Heat Damage or Not?
I was really nervous!!! what have I done to my hair!!! Heat damage !!
Where do I start??? Hmmmmm ok so I lasted 3 days and I was over the straight look until I get more length I just wanted to see where I am in my journey to retain length. Since my hair was "practically" straight I gave myself a trim, I saw a few split ends, but I took care of them. Hopefully I didn't trim too much, but OH WELL! It's over and done now :)
I almost lasted more days , but once I got into the shower my hair was talking to me and said : I want something to |"DRINK" so I listened to my hair and it felt sooooo GOOD!! At first BSL sounded impossible. I now believe I can get there.
What I used on my hair ? Grapeseed oil and applied just a little amount of the ic fantasia heat protectant. I ran the flat iron twice using the "Chase method" but If I would have ran it through a third time with the iron temp higher I know I could have gotten it BONE STRAIGHT but ok ok I was SCARED!! but I am still inlove with my first FLAT IRON results :)
How I got my Curls Back?
Well...Well... I didn't have my normal Deep Conditioning products availabe so I shampooed my hair with "Creme of Nature " and I "reached for my Herbal Essence Hello Hydration but I was running out.... so I reached for my Herbal Essence Totally Twisted. I let both conditioners stay in my hair for almost 3 hrs and covered my hair with a "Target plastic bag" haaa yep I was out of everything ..even a shower cap!!
After 3 hrs of Deep Conditioning yep I said it... I rinsed my twist without disturbing them and MY hair was sooooooooooooooooo soft ! it's been a very long....... time since my hair was that soft maybe 6 months!! I could rub my fingers through my "KINKS " oh and I have it on tape I "Shall" post soon!
