Despite the crappy way I felt this past weekend, I managed to straighten my hair. I enjoyed it. It seemed to be full of body, I have learned to limit my products. I will update you guys on what I use now. My hair routine is stupid simple. I haven’t trimmed my ends in months! I have gotten over the scissor happy phase, and decided I will trim when I need it, and so far so good. I still use my Croc Infrared Flat Iron at a 410 degree tempature, and before flat ironing, I do blowdry my hair on “cool”. I always wash and deep condition before flat ironing. I have NEVER, I repeat, NEVER flat ironed on dirty hair. As for my length, if my curl is pulled out, it reaches maybe a 1/2 inch past my bra, so maybe another 2 inches or so, and I would be midback or braising it? But you know, it’s ok. My husband watched me flat iron my hair, and he just shook his head. “Looks tiredsome” is what he said. Lol, yes, it was!
