Happy new year!

I know. I know, January is practically over but the year is still young. Right? Anyway, let’s talk hair, shall we?

Lately, I have been loving wearing my hair straight

January hair

I straightened it, trimmed and cut a little bit off (no more than 2″) at the very beginning of the year. I washed it 2 weeks later, gave myself a blow out (hated it), rewashed and straightened it again 4 days later.

No scraggly ends

I love that I don’t have to do much to my hair right now. It’s pretty low maintenance, especially since I got it really straight. It’s flat but that’s not a bother once I shape the ends so they’re not just hanging down straight.

Also, am able to stretch the style for 2 weeks. My scalp at that point is usually not that great (it gets itchy) but nowadays, I don’t have a lot of time to do my hair like I used to. Plus, straightening is time consuming so I try to make the style last longer.

Wash day for me comes around every 2 weeks. On Thursdays. I basically shampoo, deep condition, apply leave-in conditioner and heat protection serum, blow dry and flat iron my hair. That’s it. In the course of the week, I use oil sheen spray on it or apply an oil as needed.

That’s about all the hair update I have for now.

Hope you had a great weekend!
