    Smoothing your edges out

     

    TOUCH UPS on Old Curls 

    The best way to touch up your style is the re wet the hair with Hydrating Glosser. Then smooth the Curl Definer on to the hair. If you have long hair smooth the hair out with the grip of your fist. Grab from the root and pull down to straighten the hair then scrunch the hair for curls to reappear. 

    SMOOTH OUT EDGES

    My dreaded edges. They are the hardest part of my hair to deal with. They do't keep a curl, they are always frizzy. They ruin my style about 2 weeks in they look a mess. Watch the video above to see how I fix them 

     

    How I wear my hair to preserve Moisture in my hair strands 

    I always wear my hair up when I am just hanging around the house, or going to the store, or working out. Watch the end of the video to see how I put it up. The benefits are that less exposed hair strands keep moisture longer. When I did this video I had been 18 days after I first styled it. I needed to tame the edges and the middle of my head which is type 4 hair and needs lots of moisture. Also the middle of my head and the front perimeter of my head are more exposed than the rest of my head. 

    This is why I love these curl definers because if it feels dry I just bundle my hair up I guess it gets warm in there not sure. But the hair begins to feel moisturized again. Amazing!

     

     

    Wash N Go

     

    Smooth Out Method (Flat iron fingers Method)     Type 3  Hair Type 

     

    Step 1 Apply Curl Definer. Then use the Tangle Fix Brush do the SMOOTH OUT METHOD on damp hair. (Hair should already have been Cleansed and Conditioned with no products in it) You may towel dry it. Its best to work in sections use clips to separate. SEE SMOOTH OUT METHOD BELOW

    Step 2 Add Hydrating Glosser to hair after it has completely dried and curls are set. Do this After you have done the SMOOTH OUT METHOD shown below 

    SMOOTH OUT METHOD featuring the Tangle Fix Brush by Goody's 

     Use the Tangle Fix Brush to smooth the hair out. The Curl Definer works in a very unique way.When the hair shaft is moisturized with the Curl Definer then rubbed or dragged against a smooth surface such as your fingers, palms, (or the rounded corner of the tangle fix brush) with firm pressure the hair becomes smoother. It works particularly well when it is passed through the middle of two surfaces pressed tightly together. Since your body temperature is much higher than room temperature when the hair is passed between the middle of the fingers warmth is created and it instantly smooths the hair texture out.

    Think of what happens when your hair is passed between the middle of a flat iron. (Do NOT use flat iron this is a hypothetical demonstration a what is scenario) The Flat Iron has two surfaces pressed together that both give off heat. Much higher than your body temperature of course which is 98.6 degrees. The teeth of the Tangle Fix Brush works well to grip the hair, hold it taut and detangle it. When flat ironing highly textured hair it is useful to have a gadget that does all of the above so the flat iron can glide down the hair shaft for a smooth press. One gadget that comes to mind is a chase comb. 

    To do our Smooth Out Method You will be using the Tangle Fix Brush as you chase comb and the warmth and grip between your fingers as a flat iron. (pointer and middle finger)

    The hair is pictured above without the curl definer in it. The hair is pictured below with the curl definer in it. So you can see the difference between the hair with and without the product. 

     

    Picture 1. Smooth the product into the hair with warmth of hands this will moisturize and soften the hair

    Picture 2. From the root use the Tangle fix Brush to grip the hair, and hold the hair taut. Open fingers like the thongs of a flat iron and grip the hair.

    Picture 3. Glide the brush, followed by tightly Gripped fingers, all the way down the hair shaft to the tips. (pull down to straighten) 

     

    To ensure the hair is SMOOTHED OUT use your flat iron fingers over and over, hand over hand, until you are satisfied with the smoothness of the hair. Hair will look straight. 

    Now that the hair pattern is extremely elongated. Finally scrunch the hair so it can snap back into curls. Like a spring. Your shrinkage will be turned into curls. 

     When the hair is COMPLETELY DRY. Add the Hydrating Glosser. This will add volume, make hair soft and touchable (and get rid of sticky feeling if any)  

     

    "Flat Iron Fingers" Whats The big Idea?

     Flat Iron Vs Fingers or Fist 

    Sandwich the hair between your two fingers (pointer and middle finger) like it were a flat iron. Grip it tightly and pull down. The same way you would with a flat iron. Use the tangle fix brush as a chase comb to detangle the hair and hold it taut. You can also use a tight gripped fist for longer hair. 

       

    When smoothing hair out. You can also use your Fists or Thumb and pointer fingers mashed together.

    Picture 1. Fist as flat iron and Tangle Fix Brush as Chase Comb

    Model with Type 3 hair will Demonstrate. How to smooth out type 4 hair. Please stay tune the process is still the same. 

    Step 1. Hydrating Glosser. Apply to wet hair then towel dry excess. It is used to hydrate, moisturize and add slip to the hair before adding the Curl Definer. Then use the Tangle Fix Brush do the SMOOTH OUT METHOD on damp hair. See SMOOTH OUT METHOD Below

    Step 2. Curl Definer. Apply to hair while it is still damp with Hydrating Glosser (Don't let Hydrating Glosser dry out of hair) Hair has to have slip so curl definer can glide on smoothly. Curl definer goes onto slippery hair well. But hair should not be dripping wet. 

     

     Note  (Hair should already have been Cleansed and Conditioned with no products in it) You may towel dry it. Its best to work in sections use clips to separate.

    1. Smooth the product into the hair with warmth of hands this  will moisturize and soften the hair
    2. Use Brush to grip the hair, hold the hair taut and pull down to straighten.                                            
    3. Keep the hair taut and gripped all the way to the ends, follow with closed fingers all the way to the tips(avoid frizzy ends)

     

    To ensure the hair is SMOOTHED OUT use your flat iron fingers over and over, hand over hand about 3 or 4 times. or until you are satisfied with the smoothness. Hair should look straight. 

    Braid or Twist the hair you desired size in the direction you want your curls to flow.  

    ***Optional Immediately Add the Hydrating Glosser after braiding or twisting the hair. To compensate for over applying Curl Definer. This will prevent the hair from being sticky or too weighed down. (The amount you need will vary from person to person) thin, fine hair may need less, while thicker courser hair textures may need more)

     Remove Braids or Twist when hair has completely dry. Air Dry or cold dry only from hooded dryer or blow dryer. Do not use artificial heat from a blow dryer, or any other device, with Curl Definer the hair will not smooth out and curls will not set. 

     

    

     

     Hair will have more volume if you used less Curl Definer and didn't smooth your hair out as much with flat iron fingers. (Remember to do hand over hand flat iron fingers to smooth hair out more) Hair will have less volume if you added more Curl Definer and used flat iron fingers repeatedly.
