I'm finally going to straighten my hair. I was supposed to straighten it Thanksgiving a cold took me down.
Tonight I shampooed and doing an overnight DC.
Tomorrow, I will rinse and DC again for a few hours. I will do an oil rinse, air dry, apply my leave-in and twist it up. I might do Bantu knots.
If I get all of that done early enough I will blow dry with my Rev-Air. If not I will wait until Saturday morning.
Saturday morning I will blow dry if I didn't get it done Friday night. I will then flat iron between 300 and 325.
Either Saturday or Sunday I will use my SplitEnder and take care of these ends.
Finished my hair It went much faster than I expected.
After applying my leave-in, I let my hair air dry while I ate dinner. I put my hair in sections and before blowing dry I used just a little of the Mane Choice Thermal spray. I sprayed it in my hand so I didn't use too much.
I blow dried with my RevAir on tension 6 and heat setting 2. Because I air dried, it went pretty fast. Since I finished early I figured I would flat iron tonight. I used a little of the Mane
Choice Thermal Serum on each section. I flat ironed on 325.
I will still trim my ends tomorrow so I put my hair in flat twist and bantu knotted the ends. I doubt it will keep any curl though
I'm gonna wash and DC my weekend twists for a twist out on Monday and Tuesday.
DD has been rocking straight hair since Nov. 30th...that childs hair can hold a flat iron job like no one else. And she has dance class every day except Sat & Sun! I moisturize her hair and scritch her scalp and pin it every other night. Her roots havent reverted at all yet! I'm only tired of seeing her flinging her mane all over the place. Lol!

I've been playing with flexirods this week. I washed my hair and set my hair with eight flexirods, using the "horseshoe method" My hair was still damp the next morning; then went for a massage and couldn't say no to the esthitician (how do you spell facial lady???) massaging my scalp. Soooo yesterday, i said, ok no need to wash hair again, just reset on dry/damp hair.
I used Kreyol Essence hair care line and mouse (I can't think of the name right now) for hold and air-dried overnight.
My thick hair laughed at these flexi rods. But I'm waiting for a hooded dryer to come in the mail so I will try again
It doesn't look bad, just not like a youtube video LOL
I don't think my density can take just 10 rods. I'm going to need a whole head of them for it to come out nice and sleek I think.
