    When I know I'm going to straighten my hair, I always wash and deep condition my hair the night before. Then I towel-dry and tie it into a ponytail and let it air dry until morning.

    When morning comes, section my hair from bottom to top (straightening the bottom first) and I start my process.
    The things I use is a fine tooth comb, a hair tie, tresemme heat tamer spray, and my chi iron. I used to use the chi iron guard, but it got too expensive for me to keep buying. XD And the tresemme one smells a lot better.

    I keep my hair moisturized days before with cowashes and deep conditioning

    Before: I cleanse or cowash my hair, detangle and deep condition, and while still wet and in the shower I band my hair is 4 to 5 sections and air dry overnight!

    In the morning, I tension blow it out with Redken Satinwear and do the comb chase method with one pass. Takes me about 2 hrs but it gets it straight silky and no damage. I only do this 1 or 2 times a month :)
    Products I use:
    Shampoo: SM JBCO shampoo/ ACV rinses
    Cowash: Taliah Waajad Creamy Cowash
    Conditioner: Giovanni 50:50/ Giovanni Tea Tree
    Leave-in: CJ Curl Assurance/ SM Strengthening Milk
    Deep conditioner: EVA Nye/ ORS Hair Mayo
    Oils: Apricot oil/ Avocado oil/ Coconut oil

    Current (working on) Regimen:
    ACV rinses once a month
    SLS shampoo and deep condition once a week
    Protein treatment: 2x a month
    Cowash midweek
    Leave-in + oil everyday

    I just use any deep conditioner that I like the look of in store, usually that banana organics one though. Then I straighten on the lowest or near to the lowest heat setting (around 160)
