Before straightening my hair, I always shampoo and condition thoroughly.
And it's always good to use a heat protectant before applying any heat to your hair.
My hair in its natural state.
What I'd give for a pony this long! :)
I start off by parting the hair into sections.
And then I take things one small chunk at a time.
I lead with my Denman brush and follow with my FHI flat iron.
And.....still not done!
....admiring my work lol
I'm not the biggest fan of straight hair. So I always add a little uhmph to the mix.
It's a long process.....but the end result makes it worth it!
