Recently here at Silk Trends we have had a number of transformations but the one that has stuck out the most happened to be a lovely young lady named Tamara with natural mixed textured hair.
When Tamara came to us, she gave us a pre warning telling us that almost every other hairdresser that she had been to had run away from her hair as it was so unruly and difficult to tame. Tamara also told us that she has to dedicate a whole day just to wash her locks and by the end of the process she’s too tired to bother with treatments, let alone anything else so she ends up scrunching her hair back up into a ball until the next time she decides to tackle the challenge.
Now, our salon director Ingrid lives by the motto that no hair shall ever defeat her and defeat her it did not!
Here’s how our very own Ingrid conquered the what was once thought to be the impossible;
After partaking in a luxurious of Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath shampoo and conditioner, D’Tangle leave in conditioner by Mizani and Silken Seal by KeraCare were worked through Tamara’s hair evenly. The hair was then sectioned into four different sections and blow-dried using a dryer with a comb attachment to help bring the hair into a straighter stature. By bringing the hair into a straighter structure this would make it easier to straighten sleekly when it came to the pressing process.
Tamara’s hair was then sectioned again and pressed with wide ceramic Wet 2 Straight hair straighteners by Remington. Mizani’s heat protector Gloss Veil was then applied. This product protects the hair as well as giving great shine while also helping the style to stay in place for last longer. After the pressing process was completed Ingrid then gave Tamaras hair a final boost and a healthy shine by spritzing KeraCare Gloss Sheen for the final look.
We recently caught up with Tamara who tells us that a week later the style is still in place and looks perfect. To help keep your style in place like Tamara’s, we recommend that you wrap your style at night with a silk bonnet to keep the shape and body.
We love a good transformation story here at Silk Trends and we hope you guys do too. 🙂
