Gettin' relaxed locks often means sacrificing your lovely curls for super-straight hair. Though you may not be able to wear your natural curls, you can still create curls with different styling techniques. Your relaxed hair is likely drier and weaker than other hair types, so you should definitely skip the heat and opt for rollers instead. When you take them out, your hair will be full of body and style like never before!
Detangle that mane with a wide-tooth comb to remove knots and make sure your curls can really hang loose and look their best. Just run the comb through your hair from root to tip all over your head until you're sure you don't have any more tangles.
Protect your hair with a heat protectant product by rubbing the product in between your palms and running your hands through your hair. Brush the product through with a bristle brush for even distribution all over your head.
Smooth your hair for added length and to limit shrinking by flat ironing your locks with a ceramic flat iron. Run the iron on medium-high heat from root to tip over thin sections of your hair to get a salon-worthy press.
Grab a section of hair about two fingers wide and place the end of the section on the flexi-rod and roll your hair upward on the roller. Bend the ends of the rod over to secure. Repeat until you have rolled about eight to 10 sections of hair, and keep your rollers in overnight.
Cover your hair with a satin bonnet to prevent breakage from friction between your hair and the pillow and to keep the rollers in as you get your beauty sleep.
Unroll the flexi-rods the next morning and separate the curls for super-alluring spirals around your head. Finger-comb your curls to loosen them a bit if you want a softer wave.
