Although I wear my hair straight from time to time(2-3 times a year) I was a little nervous about using this product after reading the directions. The directions were:
Step 1: shampoo hair and towel blot hair dry.
Step 2: part hair into four sections and apply Straight Transition. Comb through to ensure hair strands are thoroughly saturated and leave in hair for 15 minutes.
Step 3: Blow dry hair from root to ends using a brush or comb to make sure entire head of hair is detangled and flat iron at 425-450 degrees.
Step 4: re-shampoo hair and apply goin’ natural 100% pure Moroccan oil
Step 5: Blow dry hair thoroughly and flat iron at 425-450 degrees. style as desired.
When I got to step 5 I simply blow dried and skip the last step which was to flat iron my hair again.
It really did not have a distinct scent to me. It did not smell sweet, tropical, etc. There did not seem to be any special fragrance.
The product worked well, although it was a long process. My hair was straight enough to do a wrap and it had a little body. I decided not to flat iron my hair. I tied it up and planned to just go over it with the curling irons as I bump it the next day. I think I could have gotten better results if I went ahead and followed through with flat ironing (I just did not want to put any more heat on my hair that night). I did discover that I needed a MAJOR trim after going through this process.
I would prefer a larger size for the price. But you would save money doing your hair at home as opposed to going to the beauty shop.
I like the idea of the product. It reminded me of the Brazilian blowout process. It just really seemed like a large amount of heat especially for one process in one day, although the ingredients did not call for any harsh chemicals. I have been wearing it straight for the past 3 days. I’m not sure how much longer it will last(we have a a lot of rainy weather in my area for the next two weeks, need I say anymore). I’m sure it may last longer if I followed through with flat ironing my hair in the final process. For someone who is not sure if they are ready to give in to fully going natural and still want straight hair while in the process of going natural, this product is worth a try!
