ok, my mom was in the drs office and saw this article about putting aluminum foil on your flat iron to press WET HAIR......Yeah, she tried itLOL.
 
The article said the wash hair, apply conditioner, rinse with cold water and blot  hair, DO NOT DRY COMPLETELY.... you wrap the foil around the flat iron and flat iron as normal....my mom tried it on her relaxed hair first....It was so silky and soft...the hair dried instantly...
 
Next she tried it on my neice all natural thick hair....It worked a miracle on her head.Shocked..it was soft, shiny, and really easy to comb thru....all she did different with her hair is add a little lot a body setting lotion...like I said before, the hair dried INSTANTLY....
 
Sorry no before and after pics. I didn't have my camera...I currently have cornrows but will take out in a week and try this method...
 
Has anyone else ever heard of this or tried...What results did you have?

I've never heard of it, but it sounds interesting. I'm curious if other people have tried it as well.

Intresting, Im definatley going to try this when i next flat iorn my leave out ... Did you use heat protectant aswell still?
