Straight Hair, Don’t Really Care…

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:


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.


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,

Straight Hair!

Hello everyone! I’m writing to you today about my flat iron experience. Prior to taking Hairfinity, I wanted to flat iron to see where I was at with my hair length. Of course, I could have just stretched it, but where’s the fun in that?
So I started on freshly cleaned and conditioned hair. This is what my hair looked like at 80% dry.


Let me tell y’all, shrinkage is the devil’s most useful weapon. If I don’t stretch my hair right out of the shower, it will shrink all the way up to my neck!
I then blew my hair out. I used a concentrator nozzle and I am sure that that helped me get it so straight and flat. I tried to get it as straight as I could before the flat ironing process.




I then went through each of my four sections and began to flat iron, piece by piece. I went over each section twice. I WISH I would have done the chase method because my ends came out a little rough. I didn’t cut any ends because although they were rough, I didn’t see any split ends. Final results?


I can’t wait to reap the results from Hairfinity!
Oh! My hair is 10 and a half inches on the right side in the back. It’s the same on the left side in the back. At the top, it’s 9 and a half. Seems like those wigs have been protective styling and doing their job! 🙂

Until next time,
Mandisa ❤️
