Probably some type of heat protectant.  I have only use the products from V05.  I liked it because it wasn't some heavy serum and it kept my hair nice and shiny.

All I use is my handy dandy tresemme heat tamer spray, it's like 5 bucks or less and it works like a dream. Trust me I've tried many things that cost more, but this is BY FAR the BEST. It will make your hair have this shiny from within look, not artificial. It's the bomb. It really protects. If you want to see what my hair looks like:

you can see it's got a real shine to it not artificial. This is because of the shampoo and use and my tresemme heat tamer before I use my iron. Use it on dry hair, comb or brush it through and then use the iron. You will love the stuff. That's all you need!

 <--- looks like this and it is perfect, comes out in a very fine mist that covers a lot of area. And the smell is also nice and light, not nauseating like some other things I've used such as beyond the zone turn up the heat spray, which is friggin oily might I add! Tresemme heat spray is NOT oily at all, it has no oils and it is alcohol FREE.

I also like the Tresemme heat spray. It's not greasy or sticky.

Chi Silk Infusion, I used to straighten my hair with my Sedu, and the Chi worked wonderful, didn't make hair oily, actually made my thin/damaged hair FULLER, and I still use it to this day even though I would never touch my hair with a flat iron again (I just use it before blow-drying to prevent damage)

Chi Silk Infusion is amazing stuff and its really made a difference to my hair. I also use Tresemme Heat Protectant when blowdrying/straightening my hair after using Silk Infusion.

I use Pro Naturals Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment with Heat Protector because it helps strengthen the hair that's prone to breakage, splitting or snapping off, gently smoothes the hair and form a protective mist on surface against heat damage, reduces friction from brushing and helps prevent further damage, leaves hair healthy, shiny and resilient and provides heat protection against electronic hair tools.   You Must use it after the straightening. This product has worked amazing for me, my hair looks great, soft and healthy. :D I totally recommend it.
