I like wearing my hair straight. That does not mean I do not like my curly hair, it just means I like wearing it straight as well. After two weeks of straight hair, I have washed it so that it is curly again now. But while it was straight I was often asked how I tamed my curly mane. So glad I got some inquiries.
My method of straightening is pretty much set in stone now. Here is what I do:
- Wash hair with Organix acai berry avocado shampoo and deep condition with Organix Moroccan argan oil intense moisturizing treatment.
- Blow dry hair straight. Use Carol’s Daughter Macadamia heat protection serum.
- Band hair to stretch it further.
- Flat iron/press using My Honey Child hair grease.
All together, the entire routine probably takes an hour. I can flat-iron it in about 35 minutes.
Once I straighten it, the question is then how to maintain it. This time around I decided to try something new. Enter Mizani Iron Curl. I had to dry this because for a while now I have been looking for a straightening styling product that you use on dry hair. By dry I mean not damp or wet.
You just take some of the Iron Curl, work it through your hair, and then press or run the flat-iron through. Voila! your already-straightened hair stays shiny and straight. The price for the Iron Curl is steep (like with most Mizani products), but well worth it. A little of this goes a long way and therefore, the container will last forever.
The humidity is low because the weather is cooler, so try something new for your straightening routine.
