I've bought the spray version a couple of times and loved it. It was on offer last time so I brought the spray and the cream. I think this stuff is the best I'm gonna get unless I pay ridiculous amount of money. I'm not even sure there is a product that can completely rid me of frizz. It has no instructions but it's pretty straight forward. I put it on my damp hair then blow dry and straighten, or on my dry hair and straighten. I have the English version, I'm not sure what other people have but I know formulas can change in different countries. This version certainly doesn't leave any crispiness. You can't feel it on your hair, but you can tell you've used it because hair is very shiny, like in a shampoo advert. It's so soft and I can actually run my fingers through it. I can feel that my thick hair which frizzes up with even the slightest bit of humidity stays sleek and flat. In light rain I can barely notice the refrizzination. So I will be using this over and over for a long time, along with the spray, until I my hair decides to develop resistance to it anyway.

This creamy goo works wonders for my hair. I have used it since it came out several years ago. It's really cheap, but definately worth the price and more! The trick is to use only a small bit on damp hair. It has a nice, light smell and a light consistency. It has never made my hair oily or crunchy. I will always have this in my hair care drawer!

I ran out of my regular anti-frizz so I thought I'd try this out since it was so much cheaper. I really wish it was going to work so I could save some money but it didn't. It left my hair feeling sticky as if I hadn't washed off all my shampoo. I felt like I was going to get pimples all over my cheeks from the stuff in my hair. An hour or so after doing my hair I could see the frizz coming back. The bottle says in small type that it's anti-frizz for thin hair so that might have been the issue with my medium to thick hair. This stuff isn't for me and I'll be returning this.

This is great for protecting your hair against heat and for keeping it in place. It doesn't leave my hair greasy in any way, it makes it feel very silky and smooth and prevents it from frizzing. The smell is nice and not too overpowering, the only downside to it is that, if you want to have stick-straight hair, it's not going to last during humid weather, especially for thick hair like I have. Otherwise I'm loving it and probably repurchasing.

This is my new miracle product. I have wavy, frizzy hair that I blow-dry and flat-iron every day, and I live in a very windy, very humid country. So keeping my hair straight is a huge challenge. I used to rely on a lot of silicone serum plus hairspray (and hope) to keep my hair straight and silky. Now, I only have to use StudioLine Hot Straight, and it works so much better. I'm really amazed at how well my hair stays straight when I use it.
Of course, if it's too humid, my hair will start to frizz up and curl a little, but much less now than when I was only using silicone serum. If I know the weather is really bad, I use Hot Straight and a tiny bit of silicone serum, but most of the time it's not necessary.
The only downside is that there's no way I can go a second day without washing my hair after I use Hot Straight. There's just too much product in my hair and it looks pretty dirty. But I generally wash my hair every day anyway, so I don't mind.

Let me say this first: for the price you pay, you definitely get a great product! I also repurchased this a couple of times and LOVE the scent but this stuff tends to make my hair feel heavy and if I overdo it (and that can happen very fast with this) it tends to look greasy and thats the main reason I took one lippy off and the main reason this isnīt my HG. Anyhow, if your budget is low or you just want to save some money and to set pricier salon brands aside, try this =)

Am I mistaken, or has this product been discontinued for about a year? I never see it at the store, though I've looked everywhere. It does a great job protecting my hair from heat and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. I think it smells great as well! After not being able to find it again, I would use what little was left in my bottle on rare occasions. I was thrilled when I recently found a stash of the black bottle version at Big Lots for $2 each, so I bought them up!

I don't like this much - it tends to leave my hair greasy, no matter how little I use. The smell is overpowering, it doesn't seem to protect my hair, leaves me with a lot of buildup. I prefer my tresemme heat protecter. The packaging sucks aswell.

Its a great cheap product to protect your hair from the straightening. I love it! I think i have bought it 3-4 times. it really does protect my hair really good. I give my hair such a hard time with the iron. But they are soo healthy that i still can't beleive it.
It does weight you hair down and they don't feel as soft as usual but you are the only one who notices that.
The only thing i don't like is that i wanted it to be in a spray form like the one for curling your hair. Its a lot easier and i am kind of lazy

Just to let everyone know, that the company did change the packaging a little bit from the picture that is up there, however it is still pink and gray and only has 3 little square dot thingys :)
Overall rating: This product absoloutly deserves 5 lippies. After getting out of the shower, let your hair dry a little bit by the towel, just so its not too wet, then out about a dime sized amount of this product in your hair, all the way to the roots.Then, blow dry your hair straight (just to help a little bit) after that, flat iron your hair. When using this product, I noticed that it cut down on the amount of time it takes me to straighten my hair, (I have medium- long hair and its extremly thick) i'd say it only took me about 10-15 minutes to straighten it really good, vs, 30-40 minutes. My hair feels silky, and less frizzy. Plus, it stay straight longer, doesnt wave back like it usually does.
Price: Regularly, its a little bit over 4.00$ CAD which is pretty cheap
Packaging: It's fairly good, like others said iit would be better if it came in a pump but it isnt the end of the world, the way it is now.
Buy Again??: I would definetly buy again, as a matter of fact im on my 2nd bottle
This product last very long,
Overall: Great Buy! You'll love this product!

