As some of you may recall, we have been growing out her texturizer for almost two years now and I am happy to report that she is about 95% natural! As you can see here:
|Christmas Day 2012|
I straightened her hair yesterday, for the first time in about a year, and I plan to get the rest of the texturized cut off…maybe. Lol. Her hair has grown A LOT over our journey, but since I've been cutting off the texturizer gradually it is still around the same length that it was before. See the comparison below:
I washed and conditioned with our usual products and banded her hair for about 4 days. In the pic below you can see some of the banded sections, the hair after I removed the bands, and the bottom row that I have already straightened.
To straighten, I used ION Heat Protectant Spray and a super nice CHI flat iron this time around. At night I just put it into 3 loose twists and put her satin bonnet over it, and below are the awesome results:)
