Sedu flat iron, flat iron comb and heat protectant
This is my first time straightening my hair since I've been natural, actually ever, that I've been able to get decent results. And by decent, I mean results good enough to walk out of the house without feeling self-conscious.
I would like to say that I had thoroughly prepared to straighten my hair by deep conditioning and doing a protein treatment prior to busting out the flat iron but the urge hit me at the last minute so I just went for it. My hair was recently washed, clarified and moisturized so I did not start off all bad and I made sure to spray each section with Tresemme Thermal Creations heat protectant prior to flat ironing.
My hair was already stretched so there was no need to blow dry. After I detangled each section I used my Croc Iron Comb to chase the flat iron to ensure the sections were as straight as possible. I only wanted to pass the flat iron once so I set the temperature on the iron to 400 degrees.
Here's the finished look! The first picture of my hair straight is after I had gone outside so it did get a little poofy. After the poof I decided to try my Caruso Steam Rollers for the first time to give my hair a little for life. I'm happy with the results and I look forward to surprising my friends who have not seen me with straight hair in over a year.
Have you straightened your hair lately? Were you happy with the results?
