I think my hair is already loving the colder weather. My hair always goes through some things in the Fall, then it flourishes in the Winter. It’s been feeling very moisturized lately. I realized that my hair soaks up a lot of oil when it’s freshly washed, so I make sure to oil it thoroughly so it has more than enough to absorb.
I think that as my hair grows, the texture is changing. I feel like my curls are loosening a bit. Maybe because it’s usually stretched by me bunning it.
I’m back to bunning everyday. I took a few days off from bunning for Thanksgiving and all, but that’s it. I have hair goals to reach. I’ve been taking my prenatal vitamins everyday, you would think I was actually pregnant. LOL. They’re actually smaller and easier to swallow than my regular multivitamins, so that’s a plus.
I’m well on my way
I randomly decided to straighten my hair yesterday. I had been tossing up the idea in my head for a little while and yesterday I just took the plunge. I was careful to put a heat protectant in it. Of course I have a truckload of products like that from when my hair was relaxed.
It was pretty easy to blow out. I was soooo surprised by how long it really is. My hair isn’t short at all! I guess with all of the shrinkage and twisting, it always appears shorter. I used a curling iron after I blow dried it to straighten it a little more and to curl the ends. My ends absolutely do not curl. My ends are still bushy. (Remember my bushy ends from shortly after I did my big chop? …still there). As soon as I straightened it, it started to revert.
When I was done, I just pulled it back into a bun. No surprise there! LOL. I wrapped it in the night and thought that maybe wrapping it would smooth my ends a bit. No ma’am! My hair has always been resistant and that hasn’t changed. Resistant to relaxers, colors and anything else I tried. My hair is super uneven. I knew one side was shorter than the rest of my hair, but I didn’t know it was THAT much shorter.
No, I won’t be straightening my hair again anytime soon. There was no point. Today, I went to the gym and ran and that was the end of my hair. Needless to say, I washed all of the product out of it and put it right back in my trusty bun… with my bun maker!
