My name is Natasha & I’ve become a straight hair natural…….and guess what? I love it.
A few years ago, I use to write on my blog about protecting your curls and how to get the best twist outs and how bigger hair was better hair, but lately I’ve been in a straight hair don’t care mood. Don’t get me wrong, I still take great care of my hair and value body, moisture and shine but I’m not really all about the perfect curl these days.
As many of you know, a few months back I cut my hair in a pretty drastic bob (or so I thought). I loved it then and love it even more now that I see the growth I’ve achieved from my cut in a few short months. When I first got my cut, I tried curl styles immediately from perm rods, to coils to twist outs. Nothing really gave me the life I was looking for other than when I straightened my hair for the first few times. I noticed that because of my length my wash time and straightening time was cut down drastically. I could wash, blow dry and straighten my hair in about an hour and a half. On top of that my straight hair was lasting at least 2 to 3 weeks.
Naturally, because I’ve been straightening my hair more often, I have wavier hair instead of kinky curly, but I’m totally fine with that and embrace it 100%. Some of you might call it heat damage, heat trained or some other term but I just call it healthy hair. I believe in doing what you think is best for you and your hair and right now I love it straight all day every day. All hair is not made the same and some texutres can only take a moderate amount of heat. I try not to straighten in between washes and maintain my body by wrapping my hair nightly.
My go to style while straight has been curling my hair with a 1 inch ceramic iron and wearing it with a lot of body. I think this style is classic and chic. It also lasts forever!
