Hey Poohbear,

Your skin looks glowing with your hair.

Please be careful with the grease and pressing. In Liberia, we call these types of greases good pressing hair grease. In the end with the heat you end up with very straight pieces of hair and little body left to your hair if you do it often. I know many Liberian older women who pressed their hair with grease and it made their hair very straight and no reversion or poofiness but they were left with no more curls. Unless you don't mind then that's the only caution I would give to you. My mother who used to have very thick 4B hair now has 3c hair from pressing with grease over the years. She likes her hair natural now because she can slick some gel and go but she hates the straight pieces and the fact that its not as thick as it used to be.

Best,
Almond Eyes

Great Job!
That's what I was going to ask, whether or not your hair still had movement??

Your hair looks great. I am pro-grease! I'm glad this worked for you. My mother used to use bergamont grease to press my hair and it worked well. I just wouldn't do it too often because my hair ended up thinner and not reverting but I was using a hot comb on high heat.

this technique also works with pressing creme too. I used REP and I'm in love with ultra sheen pressing creme it's vegatable oil based. (alittle better then grease) doesn't weigh hair down if you use it right and I use the maxi glide to flat iron.

Some one would have to come get me down off the ceiling if I didn't wash my hair for 4 weeks

I never thought I'd straighten with grease (especially petroleum based), but I tried it on my roots for the first time the other day.

I used my regular heat protectant, Fantasia IC on my hair and applied a tiny bit of marcel wax on the roots. I have never had a press that looked this good and wasn't frizzy. I put pics in my fotki.

In the past, I'd just use a heat protectant but my hair would frizz up if I even thought about moisture. If I get hot, my head is the first part of my body to sweat. I wish I could be like some ladies and only use a serum, but my hair needs more.

The marcel wax has made a world of a difference. Sure I may have a slight weighted feeling in my hair, but it still has movement and excellent body. I washed it out today and had 100% reversion, no damage done.

ETA: Poohbear, I hope you don't mind. I just wanted to post a picture of my results:

Gotta agree Priss Pot about that marcel wax and heat protectants. A couple of weeks ago I let my auntie press my hair for the first time in 20+ years. At first I was skeptical. But once she started applying the wax and began pressing, I started to remember how good that stuff works on my hair. Although my hair was very big and somewhat uncontrollable at times, I was surprised at the body and movement I had.
