Learn how to protect and safely straighten your hair and see how you can trim your hair to remove split ends. (Warning: If you do not feel 100% comfortable using cutting shears, or are unsure about how much of your hair to trim, you need to see a professional stylist in your area.)
The beauty of this method is that it works on multiple natural hair types (type 3 and 4) and it is a great way for transitioners to blend new growth with relaxed ends without damage. I hope this tutorial helps you get beautiful, lasting results!

Total style time for this method is about two and a half hours depending on how fast your hair dries and how quickly you can straighten your hair.
Keep and Care:
To preserve this style, you can do a traditional wrap around your head and secure with a satin scarf, or pin curl sections and cover with a bonnet.
