Default Silky, silky, silky, silky, silky hair!!!!

Thought I was talking about me, huh?

Question of the day is what gives you that silky, soft to the touch, swinging and blinging hair?

C'mon. Don't be scurrred. I've seen yall photos. What does it for you? Is it a product you use? Is it your (or your hairdresser's) technique?

Inquiring minds want to know

For me its when I get my hair set at a Dominican Salon. My hair is always swingy.

In my avatar I just got a relaxer and they used red rollers to set. They blow dried on the roots and left the remainder of the curl. My hair was bouncin' and behavin'

My hair is gets silky just from the Domican Salon with a fres relaxer. I honestly think that many photos are posted when hair is freshly relaxed/done by a professional, so the it looks its best. Otherwise, ladies need to start confessing!! LOL!!!


I have a friend who is a hairdresser and she can get my hair silky with my own products BUT she wraps & dries it and then uses A HOT *** FLAT IRON. I am not doing that every week. So i let her do it once and that was it!

For me the key is not a specific product, it's NOT putting too MUCH product on. I get my silkiest swingiest results when I use a good deep conditioner, a light leave and little serum after a rollerset. Once I begin adding oil and moisturizer and all of that (whether to wet OR dry hair) - bad things start to happen.

This has always been the case for me too, especially because I have fine, thin hair. Although I will add that the Elucence serum DOES do something special for my hair...

i have to agree with tracy on this one. too much product is not a good thing. i get the best results when i use the least amount. when my stylist does my hair, it's all in the technique. she can use absolutely nothing, and it's on point. i don't have that touch. i have to at least use a serum. it creates shine and eliminates static. they're all about the same except for the smell IMO. i prefer Avon Dry Ends Serum.

My silkiest hair comes by way of daily CO washes with Nexxus Humectress and Aussie 3 Min Reconstructor w/Tea Tree Oil, my shea butter strengthening moisturizer (Cantu), and Vatika Oil. I don't know about swing, because I haven't worn my hair down and flowing in a long time.

Thanks for your responses ladies

I agree that too much products are not good when wearing the hair out. They can make the hair heavy and flat, so I'll be sure to steer clear from that. See, what had happened was I recently had my hair done by a stylist who works out of her home (she did a great job and I really like her). Anyway, she hotcombed my hair, and my hair was really laid down and very, very straight. I have the pics in my album pswd:hairgoal05. The only thing I didn't like was my hair had the "burnt" smell and lacked volume. I wrapped my hair every night since having it pressed, and it got a little more swingy as time went by, however not ENOUGH, ya know? Anyway, I have a TON of hair, so there's no reason my hair should have been sooo... flat. She didn't use a lot of products, but I'm wondering if the hotcomb was too darned hot. I don't really think my hair was burned, but more so the hotcomb needed cleaning before touching my hair. I dunno.

So, that's my story that inspired this thread

By the way Andreamaria... I got silky, shiny hair today! I used glossing polish and oil for a rollerset to achieve it!

Inquiring minds want to know
Since I’ve only worn my natural hair out once, I still don’t know what my natural hair is fully capable of doing, yet, so I can’t speak on it.

For straightened hair, I have always put oils on wet hair along with a leave-in, because everything works better that way for me. Don't put too much oil, if you need more oil you can put it in later. Oils condition your hair better while it’s still wet. Don’t put too much product on your hair...period.

However, I don't use oils anymore after switching to MNT. I don't need oils at all anymore, because I use MNT Conditioner as a leave-in…and that’s it. Even a little oil is too much now.

I “blow-out” my hair. I don't "blow-dry" my hair, because my hair is not wet or damp it's completely dry. I just blow my hair out, if I don't do that then my hair will be stuck to my head. I slick my hair back like the 3rd picture in my album and tie a satin scarf around my head and air-dry. If I'm in a hurry I sit under a hooded dryer...no satin scarf (takes too long to dry). Then I blow it out.

After I blow-out my air-dried/dried hair, I use the CHI. I flat iron piece by piece, and section by section on a medium heat. Then I style my hair with a comb and my fingers…and that’s it.
