Having been blessed with hair that is neither straight nor curly, I spend more time than I care each week working my hair with a blow dryer and flat iron to make it presentable. So, anytime I find a product that makes this process a little easier, I get excited. And right now I’m excited about Onesta Smooth & Shine Thermal Straightening Crème.

I’m picky about the products I put in my hair—I’ll gladly pay extra for a quality product that’s free of parabens, sulfates and other nasty additives. Onesta’s products are right up my alley. Italian for “honesty,” Onesta has a policy of transparency when it comes to their products, and looking at the ingredients label on my straightening crème makes me happy. True to their motto, “free yourself of harmful chemicals,” Onesta’s products are free of sulfates, parabens, synthetic colors and dyes, propylene glycol, DEA, TEA and animal ingredients (although fragrance is the last ingredient listed). What I do see are natural ingredients such as organic extracts of green tea and milk thistle, which provide vitamins for my hair and protect it from sun damage, and rhatany root.

Onesta’s Smooth & Shine Straightening Crème has a lightweight feel that keeps flyaways in check without dragging the rest of my hair down. The crème also has a pleasant smell and adds a little extra shine to my hair, delivering a nice ego boost every time I look in the mirror.
