Being natural doesn’t mean you can’t wear your hair silky straight every now and then. I mean it is your hair, AND your prerogative. What you need to be concerned about is how you make this transformation from big and curly to bouncy and straight. With the right method, and products, you can be worry and damaged hair free.
Blow Dry The Right Way
Before you apply any heat to your hair, it is important to apply a good leave in conditioner and heat protectant while it is still wet. The conditioner will give your hair added moisture, and the protectant spray will smooth out the cuticles. After applying, detangle and comb product through your hair. When detangling make sure to always start from tip to roots, this prevents breakage. Just a special tip, it is good to do all of this in sections. It helps you to be thorough, while giving your more control.
The Right Brush
With the right brush, you can get a better blow out. For voluminous hair use a round brush, as it gives you more control and tension, and keeps the roots lifted giving the hair body. If you are seeking a silky straight look, opt for a paddle brush, the offer less tension, creating flatter hair.
Use Hot Tools With Care
When using heated styling tools, be careful to not overdo it. Low heat, and less pressure is always best. If too much heat and pressure is used, you run the risk of relaxing your curls, therefore permanently modifying the texture (in an unhealthy way).
