Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide Smoother
Can It Stand The 450 Degree Power Of The Solia?
I just ordered my Solia Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron today and actually already own this redken smooth down product, the biosilk shampoo, conditioner, and silk therapy, not to mention I take 2500mcg of Biotin everyday. I am trying to restore the health of my hair after the 5 years of using a cheep conair flat iron and hot tools curling iron to straighten my THICK COARSE FRIZZY CURLY/KINKY and relatively dry hair. I seem to do a decent job, my hair looks and feels silky smooth and doesnt look or smell flat-ironed The combination I have going right now seems to be keeping my hair intact and healthy except for the resistant front where I have a lot of breakage :(I had all the dead ends cut off except for some in the front where it would just be too short. My goal is to grow my hair down to the middle of my back if not lower back (right now it is maybe an inch past the shoulders)Will this continue to protect my hair with my new straightener? I will most likely be using the 450 setting.Also any tips and tricks for getting my hair to grow healthy and fast (although i doubt one can speed up the growing process) It seems like my hair grows so slowly :(Oh and my hair has about 3-4 layers if that helps with stair-step like edges although now the ends just kinda blend inEvery once in a while I use dessert essence an organic line of shampoo and conditioner (maybe once ever 3 weeks) that does not have any alcohol in it and contains loads of shea butterIn the shower i comb my conditioner in by lathering the conditioner in my hair and then squirting some on the comb and running it through ends to roots and let it sit for about 5-8 minutes
