I'm going on week 3 of not straightening my hair. I used to straighten my hair like three times a week (ouch I know right?) Well, I decided I wanted me hair to be healthier and I put my hair on a diet. Here are the rules:
1- I can only straighten my hair on a special occassion, or once a month.
2- I can only wash my hair at the very least twice a week. (washing your hair too much dries it out and makes the color fade
3- Three words HOT OIL TREATMENT! ( I found these amazing instant hot oil treatments by Tresemme) I do them once a week and they make my hair feel so nice and soft.
4- I've searched for alternatives for my hair since all I used to do is straighten it. I've tried braiding it before sleep and unbraiding it in the morning for waves and recently I stumbled upon...Flexi-rods!!!
Here's the hot oil treatment. You don't even have to heat it up. You open it up and it heats up on its own. It comes with 3 tubes and it only costed me $3.15 in Harmon Face Values.
These are the flexi-rods. You take a chunk of your hair, wrap it up in one of these babies and here are the results after just 15 minutes.
I know I know, they're not good pics but my camera battery died so bare with me. The waves came out amazing and the best part about them is that they aren't damaging my hair.
