I've become a straight hair natural


My name is Natasha & I've become a straight hair natural.......and guess what? I love it. 

A few years ago, I use to write on my blog about protecting your curls and how to get the best twist outs and how bigger hair was better hair, but lately I've been in a straight hair don't care mood. Don't get me wrong, I still take great care of my hair and value body, moisture and shine but I’m not really all about the perfect curl these days.

As many of you know,  a few months back I cut my hair in a pretty drastic bob (or so I thought). I loved it then and love it even more now that I see the growth I've achieved from my cut in a few short months. When I first got my cut, I tried curl styles immediately from perm rods, to coils to twist outs. Nothing really gave me the life I was looking for other than when I straightened my hair for the first few times. I noticed that because of my length my wash time and straightening time was cut down drastically. I could wash, blow dry and straighten my hair in about an hour and a half. On top of that my straight hair was lasting at least 2 to 3 weeks.

Naturally, because I've been straightening my hair more often, I have wavier hair instead of kinky curly, but I'm totally fine with that and embrace it 100%. Some of you might call it heat damage, heat trained or some other term but I just call it healthy hair. I believe in doing what you think is best for you and your hair and right now I love it straight all day every day. All hair is not made the same and some texutres can only take a moderate amount of heat. I try not to straighten in between washes and maintain my body by wrapping my hair nightly.

My go to style while straight has been curling my hair with a 1 inch ceramic iron and wearing it with a lot of body. I think this style is classic and chic. It also lasts forever!

  1. Looks great!! I've been thinking about going straight for the winter. You have to do what works for you.

    1. Thank you, Candice! You should go straight for the winter--It's honestly the best time to straighten. It lasts so much longer :)
