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.
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.
Corlisse Flat iron with temperature of 350-356 degrees
Corlisse Titanium Flat iron

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

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.
