I decided to give straightening my hair another go. Its been so long I was definitely out of practice!
First, I washed my hair using Miss Jessie's Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo and conditioned with their Creme de la Curl Cleansing Creme (which was buy one get one free!). I used Kinky Curly's Knot Today as a leave in.
Second, I sectioned my hair and applied Beyond the Zone Smooth Criminal Thermo Protect Spray. I then blow dried using a paddle brush.
Lastly, I sectioned my hair and used Isoplus's Pressing Oil before using the InStyler to straighten. I did cut my hair to even the layers out.
I am pleased with my turn out!! I have managed to keep it straight for about 3 weeks but I am going back to my curls because I don't want any damage to my hair.
