Hi! I am Liz Muller from Liz’s Hair Design in Hollywood, Florida. We were speaking about how we are going to straighten Nicky’s hair and sometimes the roots are not quite done or the person does not have a relaxer in their hair. African-American hair could be relaxed or it could be natural; and if it is not relaxed or if it is natural or the roots need to be done we use a straightening comb to the hair. And just by pushing into the hair like this, putting the comb real close to the roots, her hair has been relaxed; so I do not need to bring it all the way straight down. I just want to use it in the areas that have not been relaxed to give it a really straight look, to make those roots real straight. Because she needs a relaxer we put it in a stove like this and we heat it up. Okay and we actually test these irons like, as I said, we want to test the pressing combs all the time because you can burn the hair off and you can make the hair melt. We do not want something like that to happen so we always test our irons, taking the iron out and putting it here close to the towel, going back and forth like this. And then we are going to proceed to go ahead and put it in the hair - always checking making sure the iron is not too hot for the client and you do not burn the client.
