I am officially 4 months post relaxer, and I’ve been wearing curly styles and buns ever since my new growth started coming in. Sooooo, I decided to use my heat pass for the year, and flat ironed my hair! I probably should have waited a couple months until it got colder, but I couldn’t help it. Hopefully the humidity doesn’t completely kill my hair before I get to enjoy it lol.
The products I used were:
Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray
GVP Silk Remedy (Sally’s off-brand version of Chi Silk Infusion)
Revlon Perfect Heat Tourmaline Ceramic Straightener
After My Hair Was Washed and Air Dried:
Halfway Done Flat Ironing!:
The Finished Product:
My hair is now wrapped, and tied under a satin scarf. I’ll leave that for the rest of the night, and see what it looks like tomorrow.
Well that’s all for now. Thanks for reading!
i transitioned for 11 months before i just couldnt take the breakage anymore and chopped my hair off lol.. heat was a bad bad idea i soon learned with my own hair lol. good luck on your journey!
Thank you! And I’ve already limited myself to heat once a year. I’m too afraid of breakage and heat damage to use heat all the time lol
Beautiful! What setting of heat did you use on your flat iron?
Thanks! My flat iron goes from 0-30 and I put it on 15. I would guess that’s no more than 350 degrees, probably less.
