My 9-5  life is in corporate american, so Monday – Friday my style is pretty basic. I look forward to the weekends where I can have a bit more fun with my clothes and hair.  This summer the weather in the south has been brutal,  we spent most of the summer with temperatures well above 90°.  With the high temperatures and humidity, my blowouts don’t last as long . I’m always looking for fun ways to keep my hair off my face in styles that don’t need excessive heat. 
  CHI STYLING LINE EXTENSION
For some reason this summer I have been all about incorporating braids into my styling. Braids are quick, easy and add a nice bit of texture to any style.  If you have followed me for a few months I have mentioned trying to limit heat styling.  If I do blow dry and flat-iron I want to try to stretch that style for a few days.  Farouk Systems manufacturer of  the CHI  product line, has introduced some new products that are perfect for styling with texture and prolonging a blow out. 
 
CHI STYLING LINE EXTENSION
The CHI Styling Line Extension includes a Dry Shampoo, Dry Conditioner, Texturizing Spray, Spray Wax, Re-workable Taffy, Styling Cream Gel, and Finishing Pomade.  With this new line we still get the heat protection CHI is known for with the added benefit of products that help shape and mold the hair and offer killer shine. 
 CHI Finishing Pomade
Earlier this week I straightened my hair using the Ultra CHI 1″ tourmaline ceramic flat-iron. This flat-iron is a beast. The Ultra CHI heats up quickly to 392° (temperature is not adjustable), and provides even heat distribution.  Penetrating hair from the inside out, the Ultra CHI cuts down on frizz and static while adding moisture and shine. A flat iron that doesn’t have adjustable heat used to scare me. I have been using CHI irons for over 10 years, and with proper hair prep I haven’t had a problem with burning my hair.  I partitioned off my hair and flat ironed in thin sections, with this iron one quick pass is all I needed.

This week was a bit hectic and I didn’t really have time to fuss with my hair too much. I almost can’t believe with the heat and humidity I was able to go several days on this flat iron without washing my hair. My hair typically isn’t oily which helps allow me to push my wash days off a bit. To give my hair a bit of a refresh I used the CHI Dry Shampoo and Dry Conditioner on day three.  A few sprays was all I needed, then I brushed the product through, it did not leave any buildup on my hair. 

*CHI Dry Shampoo: A dry cleansing spray composed of a waterless formula that absorbs excessive oil and rejuvenates the scalp between shampooing while preparing it to be styled at any given time.  Without the use of water, spray the dry shampoo directly onto the roots of dry hair and massage in scalp and style as desired.
*CHI Dry Conditioner: A dry conditioning spray composed of a waterless formula used to condition hair ultimately providing radiant shine.  Without rinsing, spray the dry conditioner from mid hair to ends and style as desired.

My roots and edges started puffing up and reverting back to curly just a bit.  I wanted a style that would last another day or even two, and being tired of ponytails and buns I went with some braids.  For this style I wanted lightly textured braids with hold. I applied a bit of the re-workable taffy to the length of the hair and a bit of the finishing pomade to my edges.  The taffy is a great product, it’s actually not sticky at all and didn’t dry to a yucky finish. The It provides a flexible, workable hold.

*CHI Reworkable Taffy: A non-sticky taffy used to effectively alter and redefine a multitude of styles with optimal definition and texture while providing a strong hold and medium shine. Place small amount on hands and distribute through hair as desired.
*CHI Finishing Pomade: A light hold, finishing pomade used to control fly-a-ways and eliminate frizz while providing high shine to achieve a well-polished look. For achieving definition, apply small portion of pomade on damp hair. To maintain frizz, apply small portion on dry hair.

 Textured Braids with CHI haircare
This style was simple.
I started by sectioning off some hair in the middle and loosely braiding to the scalp.  I took the length of the braid and twisted it into a top knot, securing with a few bobby pins.  On each side of my head I braided a small section of hair and pinned back under the nape. 
 
The CHI STYLING LINE EXTENSION is available in stores and salons now.
