2 weeks ago, I straightened my hair! It had been 5 months since I had done so and I was ready to check out my length, plus my new color J
I finally tried out the newest products added to the Motions line- Straight Finish (Motions® Hair Care can be purchased at Target, Walmart and http://www.drugstore.com) . This trio includes 3 products: Straight Finish Cleanser, the Straight Finish Leave-In Conditioner & the Straight Finish Sealer.
I’m pretty good at blowing and straightening my hair. Products can make it easier or harder. Motions…made my life easier.
I started with an old twist out so of course my hair was tangled. I used the Cleanser which to me is similar to a co-wash. While it cleansed, it was definitely moisturizing. I combed through with my fingers first and then used my trusty paddle brush to thoroughly get all the tangles out and to clump the curls. I did that process twice.
When I got out the shower, I put enough of the Leave In Conditioner to coat my hair and combed it through with a paddle brush- (hair still wet). This product wasn’t heavy at all. In fact, I thought I put too much on, but it really wasn’t. You are only supposed to use a small amount though. To me , the leave in is like a blow dry cream. It made it easier to blow out my hair using a blow dryer with a nozzle attachment and a paddle brush. I did it in about 6 sections.
Lastly, it was time for the straightening process! My least favorite part lol. I used the Sealer to put on my hair in small sections and I straightened section by section. I did it in sections because I wanted to make sure that the product was from root to tip on ALL of my hair. I straightened in very small sections using 410 degrees. I know it’s a lot , but it works on my hair. I only pass the iron through ONCE and don’t have to go back over it.
Voila! Straight, frizz free hair!
(Took me only 2 hours from wash to completely straight!)
And it lasted all week. (even after sweating in the gym). Check me out before the Rihanna concert: (This is Day 6 by the way)
…and during the concert:
Just as expected, after washing my straight hair over a week later, my curls and coils bounced back! I had high expectations and Motions didn’t let me down. No heat damage at all and back to my beautiful curls.
So what did you think about my transformation of #Curly2Straight
