Exactly how do you go about...????

Flat-ironing?


I have a Sedu, and I've attempted to use it twice, but everytime I have started on one section of hair I am unhappy with the result and just toss it aside. This is pretty frustrating because I feel I'll never be able to get it like the hairdresser I went to....

The problem is last time I went the shampoo girl went balistic with the shampoo...she must have used the entire bottle on my hair, and she decided to rinse and repeat (grrr). Then she rubbed and rubbed my hair with the towel. When I asked her to just pat my hair with the towel, she sorta did some pat/rub thing. Then when I finally get it straightened it got completely fried (well it sounded and smelled like it!) and it was completley tangled up after. I decided to leave it straight for a week, since it was paid for...but I really wanted to wash it out as soon as I got home!

One time she straightened my hair and I had no idea what she did, but it was absolutely gorgeous and silky feeling... and I just can't do that on my own!! I saw a routine somewhere but I have no idea where it is now. Could someone give me their routine (perferably if you have 3c curls like mine)... I think maybe I should eliminate a heat protectant so it won't sizzle... I'm not planning on straightening anytime soon (especially after that experience...) I really only want to do it once in a while just to see what it looks like, and for a little break from washing/detangling...etc


I'll probably straighten in December, but yes everything is appreciated...like whether you wash the night before or a couple of hours before, whether you use a heat protectant, do a deep conditioning treatment, do a hot oil treatment, for about how long etc etc... Thanks!

Mostly 3c and lovin' my curls

This is not a fashion trend, it's not a statement, it's pride for who we are and what we look like. And that is where our true beauty shines.

I always wash my hair first. Then flat iron the night before school without heat protectant. I just don't like heat protectant. And the next day I would touch up if I needed to, use some sort of oil or leave in conditioner and brush it out.
3b-3c CG
Do you know if doing a hot oil/deep conditioning treatment helps as well? My biggest problem is my hair looks so stiff when I do it, but when my hairdresser used to do it ... it was very movable and shiny. So I really want to know what helps with shine and mobility.

If you're 3c, then you really need a heat protectant. I don't really straighten often, but when I do, I always deep condition the night before, rinse, apply a heat protectant, blow dry, then flat iron. I think the biggest tip I got from my hair dresser was to keep the iron moving! Don't let it set against your hair like you're "pressing" it. That makes it stiff and poofy-looking, not to mention slightly fried. Keep it moving quick.
I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.

Used to be CG, now I'm not. Using Suave Aloe & Waterlily shampoo & condish, JoiWhip, BRHG, Suave Aloe gel, Aussie Tizz No Frizz, and anything else that looks good!
