Reader Question: Is There a Good Replacement for Frederic Fekkai Straight Away?

Awhile back, I wrote about the product that was so great, it hurt my heart when it was discontinued. I'm speaking, of course, about Frederic Fekkai Straight Away. (Click here for a recap.) Recently, my reader Annabel emailed me asking whether I'd ever found a replacement. "I can't find anything that works as well -- everything I've tried is too heavy and sticky," she lamented.

Good news, Annabel! While I'm still mourning the loss of my favorite hair product ever, I have found a couple great alternatives that get the job done more than adequately.

A few pumps are all that's needed to maintain straight, frizz-free locks throughout the course of a blowout.

Pantene, Pantene Pro-V, Pantene Pro-V NatureFusion, Pantene Pro-V NatureFusion Smoothing Creme, Pantene hair, Pantene Pro-V hair, hair, hair product, styling product, styling creme, styling creamPantene Pro-V NatureFusion Smoothing Creme ($5.99): If you're looking for a more budget-friendly option, this is the way to go. I use three pumps and smooth evenly throughout my hair, first concentrating on the ends and then moving up to the roots. It won't weigh locks down and doesn't feel greasy -- and frizz is at a minimum!

I hope this helps, Annabel. Good luck to everyone else who's as saddened as I am by the loss of the fabulous Frederic Fekkai Straight Away!
