A few weeks ago I was bored and decided to get my hair straightened. It just so happened to be my 6 month mark, so it was good for a length check also. I went to Wal-Mart and saw a black girl with natural hair, so I figured that she would be able to straighten my hair well. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
After washing my hair, she proceeded to put me under the hooded dryer to have my hair dry. With my tightly coiled hair, I knew this was a recipe for disaster and asked her to blow dry my hair instead. She did, but I wasn’t really satisfied with her process. I had to direct her on how to straighten my hair and she was the stylist!
I asked for a trim also and of course she gave me a cut. When I left there, I felt like an old aunt or grandma. I was definitely not pleased.
I kept it straightened for a few days. I bought some small rollers from Sally’s so I wouldn’t have to put heat on it daily. My bangs are pretty short, so I twisted the front and this is how I wore it.
When I washed my hair, all my curls came back with no problem. I used the Keracare Hydrating Shampoo and the Aubrey Organics GPB conditioner. I used that conditioner because it us full of protein and I always like to infuse protein back in my hair after using lots of heat because it helps my curls come back. My hair was super soft afterwards and I was happy with my hair again.
