I haven't straightened my hair in ____________________(fill in the blank)...

I'd say like about 1and a half to 2 months since I flat ironed it. I usually only flat iron or special occasions.
I had been straightening my hair for the past week because I got so fed up with my curls. The last time I straightened it was about 9 hours ago, but as soon as I did it, I gave up and washed it to get my curls back. It goes puffy-straight and looks terrible... Can't win either way lol.

Hair Regimen












I'm 16 and I've only ever had my hair strightened 3 times. Once when I was about 9 because I begged my mom, once because a friend wanted to see if it would work, and about 7 months ago when I got my hair cut. The styelist said it would be easier to cut stright......not so sure that was a good idea. Sure she used a chi and it looked awesome, but I'm pretty sure that curly hair should be cut curly, not stright.

I think the reason i hardly ever strighten my hair is because it takes hours upon hours to do, I don't even own a strightener, and becasue I can't do it myself because I just don't have the paitiense lol
so i'm not quite a teen anymore (almost 21) but i just wanted to chime in and say that it's been about 5 and a half months since i've last straightened! i'm to the point where i'm almost tempted to throw my straightener away! i just don't want to use it anymore =)

I haven't straightened my hair ever, only because, I don't have the products nor the tools to do it. Lol @ myself.
probably 3 weeks or maybe even 4....eep
lol, I just realized that it hasn't even been a month yet since I went natural and joined this place!
Unless you count straightening your bangs, I did that yesterday :V
A little over three years
i haven't straightened my hair in 5 days.... :/
i kinda give up straightening in the summer becuz my hair just frizzes and curls up anyways, so why bother?
about a year!


but....... i just got a new haircut and im DIEING to see how it is now!


so i'll probably straighten it in about 2 weeks


though it takes an hour and a half to straighten...
i would say 16 months?
and it was only because i was dying it and needed to get the roots reeeally good.

It's been 2 years since i've straightened my hair, and it was only a little bit of side-bangs, but it's been about 4 years since i've fully straightened my hair!
over two years, but even then it was only twice 'cause mates wanted to see what it looked like
