Can shampoo/conditioner expire?
I pulled some old Mizani shampoo & conditioner from the back of the cabinet (I think I’ve had them for about 3 years. Eek!). They appeared “safe” to use, and had no weird smell, so…
I straightened my hair with them.
4-STEP PRE FLAT-IRON PROCESS
- Shampoo’d with Mizani Thermasmooth Shampoo.
- Deep conditioned with Mizani Thermasmooth Conditioner (15-20 minutes).
- Rinsed clean. My hair felt very soft, stretched, and moisturized. It also had a bit of a sheen.
- Blow dried, after misting with Fantasia Heat Protector.
Before flat-ironing, I applied a dab of Fekkai Glossing Cream. To flat-iron, I just segmented 1-inch sections of hair, clasped at the root, pulled, and when I came to the last inch or so of hair, I twisted the iron to curl the ends.
I need a smaller flat iron. My hair toward the back is too short to clasp between the plates.
Not sure what to do with these sides. ‘Cept shave them off more.
I brushed them down with a soft boar bristle hairbrush.
My hair felt good. Soft & bouncy. I liked it.
…24 (well, less than 24) hours later. More like 19.
It felt icky and coated with product.
My hair made me feel like yesterday’s efforts were all for naught.
How long does your straightened (naturally curly) hair last?
What techniques/products do you use to maintain the look & prevent reverting?
