Wash day: Flat Ironed For A Change!

Sunday, August 13, 2017

I think it's safe to say that wash day was a success! 

Let me first start off by saying that I've missed my flat ironed hair. I have no issues with my air dried hair 95% of the time, but it's been months since "heat" has touched my strands and it definitely feels good!

My wash day began with a shampoo session with ORS Olive Oil Sulfate Free Shampoo and then I  deep conditioned for 30 mins with heat using Keracare Humecto Conditioner mixed with my favourite oil combo; Avocado oil, Coconut oil and Olive oil.

I air dried my hair with a little bit of Creme of Nature Argan Oil Buttermilk Leave-In and then I began to generously spray my hair and ends with my TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray.

I didn't blow dry my hair while it was damp, I just waited until my hair was completely air dried. I then began to section my hair off and flat iron with my 2" Sedu Flat Iron (max. 2 passes through my hair).
Here are my results below:

My hair felt soft, shiny, and smooth as predicted when using Keracare Humecto and Tresemme Keratin Heat Protection Spray. My hair was well behaved let me tell you! With the help of my deep conditioning session, I was able to flat iron my hair in less than 1 hour (approx. 45 mins) - no tangles!

I had a significant trim back in February 2017. My stylist, at the time, took off more than I asked of him and my hair was basically at or slightly above BSL (bra strap length). I was not happy nor did I even bother to take a photo - I was upset. Right now, I'm significantly passed BSL, at MBL but pretty much close to WL again. 

After that horrible experience, I just vowed to myself that I will not go back to my old stylist and just grow out my hair as quickly as possible. Moving forward, I plan on trimming little by little (1/4 - 1/2 and inch) with every relaxer rather than every 6 months.

Just had to share...
