Default Attn.hair divas: My hair feels rough but is healthy, how can I get it to feel smooth?

Hey everybody,

I've been in this hair game as a LHCFer since about March (I think) and it's been going good. But I need some help.

It seems like when a lot of heat is used on my hair that it gets my hair to feel really smooth, kind of like weave. I luv this feeling and it makes me feel great about my hair. My cuticle feels smooth and everything.

But when I use indirect heat, which holds a great style, my hair feels kind of rough and not really smooth. I am 4a/b relaxed. I rollerset and rollerwrap my hair once a week (and flat iron the roots when necessary). My hair is the healthiest that it's ever been but still...

What's the deal? How can I get my hair to feel smooth, yall feel me?

I know EXACTLY what you mean. I want to go to the BSS and ask for a product that smooths the cuticle. Here are some things that might help, porosity control, and also doing ACV rinses can help to smooth things out. Are you under processed at all? Cause I know for me that has definitely contributed to my hair feeling rough. Has the henna helped to fill in the cuticles some? Also there is 1more product that I have heard about on her made by Rusk, I think its called "Smoother" do some research on that to see what the product claims are.

When you rinse out your conditioner try a cold water rinse. And when I say cold I mean cold, not lukewarm

Yay (big hug)! You feel my pain

Henna didn't really help it to be more smooth than normal, but I can tell my hair is stronger.

I'm not underprocessed, my stuff is to thick to be playing around with the creamy crack! When I put it on my hair, I have to use it hard core!!!

I'm going to look into those ACV rinses. Thanks :-)

A creamy leave in conditioner like lacio lacio should help.

when i had this problem porosity control helped a lot

at sallys they have the small sample bottles you can get 1 use out of
that should help you figure out if it's a solution

and someone mentioned rusk smoother this is my leave in all the time it replace ntm silk touch ( i'm on the fence between this and G Direct leave in)

OMG ME TOO!!!!....it just doesn't make sense b.c. right before my relaxer, those ends were as healthy as can be. and now (5 weeks after fresh relaxer)..they're rough & jagged.

I did porosity control my 2nd week post...lil change but not much. Hair is still porous. maybe i'll do it AGAIN! ugh..what a pain

If it were only that easy

I've tried coconut oil as a rinse and to seal my leave-ins after washing, no luck.

I've tried chi silk infusion, it's nice, but no match for these ends.

I've tried olive oil serum, "HA!," my ends say.

Soaking wet rollersets and pibby.....one would think...still no improvement.



Starting to think direct heat is the only match for these ends.

I haven't even had them for that long.....I was SL in 2005 and had many trims since.

I'm texlaxed and coloured and even when natural this happened to me, I started using products for coloured hair (that lay down cuticles) Aussie Deep conditioner and Colour treatment, also I did a treatment for ends Traycee (search bootcamp for those that colour) and Robin (www.growafrohairlong.com ) talk about - with foil, cold water/ EVOO and a warm flat iron, that definitely helped

Now, you may be on to something I'm colored and relaxed but I haven't use a color specific product in years.

I'll be researching this treatment for ends too.

Thanks!
