Question:

I'm going to the salon to get my hair flat ironed on Friday. I've read that the hair must be shampooed clean and deep conditioned before the process. What I'm not sure of is if I can moisturize and if I should skip the sealing before going to the salon or not.


I remember reading that using oil might bake the hair in and also to avoid too much product if I want the hair to come out straight and bouncy. But if I don't moisturize at all, I figure my hair would be super dry? So can I moisturize at least a little? I need to look "presentable" (not by my standards) on Saturday. I've only flat ironed twice while natural and the last time was a disaster (heat damage)

Thanks

I know what to do after the flat iron (no water-based moisturizer, only light oil) but I don't know if my moisturizing products before the flat ironing will impact the results.

Thanks for answering. I moisturized and sealed lightly and then had my stylist do it. My problem is it works a little too well! She got it smooth after one pass but it was to smooth for me. The thing is, although my hair is long, it's become very fine for some reason. Only noticed this after flat ironing. I guess I got to keep my hair a little dirtier before flat ironing so that it doesn't press too smooth...

That's good you had nice results. I find my hair only bulky/thick when it's not 100% straight.
