DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a professional hairstylist!! I only know what works best for MY HAIR and I’m just sharing tips :-)
Yesterday, I got my ends trimmed and decided to wear my hair straight (the last time I wore it straight was in early June.) I didn’t trim my ends lol but I did flat iron and style my hair.
To achieve this look, I parted my hair on the side and sectioned my hair off and when I applied the flat iron, I used a fine tooth comb to guide the iron down my hair because since i’m natural, I wanted to make sure that I got it as straight as possible. As I was flat ironing, I made sure to bump my ends so that my hair was full of body and bounce and I feathered and added a flip to the right side.
At night I pin curl my hair and tie it with a silk scarf so that it lasts for at least a week.
To achieve this look with my particular type of natural curly hair, I used these products….
When styling with my CHI flat iron, I used CHI’s “Iron Guard” (using Spritz is a big NO-NO) because it is a thermal styling protectant and prevents heat damage and dryness (a MUST for natural hair.) Since i’m managing 2 different hair textures because of transitioning, I also used Dr. Miracle’s “Intensive Spot Serum” because it helps to conditions, strengthens and moisturizes my weakening relaxed ends.
Lastly, after I finished flat ironing and styling, I used Loreal Homme Definition Wax to lay my edges down and the Biosilk “Silk Therapy” as a shine serum because it is a reconstructing treatment, bonds/strenthens the hair inside and out and is a lightweight shine formula.
SideNote: I really love CHI products and the fact that I’m currently touring with them for their hair show is Sureal!!!
