I naturally have thick wavy (somewhat nappyish) hair. I always wanted straight hair (since I was little), but never got the nerve (or the cash) to do it.
Today that changed.
My salary essentially doubled, My bills are paid off.. so as a treat, I went to the hair salon in Long Island (there are many, the one in rosevelt maul), and asked the woman if she could straighten my hair.
Now my hair is NOT long, maybe about 2 and 1/2 inches long. I've researched, read books on it, reviewed articles.. but never actually just took the freaking jump.
Now if you ever had a plaster mold made out of your face.. this is essentially the same thing, except its your hair.. and they keep asking whether it burns instead of whether you can breathe.
12 minutes later, 3 rounds of neutralizer, and my hair actually has body now.
I walked through the mall literally floating on air (and touching my hair). I even got some nice looks too..
I love my new hair...
