Hair Diaries: Flat Ironing My Hair

This is a record for me on how I straighten my hair.  I only straighten my hair once or twice a month and when I do, I like for it to look smooth.  I have tried many different methods; but this one is the only one that worked very well. I am making sure I record this so I specifically know what I did to make my hair look and and feel the way I want it to when it’s straightened.

Getting started

Cleanse and Condition

Hair is in 4 sections clipped (two sections on each side)

Cleanse hair in the shower

WEN Gardenia and Green Tea

As I am Co-wash Conditioning Cleanser

I did a first cleanse with Wen and a second cleanse  with As I am

Gentle detangle with Quidad detangler comb

Gently run the Denman 9 row brush through each section under running water in the shower.

I do not dry my hair with a towel I gently put it back in the four sections with plastic clips.

Before blow dry prep

Two dime size amounts  Cleansing Conditioner and Fig Styling Creme of the on each section.

Wen Gardenia and Green Tea Cleansing Conditioner ( Can be used as a leave in conditioner.)

WEN Fig Styling Creme

Carol’s Daughter Chocolat Smoothing blow dry cream

Add Monoi Tiki Tahiti Tiare oil

Blow dry with T3 Blow Dryer with nozzle attachment on low and bursts of cool.

Take small sections  and use a wide tooth comb and T3 Brushes for blow drying.

After blowing drying each section put a dime amount of the Monoi oil on each section for moisturization.

Flat iron

Corlisse Flat iron with temperature of 350-356 degrees

Corlisse Titanium Flat iron

Take small sections of hair

Add a small amount of Ojon Damage Reverse Hair Serum to each section before flat ironing.

Ojon Damage Reverse

Make sure to run through gently the wide tooth comb or  bone come and  T3 brush through hair while running the flat iron through for smoothness. With this method I only have to go through my hair once with the flat iron.

    Hey do you still flat iron? I haven’t flat ironed in 3 years! I stretch my hair with Curlformers. As a matter of fact I think I’m going to do them on my next wash :-)

    • JTWisdom

      Yes, but not as much. Maybe every three months or more. Wow, 3 years that’s amazing! I haven’t tried Curlformers? Are they expensive and are they easy to use?

      I use very low heat when I do flat iron. I can tell my hair is much stronger since I don’t use heat often.

        they are kind of pricey. I won a starter set from Curly Nikki and then I purchased more packages. They aren’t too difficult to put in. You just have to make sure you don’t try to put too much hair in one curlformer

    Wasn’t sure where to post this but since it has something to do with hair I guess this is the best place. I underwent a treatment about 8 to 9 mos. ago and took a lot of medicine. The medicine was pretty harsh, left me tired, a little cranky at times, very emotional and rashes. I noticed near the end of the treatment I was having a lot of hair breakage but I did not pay much attention to it. However, when the weather turned cold and the treatment was over, I noticed the loss of hair.

    The first thing I did I laid hands on my head and start confessing the Word. One night when I was working with JT Wisdom I mentioned my hair to her. She told me about Thirsty Roots. She gave me details about the product and how she had tried it and really liked it. As soon as I got home I went to the site watched the video and ordered the product. I did not give JT Wisdom a chance to give me a sample. :)

    I believe I have been using it for about a month maybe two. My hair is thicker now new growth is forming. Praise God. My natural hair is restored. I said to JT Wisdom last night look at my hair I have new growth.

    I thank God for JT Wisdom and her knowledge on several products and topics. Also I thank her and her husband for praying for me everyday. JT Wisdom thank you for being my “bud” -).

      Awesome testimony Rose! Thank you for sharing on Bubbling With Elegance and Grace. Praying over yourself and confessing the word sets it all in motion. I found out about Thirsty Roots from Michelle Radiant Brown Beauty. I saw the benefits on their site and had to order it. When you said you were seeing thinning after taking the medication the first product that I thought of was Thirsty Roots Apricot castor oil. You are right that you didn’t give me a chance to give you a sample before you already ordered it but that was okay. You are experiencing growth after using the product a month or two and I believe it will get even more thicker the longer you are using it. Treat yourself to a scalp massage with the castor oil at least once a week or more if you have time.
      God continually shows me and my hubby how to research products and find healthier alternatives for hair and skincare.
      Family pray for each other every day so that’s what we do. Hubby and I are confessing everyday to Father God that you will never take that medication again In Jesus Name.
      Hubby and I thank God for you Rose, you are a true bud and family.
      Cute picture!
      I will be doing a video and blog post on Thirsty Roots Apricot Castor Oil so stay tuned.
