I just flat ironed my hair this weekend and love it! I used the Jilbere teeny ceramic flat iron with dial. I have relaxed hair (six weeks post relaxer). My hair came out silky soft. How often can I flat iron on my relaxed hair?
This is what I did:
Pre-shampoo oil treatment
Deep conditioner with oil
Rollerset with leave-in conditioners and a little Breakthru heat protectant
Based scalp with Ultra Sheen (Hair Food) and oil then did the Silkies Saran Wrap Treatment
(this took out all of the roller ridges and straightened my hair)
I then wrapped my hair for the night...
In the morning, I applied a little Ultra Sheen again on scalp and throughout hair then flat ironed my hair. I had great reasults and my hair was blowing in the wind
Next time I do this, I may skip the Silkies treatment, if I am short on time.
Have any of you with relaxed hair flat ironed once a week with no damage to your hair?
[I thought about this because when I used to go the Dominican salons every week, they used a very hot hairdryer on my hair after my rollerset. So that heat was probably comprable (if not more) than the heat that I used with my flat iron this weekend.]
