewed into my hair with a partial leave out on top (some of my hair was left out). I am natural (4b texture) and did not want my hairstylist to blowout or silk press my leave out, so she flat ironed it. Unfortunately, my hair only stayed straight for a day and then began to curl back up. I desperately searched for products that would smooth my hair and make it easier to blend with my extensions. I stumbled across this product on YouTube and bought it and the Silk Infusion product the next day. I was amazed at how silky and straight the 2 products made my hair! I am very happy to report that thanks to CHI's amazing products, my natural hair is blending much better with my extensions.

This styling cream literally makes your hair feel so soft and shiny! I've always loved CHI styling products and decided to try this. When I first put it on my hair, before drying, it did not feel soft like some creams. After you blow-dry and style your hair, it works like magic! I always use a leave-in conditioner on my hair, but this CHI styling cream takes away all the frizz! I love it & definitely recommend to anyone!!

I purchased this along with other chi products during a b2g1 sale. This cream does smooth my hair and it smells pretty good, but it flakes if you blow dry your hair with it in. The infratreatment doesnt do this. I've experimented with and which out this smoothing cream and my hair doesnt flake when I leave this product out which makes me not want to use it. I like to prolong the time in between washes to prevent too much damage.

I had used in past and when it became unavailable at salons was difficult to find. Was absolutely thrilled when found that ulta carried chi products.

Would not recommend!!! It is very sticky and hairspray-like. Does not do the job, hair only stays straight for a few hours. Overall Terrible product.

Easy to use!!

I have very fine hair and with the colder weather, my hair tends to have a frizzy look to it. This product is light weight and is easy to use. I do not feel any build up from using this product and my hair tends to be oily and so far I have not had this occur.
Bobbie from AZ
I've used this for years. It does the job. I don't only use it for straightening but all styles. It protects and tames my frizzy hair.
Cece from Illinois
I use it daily to straighten the curly hair near my ears and give some volume and hold to my style.
MM from Oregon
I love this product! I use it before I straighten my hair. Works amazing and holds even in humid weather.

I use this after the Chi Tea Tree shampoo and conditioner and my hair has never felt healthier! Its shiny, soft, and doesn't feel weighed down at all. These 3 products are making me want to switch to using only chi on my hair.

I love Chi Straight Guard Smoothing Cream! It does exactly what it says it will do!

This doesn't do much to control frizz, but smooths a bit. If I blow dry straight and use this, my hair still looks frizzy.
Jessibug from North Carolina
I used this after towel drying my hair before straightening my hair with my wet 2 straight straightener. It looks as though it goes on greasy and leaves your hands sticky but after straightening my hair, the greasy look was gone. Kept my hair straight and kept the frizz down through major humidity and rain!

This works very well!
