Beautiful, shiny, STRAIGHT hair!!

Submitted by steph

I  have struggled with my naturally frizzy hair for years, but have recently found a solution. I shampoo with tresemme vitamin E enriched shampoo for dry or damaged hair. i rinse that out and then put in tresemme vitamin E enriched conditioner for dry or damaged hair. I leave that in for about 3 minutes. then rinse it out and put on pantene intensive restoration treatment conditioner.

I leave it in for about 5-10 minutes, and then rinse and put in garnier fructis deep conditioning treatment. I leave it in until I'm about to get out of the shower. I rinse almost all of it out with cool water to close the hair follicles and make my hair really shiny. (i PROMISE this helps.) then wrap my hair up in a towel while I get dressed and put on my make-up. this helps it to dry quicker to minimize blow drying time. when I'm ready to do my hair.

I take it out of the towel and carefully COMB, NOT BRUSH it out. (brushing instead of combing could be the main reason your hair is frizzy. brushing breaks your hair.) then I put a small amount of redken smooth down heat glide in my palm and put it sparingly in my hair, concentrating on the ends. I comb my hair again and then blow dry it, keeping the blow dryer as far as possible from my hair and pointing the dryer straight down to help straighten my hair as well as dry it. once my hair is dry, I comb it out AGAIN and then pull half of it up into a bun on the top of my head so I have access to the bottom layer of my hair. I then straighten it using my straightening iron. the only kind of straightening iron you should use is a ceramic one that has heat adjustor settings on it. you can get these at beauty salons. they are a little more expensive (mine was $50) but are well worth the extra cost because they don't fry your hair and get much hotter to work faster.

I straighten the bottom layer of my hair, then let the rest of my hair down, comb it through again, and straighten the top layer. comb once more and there's your finished product. hopefully lots shinier, healthier, and straighter than before you read this beauty tip!

it was a little complicated but i followed what you did and now my hair looks GREAT. its shinier and straighter than its ever been before, and the products you use are fairly cheap which is a plus.

i do this too, my hair isnt in particularly bad condition so i just shampoo with a colour protective and then a conditioner, i use an intensive conditioner about once a week and the exact same steps for straightening hair, my hair is much softer and shinier tha when i neglected my hair with the old "2-in-1" routine

i went to my stylist after getting my hair colored...and this is exactlywhat she said i should do. my hair is thick and hardto manage but i haven't had heathier hair in my life. my hair looks awesome with redken smooth heat glide.
Finally!! Comments By: tammie s on 2005-08-03
I have very thick hair that is wavy/curly. I have searched for years to find the perfect combination of product and tools to achieve straight hair without helmet head and frizz. This approach is wonderful. I have straight hair, that moves and doesn't make me look like Darth Vader! Especially love the Heat Glide!! Thank you!!
Well. Comments By: Madie on 2005-12-02
Just to warn you if you read on the granier fructis deep conditioning treatment it has alchohol.. Which talking in long term can dry your hair/

but great advice!
