I've used the Shea Moisture product. I did see a difference in my hair as far as reduction of frizz and shedding. It has been 2 months and I will say that my texture is slightly different in the part of my hair that didn't really have a curl pattern. The ends of that section are straight so now I have to rod them when I do my twist outs.

Hmm, so I was still doing some research on these straightening products and this article popped up. I thought it was a good read: http://www.curlynikki.com/2014/04/a-new-category-of-hair-care-products.html

For some reason I thought these straightening systems were keratin treatments....however I don't think it's chemicals...I would go with a bunch of silicones like one poster said. I say this because the youtubers I watched use it actually put something like a leave in conditioner in their hair, let it dry then flat ironed it bone straight.

I like got2b keraflat

It works best using the tension method to blow dry then when it's time to flat irom use small section. I also use any keratin shampoo and conditioner to make the hair smooth and straighter. About three days later i like to apply a anti frizz serum to ends only.

None of the antihumectants work in my hair. I was even in the Aveda shop recently to price check the antihumectant pomade and they wanted $45 (hahaha-no!). I already know about roller setting but magnetic rollers aren't really available here either (everyone loves the stupid caruso and velco rollers though *sigh*). I didn't mind too much before because I used to go home regularly but airfare is pretty obscenely expensive & shipping is not much better so I'm pretty much left scrambling to work with what little I've got.


After reading the post

http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/amino-acids-for-pressing-hairomgamazing_topic354323.html

It seems like a really good technique. She clarifies with a bakingsoda mixture(but i would say put an oz or 2 of conditioner mixed in as well instead of only distilled water), and then puts amino acids to straighten it. You might want to read into it and try it out.

If your worried about heat damage.  There are a few ways to straighten our hair without heat.  The methods mostly involve some type of roller set done over night instead of sitting under a dryer.

 
If you want a look that is straighter than a roller set you could always wrap the hair afterwards to get a smoother look.
