I'm in an official straight hair phase. I wear my hair straight in the fall and winter because it's impossible to keep my naturally curly hair straight in the summer, humidity in NY being what it is. But, with straight strands comes the risk of heat damage and there are few things worse for curly girls than too much heat. Blow dryers and flat irons wreak havoc on fragile curls, causing dryness, breakage and frizz. Enter heat protectants. I don't let appliances near my hair without them and today I'm taking a look at Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Creme from L'Oreal.
L'Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Creme
Instantly penetrates to silken and straighten with nourishing care. Helps ease blow-drying and flat-ironing as it protects from heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Tames over-worked, unmanageable hair. When used with the shampoo and conditioner, it helps control frizz for up to 72 hours.
