Curly to Straight... With Motions Hair Care

Not only is Christmas right around the corner but so is the end of the year.  WOW.  Earlier this year, I challenged myself to not flat iron my hair until January.  Everything was going all well and good until I came across a giveaway on The Style and Beauty Doctor's Instagram page hosted with Motions hair care.  They were giving away a "Curly to Straight Kit" and the itch just came upon me to go ahead and straighten my hair.  Coincidentally, I actually won the giveaway so I felt even more compelled after that! LOL

Let me just say now, that I am actually contemplating staying straight for a while.  That's how pleased I am with how well these products worked for me.  Normally, getting my hair straight is a battle that sometimes doesn't seem worth it.  After just a few days, my hair usually becomes frizzy and it all just feels like a huge waste of time.  After using these products, my mind is completely BLOWN.  Now I have not tried any other products like this so I have nothing to compare it against except what I've used from my own stash in the past.  And, let me tell you... My products have nothing against this Motions Kit.

To start, I used the Heat Styled Straight Finish Leave-In Conditioner after towel drying my hair.  I applied liberally to each section (approx 5 sections) prior to drying my hair with the blow dryer.  Using a different Leave-In Conditioner other than my Holy Grail from Miss Jessie's was a true leap of faith for me.  Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised with how well this leave-in worked.  It softened and detangled my hair just as well as my Miss Jessie's Leave-In Conditioner!  After I applied it to each section, I used a paddle brush to dispense the product through evenly.  It made blow drying each section a breeze and my hair came out so soft, silky and still felt moisturized (not dry at all)!

Next, I applied the Heat Styled Straight Finish Sealer immediately after drying each section.  I wasn't too sure about this product at first because I thought it was going to weigh my  hair down.  It's not super thick or oily but it also didn't seem to sink into my hair quickly.  Instead of immediately moving on to flat ironing (with my Sedu flat iron), I decided to lay my edges down and put my head scarf on for about an hour.  When it was finally time to straighten, my hair had actually soaked up the serum and felt amazing.  In addition, once I started flat ironing my hair the shine and smoothness provided was incredible.  My hair felt so light and bouncy, yet silky and moisturized.  I couldn't believe that I had only used TWO freaking products!!  TWO!

I've straightened my hair quite a few times since going Natural and it always comes out great.  The biggest difference this time was how easy the process was for me.  Sometimes we try to take short cuts and end up with a hot mess.  In this case, the two products I used made me feel like I was taking a shortcut but the results were far from that.  I would highly recommend these products to anyone who struggles with straightening their Natural Hair.  The Motions Heat Styled Straight Finish Products get two thumbs up from me... One for providing Heat Protection and the other for providing amazing results!

So have any of you girls tried products specifically formulated to help Naturals straighten their curly tresses?  Or are you still very scared to apply heat to your hair?  Be honest!  XOXO


  1. I have never seen such straight hair without using any flat iron. I think even best flat iron can’t give the same results without doing any damage to your hair and you have to spend a lot of time on that. I am going to purchase this product soon.
