  • Hair Repair
    like most of the other tips here mentioned, its best to use a product like the biosilk silk serum, but to add to your hairs health you can leave your conditioner in for about 10 minutes while your in the bath tub/ shower (just leave it in while you shave and stuff and rinse your conditioner out last). this really helped repair my hair.

  • Shampoo
    alot of people say that garnier fructise products work good with a flat iron but what is really happening to your hair is that the fruit oils are being melted into your hair, which causes missed patches if you ever dye your hair, chemically relax it, etc... i learned this from my aunt, shes a professional hair stylist... hope this "warning" isnt too late

  • Keep Your Hair Healthy!
    The best thing to keep your hair straight is to make sure its as healthy as possible. I keep mine very healthy with very little (if any at all!) split ends. 1. I get my hair trimmed every 6 weeks. This, Ive noticed, definitely makes my hair feel better and look healthier because (of course) Im cutting off "damaged" or "drier" hair. This helps maintain the length I want, because instead of letting it grow out and get split ends (which, if not getting cut, can split your hair even more! So much that you need more than 1 or 2 inches cut off!) I get it trimmed a bit, but not so much that I cant grow my hair out. 2. I use a moisturizing shampoo. John Friedas Brilliant Brunette Shine Release Moisturizing Shampoo- Amber to Maple Brunettes- works really well for me. After I wash my hair in circular motions on my head and massage it (to hopefully increase blood flow, therefore quickening hair growth...) and rinse out, it feels really nice. It almost feels as if you are using a 2 in 1 (shampoo AND conditioner!) but really, its just shampoo. 3. After I shampoo, I wash my body and such... (you know, the basics) and let water get out all shampoo residue so I can apply conditioner. I then squeeze out most of the water in my hair and apply conditioner (1 and a half tablespoons for me) to my hair. I use John Friedas Frizz-Ease Extra Strength Conditioner...which works reallly well for me. I let the conditioner stay in my hair for a minute or so, then I take a wide-tooth comb and comb through my hair while the conditioner is STILL in so it can condition all my strands. After 3 more minutes I rinse out with warm, and then COOL or COLD water (it helps seal the hair cuticle for a nice finish!) and finish showering. 4. Every week I will deep condition. This is an absolute must to keep healthy hair! I use Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine 3 Minute Deep Conditioner. I love the smell, and I actually apply it in the shower, then I turn off the water and let it stay in my head for 10 minutes while I quickly shave my legs. (I still combed through my hair after a minute, though. Dont forget to do that! Itll help get rid of tangles and conditoner more strands.) I rinse out and my hair feels smooth and soft. Rinse with cool water and finish . 5. After my shower, I BLOT my hair with a towel, and try my best just to lightly squeeze water out, NOT rub it with the towel (which can cause frizz!). Then wait about 5-10 minutes for my hair to get not-so-wet, and apply BioSilk Silk Therapy. This stuff is so great! Its like an oil that seriously makes your hair feel great, not oily. I have long hair, so I put about 2 or 3 drops in my palms, lightly rub my palms together to make the oil seem like a lotion (that way when I apply it to my hair I wont have yucky spots of too-much-product and such). I apply it to my lower layers first, and then my top layers. 6. Heres the thing that will save you *SO* much damage... let your hair air dry! Blow drying can seriously do some damage to your hair. If you just let it dry naturally, you will save yourself a lot of hair-repairing-products money. =) 7. Once my hair is air dried, I apply Redkens Smooth Down heat protective gloss, which is a must in my hair routine. Even though the Solia doesnt really do a lot of damage as would metal straighteners, the heat does damage eventually, and using a protective gloss helps! I use about one full squirt and then a little bitty half-a-squirt (because my hair is long) and put it on my hands like a lotion (Note...I dont apply ALL over my hands like a lotion, just my palms!) and apply it to my bottom layers and then top. 8. Now for straightening! I first make 2 sections. I part my hair from ear to ear, sort of making an n shape (literally, it should look like a lower case n if you part your hair from ear to ear properly!) Then I clip the bottom portion and keep holding the top with my hand. THEN... I take the top and make THREE more parts. The topmiddle part should be about 2 inches wide or 3... and leave you with equal topside parts. Clip your topside parts (left and ride of your top part... if that makes sense) and your topmiddle part (the middle section of your top part...) Start straightening your back part. Then do either your left or right toppart, and finish with your hair at the top center. 9. I finish with with a glossing and shine spray to make my hair keep out humidity and keep my pretty straight strands. I use Redken Vinyl Glass Mega Shine Spray... I love it. 10. Every month... since product use will produce build-up on your hair, I use a clarifying shampoo (Pantene Pro-V Clarifying Shampoo) to get rid of residue and make hair squeaky clean again for another months daily use of products. And thats it! I know it was VERY long... but my hair is so healthy and Im so proud of it! Haha. Well, I hope this worked. It totally worked for me!!

  • For All The Sista's
    My personal word of advice for other black women (and people with "black hair") is to get a home dryer system and deep condition every week. Most of the conditioners we use have a "for more conditioning, use plastic cap and sit under dryer for 5 minutes" type message. If you do this, follow the directions and DO rinse it out. (Your hair will be jacked up if you leave it in.) Then, use a foam hair wrap product to smooth that bad boy into the direction youll be wearing it. Sit under the dryer and paint your toenails for 30 min or until your hair is dry, dry, dry. Break out the flat iron and voila! I dont have to put any other product in it and it is SHINY and light. (At the same time, Im still trying to figure out what that magic substance silkener is that my hairdresser uses...) I realize not everyone will be up for such a weekly ritual but my stubborn hair will not submit to anything less. The whole process takes about two hours. Good luck! SUMMARY: 1. Shampoo 2. Deep condition 3. Foam wrap 4. Solia flat iron!
