Let's Iron Things OutFriday, March 01, 2013
I am one of those women who is gifted with big, unruly, wavy hair. Having silky smooth straight hair has been my frustration, but I have grown a bit fond of my natural hair as I grew older. I figured, I can straighten my hair in the hair salon anyway by having it blown dried straight. I can't do my own hair to save my life.
But going to the salon all the time when I have some event to go to has sort of been an inconvenience because it eats up a lot of my time. That's when I told myself I had to go and teach myself how to straighten my own hair once and for all.
This is me (excuse the no makeup look, I wanted to keep the focus on my hair for this post). I just washed my hair with shampoo and loaded up on conditioner. I learned from my hairstylist that skipping the conditioner will add volume and can help with the longevity of curls, so I used tons of conditioner so that my hair can be "weighed down". Of course, these are just guesses.
