Why I Love My Straightened Hair


The last time that I flat ironed my hair, I was convinced that my straight hair was out to get me. It got stuck on the clothing hook in my car, while it was down, I just knew that a spider was crawling on my shoulders, and I was constantly getting weave checked---by my family-friends! I just couldn't wait to wash my hair. However, this go around, I'm so in love with my straight hair. Here's why:

Easier detangling: I split my hair into a couple sections, gently finger detangle to remove shed hairs then moisturize and seal. Omgosh, not spending 20 minutes detangling, moisturizing and sealing is so dreamy.

Easier styling: Hello, updos, buns, and braids. My hair did exactly what I told it to do. I didn't have to worry about my edges or having to use a ton of tension to smooth my hair.

Easier Oops Coverups: It's been almost 2 weeks since I last washed. Ewww....I've got some icky oily gross hair. But, I've got errands to runs and thangs to do. So I've been sporting this threw a cute satin lined wool floppy hat. Shh...don't judge me. I'm washing later tonight! I promise.


I'm sad that my straight hair is leaving, but I'd be lying if I didn't miss my big hair! What do you love about your straight hair?

Besitos!

  1. I love my straight hair because it holds moisture better, less likely to break, easier to detangle and last but not least, you get to see your length!

    After about 2 days, I get bored with flat ironed hair because it starts to fall flat! I love me some big hair!

  2. I actually only really wear my hair straight after my relaxer and I really miss it during my stretches. That hat looks fab on you!

  3. I don't plan to straighten until December 31 for an end-of-year length check, but I am starting to crave it a bit! It is definitely easier to detangle and keep moisturized, though.

  4. I rarely wear my hair straight anymore but I always find my hair a lot easier to style when it is straight. I love your hat x

    1. I love the manageability of my straight hair but I think that I'm starting to prefer big hair! *Gasp* I really can't believe that I just said that! LOL

  5. Ur hair looks great! I testify to straight hair being sooo much easier. I always opt for it when out of my typical environment, like vacays, due to the ease.

    1. Because we vacation to the water, straight hair isn't even logical. My 2-3 straightening session would be ruined in a matter of minutes from the heat and humidity!

  7. I totally agree! Styling your hair is so much easier! I've been dealing with serious tangles, but after my visit to the salon this weekend to get a rollerset my hair made the cutest bun with ease!

  8. One more for styling with ease. Once my hair is straight, I can achieve my sleek super high bun!
