Curly/straight

MCLKMCLK Posts: 11Registered Users
Ok, so my hair gets super curly after a shower. I want to straighten my hair but it is a huge hassle and takes forever. I don't want to have to straighten it every couple of days. Any ideas about how to make my hair stay straight after a shower? I have tried using gel, but not very enthusiastically since gel makes my hair crusty and sticky. So I didn't put too much on. That may be the answer, but I just wanted to know if anyone has any other ideas?
Thanks

    Do you mean that if you straighten your hair and then you take a shower and it gets curly again?? But you want to keep it straight after you get out of the shower? :confused:

    Yeah, that's exactly what I mean. I have naturally curly hair, I straighten it, and then take a shower, and it curls again. Any ideas on how to keep it straight after the shower? Sorry about the confusion! :)

    I don't think you can keep it straight after you wash your hair again.. :-|

    Alright, I see your problem. I used too have the same issue(now I'm cg and wear my hair natural everyday). There's this new product that you can get at sephora and it's called straight hairspray. Basically you spray it in ur hair when it's wet and just brush it a bunch and it'll stay straight. My friend who is a natural 2c/3a tried it and worked wonders on her hair. It was pretty amazing. I don't know how it will work for you but, I guess it's worth a shot. I hope that helped. Good luck :)
