Heat Training – Session 3

My third session went by without a hitch. I cannot honestly say that I see much of a difference in my hair. Well maybe the back section hangs a bit better but my ends are still as coily as ever! Another thing is I got totally bored with wearing straight hair so the day after […]

Heat Training Hair – Session 2

My first week went by quickly and uneventfully and before I knew it, it was heat training day again. I was feeling brave so I decided to wash my hair in just the 8 braids below:   As soon as it touched water, my hair reverted like crazy! It seems the ghd’s low temparature of […]

Heat Training Hair – Session 1

I did my first heat training session on Thursday. It was an interesting experience. I washed and conditioned my hair on Wednesday evening, I was going to deep condition but my 11 month old daughter wouldn’t let me! My hair was already straightened from the week before and I had no intention of detangling so […]

I am going to begin heat training my hair!

After a few days of hell with my hair I have decided that heat training is definitely the way forward for me. I did a wash and go a few days ago and while it looked cute, the detangling session after that was like no other! For the first time in my natural hair journey […]

Hair Straightening Update

I know I said I wouldn’t straighten my hair until next month but I decided on a whim that I would like to have a straight hair week. I washed my hair and deep conditioned with the carmel treatment. After co-washing with a cheapie con in the shower, my hair felt so smooth  I was […]

Oh wow! I got my hair so straight!

  No, I didn’t get the ghd in the end. I decided that I would treat myself to it once I reached a weight loss goal that I’m aiming for. Instead I just got the lovely aveda brilliant anti-humectant from lookfantastic.com as my previous tub had ran out. Today I straightened my hair with my […]

Keeping my hair straight while I work out, an impossibility?

So this week I tried the straight hair look. The first day was fabulous, hair swinging everywhere! However, I’m trying to lose some weight (arent we all!) and as soon as I worked out, my roots reverted instantly. Aveda moisture block is usually fab for stopping reversion in it’s tracks in humid a atmosphere but […]
