Hi everyone,

I plan on straightening my hair this weekend for a change. I'm almost 4 months post relaxer. I want to know are there any precautions I should take before I use heat on my hair. I've been heat free for 3 months, and now I want to switch it up for the next 10 days. I always use roller sets to air dry, then I blow my hair out lightly and that's it. I also wrap my hair nightly. This time I may flat iron my roots on 230 degrees in small sections so I can keep the style for a full 2 weeks. I also plan on doing a protein/moisture treatment.
Products I'm currently :
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia (Vanilla Latte scent)
  • Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
  • Certified Organic Coconut Oil
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Heavenly Jojoba Oil
Staple Deep Conditioners: Giovanni Direct Leave-in and Karen's Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Hair Mask
