I decided almost a year ago that enough was enough. I had my hair relaxed for about 3 years and then got a thermal permanent straightening for two years. It was getting extremely expensive and my hair would still be slightly frizzy after washing and I would have to run it through the flat iron.
When I made the final decision to switch I decided to get a perm to help me transition. It was pretty easy for me, I didn't have to do much until it wore off about 3 months later. I've been frustrated since and I've had to use a curling iron (which takes just as long as straightening with a flat iron) so usually I just straighten. I would like an easier method however...any ideas?
I still have about 3-4 inches of straight hair and the ends drive me insane!
Yep, I agree with winifred. Braid your hair when it's wet and put perm rods on the ends (or a roller the size of the curl you're after). It will help your hair to look more uniform and keep away the heat!
