    Heat training = heat damage

    But you can have dry straight hair too. You can have a looser curl pattern and you hair depending on the texture can be on the dryer side. For instance, Beyonce showed her "real" hair and you saw how coarse her hair texture was even with a looser curl pattern, and she uses bleach and permanent color!

  • @girlbrittneygirl

    There's only two types of hair that exist, Straight or kinky.

  • @girlbrittneygirl

    But if you're using a heat protectant as well as a leave-in conditioner, shouldn't be okay to use 450 degrees for the textures that require it?

  • @girlbrittneygirl

    Using mechanical tools causes more damage to hair than any heat tool, or chemical service can.

    isn't your hair texture becoming looser a sign of molecular damage of the hair shaft? heat training only sounds like hair damage in the long run to me… the sebum travelling your your shaft easier than it would than it was curly/ coily makes complete sense in helping your hair grow and retain length better its probably one of the reasons straighter/ looser hair types grow quicker or retain length much better than curlier and coiler types. However it seems like a trade off to me… i prioritise healthy hair first. dgmr, i still straighten my hair.. once every 2 years or so and its great for seeing the condition of the ends of your hair as well as retaining length (i've seen my hair grow quite quickly during these silk presses!). But I don't think over relying on it is the answer for my goals and anyone else who truly wants healthy hair. After all — heat training modifies the natural structure of your hair to aid in length retention… same way bleach modifies the structure of your hair to lighten the colour and relaxers do to keep your hair straighter for longer. You can use all the great technologies and treatments to strengthen your hair against that damage, because that's what it is…

    I feel like while lots of people will learn how to take care of their hair in a straightened state they still won't be able to take care of it while its in its natural state in a way that can keep it moisturised and retain length. they wouldn't of had the practice, especially after being so used to having their hair 'heat trained' for so long. So when it's time to slow down on the heat because your hair health tells you so most wouldn't know what to do or how to keep it up as routine. leading to them continuing to straighten their hair despite you hair needing the (probably more than a years long) break or doing the big chop again.

    These are just my thoughts when i was listening to the heat training technician. Its all each to their own, but i thought it was some food for thought to consider 🙂

    I HIGHLY recommend the haircare line Hydrathermal Naturals if you heat train/straight natural. It's black owned and the owner uses her own products exclusively and she grew her hair from twa to beautiful healthy bra strap length the whole time wearing her hair straight and using her products. She's 4a/b too.
    I use the products and they are BOMB. Super soft, silky, strong and moisturized hair. The products really do protect the integrity of the strands while straightening.

    I'm over anything heat. Got a silk press for mother's day and she burnt my hair! My curls are gone and I can't get that freaking burnt smell out of my hair!!

    I have 3c/4a but no actual curls or spirals. All of my curls are waves if that makes sense. I've been doing monthly silk presses since 2020 and my hair is only starting to show signs of "damage" now in 2024. And only because my new apartment has hard water and my hair hasn't been able to reached full conditioned status in between presses. It's all good! I still don't mind having a little damage. It looks good and healthy af.

  • @traciewarren1070

    Great topic!!! Love how you always include questions we have plus bring in professionals to provide insight! I’ve been natural for over 20 years, pretty much since I graduated from college and decided I preferred highlighted hair to relaxed hair. In the early 2000s the natural community was not as vibrant as it is now, especially where I lived so it made sense for me to blow dry and flat iron my hair. I have never quite caught on to the hair typing so I go with what my parents always said about hair, “all hair is good hair” My hair is fine and medium textured, I suppose plus getting highlights does seem to relax my curl a bit. Anyhow with all the blow drying and flat ironing plus color every 6 weeks that my hair goes through, it is pretty healthy and my curls always come back.
    Once again, thanks again for this very timely and informative video!!!

    Why would she recommend a mild relaxer? 🙄

    OMG I actually discovered that Aussie Total Miracle a few months ago. It's bomb! Very good light protectant. Not sticky, just supportive of flat ironing effect.

    This was a great informative video and I really appreciate you for sharing. ❤ I'm getting ready to flat iron my curly hair and this really helped a lot. 😊💓

  • @dittocloud720

    yeah nahh Loll. I understand what they are saying but I cannot. The most I'm going to do is 1 silk press per year, and that's just so i can get my hair evened out.

    Fantastic advice for if I ever straighten my tightly coiled fine stranded coloured treated dense afro hair!!!! Thank you so much😊😊

    My mother straighten me and my sisters hair growing up I guess our hair was heat trained all our lives. I discovered my curls later in life but my hair still was curly.
