I just wanted to share the results of my latest flat ironing with you. I'm a natural 4a/4b who hardly ever flat irons. Im in a growth challenge so I limit flat iron to maybe 3-4 times a year. My hair is hightly textured, very cottony and prone to reversion.
I was looking for a heat protectant that didnt have any silicones in it because I'm following the curly girl method(no silicones/sufates). I was really surprised how this product left my hair. I'm from Los Angeles, the home of the silky press and I believe this product left my hair as silky as an stylist could get it. My hair also reverted back to its curly state so I also believe that its as good a heat protectant as it is a defrizzer.
To get this look I lightly sprayed on damp hair in section before blowdrying. I then flat ironed using the chasing method using this straightening and cutting comb from amazon.com. No other products used. The coconut scent smells delicious!
You can purchase here or at an organic supermarket:
The pic on the left is when I used Chi Iron guard and Chi silk Infusion. My hair was dull and stiff. The pic on the right is when I just used Desert Essence. It's flowing and shiny and silky.
This is a pic of my natural texture. I consider my hair a solid 4a with tight ringlets. But I do have some tighter and looser curls around my nape. I have a LOT of shrinkage as well.
