I said in my last hair post that I was on a mission to grow out my hair. I had a list of things that I was going to do — not straighten it was one of them. Well, I didn’t straighten it for about a month. And I realized something. I hate when I don’t straighten my hair. I feel lazy and like I haven’t really gotten ready for the day. My hair took it well, it went nice and wavy/curly and it looked alright but I hated it. I hated it so much that I couldn’t even stand it. I kept just pulling it up into a bun and leaving it up.

So, I started straightening my hair again so I can feel like a productive human being. I’ve been on a mission to find good products and ways to straighten my hair and keep it healthy. 

My revised hair care tips:

 

My Brush

A vented paddle brush – I use this brush when I’m blow drying my hair. It makes such a huge difference in drying time. I don’t know how i lived without a vented paddle brush. I seriously can’t even tell you how thick my hair is. It’s thick enough that if I am letting my hair air dry, it takes 3 to 4 HOURS to air dry completely – sometimes longer. It’s horrible. It can take me forever to blow dry my hair so if I can cut down any time under the blow dryer, I’m going to do it. This brush, this is the key to drying your hair faster. 

Products I Use

Argan Oil – I put argan oil on my hair before I blow dry it. My hair is naturally dry so it needs all the extra help in staying moisturized that it can get. I’ve been a huge fan of Argan oil for a long time – I even use it in my beard care line – it’s amazing for hair and nails and even your skin. You have to be careful when you use this, you don’t want to make your hair too oily. I mostly just apply it to my ends. I’ve been told that Argan oil helps protect hair from breakage and heat damage. 

 

Tools I Use

Flat Iron – Tourmaline ceramic flat iron – mine is actually blue because I didn’t see a purple one when I bought it. Tourmaline ceramic is supposed to help with frizz and static. Whether this is true or not, I can’t say. I have no complaints about my flat iron though. It straightens my hair perfectly. I use a low heat setting and am able to get my hair straight and it stays straight until I wash it again.

Blow Dryer with Diffuser – I don’t have a super fancy blow dryer. I use this one one a low heat setting and use the diffuser attachment. I don’t use this every time I wash my hair. Sometimes I just let my hair air dry and then I use my flat iron. 

 

 

Other Helpful Information

I have information about products and tools right there as well as tips an articles on how to keep your hair healthy AND straighten it! Bonus, right?
