It's definitely NOT because I flat ironed that 's for sure! I think it's got way more to do with doing the right things for my hair like finding a balance between the protein and the moisture. I did use a reallly good heat protectant yesterday that I haven't been using in awhile so I'm sure that helped prevent the damage from the flat iron from being worse than it could have been. I only flat ironed to see how long it was gettingh.
That's another thing! I can't believe how fast my hair is growing since I stopped using sulfates. It would have taken almost twice as long for my hair to grow as much as it has in the past four months when I was using sulfate shampoo!
