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.

That's what I do. I decided to flat iron my hair, so I made sure my hair was clean by doing a bentonite clay treatment and deep conditioning. Then I detangled, added my leave-in and heat protectant before twisting my hair to dry overnight. The flat iron is heating up now

Default Changed hair texture

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.
