As promised, here is my hair care regime when my hair is straight!
- how often I straighten my hair
I actually do not straighten my hair myself. My hairstylist, whom I got to when I go home and about once a month when I am home, straightens my hair. She’s been doing my hair for over two years now, and she’s been doing my mom’s hair for probably like 10 years. My hairstylist is the only person who straightens my hair.
- why I straighten it
I think straight hair is cute. As my hair has gotten healthier, I love how it looks straight. I also love how easy it to take care of.
I only get trims with straight hair because my hairstylist trims my hair. I love getting my hair trimmed straight because it makes it look really nice straight but when it’s curly it looks just as fabulous. My ends always look super clean, no matter if they’re curly or straight.
- preservation of curls
To preserve my straight hair, I roll my hair. I started using flexi rods, which I really love. They last all day!!! Last time I got my hair straight, it ended up raining and the humidity made it a little curly. So what I do is use Camille Rose’s Curlaide (just a small bit, it doesn’t make my hair turn curly, but it does make my sisters turn curly so I’m not sure about that for everyone). I then wrap my hair, to make it stay straight. But without any rain incidents I just keep rolling it. And I wear a satin bonnet.
- products to use
- flexi rods- I use the smaller diameter red ones.
- Silk by design essentials- this is my go to product. Silk penetrates the hair shaft and doesn’t leave your hair too oily. I just use a little
- Curlaide by camille rose- like I said, if my hair happens to get a little curly, I use curlaide to make it straighter
- Satin bonnet- I love using my satin bonnet, scarves and wraps. It keeps my hair moisturized
I never put heat on my hair- I’m not a professional and I want to keep my hair healthy! My fabulous hairstylist is the one who does my hair! I think it’s great to have her do it- I’ve never suffered from heat damage or breakage that was her fault (the eczema I have was what caused all of my hair issues).
Let me know if you have any questions! I hope this helps!!
