It was a little slow today, at my tiny run-down apartment and I decided that to entertain myself I would force my roommate to let me straighten her hair.
She has beautiful curly that she usually styles with a thick headband and down. She never, ever straightens her hair or styles it so I had to beg (fake tears, included) her to let me straighten up her hair.
Basically, I sectioned her hair off and used my GVP flat iron with my Tresemme heat protectant spray. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't used that product as the heat protectant and had opted for an oil based product because my roommate's hair became exceptionally dry after I straightened it. I did put a very tiny amount of Argan oil (which I'll be doing a review of very, very soon!) and trimmed the ends so that it wouldn't look as dry when straightened.
For anyone straightening very curly hair, I recommend using an oil as a styling agent versus a spray like the Tresemme heat protectant. The reason being, you typically have to use higher temperatures and run your straightener over your strand of hair multiple times in order to fully straighten it. Look for some oil products at your local beauty supply store or Target.
