  • Better Results With Styling Products
    Im half Asian/African American with very thick medium/course spiral curly hair (shoulder length). Takes a long time to straighten my hair. I find that using a blow dryer with a brush or comb attachment is much easier. I also like to wait until my hair is half way dry. Ive been trying Redkens Smooth Down collection and very happy with the results. I use the Heat Glide Smoothing glosser before i blow dry my hair in sections. It helps to protect hair from heat and makes it easier to comb the tangled curls out. I apply more when im ready to use my flat iron. Proclaim Glossing Polish from Sallys is excellent also if youre short on cash. I was going to try Matrix Smooth and Sleek spray but after i read that one of the first ingredients had alcohol in it i put it back on the shelf, however i do like their shampoo and conditioner. I still use my Sebastian Potion 9 and Biolage Thermal Active Setting spray, pretty good products. Its good to switch products once in a while and if youre a hair beauty freak like me youve pretty much tried a whole bunch of stuff out there. I forgot to add, especially if you have dry hair, invest in a satin pillow case or wrap your hair up at night with a satin bonnet or satin scarf. This helps keep the frizz down and natural oils in your hair from being lost. Cotton pillow cases tend to suck the natural oils out of hair making it more dry and prone to breakage. I deep condition my hair once a week, its a must for people who use heat on a regular basis especially if you have color or other chemical processes. I like to use K-Pac from Joico (professional salon only), Mega Moisture from Loreal or Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise at Sallys. Watch out though, too much protein is bad for your hair. Another tip which im sure many of you have heard already is to get your ends trimmed. Ive heard from different people hair should be trimmed every 4, 5, 6 even 8 weeks. I go with the 6 weeks. Well hope this helps, Good luck.

  • Not Too Much Product!!
    Remember too much product on your hair is bad. So using a shampoo and conditionar that works for your hair type and a leave in conditionar should be enough, especially if your using this product regularly(straightener). Although ceramic is the best way, its still hurting your hair. So once again, dont kill your hair by putting too much product in it, and trimming your your hair often is a MUST, its only every 6 weeks!

  • After 5 Months Of Experimenting With This Iron
    Ive had my iron for 5 months, and this is what I have learned. First, I have very fine, thin, and fragile hair. I have it highlighted to hide the gray, and it is damaged. I LOVE this iron, and I have experimented enough to come up with what is right for me, and hopefully it might help you. I wash my hair with Garnier Furtis sleek and smooth shampoo, and use Pantene conditioner. These are both good products for a reasonable price. When I get out of the shower I put a dime size of BioSilk silk therepy in to help with NO tangles. Put it up in a towell for a while and then blow dry. After it is dry I put a DROP, just enought to smooth over your hand and cover, and run my hand thru my hair. Then I iron. I take the very top and put it in a velco curler to get it out of the way,then I iron the sides, I section that back off in two layers, and iron the bottom, I find that pulling it out Vertically is easier and makes it straighter, the I pull done one side of what I have sectioned off and iron it, vertically, then the other. Then I take the velcro curler out and iron that secton, pulling down toward my face, this seems to give a little lift to the top, 7 min. and Im done, and it is STRAIGHT. The next day it is straight, but I put large velcro rollers in and get in the shower and STEAM them in, WALLA, I have straight hair with lots of bounce and volume. I only have to straighten my hair every other day, and use the velcro curlers on the day I dont straighten. Also, when I am done straightening my hair, if it looks kinda fuzzyy, I put another "dot" of bisilk on my hand and run thru my hair. This is what works for me. I know that there has to be some damaged done by this iron, but It is well worth it. My blow dryer and electric curlers did damage also. IF it gets too bad I will just cut it and have another hairstyle, but I will NEVER be without this iron. I have never been happier with the way my hair looks. Hope this helps someone.

  • Smoothers, Serums, Shine Drops
    I love my Solia iron, however Ive found that an iron without the right kind of product just isnt the same! Ive used a number of them now and I have formed an opinion, here it is. USE ONE, never iron unprotected, your hair just wont look as good, especially if you have damage. 1.I have tried BioSilk, loved it, great stuff, expensive though. Walmart sells a knock off of this, same exact results for me. 2.Garnier Fructis Long and Strong anti split ends treatment, now this one smells AMAZING and works well while never seeming greasy no matter how much i use, Id recommend it for slightly less damaged hair than my own though(damage from coloring, is no worse at all from the iron).I still use it, just with the addition of something a bit heavier on my ends. 3. My current favorite straight n smooth cocktail recipe. Silk Elements Glossing Polish(5.99 at Sally), great stuff, smells good, works as well or better than biosilk for me. I put this in when my hairs wet and let it air dry. Then i add a few pumps of Beyond The Zone Turn Up The Heat Flat Iron Protection Spray(5.99 at Sally), aiming for the ends.This is a very effective product but use lightly, if you go crazy with it you might find it to almost feel oily, but the spray means no more goopy hands! I iron my hair while this is still wet and my end result is light swingy SILKY hair every time with no fried look on the ends. So, in my humble opinion you dont have to spend a fortune to smooth, protect, and maximize your irons performance.It seems to me that there are probably dozens of products that would work great when youre already starting with a great iron like the Solia.

  • Hair Repair
    like most of the other tips here mentioned, its best to use a product like the biosilk silk serum, but to add to your hairs health you can leave your conditioner in for about 10 minutes while your in the bath tub/ shower (just leave it in while you shave and stuff and rinse your conditioner out last). this really helped repair my hair.
