I’ve been itching to flat iron my hair for weeks now and I finally gave in and pulled out my Sedu Revolution 1″ in this week… along with my hair shears. I couldn’t help myself! Flat ironed hair always equals a trim around these parts. Okay, the recap. Wait, one last thing. I keep forgetting to mention that all product reviews have been organized by brand and can be found on this page: Product Reviews By Brand. Okay, NOW, the recap:
 Pre-poo with HairVeda Red Tea Nourishing Conditioner.
 Shampoo with Creme of Nature Moisture & Shine Shampoo.
 I let my hair dry a bit then deep conditioned with Kurlee Belle Banana Nut & Avocado Conditioner under my heating cap. I finished my jar of his conditioner so a review is coming soon but upfront it’s a nice detangler and triggers hand-in-hair syndrome because it makes it fun to play in my new growth.
 T-shirt dried for about 45 minutes and blow dried my hair with cold air using the tension method after applying my leave-ins: Komaza Care Matani Leave-In Conditioner and Dark and Lovely 6 Week Anti-Reversion Cream Serum. Side note: I’ve been meaning to use this Dark and Lovely product for a while now and report back to you on whether it really does “prevent curls, kinks, and waves up to 6 weeks in-between relaxing” but because I don’t use direct heat often, it’s been on the back-burner. I’ll let know you how well it keeps my new growth smooth after my next wash.
 After drying my hair, I sprayed CHI 44 Iron Guard (heat protectant) on my hair and flat ironed my hair with my Sedu Revolution 1″. I also recorded this step and hope to have edit and upload soon.
 After flat ironing, I was happy to see that the 2 inches I cut off last November (in this post) was back. I took advantage of my straightened hair this wash day and trimmed off an inch. I also dusted the shorter ends that I wasn’t able to cut off in one swoop with the inch trim. I recorded how I dust my shorter ends – I was on a recording roll! – so again, that will be up soon.
Pardon the quality of the next pics, snapped them with my phone.
 The last step of the night was to apply a little bit of Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum to my hair and loosely bunned it for the night. I avoid using any hair ties when loosely bunning for bed to avoid having a dents in my hair the next morning.
But more than anything I’m happy that even at 37 weeks post, I was able to successfully flat iron my hair. I plan on enjoying these straight tresses this week because I won’t be using direct heat for at least another 4 months.
