If you follow Ooh La La Blog on Twitter then you know I recently removed my weave for GOOD! It was so hard to say goodbye to my long, bone straight, and manageable hair. I’m not kidding at several points through the process I wanted to turn back and get this hair sewn up again, but I stuck to my guns. So I removed the weave, now what am I suppose to do? I can’t wear my hair curly because I’m suppose to look polish on air and big curls aren’t necessarily the polished look they expect to see on the 6 O’clock news. So I spent my entire Saturday trying to get my hair camera ready. Keep in mind I’m relaxer free and have been since February 2010. Check out my process. I tried to document as much as I could.
After removing the weave I washed and deep conditioned my hair with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Shampoo and conditioner.
I blow dried and flat ironed my hair, which took more than three hours.
Imagine my surprise when my hair turned out straight. I thought I was on the road to bouncing and behaving.
But after 15 minutes outside Sunday afternoon my hair looked like this…..sigh.
What can I do to make sure my hair looks sleek and polished? I don’t want to put a lot of heat in my hair and I don’t want to use a lot of product. Please HELP!
