So this past Cinco de Mayo, I used the instyler in my cousins hair as per her request. This time I acted like I have a brain and did this better.
My cousin and I parents are first cousins. We aren’t that far apart in look or hair. Same porosity, resistance, texture and good stuff, just that she has a full head of thick strands so her hair is more protein tolerant.
I hadn’t done her hair in 3 weeks, and she hasn’t washed it either, so I clarified it with Nexxus Aloe Rid and followed up with Millcreek Organics Keratin Shampoo. Then I DCed her hair with a mixture of Biolage Cera Repair, Millcreek Organics Keratin Conditioner and her Hollywood beauty Argan Oil conditioner for 20 minutes under the heating cap.
I had it sitting on my bathroom floor to give away. I didn’t I’d use it because I wasn’t impressed with it. Then I read the instructions and it says to use before blow drying. Hmmm…. That’s probably what I did wrong. I used this each time I sectioned a part of her hair to blow dry. It actually sped up drying time.
Each time I’d go a pass with the instyler, I’d use some CHI and this time I used it on High. One pass.
My cousins hair came out great. I wish I had pictures, but it wasn’t until seeing her in the sun that I truly saw how nice it looked. All that protein helped a sister out. Now for another person, that may be too much protein, but this is direct heat. You can’t play with that. Not even a little.
I’m still chicken sh!t to use the instyler, but my courage is slowly returning. Until then, roller sets away!!!
One Day, It Will Happen
