I Flat Ironed Again....
I Love my results !! I rollerset my hair on HUGE 3 inch rollers like these in the back:
I know that pic doesn't do a descrption must justice, but the 3" rollers are big enough for you to slide on your wrist like a bracelet. I also used my normal gray rollers for the front, and some 2" rollers in the middle and top.
I did a POOR job in rolling....I did NOT comb my hair well or smooth it onto the rollers flatly. Instead I just kind of sectioned and plopped my hair on the rollers. My hair was still pretty kinky when I took the rollers out, but I was okay with that. I mainly wanted to get my hair stretched and straightened w/o using a blowdryer. I knew my flat iron would fix any "patches" in my hair, which it did!
My Mom bought me an FHI platform for Christmas, I used it for the first time today and I LOVE it... It's AMAZING you guys. I only used it once, but I think I would recommend this flat iron for other natural ladies too !! I've used a CHI before, ughhh HATED IT !! FHI is my baby now <3
Just as an FYI, I prepoo-ed overnight with a moisturizing deep conditioner, then shampooed the next morning, applied some ApHogee 2 Minute Reconstructor as my protein treatment, then followed behind that with a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment. Then I applied my leave-in cream, my foam wrap lotion, and a dab of heat protectant serum. Rolled my hair, dryed, and then applied a little bit more serum. That's sooo many steps, but that's the method that works for me :)
Here is a comparison from last year to now :
This is from February 2010, and today. I'm getting a trim because the ends can look MUCH better.
HHJ everyone =)
