Technique: How I Flat Iron My Natural Hair


This step is a must if I'm trying to get really sleek hair. My pre poo, this time, consisted of coconut oil, honey, olive oil, Giovanni's deeper moisture conditioner, and a cayenne pepper conditioner all mixed in a green container. I apply my pre poo by smoothing the mixture onto my hair in a downward motion from root to tip. I put this mixture on dry hair and I cover my hair with a plastic cap for about 2-3 hours without heat. (Check out my pre-poo post HERE)

Shampoo & Condition

Next, I shampoo and deep condition in the shower. I leave in the deep conditioner for about 10-15 minutes under a plastic cap, then rinse. I use the I'ts a 10 product line at this current time and I also love the Moroccan Argan Creme Shampoo. Click "HERE" for products.

Blow Dry

I dry my hair in a T-Shirt for about 10 minutes, add It's a 10 leave in conditioner along with the It's a 10 smoothing balm. Next, I blow dry my hair using the Yellow Bird blow dryer by conair and tie my edges with a silk scarf.

Flat Iron

Lastly, I flat iron my hair with the KQC flat iron using a chasing comb. I normally flat iron between 370-410 degrees. HOT!! I wrap my hair at night and that's about it.
