Hi lovely people! I hope you’ve had an amazing week so far! This post is about my straight hair that I had for all of THREE DAYS, lol. Let’s pop the top, shall we?
I recently stayed at Irene’s for the weekend and she did my hair! She gave me the whole cannoli, ya’ll. Blow dry, trim, and straighten. I have to admit, I was very excited to see what my hair looked like. I can’t even remember the last time I straightened it. I was itching so bad, I would have done it myself (if I could find my flat iron -_-).
It took FOREVERRRRRRRRRR. Oh my God, I don’t know how people go about this process every two weeks, because I can’t deal. Blowdrying took forever, but she used a really good method and several attachments to ensure that my hair was smooth. Here’s what my hair looked like after blowdrying (so I guess this is an impromptu 2014 length check?).
As you can see, I gained a lot of length from the last time I straightened my hair, which you can easily see here: https://divinelyrooted.wordpress.com/2014/03/05/straight-hair/
BUT THOSE ENDS DOE
My ends were struggling LOL. Not really, but it was evident that I needed a trim, so this is what it looked like after the trim
Much better. The ends looked a lot more unified and not like some buck teeth LOL. I still had some length too, so I was pleased about that. My hair was about 14 inches before the trim, so now it might be around 13 inches.
BUT WAIT-THERE’S MORE! 🙂
After doing ALLA DAT, Irene then flexi rodded my straight hair for the gawds and my hair turned out flat out fabulous.
Because I didn’t want fairy tale curls (y’know, like Little Red Riding Hood or Snow White), Irene twisted the hair around the rod as she was rolling, which gave a curl that favored curling wand curls. Didn’t I slay? I know.
I washed my straight hair out as soon as I could, though. As I’m progressing in my journey, I’m learning that I really don’t like my hair straightened as much as I used to. I could do without it. I mean, yes, straight hair is fun, but I don’t have to straighten my own hair to get that experience. I love me some straight hair, just not my own LOL
Until next time,
