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!
