Step: Prep towel dried hair with protective thickening lotion and healing oil roots to ends. Then apply shine luxe oil to mid lengths and ends. Comb through everything to ensure even product application.
Step: Using a round paddle brush blow dry hair in even and uniform sections. Make sure to keep air directed downward to prevent the cuticle from fluffing up.
Step: Completely dry hair until there is absolutely no moisture left in it, and is styled to your liking.
Step: Using your smoothing iron, iron in very small sections. Use your iron with a comb, not a brush or your hands. This will allow you to move the comb and tool rhythmically to prevent burning and dents.
Step: When all of hair is sleek, put a couple drops of shine luxe oil in your palms and rake through your hair with it. This will ensure sleekness and touchable softness all day, and prevent you from having to use hair spray.
