We love kickstarter because you get a chance to get funding for some really awesome projects or ideas and you can even raise money for a great cause.
Well we found a kickstarter project that was pretty interesting and we can’t wait to hear your opinions on it. The project is the CWK Straightening plates and these bad boys are a genius way of getting your hair straight without a flat iron*.
Now on BHI we are always turning our wheels on inventions that might be helpful for your natural hair journey. Personally I would love if they had a portable hair dryer* that was battery operated, but I have no idea how that would even work, I just like the idea of walking around with my hair getting dry instead of sitting in one place for four hours with a huge buzzing thing on my head.
We are going to share the kickstarter video in a bit, but the tool is basically a flat clamp that stretches out your hair safely so that you can dry it under a dryer or air dry your hair flat. Afterwards, remove and voila, straight hair!
Check out the details from the website:
The CWK Straight Plates are a patent pending tool that straightens hair without the need for heat. This tool is designed for the curly, wavy and kinky* haired girls around the world. Many women have experienced damage to hair by constantly applying heat and harsh chemicals. This tool is what we all have been looking for! It is very user friendly, light weight and functional. This product should be an additional tool in every CWK girl toolbox.
With any invention you wonder what the shortcomings will be and we couldn’t think of anything immediately but we did wish that the video did show what a full head of hair looked like with the tools installed. We would also love to see the before and after on a full head of hair for all hair types. Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts, will you be supporting the project?
