About a month ago I was in Walmart and ran across grapeseed oil. I have been trying to get my hands on some grapeseed oil but it was so expensive at the health food stores. Walmart had it for $4.98 and its cold pressed which is very important to me. I mentioned all of that because I used grapeseed oil as my heat protectant before flat ironing.
The heat of your flat iron is very important. NEVER turn it up to the highest setting. I used 410 degrees but u may need it to be lower than that. My ends don't get straight with the first go round so I will use a small tooth comb on the ends before I do the second round. The ends will become straighter but if they don't I will not run the flat iron over it again.
I was very pleased with the results that were achieved but, I had a dilemma about what to do to keep my hair from reverting when I exercise. My solution was bantu knots! It was actually a win win situation because I could wear my hair straight for longer without having to flat iron again (which was a no no anyway).
After about 4 days I decided that my hair needed some moisture so I used a little moisturizer, a little water and sealed with coconut oil followed by 4 loose braids. The next morning my hair looked like this:
I have no doubt that my curls will return once I decide to shampoo my hair. Currently I'm using Loreal's no sulfate line and I'm loving it.

Thanks for looking.
