    I always recommend biosilk, it is great for frizz, and it's light enough not to way your hair down. Also, make sure you are using a good shampoo and conditioner, like Nexxus Therappe and Humectress, it will calm your hair down :)

        oh.. i have the same problem... just yesterday my hairstylist introduced me to this amazing moroccan oil.. its fabulous.. I wonder if it would work in mexico?? I ordered it off amazon.. for much cheaper.. its normally 40$ and I got it for 22$. it made my hair so smooth and soft.. Its really thick, but dont worry it doesnt make your hair oily at all.

            There is whole process to keep hair straight. I will recommend you to use Rusk shampoo, conditioner for flat iron and then special spray while straightening. (Rusk for flat iron, yellow products). Spray is really strong and is covering your hair with the soy protection layer. I don't recommend biosilk - to much of softening factor. Product has to cover your hair, keep it dry (not oily) and protect from humidity to enter. If you won't find Rusk products, try Chi or other marks.

            :)

              I've heard of moroccan oil. It suppose to be really good. I had no idea that Amazon sold it for cheap. I'm going to check it out :) Thanks

                I have a suggestion, but its a little more permanent.
                I have crazy curly hair thats really coarse, and last time I went to mexico it was a complete nightmare.
                Im going to get the Japanese hair straightening.
                I've done it before and it's amazing for me!
                I'm going to do it before I go for my wedding.

                But if anyone considers it.. I've had a couple of different systems that i've tried and only One was good
                I wish I could give you the actual brands that I've tried. I only know that one was a japanese system, and one was an italian system.. and the japanese one was far more amazing.

                  MY HAIR IS NATURALLY CURLY AND GETS EXTREMELY FRIZZY IN HUMIDITY BUT FOR SOME REASON IN MEXICO IT NEVER DOES. I HAVE BEEN TO MEXICO PLENTY TIMES SINCE I HAVE FAMILY THERE AND I HAVE BEEN OK BUT TRY USING GARNIER FRUCTIS SLICK AND SHINE CREAM... IT MAKES MY HAIR SMOOTH AND FRIZZ FREE
