Happy Hump Day loves! I am restarting the Wash N Go Wednesday segment now that I have more free time, so stay tuned! I am listening to Spider’s Jam by Ill Camille while my hair air dries. Many of you have been asking how my curls have stayed intact despite me straightening it three times this year. Well, it’s simple. Apple Cider Vinegar, Aloe Vera, and Heat Protectant. Below are the steps I take EVERY TIME I straighten my hair:
When I decide to straighten my hair (which is not very often) I begin with an ACV rinse. Because I have so much product caked up in my curls, I use ACV to thoroughly cleanse my hair. I mix a tablespoon of ACV and a cup of water in a spray bottle. I section my hair into 4 sections, spray my hair, and put a shower cap on for about 20 minutes then rinse.
After rinsing out the ACV I apply the Aloe Vera leaf to each section. Simply cut the leaf down the middle and rub it on your hair from the scalp to the ends. Put a shower cap on for 20 minutes and then rinse with cold water. You’ll notice how soft your hair is instantly after rinsing out the Aloe Vera.
Now for the glossing on the cake (get it? glossing instead of icing). Anyways, in order to protect my hair from heat damage I use the Proclaim Glossing Polish Heat Protectant. I only use a dime size before I blow dry my hair, combing it through so the product is applied all over my head. I love this product because it is extremely light on my hair and doesn’t make it sticky. Viola! Now you look like Beyonce. Kidding, but you will notice your hair looks healthier and will have less heat damage.
Hope this helps!
