Up until now, I had only used direct heat to do a blow out .
I said I wanted to wait until year 5 to flat iron my hair but, what’s one more year!
Now, I didn’t actually do the straightening myself. The only stylist I used to go to when I was relaxed is who I contacted to flat iron my natural hair.
As you can see in the video, my hair is REALLY straight! Am I concerned about possible heat damage? Not really. I only say this because my curl pattern is naturally loose: meaning, I don’t have tightly coiled hair. Because of this, I don’t wear wash n go’s and I rarely wear twist-outs and braid-outs longer than 1 day. On a typical day, you’ll find me wearing my hair in a bun or two-strand twists.
So, for my hair to remain in a somewhat “straightened” stated wouldn’t bother me, given how I wear my hair stretched almost 100% of the time.
In my next video, I’ll show you how my hair reverted (or didn’t) back to its natural state.
What was your experience like when you straightened your natural hair?
