I’m not particular when it comes to flat irons, but I use Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum before applying the heat. A couple of drops smoothed onto each section before running the flat iron through it and I’m good.
Soooooo……CLEARLY I’ve been living under a rock!!!! Lol used coconut oil on my hair for the 1st time today annnddd…..I. LOVE. IT!!!! omg! It’s like crack! Lol my hair is soft AND shiny! Thanks for all the suggestions guys :-) MUAH!
I think it’s just gotten to the point where it knows how to handle the heat without loosing the curl pattern. Probably because I don’t use much heat and when I do, it’s still very little. When I flat iron, it tends to lasts for at least 2-3 weeks, so that’s why I say it’s trained. Kinda like when you have difficulty initially wrapping your hair, but then once it’s been done alot, it can basically wrap itself. LOL ;-D
ur pic of your 3 yr anniversary gave me hope ! ur straight hair is so long, pretty, and full... I WANT THAT! lol im just hit a yr natural.. any advice for me? and how did u get ur hair so straight ?
Be patient and use as little heat as possible. Keep your ends clipped also to prevent breakage. That was just a regular flat ironing, nothing special. My hair is trained to handle the heat when I wear it straight. Thanks Hun!
I shampoo’d my hair and then ran some Kinky Curly Knot Today mixed with coconut oil through it with my denman brush. That always does it trick for me. Then I put some KC Curly Custard and twisted it up. Will take pics in the morning and post.
These hair ties are out of this world. They are Great when your hair is wet and you don’t want to put a lot of stress on your hair. They are even great when you have just pressed out your curls and want to pull your hair back, but don’t want the random bump in your hair. Now, I know what your thinking there is no way i’m going to get that back out of my natural curls. But just trust me I never pull out hair when i remove these and they come out easy. I found them at target but can probably be found at similar places like wall mart too.
