Ingredients: The ingredients seem well enough, not fantastic, not bad. Theres a few chemicals that can be expected, but it also contains several ingredients that are good for the hair.Results: If you think that this is going to magically save your hair from the effects of a hot iron, your wrong. In fact, ive stopped using any hot tools completely and my hair length and health has improved drastically. But if you want some protection thrown in there when you use hot tools once in a while, this is a great choice and i highly reccommend it. Just keep in mind that if you hot iron your hair everyday, even with deep conditioners, and protective products such as these, your still not going to fully protect your hair from the damage.Alternatives: This may sound crazy, but instead of flat ironing my course, curly hair, i use two bandanas. i tie the first one around my forhead and tie it behind my ears then pull it back slightly. then i take my ponytail put it up on top of my head, and tie another bandana the opposite way and tie it by my forehead. I then bobby pin them so it doesnt fall off while i sleep. i do this after i wash my hair, it drys naturally, and its frizz free and smooth when i take it off. (make sure its dry though) then you can preceed to style your hair. its very easy if you wash your hair at night.
UNBELIEVABLE! My hair is transformed. And the smell is nice, too
If you could only see my hair. If you could feel it. If you had seen my hair without Hot Sauce.Okay, the low-down: I have very curly (think ethnic, curly, dry, coarse hair) long hair (past shoulders, but not uberlong). My thyroid disease makes it like STRAW in places, nasty and frizzy and rough.I’ve used some good products to try and give me silky control–Pantene anti-frizz is okay. BioSilk is lovely. And I thought I’d use BioSilk forever–love the scent, love the result.Then I bought a flat-iron (12/07) from FHI and I bought Hot Sauce to go with it. I used it and though, “Oh, huge waste of money” on the product. It just didn’t do what BioSilk did.Then I decided to do something: Use twice as much as I had used. (The directions say use a small amount, so I used about the size of a nickel in my palm, which is what I’d use of BioSilk.) I used about a quarter’s size or so. I was afraid it’d weigh my hair down and make it look oily or dirty.TOTALLY DIFFERENT UNIVERSE.I simply had not used the right amount for my very dry, very curly, very crazy hair. With a larger amount, I didn’t even NEED the flatiron. No kidding. No styling lotion (I used to use Paul Mitchell). No hair spray. I just use the Hot Sauce, my 3 inch ceramic-ionic styling brush, and my ionic blow-dryer (not even a high-end model, a cheapie import). And my hair is silk. Pure silk. It’s straight, except for a nice wave at the bottom part where there is some layering. It’s smooth. It moves. It shines. I can’t stop touching it.And my hairstyle lasted five days without frizzing or recurling. I just added a bit of BioSilk to my hair to add some smoothness and that lovely scent a couple days in. A retouching.I expect that come the humid months in Miami (it’s winter now), that I’ll need something for more control against the damages of summer moisture to curly hair, but for now, I can say this stuff rocks like nobody’s business.My hair is BEEEEEEEEEEEEEYOTIFUL. And my husband loves how it feels. And I love how fast I can dry it without all the steps and styling products and flatironing it to get “silky”.Big, big, thumbs up to FHI Hot Sauce. Worth the price tag.Mir<–with silky hair at last
HOT!!! Is what describes the FHI Hot Sauce. When my hair returned after chemotherapy I decided not to chemically relax the hair to straighten. I am Afro-American and my virgin hair returned very curly but I wanted to straighten without chemicals to change it up a bit. I went online and reviewed the FHI Hotsauce as an addition to the flat iron process. I purchased the product which came from Folica through […] and I received it quickly. A little expensive but worth it for me. I put it on before I blow dry and a very small amount on each section I flat iron and my hair is left so soft and silky. In addition, I wrap my hair every night. Thanks FHI Hot Sauce, […] and Folica
I’ve only tried this once so I the verdict is still out, but honestly I’m not quite sure what all the hype is about. Caveat: my hair is super super dry and damaged and I am in the process of repair (hence buying this product). However, the bottle was teeny tine (1.7 fluid ounces idk why I expected it to be bigger) and the spray pump did not work. The product is a relatively thick (like a lotion) so I’m not sure why there is a spray to begin with– the straw feeding into the bottle also only goes to the neck so I was just really confused and annoyed by the damn thing. I also did not use it to blowdry my hair (which is the only use listed on the bottle) because I airdryed. I applied to my damp hair, then moisturized and sealed when dry and flat ironed.
Not for me
My hair tends to be very dry and prone to breakage. So, I was looking for a product that would condition, strenghten and protect my hair from heat damage. Which is what this product claims to do. I used this product for two months, however my hair remained very dry and the amount of breakage did not improve. Just not for me!
Inexpensive product that made my hair very smooth for flat ironing, I highly recommend, loved it. I am going to order it again. If you order, buy two, it’s not very big and you certainly don’t want to run out since you will be instantly hooked.
great moisturizing lotion
This cream worked great with my fhi iron, the perfect match, I could tell it penetrated my hair instead of laying on top of it, a recommended product if you are going to flat iron your hair, you’ll love the look and feel.
