My hair goes through frequent styling, direct heat exposure which will definitely lead to damaging my hair. Adding pain to injury, my hair has been colored and treated so many times that it deserves all the tender loving care in this hair world!
I have used up my CHI Silk Infusion which I ordered on ebay, I tried to repurchase but looking for it online is quite tedious and the shipping rate turns me off! I have to find for an alternative. I'm happy to announce, I've found my partner for hair ironing!

At first glance, the price shocked the hell out of me! But after several usage, I would say this is worth it as compared to purchasing something online and paying an arm and leg for shipping fee! I'm glad I can purchase this and take this home A.S.A.P.
L'Oreal tecni.art Hot Style Iron Finish is cream based, base on research on product usage, applying this product on dry hair is recommended. For review purposes, I've tried using this on damp hair and dry hair! (Note: I can do this test as my flat iron can be used on both wet and dry hair, be careful not to do this regularly as it could ruin your hair). Both dry and damp hair works well with this product. I came out with a nice straight hair that doesn't feel heavy and soft to the touch!
One thing to add, though the price is quite pricey, I think base on my usage, this can last me more than 6 months of daily usage! Which is worth the price!
- always test on the amount of product that works 'comfortably' on your hair, I've tried pea size, a dollar coin size and for my hair length, a dollar coin size is perfect.
- I spread the product all over the lower ends of the hair, then using the remaining product on my palm, rub it all over the root area to create a "lift"
- use a clarifying shampoo once or twice a week to prevent product build up
Before I repurchase, I also have the "spray type" counterpart called L'Oreal tecni.art Hot Style Constructor which works for BOTH damp and dry hair, I'll see which one works for me and I can finally tell which one I'll repurchase.
