I’m so happy! I had my first successful flat iron session that didn’t result in poofy hair or bushy ends. I used It’s a 10 Miracle leave in for a curlformer set to stretch my hair in lieu of using a blow fryer.
This morning I flat ironed with Mizani Iron Curl and my 1 ½” Sedu Revolution. The downside of flat ironing is it reminds me of how low density my hair is: nono: It’s easier to fake the thickness funk with a braid out, curlformer, or flexi rod set, I’m praying that my curl pattern comes back on my next wash day, and that I didn’t create any heat damage. I was trying to go no heat in 2014, but I wanted to test out the Mizani Iron Curl.
I called myself dust/trimming exactly at the time of the spring equinox, which was 10:57 am MDT. If I’m only going to dust/trim four times a year, I might as well test out this Moroccan/lunar method. I dust/trimmed to maintain a dust/trim schedule and healthy ends, not aesthetics. I’ll start dust/trimming for aesthetics once I meet my hair length goals. I’m in a braid out most of the time, so you can’t tell that my hair is not perfectly even etc. In fact, it’s better for Ms. Celie braids that it’s not perfectly even.
Now, I have dust/trimmers remorse. DS stated, “Your hair looks shorter!”
My growth rate picks up during the late spring and summer, so hopefully a miracle happens, regarding making TBL. WHIP is probably more realistic at this point.
Here is a pic of the curlformer set and flat iron job:
I may relax sometime next month and that will be my end of the year length check for this challenge. This will also be my last challenge.
pearcey You know what I think it depends on where you live also if they're relaxed straiten etc you might see a long haired natural and just overlook her cause your running around doing your thing.^LOL I NEVER see any longer hair ladies of color in the mall, etc... The majority on this board is still the minorit IRL, I suppose...
Hey Ladies. So I straightened my hair and frankly, I'm not happy. My ends are not the business and IDK my hair just looks a bit all over the place. On top of that it took forever. I thinks I'm itching for a change-like a haircut. I want some color too. I'm in the mood for a change. I'm giving myself a week to see if the feeling passes but I doubt it. We'll see. So here's a current length check.
