Looking for a professional blow dry lotion not too heavy, greasy or stiff?
I am naturally curly but dry my hair straight. I am currently using Morrocan oil but it has left a silicone build up. I want my hair to feel smooth & soft. I can buy from a hair & beauty wholesalers so would like to know of any professional brands that are good. I use irons after blow drying so thermal protection would be good.
I have similar texture. My face before blow drying course hair smooth is rescue repair sealed ends by Schwarzkopf. Second to that would be Schwarzkopf osis session styling smoothing cream. Both quite heavy but just enough to weigh the hair down and feel silky. You may have to play around with the amount you use. I use the first product (a pea size amount) on wet hair to blowdry, the on dry hair before straightening.
Ooh the most weightless product I've used (though I personally need something heavy) is Schwarzkopf osis blow n go smooth. It's a spray mist and apparently speeds up drying time alongside smoothing the hair.
I use a protective spray before straightening - is that the type of product you are after? If so, I would really recommend the one I use, which is by GHD (I buy it in the salon, but I imagine you can get it from amazon tbh) straight and smooth spray for normal to fine hair £12.95. It is weightless, lasts ages and makes my hair silky when straightening.
