another way to blow it out...
usually, i straighten my hair by sectioning it off,
starting at the bottom layers and round brush blow drying it section by section.
my hair is sooo curly that it needs extra pull and tug and if i don't attack it when the hair is wet, it is prone to go frizzy-town.
mom has started doing it a different way so i attempted it... above are my before and after pix.
simply paddle brush blow your hair out... you know, willy nilly with your head upside down while brushing and blowing from root to tip- just to get it straightish.
use a 1 1/2 or 2 inch curling iron and take each section- again, starting from the bottom layers and going to the top layers and curl around the barrel of the curling iron without clamping down holding the ends near the iron to smooth the hair. i went away from the face then toward the face alternating pieces.
i think this'd be a great way to save time if you have medium to lightly curly hair and perfect for someone with straight hair.
for someone with a fro like mine, it just took SOOOOO long-probably twice the time.... and i felt that if you looked closely enough at the roots, i'd look like a girl who doesn't know how to blow her hair out-- you know that look-frizzy and broken.
BUT my hair was bangin and looked really really full and thick (which it is not).
sooo... maybe i'll do it again & maybe perfect my curling iron skills?
i dunno.. try it. see what you think.
