I am in NO WAY a hair expert! I only know what works for me. I have naturally curly hair and it wasn’t until recently that I really feel like really I learned how to get it straight and smooth. I attribute most of this to finding the right products! (Thank you Tiffani at Voila Salon!) I’ve been using these for about a year now and I’m really happy with how smooth it makes my hair, how easy it is to straighten it, and how long a blowout lasts. Tip-I also use a shower cap in between blow outs. I wash my hair 1 once a week…EKKKK.. I know.. but I promise my hair doesn’t get greasy! I’ve linked all the products and tools I use in each step as well as at the bottom of the post. Hope this is somewhat helpful!
Step 1: Shampoo hair. Rinse. Wash again. The first wash removes oils and the second cleans the hair.
Step 3: Spray hair with Pureology Color Fanatic Hair Treatment spray.
Step 4: Apply Pureology Smooth Perfection Intense Smoothing Cream. Brush with wide tooth comb again to get product from root to tip.
Step 5: Blow dry. I am OBSESSED with my new blowdryer/hair brush in one! (and it’s currently on sale!) It has made drying my hair so easy! What use to take 30-45 minutes now takes about 15-20. I highly recommend it! But if you use a regular hair dryer than I highly recommend using a large barrel brush. If you have shorter hair I would get a smaller barrel, depending on length. There are so many methods/techniques on this and I’ll share mine in another post. But for now-youtube! There are so many great videos.
Lastly, every few weeks I apply coconut oil to my hair and leave it on for a minimum of 2 hours, but usually overnight. I apply enough to complete coat my hair but I avoid saturating the roots. Then I wash as as usual the next day.
Again, I just want to say, I have no idea what I’m really doing! I just know what works for me. I’ve tried SO MANY products and these are the only ones I have stuck with and truly swear by.
