I’ve been natural since August 2014 and since that time, I’ve straightened my hair a total of two times. The first time I got my hair straightened, I was disappointed to say the least. The hairstylist turned my chair around and I was greeted by a poofy mess that resembled black cotton candy.
The whole time the stylist was straightening my hair, she kept raving how nice my texture was and how good my hair looked. I had waited two years to straighten my hair since becoming natural and this was music to my ears. Eager with high expectations and images of sleek pressed hair in my head, I couldn’t believe the image I was greeted with.
“Do you like it?”, the hairstylist asked with a smile on her face. Through a forced smile, I answered “Sure!”. I got up and left the salon, no money exchanged, since I’d booked her on an app. I got in my car, slammed the door, quickly flipping down the visor mirror. Yup, just as awful as it was in the salon.
Since that time, I’ve only straightened my hair one other time and it was only a portion. I got a sew in that I thought I wanted to maintain leave out hair for. I was wrong, boy was I wrong. Browsing the wig selection on Sams Beauty, I spotted this kinky straight unit on sale for just 29.99 and I put it in my cart.
This wig is kinky straight, just the idea of how I thought my idea would turn out that fateful day in August 2014. Check out my video below to see how I got the kinky straight look, heat and damage free!
