Happy Monday babes! Today’s post is going to be a short tutorial on how I straighten my hair, as well as a review on my new straightener from Irresistible Me Hair!
For starters, my hair is naturally quite straight with a little bit of wave to it. In this ‘Before’ picture I had curled it the night before and this was my “I woke up like this” hair :)
Step 1: I brush out my curls then spray heat protectant all over – I’m a fan of the TRESemmé one!
Step 2: I’ll clip my hair up and section it into 2 parts. I like straightening the bottom half first, making sure to start close from the roots. I like to straighten the same strand of hair twice before moving on.
Step 3: Once I’ve done the bottom half, I let down the top and straighten the strands around my face. I don’t put any product in my hair after I’m finished. I like to keep it simple and let my hair breath :) Super easy right?
As for my the straightener, this style is called the Diamond Hair Straightener and I’ll give it a 7/10. I love how fast it heats up, and it tells you along the way what temperature it’s at. You can adjust it easily by just pressing the up/down buttons and it can go up to 450F. It’s super light and easy to work with. Plus, if you forget to turn it off, it automatically shuts off for you within 30minutes, so one less thing to worry about ladies!;) However, since my hair is long and thick, it took me quite a long time to straighten my hair. I usually use a straightener from Sally’s Beauty which is 1.5 inches wide which makes the process much faster.
