How I Straighten My Curly Hair

Every now and then I like to straighten my hair and have a new look. Never works in humid weather because I get frizzy, so I tend to do it more in winter and spring. Years ago I used an oval brush and blow dryer and now I’m thrilled with straightener brushes, cuts the time down to 20 minutes for me.

Straightener brushes are used on dry hair instead of wet so I tend to do mine the day after a wash day. I start by applying a heat protectant spray all over and sectioning my hair, clipping the top half up. Section by section I brush it over with a Wet Brush to get out any tangles and use the straightener at least once through each section.

Here’s a video for you to get an idea of what I do:

After I’ve gone through my whole head with the straightener I rub Verb Ghost Oil throughout, this smooths out the flyaways and controls any frizz. I also spray some hairspray over as well. I like having a slight wave still to my hair so I don’t go crazy trying to make my entire head pin straight.

All of the products I used and the Moroccan Oil straightener brush can be found on Paramount Beauty Marketplace. I am an affiliate of the company and will make a small commission if you make a purchase. I appreciate the support, thank you!

What do you think, do you like the curls better or the straighter style? My family all like the curls better 🙂

Curly Hair Care: What My Hair Has Been Loving

I started doing conditioner water soaks for my curls and cannot get over the difference in how my curls look! I have low porosity hair, which means it likes heat and loves conditioner. I only wash my scalp every ten days or so and do lots of conditioning and apple cider vinegar washes in between. This conditioner water soak has made the most difference in my hair since I stopped washing it so much a couple of years ago. I did recently chop off half my hair so I know that helps too.

I made you all a little video showing how to do a conditioner water soak for your curls 🙂

As I mentioned previously, I started a YouTube channel and post my videos there first. I’d love for you to subscribe to my channel! Momma Wanderer on YouTube

I’m using Ouidad products in this video: Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner and Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel (affiliate links). Honestly I’m not married to any one line of products or options. I stick with no sulfate or silicone products. I’ll post more about my favorites in the future 🙂