This product was an amazing pick-up. It really made my hair silky and smooth and had this iridescent shine and glow to it. It made the job/time of straightening my hair reduce drastically. I have very fine and thick hair and it's very layered, as I cut my own hair. So it does become a drag to straighten my hair because it use to be a 30 minute process. I use to use Tresemme's Heat Tamer Spray religiously, as it smelled amazing and did the job, however I had to always wait for it to dry and sometimes left my hair a little dry and brittle at the ends of my hair. It only takes me 10 minutes now, using this product. It has made such a drastic difference. I did notice that the packaging was a bit crappy. I love the whole squeeze-tube concept, it's very precise, however, whenever I try to shut the cap after finishing, it always has a ball of air inside that forbids me to close it using one hand. And to top it off, the design isn't that great. Pink and grey? Big no-no.
In conclusion. It does such a great job adding shine, silky-ness, etc. Really speeds up the concept of straightening hair. (BTW, how I use this product; I squeeze a pea-sized amount, gently rub it throughout my fingertips and smooth it all over my lower half of my hair, and repeat the process for my upper half, as I have really thick, course hair) Overall, you do get your money's worth and it will last you MUCH longer than a spray bottle (:
(12/6/10): So I've been using this for a few weeks now and I must say I still love it. However, you have to be REALLY careful not to touch your roots because if you're like me, and you shower after every other day to keep the essential oils your hair needs to stay healthy, you WILL get greasy hair on the second day, and it makes my hair feel REALLY heavy. So that's a tip. And the last thing I'd have to say is that the packaging is really pissing me off. The nozzle CANNOT close properly. I figured out that it's not the air in the bottle that's preventing me from closing it. Whenever I close the bottle, some of the product started squeezing out from under the push-cap. It's so frustrating and because of that, it loses a lippy ):

NO way! The smell's the BEST. I like this product...It makes hair easier to style as it smooths it too. It does noticeably make the hair straighter..but looking for something different. I bouth John freida's straightening cream and will update. They should change up the packaging...it is a little 80's. I would get this again merely because the smell is outstanding and reminds me of the l"oreal products of the 80's and brings back good memories but overall this isnot anything so special.
Update: the joh freida one was terrible and I returned it. I have just upped the rating to 5 and realized this is an hg for me. It controls frizz and assist the hair in straightening a little bit and the smell is unbeleivable which is reason itself. The packaging I can live with too as it is pink. It NEVER gave me a problem my expectations were just too high as I had nothing to compare it to as it was my first product like this ever. what is EVEN better is it contains alcohol which is hard to find in a product like this period, let alone a drugstore one and no alcohol is always a good thing.

I just recently discovered why I bought this so long ago. I don't really know why I stopped using it, maybe because I wasn't worried about putting products in my hair, but this is a godsend. I straighten my hair everyday, (well, not on Sundays) haha, and this makes my hair soft, silky and super shiny! I usually put this in with dry hair to tell you the truth. I take a dime size amount, rub it between my hands, and put it all over (except my roots). It makes my hair soft and easily manageable and takes less time to do in the morning. The smell is nice, could be better, but this product is amazing! I reccomend this for anyone who wants to get a product cheap, but has wonderful results!

I love this stuff. I use it as a detangler/leave-in conditioner/heat protectant. I usually apply it to my hair wet, but I've put it on dry hair before and it was fine! It is a cream consistency, smells very pretty and does NOT make hair greasy or gunky feeling. It absorbs beautifully and makes my (very long) hair soft and manageable. I usually just let it air dry but it works just as well when I blow dry and straighten. It is a good price (about $5 in Canada) and worth every dime! I highly recommend for all hair types and lengths!

I hardly straighten my hair anymore, but when I did/do I use hot straight! I feel so much better knowing I'm not damaging my hair (or at least, less than without this product) and I love how it keeps hair sleek, straight and in form for the rest of the day.. Definately a product for people who use a lot of heat-styling products!

i bought this product because of the commercials with beyonce in it a few years back. the first time i used it, i thought it was wonderful, but after that, it was never the same. It felt as if my hair was weighed down. and i had to use the product sparingly to not get the weighed down feeling. Ive got curly mixed hair. and L-oreal really sold it to me by having beyonce be the sponser. boo on them.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
This works!! I little squeeze of this in the hair and then blowdrying it dry, it gets really straight (: ofcause not perfecty straight, you'de still have to rund a quick round throughout the hair with a flatning iron. But it makes a difference and it works. A downside to me is, that you really dont want to use to much in your hair, becuase it gets greasy. Mine dose. But with the right amound its good (:

I decided to give this a try since it was on sale for $2.50. It's usually pretty cheap even when it's not on sale. I usually use CHI silk infushion as a heat protectant but was looking for a cheaper alternative. One of the cons about this product is that you can really only use it when your hair is wet. I like to put a heat protectant in my dry hair when I am fixing up my hair that's already been straightened.For that I use CHI silk infusion. For blow drying and straightening wet hair I rub about a quarter size of this stuff into my hands and then evenly distribute this into my hair. I have thick curly hair so if you have straight hair then you may need less. Less is usually more when it comes to this stuff. If you put too much in then it will really weigh your hair down and your hair will feel grose. My hair isn't extremely soft after using this stuff but I wouldn't expect it to be. I use extreme heat when blow drying and straightening my hair and I don't expect this product to be a miracle for my hair. It works adequetly well and its cheap so I would buy this again and continue using it.

its good stuff -- but i have to say a little disappointing because it kind of weighs down my hair slightly. but i love the smell and it does leave hair soft.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I'm with Silvertips on this one-a big disappointment. As if Beyonce really uses it.
It weights my hair down (some achievement really! but not what I was after here) It's sticky and made my hair feel very 'gunged up'. Didn't really seem to make any difference at protecting my hair, just made it feel and look dull and abit manky really.
