So I have been wanting to flat iron my hair for a while. While my energy is back, I figured I’d go for it before I lose my energy before I get into the third trimester.
I started with washing with John Master’s Bare Shampoo. Ill review this after my next wash day.
DC’ed with Naturelle Grow Coconut and Mango (? I hope that right but I truly forgot) deep conditioner under my steamer. It burned, as it seems my scalp is a bit dandruffy and sensitive these days, so I stayed under for 10 minutes.
I towel dried with a turbo twistie for about an hour and my hair was still tons of wet. I let my hair sit out for about 30 minutes, then added some water (it dried up a bit, a fan is blowing on me) Annabelles Perfect Blends Blueberry Cheesecake Leave-In (its a liquid spray) and it has avocado oil.
I sprayed some Inphenom Mist on top of it then combed through.
Last, I added some Dominican Magic Silk Serum.
This was me:
I added some Organix Keratin Oil right before I ironed. I used an FHI Platform this time. I set the dial between 300 and 370 hoping it was at a good 320. I liked it better than the Sedu. My hair came out much sleeker.
I know my hair is normal density, but I think its only normal straight because when it isn’t straight, I swear its high density. I got it really straight. I was very impressed. I would press the roots a few times, then pass slowly (not a snails pace though) and loosed my grip at the bottom.
The front my hair is a bit more resistant than the back, but I got it made!
DH helped me dust and Im back at a U until the V lurks its ugly head again.
I am not waist length. In the picture below, while giving you a peek at 19 week belly and boobs (not my intention), I put a hair pin at my used-to-be-waist to show you that Im still MBL. I still have about 3 inches to go. I figure I will be there by my shower or the end of the year. My shower is looking hopeful since my hair is growing like weeds right now. I have about 10 week new growth at 7 weeks post now. I think Im 7 weeks post.
DH was touching my hair, something he never does, and said it was soft.
How was your wash day?
