I wanted to add some pics of what I went through during my flat ironed days (only 2 weeks)…about 1 month ago.
Although it was a great change, and I received a much-needed trim….it’s not a style that I will go for frequently.
It’s hard for me to admit it but I no longer desire straight, flat hair.
First challenge I noticed was that my hair was sooo fragile! The slightest touch made me worried. I heard so many *snaps* coming from my hair when I was styling that I tried my best to leave my hair alone. (which was hard since my hair was looking and feeling good!)
I also found myself confused with what to do with my hair. It laid down straight for about 1.5 days after getting my hair done at Hair Designs by Paula …but then it started to look wavy.
So I tried to work with the waves and did a few braid-outs and used flexi-rods as well.
This method allowed my hair to have some curl.
And YES, my hair colour looked great! (btw, this colour is from about 1 year ago….I will be doing a Henna challenge in April or May to try to add some more colour for this summer)
My 2-week experience was great. Got some compliments, tried some new styles and took some pics for memory sake cuz I’m not sure when I’ll be doing this again 😦
BTW, Products used while my hair was straight include Extra Virgin Coconut oil and/or Sweet Almond oil (about a dime-size amount applied to length of hair and ends on a nightly basis) and a very small amount of Castor oil for hold with my edges.
