I had my hair chemically straightened, which pulled all of the color out of it. I then went back a month later to color it, and told her to just make it whatever my roots were.
To anyone Googling “should I straighten my hair?” the answer is NO!
My hair is very dry now, and brittle. I use the most intense conditioners on it, serums, potions, lotions, oils…. still, it’s fried.
And I’m officially no longer a redhead. I’m a brownhead.
This photo was taken soon after the cut. Here’s me this morning:
I just pull it back and call it good. It’s much shorter, but that doesn’t mean it’s easier (my original intention). I almost pulled a Britney Spears and shaved it off last week, but everyone I mentioned it to said that was a bad idea.
Whitey told me to just leave it alone for a year. By then, the curls will be in full bloom on the top of my head, and the straight hair will be hanging in the back like a crispy mullet.
Mmmmm. Crispy mullet. Sounds like a great fish entree.
Anyway…. enough about that. Go back to your original internet surfing.
