Straight Haired Naturals Can Retain More Length With The Right Regimen

I have been meaning to write this post for a few weeks now because I figure why not tackle the subject of straight hair now, when we are headed into "flat iron season".

I read a post the other day from a friend, email and blog guru Shelli over at Hairscapades, where she said she was now a straight haired natural.

She details her reasons in her post which I understood but I also know that the concept of women with natural hair having their hair predominately straight regardless of the season is nothing new.

Hi there:
I’m 33 and have four kiddos and I have been natural for 10 years give or take 5 months of draw backs! I have big chopped 3 times and am a advocate of straightening natural hair…. I approve this article because you must understand hair and moister retention and the simplicity of protien that hair has already when u decide to add heat into your regimen. I only use baby shampoo and Glycerin in my hair regimen and sometimes I use apogee as a leave in & I spray a small mist( it does contain a small amount of protien)… i have learned a lot as God has let me live and I don’t believe washing hair is the culprit because washing can stimulate the scalp depending on if what your washing with is Nourashing, I think this conversation can go on and on….. Because we will be ever learning our hair no matter the race because the body will change and have different needs accordingly… In short I’m for “Straightening ” here is a picture click the link below of me straightened with my small regimen https://instagram.com/p/9rUDRvHJYx/

My grandma gets her hair straightened every two weeks and she has long healthy natural. She just oils it and pin curls it at night, drinks alot of water everyday, exercise, and eats healthy. She goes to the salon to get her hair washed, blow dryed, and flat ironed . Personally I would only flat iron twice a year. I love the rain and I love to swim. So I braid my own hair and take it down for a couple days then braid it back up.
