Well it took me 3 entire hours.
Not even counting the 2 hours I spent blow drying.
After I was finished I put each section in to 2-3 pin curls and got this wavy look.
I think it came out well going from that on the left to the awesome smooth hair on the right.
This time my hair does not feel dry or hard on the ends and I believe that’s because of that super moisturizing avocado and honey deep conditioning mask I did the other day. I washed and conditioned my hair with Aussie Moist and then did a black tea rinse and had to re-condition after that. Sectioned and two strand twisted my hair and let it air dry for about two days before I used the blow dryer to stretch the roots. I used avocado oil as my heat protectant since it has a super high smoke point, (like 520 degrees or something.) and straightened with the flat iron at 340 – 360 degrees. I tried to do each section small enough where I would only have to do one pass with the flat iron but that didn’t happen lol and that’s ok. I’ve noticed my hair is a lot tougher than I thought and can really hold and take some heat. Lucky me.
Anywhoo I think it came out really well.
I hope this is my last time using heat for the month. once I get munnies I can put my hair into twists, but until then, straight it is.
Now I have to get ready for class, hopefully this humidity doesn’t ruin all my hard work…
Wish me luck! xoxo
So ladies, do any of you have a ridiculously long hair care routine or ritual?
