Frizzy ends after flat ironing?

Like Tree5Likes

My routine is similar to Elle's after much experimentation. I've used oil before but didn't like the results. It was similar to the results I get when I use too much product - frizziness and overall dullness.

I use watery leave-ins like Infusium 23 or Biolage Daily Leave-in tonic and a little Redken Smooth down right before I iron. I'm too damn lazy to braid, twist, or roller set first but I know it would lessen the time it takes to flat iron my hair so I will next time.

Okay so here is an update! I co-washed and detangled then put some leave in conditioner & heat protectant in left my hair in 5 big twists overnight. The next day I took the twists down and flat ironed my results came out soooo gooooddd! I can run my hands through it I am shocked at how great it feels. So I will get rid of the blow dryer from now on and also save the castor oil for when my hair is curly.

I was looking all over the internet to find an answer to my question, and maybe someone knows (please help)

About 2-3 weeks ago I straightened my hair for the first time in years, and it was fine. And then when I washed my hair my hair texture changed. Normally my hair is quite fine and easily manipulated, and it often goes quite straight after manipulating it. But once I'd washed my hair my hair texture had become quite thick and dry.

There is still a curl pattern so I don't think it's heat damage, but I am still quite worried because no matter what I do my hair won't go back to normal.

This suggestion was a great help to me, I took the extra effort to smooth my ends while blow drying and my flat ironing came out much better THANK YOU SO MUCH
It may be a sign to that you need to have a trim.
Having type 4 myself, I have avoid using "unnecessary heat" to prevent heat damage, and dry hair.
So I will stretch my hair and then comb and chase my hair.
My favourite method to stretch my hair is using roller sets (loads of youtube tutorials on how to roller set), and then applying a good quality flat iron to it using the comb and chase method. It enables to you to use a lower heat temperature, and helps maintain the health of your hair.
Also use a heat protector when moisturising, to protect your ends and the strands, avoid using anything with alcohol in it. In essence it will dry your hair out, so I opt for using a serum instead (ic Fantasia Hair Polisher)
