I split the last blog post up into two parts so that it wouldn't be to long for you guys.
When blow drying hair I like to apply the smooth criminal (from the post) to each section as I do it. I apply the serum, then brush it through to make sure the section is fully coated. I like to use a paddle brush when blow drying because it has great air flow, and it also cuts the drying time in half. I used to use a boar bristle brush, which was great because it made the hair super sleek, but when I discovered the paddle brush, I noticed that the hair came out a lot smoother, and straighter in half the time and it also had great body to it.
When flat ironing hair, I like to work in small section, because I can reach the hair better, and make sure that the heat is getting evenly distributed. I apply the heat protectants on heat section before I go in with the flat iron. To flat iron it takes me about two hours, just because there is a lot of hair that needs to be straightened. When I am finished the hair is nice and silky and like to add a little bit of my Bare Your Hair Unscented Oil for a nice shine and then I make sure to wrap it every night.
The key to getting silky hair, is to not use a lot of products that are going to weigh your hair down, and make sure that you're getting your hair as straight as possible when blow drying, that way you don't have to do so many passes when you flat iron.
For my daughters hair I like to keep the flat iron on about 400 because her hair is super thick and coarse, so it takes a lot to get it straight, and it can also take the amount of heat.
