My hair isn't usually too difficult to manage- it's straight and pretty fine. However, I do use quite a bit of heat on it when I blow dry and straighten and it can sometimes look a bit flat and lacklustre. I always look at girls with silky glossy hair and get major hair envy. Seriously, how do they get a mirror quality shine with the feel of silk lingerie? HOW?
With the desire for a healthy, shiny mane in mind, I decided to purchase a hair care product other than shampoo and conditioner (yup, this is my first venture out of the bog standard hair products! Maybe that's why my hair isn't as shiny...)
Loreal Studio Silk and Gloss is especially created for use with hair straighteners. It both protects from the heat and makes your hair smooth and silky to the touch. Lovely! Before straightening your hair, spary a couple of...sprays onto your hair and then straighten. You will hear a bit of a sizzling sound at first (which startled me a bit...my hair's on fire!) but after that it glides really well and leaves your hair soft and silky. The bottle claims that it gives you 24 hour anti-frizz, which for me it does, but my hair isn't too frizzy anyway (though it looks a bit frizzy in this picture-oops). The silky feeling of the hair does last all day though.
