I went to the salon today to get my ends clipped I got a press and my hair feels and looks so feathery. It has a very light feel and look to it. It's quite hard to describe. It's straight but has volume almost poofy but it's straight. It moves when I move it just doesn't all settle back. At times it looks like a bunch of fly always. It doesn't look like the typical press style how can I change this
I'm sorry to say I think your hair might be badly damaged. Once when I used a flat iron what you describe happened to me. Try extreme moisturizing and let your hair alone as much as possible. My hair doesn't react well to protein but if you tolerate protein well, use a protein conditioner and then a very good deep conditioner.

Please post again and let us know if deep conditioning helped.
2/c-3a Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
Every day is a gift
It's not damaged at all. I did a protein treatment myself at home then a few days later got it professionally deep condition and trimmed. It has a flow to it, it just doesn't look like the typical pressed hair look. When the hair dresser flat iron my hair it was at the most set to 325. I was told may be it needs to be trained but I only apply hear when it's time for a trim about every 12-14 weeks. It is hard to describe almost like how hair looked in the 80s lol
Maybe your hair texture doesn't react like most people's when flat ironed or pressed (heating comb?). If I blowdry my hair straight, it comes out frizzy when I flat iron but if I flat iron without blowdrying straight, it looks nice. Everyone's hair is unique.

You may have a point there but, I guess my next question would be how can I combat it. I don't wear my hair out and straight often but when I do I would like it to be less feathery
I'm guessing your hair is fine since protein worked, and your hair is probably baby fine or kinky. I don't know the answer but maybe someone on NC may have the same type of hair. I wonder if old-fashioned roller setting and sitting under a hood dryer would give you the results you want. That seems to work on all hair types.
