Obviously it was time
To get a Chi Nano.
This is why you’ll love the Chi Nano.
As opposed to other Chi Straighteners, it has temperature control.
And it heats up lightening quickly.
And it still heats all the way up to 395 if you want it to. I don’t think I need that. Even at 290 the Chi still does a better safer job than cheap straighteners (I’ve tried. I know.)
I only had to straighten a few pieces to get my hair to behave. I maintained its wave and texture by focusing on the most unruly defectors (see top picture to see what I mean!).
Don’t forget your thermal protectants and volumizers.
The Sexyhair Straightening Balm is a must have. My hair was very manageable and smooth using just a pea-sized amount of this gem. Also it seems almost unscented. You know I hate chemically overpowering fragrances.
Aveda Brilliant Damage control is a must-use as well. I’ve used it for 7 years. Longer than any product.
BB Thickening Hairspray is the best hairspray I’ve ever used, including Kenra, Pureology, Sebastian, all kinds. And it smells delicious.
For straightening, the Aveda is too wet. I have to use another thermal protectant. I used DermOrganic this time because the Chi Iron Guard I have smells so strong and I got a rash on my arm where it rubbed off. I don’t know if that’s the best though. I’m still on the hunt for a natural argan oil type hair protectant. Suggestions anyone?
This retails between $160-$210. I got it at @marshalls for $69.00. #fabfound
