Well, the hair is still straight. It's been this way for a little over a week. I'm trying to take it to at least a full 2 weeks. This is really hard for me as I hate the feeling of "old" straight hair. For me, after about 5 days, it has lost it's "swang" and just feels different, and I am usually over it by then. But, for my hair's sake--if I'm going to put 400 degree heat on it, I think it's only fair to take it to the limit. Plus, I have to admit, it is easier this way. I do see why after hitting a certain length, some tend to prefer wearing their hair blown out/flat ironed, etc. Not to mention, my shower drain is thanking me.
Anyway, today I'm wearing my hair like this. I have been working out still, so my roots are a little "fluffy". This bun hides that fact well. I plan on doing a bantu knot out on it in the next day or so. I will definitely do a post on that, and maybe even a video.
Oh, and as you can see my hair is a dark brown-red color. In some pics it looks black, but it's far from it. I'm actually contemplating going jet black the next time I wash my hair. Ready for a change. What do you think?
