Five Steps to Do a Silk Wrap to Straighten Natural Hair

 

 

Silk wraps are the perfect alternative to a blow out and flat iron. Silk wraps require less heat and can save your hair from heat damage! If you are looking to straighten your natural tresses and still have body without the excess heat, this is the style for you. Here are five easy steps to getting the perfect silk wrap!

1. Cleanse Hair 

Start off with clean and conditioned hair. Thoroughly shampoo and condition your hair with tgin’s Moisture Rich Sulfate Free Shampoo and Triple Moisture Replenishing Conditioner. Thoroughly detangle your hair while the conditioner is in and then rinse.

2.Apply Heat Protectant 

Apply your favorite heat protectant to your damp hair along with tgin’s Green Tea Super Moist Leave in Conditioner to ensure your hair is protected as well as moisturized. Next apply your favorite foaming wrap lotion.

3. Roller Set Hair

Use rollers to set your hair. Completely roll all of your hair in equal sections the same length of your hair. If your hair happens to be shorter in some sections use smaller rollers.

4. Sit Under the  Dryer

Grab a great book and sit under the hair dryer until your hair is completely dry. This could take anywhere from 1-3 hours for most women. Once your hair is completely dry, gently take down all of the rollers.

5. Wrap your Hair 

Wrap your hair using saran wrap to tightly seal in all of your hair. Be sure it is tight and there are no tears or hair unwrapped. Once the hair is wrapped sit back under the dryer for 15 to 20 minutes to set the wrap. Finally unwrap your hair for a beautiful, full look.
