Hey Divas,

It's time for a poll. I'm curious to see how many of you air dry or blow dry your hair prior to flat ironing. I only blow dry my hair when in a time crunch, which is rare. A big part of my recovery from heat damage was to give up one heat application, so it just made sense to air dry.

You'll find the poll on the right hand side of this page. If you can submit your response before the poll ends, that would be great!

I an now completely natural since January ;-) and I have straightened only twice and I have blow dried my hair once. I did air dry the first time and even using my olive oil and a lil hair grease my hair felt so brittle and dry. The same also would happen when I was relaxed and let my hair air dry before flat ironing. So I followed my old routine of blow drying while wet and then flat ironing. Only using a mixture of EVOO and Almond Oil and my hair had life. Very silky and I only go over my hair once with a ceramic flat iron. And my hair feels great really happy I went natural :-) Thx for all of your information.

Hello dprincess28
I absolutely LOVE your blog and youtube posts. They are the biggest help to me as I begin my transitioning journey.I no longer add heat to my hair but when I did I would ONLY air dry my hair and I would use this wonderful product that I would like for you to look into. It is called The Formula-Heat Styler. It made my hair appear like I had just stepped out of the salon!
Now, it claims that it can be used during the transitionary process, but I'm not sure if want to risk the outcome of my hair. Take a look at it, go to the website (, and follow them on Facebook if you would like. Tell me what you think about it if you can.

Much Love

I have only flat ironed my hair once since I've been completely natural and that one time I air dried using your flat ironing results as my inspiration. However, I did air dry my hair by putting my hair in two buns and found that in doing so, my ends ended up being very unruly. Have you ever experienced that?
