In Reply to: Re: Is it better to blow or air dry straightened hair? posted by Denise Kingsley on December 31, 2008 at 7:15 am:

The stylist who advised blow drying does not do my hair regularly. I was consulting with her about getting a Rejuvinol BKT. I think she does mostly traditional (sodium hydroxide) relaxers but I'm not sure. She does seem quite knowledgable, though.

I do remember reading somewhere else that it's better to blow dry TR'd hair.

There's so much contradictory information out there that it's very confusing. Lots of experts out there but they all have different opinions.

The TR'd part of my hair is not breaking but it feels dry and straw-like. I don't think this is the fault of the TR styist because he is an expert/educator in the field.

I used to get beautiful results from Liscio but the last two have not turned out well. My last TR stylist had very little experience, but my hair turned out great two times in a row. Then, two years ago, I had major breakage following my last TR with her. I thought that it was due to her inexperience, but now I am just thinking that my hair may look/feel stronger than it really is. It is becoming increasingly grey and wiry and I think that's the heart of the problem.

I don't think a strand test would have helped in this most recent case because my hair did not start to feel really damaged until about two months after the TR. I don't think I did anything to abuse my hair (heat or products, either). Just moisture, a bit of protein, shampooing 2x/week, and minimal styling.

I think the root of the problem (not to pun) is that my hair texture has changed from course and wavy (when the TR worked) to rough and wiry (its current texture).

I've been using high-quality moisture intensive products, including Nigelle B+, Kerastase Oleo Realax, and Nigelle HY, Shu Uemuera and Nigelle HY, but it's like my hair just doesn't want to absorb moisture, especially on the top layer.

I've done blood tests to see if I have thyroid/hormone issues and everything's fine. I eat well and take good care of myself.

My new growth feels strong, but very wiry, epecially near the crown where I'm about 70% grey. I guess I just need to find the right straightener to address this kind of hair texture.

Does BKT work well on wiry-textured hair, or will it just make it feel stiff? Between the two bad Japanese experiences I actually did do a few BKT's. I felt that they made my hair stiff. But now, in retrospect, I'm thinking that this may have been due to the Japanese. My hair definitely looked better then than it does now, at any rate. It at least was smooth and shiny (albeit too stiff and straight).

Sorry for the long-winded message. I guess my question is: what are the best products/treatments/ styles/straighteners for wiry, grey hair.
