Hair Tip #27

Tips for Thermal Straightening (or Press and Comb):

  • 400°-450° is the highest you want to go. If you use too much heat, it scorches the hair causing damage and the hair will not revert back to curly.
  • Be sure to use the back of the comb to press.
  • Go slow with the heat and use repetition to seal the cuticle.
  • When blow-drying, go slow, using heat and tension to seal the cuticle.
