Straight Up!

by Linda Ripoll in News on 4th November 2013
With the temperatures cooling off outside, it’s the perfect time to heat up those straight, sexy sleek looks for fall and winter.
It’s our belief at Mixed Chicks that versatility ROCKS!  Being natural brings the best of both worlds and makes your style options almost limitless.  Many of us rock the ‘on the go’ curly looks in spring and summer due to the quick styles and the conveniences of leaving the house with our hair damp.
With weather changes, Mixed Chicks Straightening Serum offers you the safe option of going from curly to straight without harsh chemicals or permanent straightening agents.  It also provides a thermal protectant that allows you to return to the wonderful world of curls without ‘drooping’ and breakage.
Simply shampoo and deep condition with Mixed Chicks as normal.  Many of us co-wash on a regular basis but when using any thermal straightening tool it is always best to thoroughly cleanse the hair in addition to building moisture.  You never want to skip the conditioning step especially in the colder months when the fabrics in our clothing changes.  Wool, polyester and woven fabrics are just a few fabrics that can pull much needed moisture from our already thirsty locks. Hats, scarves, sweaters and coats also can rob hair of its natural oils.
After detangling with Mixed Chicks paddle brush and rinsing Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner, apply Mixed Chicks Straightening Serum directly to damp hair. Depending on the density of your locks I would advise you to divide the hair in at least four sections to ensure even distribution from the roots to the ends of the hair.
Follow by blow drying or roller setting. You can even finish with ceramic straightening/styling!!  This product will cut your drying time by almost half and extend your silkout by about three days.
Enjoy and ROCK on!!
