So I was bored with my fro and decided to straighten it with my trusty flat iron.. Its a long process. lol. I have to straighten it TWICE to get it straight. If I do flat iron it I deep condition the night before and make sure I don't have it TOO greasy as I straighten it. ALSO I just leave a dallop of leave in & a bit of skinny serum to protect it from the heat. Texas is too darn humid for straight hair so by the time I made it to my destination (Lil Bro's graduation) I had a thick poofy hair ball. Still cute but very thick looking.
