After the Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole Paul & Joe Post, I was emailed a few times asking what styling products and tools I use to straighten my hair.
Here are the products I use:
The Orange wood or Luxor Citrus Nylon and porcupine boar bristle 4 1/2" diameter jumbo brush.
I learned how to do my hair while I was on tour with Cirque du Soleil; before that, I would go to the salon two to three times a week for a blow dry.
This jumbo size brush is the best styling brush I've ever used; grabs onto the hair, giving the perfect amount of pull, without causing breakage, and smoothing each strand.
Besides needing good pull, the next key to a good blowout is heat and speed.
I've tried many flat irons, Babyliss, Solano (I think it was called Blue Sapphire), CHI (not a fan) and I was using a T3, before my friend and stylist (Melvyn) gifted me a HAI Flat Iron, and I've converted ever since.
I used to work the flat iron throughout all of my hair, but in the last few years, I just smooth out my roots at the front to prevent any frizz that may creep in throughout the day (and, it works). If I want my hair bone straight or just smooth out little bits, HAI does the job while keeping my hair soft and shiny.
I've been asked to do a post on what hair products I use when it's curly or straight, and that is coming soon. If you have any questions, please leave a comment or email me.
