First I did a thorough detangling using Aussie Moist and some left over Pantene condish. I shampooed with Pantene Smooth and dc'd with Nexus Keratin and Black rice mask. I lightly sprayed on ORS heat protectant to each of my 4 sections. Then I blowdried with a brush (my hair was surprisingly soft and straightish at this point). Then I flatironed and did the chase method with my denman. I did 2 passes per section. Maybe my hair is rough because I haven't used commercial products in over 8 weeks? I've also been exclusively wearing wash n'gos for the past month.
