Spring Break came and went by way too fast. I told you all that I was going to straighten my hair and I did. It was such an emotional experience. I cried, broke-down, regretted it and then got excited. I missed my curls and then I realized that I had A TON of hair.
This is my hair washed and conditioned. I did not detangle it, I just washed it as if it were a regular day. Stretching your hair and deep conditioning it the night or two before cuts down on how much heat you have to use and makes it so much easier to manage. Unfortunately I did not get to do this, because someone was so excited; but I definitely will next time around.
Getting my hair super straight was difficult. I followed Taren Guy’s method and combed it while I straightened which helped a lot and helped me to not have to go over it multiple times. This is the first part that I straightened. My hair was a little bit past my shoulders.
I loved being semi straight, but it only lasted a few days. Maybe next time (no time soon), I’ll go to my beautician. I did cut my ends and used tons of heat protection. Being straight was fun but I missed my curls oh so much and after a wash and sleep, they came right back with no damage.
