Without a natural relaxer or a traditional relaxer in your hair, it can be tough getting your curls to lie down.
Whipping her hair back and forth!
The first thing you need for natural hair straightening is a flat comb or a straightener. I used the Kowalski brand and I’d give it an eight out of ten. What I didn’t like about it is that the buttons got in the way a lot and I ended up turning it off on several occasions.
Natural Salon Straightened Hair
Start off by washing your hair with a pH balanced shampoo, conditioning it and detangling it. Part your hair straight back, then section into six sections. You can do more or less sections, whatever works. I used croc clips to keep the extra hair out of the way, but use whatever works for you.
What You’ll Need:
Each section you’re straightening should be roughly two inches long and as thin as possible. Gently touch your roots with your straightener three times, then slowly slide down the hair. Take your time doing this. On the last time you’re running the straightener through your hair, run a rattail comb behind it.
TIP! Remember to wrap hair up at night!
Once your hair is straight, you can try out lots of hairstyles that you might not have been able to do otherwise. Such as a braided headband, four strand braid or fishtail braids! What about one or two cornrows on the side?
Whatever you do, send in a picture of it and have fun with your natural straight hair!
