With summer here and that means heat and humidity. These two words are no friends to hair and especially natural curly hair.
My first tip is how to smooth and straighten curly hair. After you shampoo and condition hair.I recommend Framesi WIO straight balm, You will need to put about a dime to quarter size in your hair. The amount of this product depends on the length and thickness of your hair. I recommend taking small sections to style, this makes it easier to work with. Clip the hair out of the way that you aren't drying, Take down small sections at a time and dry each strand. Once hair is dried completely, you will need to add a thermal protect spray and start smoothing with flat iron.
If you decide to wear your hair with the natural curl, after you shampoo and condition the hair. I recommend Framesi curl cream, you will need to put a dime size to quarter size in your hair.
