You know the saying, the grass is always greener on the other side. Well such is the case with our hair. Those of us with straight hair sometimes long for wavy or curly hair. In fact, one of our editors showed us how she went from Straight to Curly (see her before & after photos HERE). But it seems that those of us with curly hair have to do a lot more work (and spend more $$) to go straight.
One of our readers, Evelyn Lugo, wrote into us to share her secret on how she goes from Curly to Straight. Here’s what she told us:
Before I begin this process, my hair is fuzz-ball as you can see above. First I wash my hair with Pantene Curly Shampoo and follow with Pantene curly conditioner.
Then I use John Freida Frizz Ease (section my hair into 12 mini sections in order to thoroughly get product “in”).
Then I use Ouidad Heat And Humidity Gel (or I alternate with Pantene Curly Gel). Let air dry and viola!
No matter how many diffusers I buy, they only make my hair look like “Mufasa” from The Lion King, so I skip that step.
For the sleek look, I use Johnson’s Baby Shampoo (seriously, it removes build up and is also great to clean make-up brushes!) I run Extra Strength Frizz Ease through sections of my hair (use Ouidad’s duck bill hair clips) and let air-dry. Then when almost completely dry, I blow dry the roots with a small roller brush and then use my Gilberé Flat Iron (Sally Drug Stores) 2″ ceramic plates. For Shine, I followed up with “Shine” spray on polisher, ($4.00 in drug stores) Frizz Ease is the foundation to any hair style I do – its a must! Below is the end result of my 5 hour DIY-at-home-technique.
