My rules on flat ironing:
*NEVER put a lot of oil on your hair prior to flat ironing. You saw that I only used about a dime-sized amount for each half section. Reason being, if you want your hair to move and not be weighed down, you have to use less product. Second reason, if you're putting a lot of oil/serum in your hair you are COOKING your hair!
*If you can smell your hair (as in a burnt smell) your flat iron is WAY TOO HOT! I've learned that you don't need to flat iron your hair on 400-450. As you saw in the video I only use 340 degrees (this temperature does vary from person to person). I also don't go over my sections more than once. I let the wrapping process smooth out the rest of my hair overnight.
*Give your hair a break between blow drying and flat ironing. This helps your hair cool down and doesn't overly damage your hair with back to back heat application. If in a rush use the cool setting on your hair dryer if you have one. :)
*Flat Iron/Comb Method. This helps the flat iron penetrate your hair strand better. Reason being, the flat iron's heat is going through the comb spaces in your hair. Thus allowing a better heat distribution and smoothes out your ends.
*CLEAN YOUR FLAT IRON AFTER EVERY USE! There is nothing worse than bad heat distribution and smelly hair. If you have tons of gunk on your flat iron it's just transferring that gunk onto your hair, thus giving your hair an unpleasant dirty smell. (Plus, your flat iron just looks dirty...ew!)
