Relaxed African American Hair, Thin Hair (4a/4b)
For Shampoo and Conditioner (humecto conditioner that you leave on
for 15 minutes), I use Kera Care. Our hair needs moisture and
having a good moisurizing shampoo helps with your results. Other
good ones are Design Essentials or Mizani. A good shampoo and
conditioner makes a world of difference, I found out that through
trial and error. Blow dry using either a brush for more volume, or
comb/pic for the flat look. A good blow dryer helps out as well.
Make sure you put something on it before you blow dry, like Aveda
blow dry spray or Kera Care syrum (just a quarter size) to prevent
split ends and leave your hair healthy. For the temperature
setting, put it on 360 IF you want it to be straight. If you are
worried about heat, put it on a lower setting but it wont have the
same results as 360. If your hair is more course, you may need to
push it closer to 400. Be sure to put some serum on your ends!!!
Flat Irons are known to chew the ends up. When youre done, I like
the combination of using Biosilk Serum and Deep Brilliance Serum.
With those two, your hair wont look dry and itll come out soft
and silky. And the next day, keep putting a a few dabs of moisture
(nothing watered down) because with that heat, it technically dries
your hair (my hair is usually dry anyway) a bit but if treated with
moisture, your hair should be fine.
