Hair Straightening Tutorial - Blow out and Flat Iron

Hi Bellas!

It's another cold Monday here in Atlanta. I had a great weekend of quality time with the girls and my Boyfriend. Saw a few movies...Good Hair and Where The Wild Things Are. I recommend both!

Anywho, back with another hair tutorial! I needed to wear my hair down and super straight for my best friend's dress rehearsal a few weeks back. I know I'm a bit lazy with my hair on my videos, so I figured I might as well take the opportunity to film myself straightening my hair. I use the blow out and flat iron method.

These are the tools I used:

I like two kinds of brushes. One on the left is a cheapo Con-Air brush...I like using it to detangle. The one on the right is a round, boar bristle brush from Bed, Bath and Beyond. I use it to blow out my hair and give it volume, softness and straightness.

You also need a blow dryer. This one is a cheap travel blow dryer I use.

I also use a flat iron and silk serum. If you want to see my former review on this flat iron and serum, click here.

Check out the video tutorial!



Thanks for watching!

that's lovely and helpful but a lot of work too!

i just had my hair rebonded recently and it saved me a lot of time straightening it with a flat iron. i think i won't be able to straighen my hair with your tools. too clumsy... lol

I ALWAYS use it when im straightening my own hair & others :) try it i promise u wont regret buying it (it is a bit pricey but worth it) xx p.s. i love ur vids on YT & take alot of inspiration from ur vids!!
