How To Straighten Natural Hair | The Mane Choice


Hey Everyone,

I don't know about you, but when I straighten my natural hair I can't seem to get it as silky and straight as a hair stylist or blow out specialist would if I was to hand over that $150. LOL!  You guys know I am all about DIY Hairstyles, so when I tried my hand at flat ironing my own natural hair in the past, it just doesn't seem to flow and definitely doesn't have the lasting power to withstand humidity or a straightened naturals most feared nightmare "The Rain"!!! 

Well....I hadn't straightened my hair myself in over a year, so I was thinking it was about time and was recently able to collaborate with www.TheManeChoice.com and try out their do it yourself/at home 5 Step Thermal Defense Silkening Collection. I must say that I was honestly impressed with how well my hair straightened with only (1) pass of the flatiron, but I ended up doing (2) and I was excited that my hair didn't start reverting back as soon as I finished.  The collection is full of products that are designed and formulated to help prevent premature reversion of natural hair and helps to maintain the sleek look for longer without achieving damage *if used properly and used with the correct amount of heat was used for your hair*

This is certainly not a hair straightening system as it doesn't promise to elongate your natural hair after use and nor does it permanently straighten natural hair, but it is a collection that will help you achieve maximum results should you chose to flatiron your natural hair.  This collection in conjunction with the Give It To Me Straight Collection and the Green Tea & Carrot Deep Conditioning Mask are a win win combination. The results speak for themselves!!!!


 
 I USED THE FOLLOWING:

  • Give It To Me Straight Moisturizing Shampoo is infused with Morrocan Argan Oil for incredible shine and frizz control and citric acid to remove build-up and restore pH balance to hair and scalp. This shampoo is safe for all hair types including color-treated hair, it lathers up easily with just a small amount, and it smells really nice and fresh.

  • Green Tea & Carrot Deep Conditioning Mask is packed with nourishing, healthy hair necessities like organic aloe juice, castor oil, sunflower oil, hydrolyzed wheat protein for strength, broccoli seed oil, which is great for frizz-control, coconut oil, green tea extract for protection and carrot seed oil, to treat the scalp, prevent breakage and protect from outside elements. It also has great slip allowing the product to coat the hair and detangle with ease.

  • Give It To Me Straight Leave-In Detangler is a lightweight mist infused with chamomile matricaria and aloe leaf juice for ultimate hydration, wheat amino acids for strength, sage extract to reduce shedding and enhance natural luster, and many other key ingredients that help keep the hair
  • moisturized and easy to detangle.
