    L’Ange Hair Ceramic Flat Iron Aplatir Review

    lange straightening iron ceramic flat iron

    There are some moments in life when we choose to wear our hair curly, straight, long or short. I prefer to wear a straight hair when choosing weave as I can achieve many styles with it. With the L’Ange Hair Aplatir Straightener (ceramic flat iron), it is possible to curl and straighten your hair by using the same iron. 

    I start on freshly washed natural hair, dried, spritz with heat thermal protectant spray to protect my hair from any heat damage and sectioned into 2-3 small parts. Then I proceed to straighten my hair at the desired heating temperature and by dividing the already sectioned hair into smaller sections. With 2-3 passes I can straighten my natural hair to resemble a bone straight look.

    Knowing Your Hair Type And The Knowledge For Protecting It

    Your hair is unique to you, whatever the natural wavelength is, from straight, curly, wavy, coiled or kinky. Whatever the case may be, taking care of your hair is very important, it’s something that’s biologically gifted to you and is a part of your being. Your hairstyle can reflect your personality and charm, but a style can only exist if the texture of the hair is willing to be contoured and changed. That’s why a healthy head of hair starts with how you feed and treat it. Knowing how to keep it stress-free is sometimes a needle in a haystack search.

    My Transitioning Journey

    transitioning, natural hairstyles

    Rocking a ponytail hairstyle

    I recently went from transitioning to relaxed after I transitioned for 2-3 years, now that I have my hair relaxed I am considering to start my transitioning journey back natural. I miss having my hair in a high puff, twist out etc. even though I enjoy playing around with my relaxed hair but not as much how I love the versatility of my natural hair.

    Why did I start my Transitioning Journey

    My main reason for considering to start transitioning is that I am not pleased with the way my hair is done when it is being relaxed and I experience a good amount of breakage and less hair growth.

    I do have to style my hair on a regular basis, so I would buy several different styles of ponytails to pin onto my hair when I put it in one. I really do miss my high puffs and I wish to achieve it someday.

    Last Relaxer

    The last time I relaxed my hair was on the 6th of April and normally my hair would take about 6 weeks before I have a good amount of new growth, so I would say my transitioning journey started around the 9th of May. I am currently 13 weeks into my transitioning journey and so far I have only done one protective style. The first time that I transitioned my hair I had worn protective styles such as weave and braids but this time around I am giving my hair a break from weave and braids and wearing my regular ponytails and twist outs until I find someone that can style my hair as I desire.

    Did you do the big chop?
