Straight Hair :-D



So I finally decided to stop being lazy and do something other than my everyday bun.I straigten my hair about once a month in the fall and winter and pretty much never in the warmer months.Since I use alot of conditioner and oil in my hair through out the week  I washed my hair with Neutrogena Anti Residue Formula Shampoo and followed that with my usual Biolage Smoothing Shampoo. After that I conditioned with Biolage Conditioning Balm. Since I was short on time I only conditioned while I showered. I have always loved the Biolage products and my hair always seems to come out better when I use their products. Also, the less products you use when pressing your hair, the better it will turn out. After shampooing and contioning all  I use is a heat protectant.


Products:
Biolage Smoothing Shampoo, Neutrogena Anti Residue Shanpoo, Biolage conditioning Balm

Hair after being shampooed and conditioned (No Product):


After shampoooing and conditioning i apply a quater sized amount of Chi Silk Infusion through out my hair then begin blowdrying my hai starting in the back with my Conair Pro Silver Bird Hair Dryer. I do one inch sections at a time. The blow dry is very important, if you blow out has no movement and is stiff your flat ironed hair also will be. I intended on buying a salon quality blow dryer until i asked my hair dresser what blow dryer she said she uses this one. This blowdryer only cost 29.99 and gets my hair straigter than any blowdryer I have ever used, I use it with the comb attachment. After Blowdrying ,I flat iron in very small sections using my Generic Value Plus Ceramic Flat Iron and the comb chase method. This flat iron only cost 59.99 and works as good as or better than my Chi flat iron.It gets my hair straight and shiny in one pass. I also like it because you can adjust the heat. My hair seems to be pretty heat resistant so I usually flat iron on the hightest setting, adn have not seen any negative affects of doing so. I use the Jilbere Vented Straightening/Cutting Comb for the comb chase method.

Love it! Thanks for pointing out that numerous and expensive products and tools aren't necessary for perfect results.

I have that exact flat iron. I'm still working on the blowdrying thing. I cannot get my hair straight and I think the blowdrying is the issue. Great post.

@Danielle87 Thanks :) I couldnt wait til my hair got passed shoulder lenght lol now I just want it longer.Yours will def get there and I love you blog

@Hair2Toe Beauty Thank youuu and yes I was pretty excited to find less expensive things that work for me

@Kayla thanks and do you like the flat iron? and how do you blowdry, if you dont use a comb attachment try trying that

Kayla said...

I really do like the flat iron.

As far as my blowdrying I've unsuccessfully tried different brush and blowdry techniques because

1)the comb attachment on my dryer is horrible
2)I can't really maneuver that style of dryer easily

I think I'm switching to a hatchet style dryer with a comb for ease.

Tierra said...

yea maybe a different blowdyer would help, it took me a while to find one i like

Had to come back and comment lol

The blow dry is where I messed up. I blow dried in huge chunks and used a Denman instead of the comb attachment. Thanks for the tips!

Tierra said...

Welcome! Yea the blow dry is really important, thats where I used to mess up. Doing smaller sections should defiantely help!

Before reading this, I WAS CONVINCED you got your hair straightened at a salon. Absolutely beautiful!!!

After reading this, I know it's definitely my blow dryer. I have a cheapie from Wal-Mart that doesn't really get hot and is hard to find a comb attachment for. I have tried finger combing with it, using my Denman....it's just a mess, lol. I use the same products, so I'm excited to try your technique for my March length check.

Tierra said...

Thanks!!! I think the comb attachment helps to get it really straight!But good luck I hope it works for you!
