Heat protectant moisturizer
Plastic wrap (Saran wrap)
Before starting, make sure your hair is completely dry. If hair is relaxed, roller set first, or, if natural, follow your usual routine of straightening your hair.
Grab about a dime-sized amount of your moisturizer (preferably a heat protectant one to prevent heat damage). Rub into your hair concentrating on ends. Use a comb to distribute evenly throughout your hair.
Brush the hair into a smooth wrap and do not use any pins as this may give you creases in the end. If need be, spray a light layer of an oil sheen spray.
Apply the saran wrap over your hair, and make sure that it's firmly secured.
Blow dry your hair for about 10 to 20 minutes.
Remove the plastic wrap and comb out the wrap.Your hair should be silky smooth and straight!
Depending on how processed or curly your hair is, you may need to repeat this process several times to ensure straight, silky hair. Use the lowest heat setting as not to burn your hair, and always ensure that you use a heat protectant cream.
