TCB Bone Strait Conditioner and Blow Dry Lotion

Hot

TCB Bone Strait Conditioner and Blow Dry Lotion

The Bone Strait lotion by TCB, serves as both a conditioner and a blow dry lotion. It comes in a red 200ml bottle and can be purchased at your local clicks or dischem. The packaging of the product states that the product adds moisture and sheen as well as it detangles, softens and smooths. The part that im most interested in is that it claims to keep hair smooth(since i have a head full of hair that would make Mufasa-from the Lion King feel ashamed). Furthermore, Bone Strait is a thermally activated conditioner and blow dry lotion that gives hair more shine and manageability and besides TCB products being targeted for women of 'colour' i think that this product can be used on all types of hair. There are various applications in which one can use this product namely for curly and natural styles, weekly conditioning(a mask), before blowing hair and for damaged hair- obviously when using it as a mask or treatment one has to use much more of the product than when using it as a blow dry lotion where one uses a little amount.

I have been using this product for over 20years. It is currently the cheapest blow dry lotion on the market. It is very effective in getting sleeker straighted hair without the frizz even for set styles before curling hair. Apply sparingly.

This product is great for softening hair and reducing frizz after blow drying. Don't use too much of this product, as it can leave a white residue that does not look cute. If used properly and regularly, you will definitely see a difference. I find that my hair is sleeker when I use this product than when I don't. I apply it to my damp hair, before blow drying.

Bone Straight Conditioner and Blow dry lotion effectively reduces frizz and leaves your hair sleek after blow drying or even after rolling.

The trick is to not apply too much onto your hair or else it comes out really oily. It's not an easy to find product as most stores don't stock this anymore.

So if you are able to find it, I recommend that you buy it and try it.

I grew up using Bone straight on my hair, this product has come along as a trusted blow dry lotion for 30 years. I have 3 trusted products I use when blow drying my hair.

First I comb some Bone straight into my hair followed by a few sprays of the Heat Defence Styling Spray. I then roughly blow dry until about 80% dry. I add some argan oil to my tips and then finish off with a blow dry brush.

My hair has never looked better and I have barely any visible heat damage (and I blow dry my hair every 2-3 days).

Is this product available anywhere? The Asian guy at a local beauty supply store said it's been off of the market for over 10 years.

My hairdresser used and recommended this for my hair many years ago. At first, I loved it and could find that it protects my hair and keeps its straight but, some time later I realized that it was actually making my hair super sticky and left an unpleasant residue behind.
My hair soon became oily and not very good to look at some I stopped using it.

Growing up I used this product alot it was great because it was cheap and did the job.
Al like you need is small amount to rub in to wet hair . This assists in blow drying your hair straighter and helps keep out the frizz.
It's also a good conditioning lotion for hair and helps make hair shinier

TCB Bone Strait Conditioner & Blow Dry Lotion is reasonably priced. It is a thermally activated conditioner and blow dry lotion that is supposed to give hair more shine and manageability with each use. It is supposed to allow hair to be blown straighter and curled tighter, rolled easier and bounce higher. However, this product works well as a conditioning treatment but sucks as a blow dry lotion. When I tried using it as a blow drying lotion, it left my hair weigh down and limp. I had to wash it out. Now I only use it as a conditioning treatment.

I discovered this product ages ago and have used many bottles over the years. I usually used it as a conditioner (it's a great detangler), so would rinse it off. When my curls started to frizz, I'd put a small dollop (about a ring nail size) on my hands and apply it to my curls, giving them definition again.
As with all products, I am sure it can become heavy if you use too much of it, which I suspect is what happens when you use it for blow drying. As someone who never blow-dries their hair, I found this a perfect leave-in product.
I would recommend this product to Caucasian ladies as well as those "of colour" (sic) as it seems to work for all hair types.
It does smell slightly like eggs, but it does the job and is very cheap, so even if you don't like it, you won't be wasting a lot of money! :)

this is an excellent product, works well even with curly hair, when my hair dries up the curls look shinny and healthy, and when I straighten my hair my hair is then pin straight, at such a low price I would definitely recommend this product.

This is a two-in-one conditioner and blow dry lotion. I've used it in the past but never liked it much. It's very sticky and weighed down my hair. It works okay as a conditioner but not as a leave-in. It's also very cheap.

I applied this before blow drying my hair. It was horrible! It caused my hair to feel heavy and it made my hands, hairbrush & hair sticky! I had to wash my hair again. But then I somehow discovered that it works AMAZING as a conditioner! It's a little hard to rinse off, but results are soft sleeky hair. I think it's a really great detangler.

I have fine curly hair, now finding a produt that promises to straighten and protect my hair was a great find but this is not what I have experienced. The feel of the product is ok but once applied to the hair it causes it to bbecome sticky and difficult to comb or brush through which made blow-drying a painful nightmare. Though very cost effective, I stopped using it after the first try.
