As usual, curls and kinks are always in style, but it’s nice to change it up when the weather permits. Now that the humidity is out of the way and has been replaced with crisp, cool air, it’s time to put that flat iron to work. Here are some of the best flat irons for natural hair and their fabulous results.
After letting her natural type 4 hair air dry overnight, fashion and natural hair Youtuber, TheChicNatural, used the comb chase method with her Chi Air flat iron to achieve straight tresses. She took a rat tail comb and chased her hair after she passed the flat iron through. The key to her technique was parting her hair in small sections. Her hair is sleek and shiny. The best part? She only ran the flat iron through her hair once!
According to natural hair Youtuber, Tiffani Renae, the Infiniti Conair flat iron has not caused her to experience any heat damage. Like TheChicNatural, Tiffani only passed the flat iron through her hair once. She was able to do this because she put the flat iron on the highest setting (395 degrees). After blow drying her type 4 natural hair, Tiffani went to work. Her flat iron and her technique left her hair bouncy and full.
Popular natural hair Youtuber, Mo Knows Hair, used the FHI Platform Series flat iron on her model’s type 4C natural hair. Instead of blow drying the model’s hair, Mo decided to part her hair in sections and twist it. Then she placed the model under a hooded dryer to dry. The FHI Platform Series flat iron left her hair silky and full of body.
Type 4C natural hair beauty, CallMe_Trice, used the Babyliss Tourmaline Titanium Steam flat iron to get her hair bone straight. In addition to the Babyliss flat iron, she also used The Mane Choice’s Thermal Defense Line, but CallMe_Trice believes that the steam from her flat iron is what really contributes to her getting so straight. Her hair is literally bone straight, but it’s not lacking in shine or volume.
It’s always important to keep in mind that what may work for one, may not work for another. However, it’s awesome to know that there are flat irons that will give our type 4B/C natural hair gals the sleek flat ironing results that they desire.
