Surprised myself

I'm not much of a length checker as I don't heat style. I can never tell if my hair is growing but I can tell if its breaking,lol. The styles I usually wear encourage a lot of shrinkage.  Lately I've been twisting out my bangs and bunning the back.  Yesterday , I went into the bathroom to reset my bun as it was too tight and as I took it down I noticed my hair seemed really full so I snapped a picture.

A few things I've learned about my hair:

1. The more I stretch it as days go by, the straighter my hair gets.
2. I need to moisturize it daily and seal even if I'm bunning it
3 My hair grows out and not down.


...... what do you think?

Be still my heart! Look at the healthy thickness! This is beautiful!

I meant to ask, how are you stretching it? This almost looks like a blowout!
The coloured bits seem straighter, but it all looks so healthy and lush! And did I say thick??!

Hi Jo

I usually stretch it via a bun for 7 days after wearing a twist out. My hair takes on straight form really easy when I stretch it.

When I say I dont heat style , I mean period. I dont blow my hair out or flat iron it

Thanks for the compliments :)

Sometimes I do want it to be straight but then I come to my senses, thats what weaves are for
