Many of our curly community members want to know about ways to temporarily straighten their curls without damaging them. Don't get us wrong, we love embracing our curls, but ask any curly why she loves her hair and she'll tell you: versatility. Unlike our straight-haired friends, we have the option to rock our hair any way we like! But we want to ensure that your curls stay hydrated and healthy no matter what. The safest way to do this is to use protective products whenever you heat style.

Long-time NaturallyCurly curlfriend Taren Guy, tried out the Motions Straight Finish collection on her gorgeous head of curls. She was skeptical at the outset because she loves her curls and had never used a keratin product before. She was scared of loosening her curls permanently, and we know many of our community members feel the same way. Watch this video to see what Taren thought throughout the process, including the scariest part of all - flat ironing.

And find the answer to the question most of you want to know, "did the curls bounce back?"
