It's that some you have said you only straightened it because of your classmates because that's what happened to me. I told my friends, I wasn't gonna straighted it anymore, and they kept bugging me to straighten it because it looks so pretty straight. But I like it curly now, I got so used it. Once in a while it's good for change, but curly is the best!

p.s. Lody I'm in impostor too. I'm also 20.

I wanna say about 10-11 months, I have a Sedu straightener, and used it religiously for a long, long time, doing some really bad damage to my hair, it's been sooooo much better, softer, and less broken!!!! lol

I haven't straightened my hair in 2 years. Because I have so much hair, it's so much of a hassle to straighten it. The hassle to straightens outweighs the urges of other people to straighten it, thus I don't straighten it.

In other words, I'm too lazy to straighten.

I have gone 4 months without straightening my hair!
I made the biggest mistake of my life last May and cut off my long beautiful hair!
So I mostly quit straightening it cuz it was to short and I couldnt straighten it without burning myself.
Now I just love my naturally wavy hair and I cant wait for it too grow back

Hmm I haven't straighten my hair since homecoming in october so about 4 months. I love my hair straight but it refuses to stay straight. I had it professionally flat ironed at a salon for my homecoming in the morning and by the time i was ready to go to homecoming i had to touch up a couple of places myself. It's not worth it to try and get my hair to stay straight.

It's been two years. At the time it was crazy long and took between two and three hours. :P

One of my friends wanted to do it last weekend but we didn't. I kinda don't want to because the current hair on my head has NEVER BEEN STRAIGHTENED. Or shampooed. Or brushed. Which is crazy.
Proudly CG since 8/10/06 - the story of my hair!

Length: almost BSL wet

Well it was 7 months, but then I ran out of time, needed it to look good for an event, & caved. I also brushed it while blowdrying... over a week later & I'm still paying for that mistake!

I straightened my hair the past two days I just was having bad hair days left and right and knew my hair would look good if it was flat-ironed... but now I'm wondering if it was worth it because when I diffused my hair this morning it just fell all flat. Blahhh!

Also, I'm 22, didn't realize this was in the teen forum, haha!

Two weeks! Since it's winter I have to wet my hair every morning if I want to wear it curly, and that's freezing! So I usually just flat iron it. ):
I'm growing my hair from chin length to mid-thigh length!
