Flat ironed hair after 6 months CG....**PICS ADDED**

So I've been wearing my hair curly for six months now and this weekend I decided to dye my hair jet black (premature grays are annoying me) and then I flat ironed my hair (with a LOT of heat protectant spray, silicones galore lol and on a lower heat on my flat iron) So anyway, I like it and my plan was to keep it straight for two weeks but after two days I miss my curls I never thought I would, but this is the first time in my life that I prefer it over straight hair! Wow I've come a long way lol. I made a youtube video on my flat ironing so check it out and comment if you'd like, the link is below.

No problem in changing things up, but it's a wonderful feeling to love your natural beauty, isn't it?
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

I completely understand where you're coming from. This weekend I went to a wedding and I flat ironed my hair. By the next day, I co-washed and was literally praying for my coils to pop up lol.

I want to give the straightening thing a try but a couple of things are holding me back..

I am scared to death of heat damage. I have 3b curls in the front, crown, and nape (the rest is 3c).. and if those curls didn't snap back I would be so so devastated especially since I worked so hard all this time to get my hair so healthy.

I have some heat protectant spray and one of those ceramic flat irons but can't bring myself to use them. I don't even use a blow dryer or diffuser. I always air dry.

AND THEN.. there is the husband issue.. He's the opposite of a lot of men. My husband doesn't really want me to wear my hair any OTHER way besides curly. I've known him for almost 18 years and he's always maintained that he prefers curly dark hair on women. So I guess I am a little apprehensive of him coming home from work and being like.. "NOOOOOOOOOO..where are your curls!!???!!"

Our 6 year old would love it though.. he thinks mommy's hair is a "little to big"...ROFLMBO!
