i live in a very dry climate, and about two years ago my hair turned curly. it used to be straight. it is not unhealthy, but extremely unmanageable. i rarely dye it, but sometimes blowdry/flat iron, then sleep on it a few nights.
FI affectionately says its like an SOS pad.
can you recommend products without silicone that will smooth my hair? what about oil or something?

You could try Moroccan/Argan oil. I’ve heard amazing things about it.
I have extremely thick, frizzy, unmanagable hair and live in a place with very hard water, which just makes it worse. I really like the 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner from Aussie. I also like doing olive oil treatments once every few weeks.

I would recommend trying Argan Oil. Just a few drops depending on your length of hair! If you want to try a good creme insteadl/as well, I would recommend Frederick Fekkai Smoothing cream. Its great for controlling frizz and helps define.

Another vote for Argan oil – watch out though, a little goes a LONG way and you’ll just end up with greasy hair if you use too much. I’ve used the Fekkai Smoothing Cream with great results too.
Coconut oil treatments seem to make my curly hair smoother as well.

I almost guarantee it has silicone in it, but I’m not sure why you’re avoiding it, so if you’re interested try Aussie Anti-Frizz cream for control during the day. Super light control, doesn’t feel like you have a bunch of crap in your hair — I love it.
The best thing that helped my hair when I thought it was dry was H’Suan Wen Hua http://www.lushusa.com/H%27Suan-Wen-Hua/00095,en_US,pd.html?start=4&cgid=hair-treatments by Lush. Fantastic hair treatment.

Check out the forums at naturallycurly.com. If you stop using sulfates and silicones, it will really help. Also, don’t brush your hair after you shower and don’t use a towel to dry it off. Use a microfiber towel or tshirt to scrunch it. Right now I’m using the beautiful curls line (babies and up is my favorite) from whole foods and I love it.

I use Ever Sleek shampoo and conditioner for my hair. It has no sulfate and does not contain heavy silicones. I love it, it make my hair soft, sleek and manageable. You would never guess that my hair was ever super frizzy.
I do use a large curling iron for the front but that is all.

Consider getting a keratin treatment. I have fine, curly hair and it’s a godsend.

I like Jessicurl products. You can get them at CurlMart.com. I actually just bought some more of their cleansing cream/conditioner, and it was on sale.

I bought the Moroccan Oil mask, right after the first try is smoother…
@BlondeMissMolly – that site is awesome! thanks
@Neetch – my hair is super thin so I get build up right away, and it damages easily – my hair dresser told me to stay away from silicone and sulfates
Thanks for the help, I’m going to order some more styling products.

You should try pro naturals moroccan argan oil, reduces the frizz, protects the hair and leaves it soft, shiny and healthy. I bought it online at safrons. com , it’s really good. 😛
