I have been doing my own hair for years. My mom was a licensed barber and cosmetologist when I was growing up, so I think I have a natural ability from watching her do hair. Now don’t get me wrong, I make sure I get a professional to trim and color my hair, but besides that, I will get my hair right in the comfort of the own home. I mean, sometimes you just don’t have time to sit at the salon and it’s always good to save a dollar or two. Doing your own hair can be pretty easy if you have the right products.
Below is the shampoo and conditioner I used to complete my look:
These products can be purchased at Family Dollar.
After my hair was clean and conditioned, I used the paddle brush below along with a blow dryer to dry it.
This brush was purchased at Marshall’s for about $5
I used this blow dryer and I purchased it at Marshall’s for about $30
Below is a pictures of my hair from wet to dry (shampooed, conditioned, dried and straightened.) Don’t forget to use a paddle brush instead of a blow dryer attachment. To straighten my hair, I used a FHI ceramic iron (purchased on Ebay for $29.99 from Beauty Wholesale and More.) See flat iron below.

Below is a view of the back on my hair once straightened.
It took me about 1.5 hours from start to finish. I find that it is easier to let my hair air dry a bit (15-20 mins) before blow drying it.
Stay tuned for my next weekly natural hair journey updates. Please leave a comment with any tips or product must haves.
