    The only product that helps me fight reversion is Sabino Moisture Block.

    So you mean using shampoo, conditioner, or just the serum?

    Just the serum with whatever other products I happen to use at the time. I have not tried any other products they might have.

    I used to blow dry my hair with Phytodéfrisant Botanical Straightening Balm, which gives good results but I haven't looked for it in a while. Using the Phyto and the Sabino together gave me straight hair for 10 days once, which for me was a record. But the Sabino is the more crucial ingredient, and works even when I use mediocre products.

    I have 4a/b thick and dense almost APL hair who wears my hair straight 100% of the time. I have managed to transition and rock my fully natural hair straight with minimal reversion with the following steps:

    1. Shampoo - Quidad Cleansing Oil
    2. Condition - Joico Intense Hydrator and Joico K-Pak
    3. Leave Ins - Aphogee Keratin Mist, Giovanni Direct Leave in, Morrocanoil treatment, Argan oil
    4. Blow dry & Flat iron
    5. Wrap hair at night and secure with satin scarf.

    I live in Texas with 70%-80% humidity and I make it work

    If & when I do straighten my hair I use a lite leave in and sabino moisture block serum on top/followed by low heat blow dry/flight ion and that keeps my hair straight for over a week..

    Happy Hair Growing!
