This is the result of my braid-out. My hair didn't keep the bend. It was a bit stiff.. This afternoon I cut about 2 1/2-3 inches of my hair off. Heat damage is no joke. My hair and heat doesn't mix lol... lesson learned.I re-washed my hair and used Organic Root Stimulator's Hair Mayonnaise as my deep conditioner and two-strand twist/pin curled my hair. I might wear a twist out tomorrow. Starting over, or almost all over stinks but I'd rather my hair be short and healthy than long and unhealthy.
Also, when I was washing my hair it took awhile to get the heat protectant off of my strands. I had to apply shampoo about 4 times before I could get a good lather and hair to revert back to the curls.
So sorry about the heat damage! You have been growing your hair out for such a long time.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jen! Yes, smh! God willing, I will grow it back to the length I had or even longer.Delete
Oh no... sorry to hear that.ReplyDelete
Well, it's a journey. We learn from our mistakes and keep going.
You are right..short and healthy is better than long and unhealthy
Thanks Tinuke! You're right... It is all a part of the journey :-)Delete
Flat ironing natural hair is like Kryptonite to Superman.ReplyDelete
Just say no to drugs, I mean, flat ironing.
Lol,JW I've learned my lesson:-)ReplyDelete
I am just seeing this and I was lucky to duck any heat damage on my December flat iron style. I did it after 3 1/2 yrs of no flat ironing. Although I do now see wearing my hair straight as an option. I still do not want to play with fire and eventually get burnt.ReplyDelete
Hey Vetsnatural! Yes, I hear you! I'm glad you did not get any heat damage. Did you go to a professional or did you do it?Delete
