I have been natural for almost 3 years now and I am usually very apprehensive about getting my hair straightened or cut. In December 2013, I had my hair blown out, straightened and curled with a ceramic hair dryer and iron. I wanted a different look for a holiday party that I was attending. As the stylist worked on my hair, I was very excited to see the final look.
Upon leaving the salon, I was riding home in my car and notice my hair smelled burnt. Apparently the stylist had the ceramic iron set too high and my hair is suffering the consequences. After wearing my hair straight for two weeks, I washed it and immediately I could tell the difference. My hair felt much thinner than before. My hair shed excessively over the next few weeks. UGH! I feel like I always face some set back to growing my mane to my desired dream length.
What is a girl to do? Well, its back to protective styling for me. I currently have micro braids which I LOVE! I have also started using the Hairfinity Vitamins. They are supposed to increase healthy hair growth.
I will do a product review after I have finished my first bottle. Here is the link to their site: www.hairfinity.com
Lessons learned: 1. Find a stylist skilled in natural hair when its time to trim or straighten my hair. 2. Check the heat level on the stylist’s ceramic iron for myself. 3. No more trips to the Haircuttery!
