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

For me it's been 2 months. I had gone 5 months without straightening my hair, but I "had" to straighten it for my for my birthday =(.
This coming from a girl, who used to straightened out her hair every other day.


So, how long have you gone without straightening your hair?

I wanna straighten out my hair for new years!! But I don't think I'm going to; I'm too lazy to straighten it out now, I got used to not doing it.

Yeah, I like my curly hair now

A week . I got all my hair cut off, and my wurls hate being abovee my shoulders. The only time it stays curly now is if its in a pony/pigtails/french braided piggies....and my bangs get straightened every day.

straight isn't an option for this curly.

About a month. It would be 6, but my class kept bugging me, so I straightened it.

I hated it.

Everyone likes it better wavy, too, which is cool.

3 months. Prior to that about a year. I straightened it after a constant plea from classmates. It looked like crud because my sister borrowed my straightner and left it down south at my other sisters apartment (yeah) so i had to borrow her crummy one. I'm over straightening my hair though and gave my straightener to my sister to keep.

Oh God...um...I wanna say it's been ten months...? I did it to see the length and it was a very weird experience. I didn't really feel like myself.

Plus, my s/o forbade me to do it again.

I'm okay with it.

Around 4 years, people have straightened my hair twice in my life (once around 16 and once around 13) and all they did was make it sort of wavy and fuzzy, not straight. Other than that, that's it. My hair is very resistant to straightening, I couldn't even straighten my bangs.
But uh, I'm an impostor >.> I'm 20, not a teen anymore!

about a month...last time I did I burned myself. I think that was my hairs way of saying "put the flat iron down and step away slowly."

About 2 months, I usually only straighten it twice a year. I don't do it for special occasions, because then it feels like I'm sending out the message that my curls can't be formal or special...maybe that's just me. I do it randomly when I feel like something different, but it only lasts four or five hours before it's gets all poofy!
