Forget about Locking, I straighten my hair! #naturalhair

As you all know, I suffer from chronic hair boredom! Over the summer, I experimented with locks #EpicFail. It was cute while it lasted until I couldn't stand it anymore, I was bored and wanted something new. I wore my wild afro for a while until I could figure out what to do next. I contemplated a cut, but I just had a cut and color not too long ago. It felt redundant!

When I got this brand new fancy schmancy  Flat iron it was set! I would straighten my hair! I was excited and afraid, last time I tried to flat iron my hair by myself it took so long, I got tired-mad and botch half of it. 
The  HSI Professional Glider was looking good after I read the manual I felt confident so I decided to go for it.

I started on freshly washed, moisturized and stretch hair! I went through the first half like a breeze. It took about 14 minutes to straighten the first half of my hair. I was pleasantly surprised how easy and painless it was.
The plates glide smoothly and distribute even heat to smooth out the hair at first pass.

The HSI glider heats up to 450 degrees, but I used about half the heat because I don't want to damage my delicate strand and besides I don't like my hair bone straight. The HSI also came with heat an argan oil heat protectant, to help protect my hair from heat damage and also smell oh so divine.

I think the HSI and I made a great team, we did a fantastic job! I love my new look, and I'm considering straightening my hair more once it gets cooler.

  1. Your hair looks gorgeous! I've been thinking about a lot but I think I would miss my big natural hair too much. Maybe some faux Locs but we'll see. How long did it last? When I get blowouts, I stretch them for 2 months.

  2. I want the faux locks too. I was worried it would be too heavy. My straight job didn't last long, I live in FL it's hot and humid and rainy and I'm careless. I'm gonna try it again when it cool down I'll have better luck!
