Heat protectants are a gimmick??
:( I use the treseme heat protector and have notices a difference... A huge one really...

thornbery7 said...

thanks! Time for some expeirmenting!

kandee johnson said...

for the most part heat protectants are a joke, some really do help add moisture, they put more oils in your hair mostly, a good conditioner can help with that too!

Yay for ghd's (a friend of mine has one), they are awesome!!!!!
I can't wait til my hair gets a little longer (stuck in bob land) so I can style with the straightener. Working with sponge rollers for now :(.

Also, thanks for the tip about the heat protectors because I've been looking for a good one but now I don't have to! yay!

Heat protectors are great! Well, actually, just a good leave in conditioner that doesn't weigh down the hair is way better to me. :)

Kandee, my straightener isn't shaped right for curls. :( Can you teach me how to use hot rollers? PLLEEEASE!! I've always wanted to know how to use the bigger ones to get some bounce and volume.

Sweet Jesus! I have been trying to curl my hair with a flat iron and now I see why it wasn't working before!

Thank you for this! You're great!

okruch said...

Yay! I totally loved your hair in the hello kitty contest video! Thank you so much for this tutorial! I'm so gonna try this!

Rose said...

I've always used my flat iron to do my curls, however the products advice was awesome...and plus the outtakes were totally hilarious glad I watched them haha

katekeetch said...

i do this every week and love it, it is so easy but my hair is much thicker and it takes sooo long! i always twist the curl around my finger when im done and it really bounces up. love your hair Kandee, will have to get me some wax!

here is a link for the amika ZEBRA hair straightener. I got mine in Canada for 120$ this one is more expensive but you can see how awesome it isss!

great tuitorial. i haven't tried this yet. i'm thinking about getting the instyler. any opinions?

ILuvMooz said...

Awesome... thanks for the great tips!

Dana said...

Wow! Thanks! I think you have amazing hair..my hair is super thin, but I seem to be able to get lots of volume and do tons more hair styles then girls with thick hair! We have to look at all the positives!! Right?! Have a great day!!

LilSisOfaMarine said...

I love it! Your hair is beautiful... I wish I was able to do this with my hair but it's wayyyy too thick. I've been to salons all over the NW and also in the L.A. area and every single person I've been to tells me I have the thickest hair they've worked with. My hair holds curl well but not w/my flat iron. I've already tried this :( dang it! I'm glad it works for you though!!! How is your leg?

Silvia_A said...

This is awesome! But where does she say anything about the heath protectant, I watched the video twice and didn't hear anything about it.

Necole E. Bluhm_WaMLady said...

@ Silvia_A :
it's mentioned on the little block on the top of the screen at the beginning when she is listing supplies needed for the look.

Elisabeth said...

Hi! Will you make a tutorial video on how do your hair in the "How To Cut T-Shirts (80's style) and My Style Inspiration" Video? :D

K.C.T. said...

Seriously, Kandee, what can you NOT do :)

Ashley said...

Isn't Kandee so youthful looking! She looks like a teen! And momshell looks young too. Yey for youthful genes!

Luv,

Melodie said...

I don't think it's fair to say that heat protectants are a gimmick. I use Redken Hot Sets and it makes a WORLD of difference in my hair. I wouldn't style my hair with any hot tool without using it. Great tutorial. Not sure it would work with my naturally thick and curly hair, though. Bummer.

Christine said...

im going to try this out tomorrow, thank you for this video Kandee <3

GHD is, hands down, the best flat iron out there. Using it for curling, making waves, AND straightening shows that it is definitely worth the investment. About the heat protectants...it does seem like a gimmick, but they should be used. To prove it, just spray some on one hand. Then use your blow dryer and blow the heat on the protected hand. Then, do it on the unprotected hand. You should notice a BIG difference! The protected hand should take much longer to feel the heat. It's a great way to test your heat protector :) Oh! And the Sebastian Craft Clay is GREAT for oily scalps. Just rub some between your fingers and run them thru your roots. It absorbs the oil and gives you wicked awesome volume.
