A week ago today I had the opportunity to visit Dexina Nelson’s posh salon for a pamper session with Beautiful Textures to try out their new texture manageability system called Naturally Straight.
I was super excited and SUPER NERVOUS! I have not put any heat of any kind on my hair since officially going natural. It’s been 18 months since I had straight hair.
I was paired with Master Stylist Pam Hogan who reassured me that my curls would be fine and I would love the results. My hair appears super thick but upon touching it it’s actually somewhat fine and requires lots of TLC when handling it.
Pam said that if you have fine hair you shouldnt leave the product on for too long. If you have thick hair and no color you can leave it on the full-time. If you have fine and chemically treated hair be sure to follow the directions to a T. The pamphlet that is in the box is full of details. Also you don’t have to STRAIGHTEN your hair with the Naturally Straight System. You can just use the system to elongate your curls.
I was shocked to see the length of my hair as Pam pressed it out. She gave me a much-needed trim and instructions on how to maintain my new hair. I felt so pretty once it was all over. I honestly feel like myself again. It’s amazing how much a hairstyle plays into your personality.
I am down with week 1. The next 5 weeks the Naturally Straight promises that my hair will have these wonderful benefits:
- More defined curls
- Easier to detangle
- Hair will stay frizz free
- Straightened hair will last longer
- Hair will revert back to your normal texture in 6 weeks
We were given boxes to maintain our styles which includes shampoo and conditioner. Pam told me that a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner would work in the maintenance process. However if I choose to clarify it the hair will revert back to my super-duper curly fro. I plan on steering clear of clarifying until my 6 weeks are up! After one week my hair feels amazing. My hair is light weight, bouncy, and oh so pretty and straight. Actually it’s really too straight; I put some rollers and pin curls in it to get some volume.
I am excited to document this journey and let you know my thoughts.

Special thanks to my friends over at Beautiful Textures for an amazing experience. Be sure to check me out for the next 5 weeks as I chronicle my journal with Beautiful Textures Naturally Straight!
