Straight Natural Hair


Out of curiosity I decided to get my hair blown out and flat ironed.
I figured after a year of being natural, it was time to see the progress.

Back in December I visited a new salon that I heard about from a fellow natural who also went for the same service. I absolutely loved her results and was ready to make my appointment.

I went to We Love Hair located in Harlem, NY for the full treatment. It’s a beautiful salon and very reasonably priced. I had my hair washed, conditioned, steamed, blow dryed, trimmed, flat ironed and styled for $80.00!!! As most of you know from my Miss Jessie’s experience, this was a welcomed change.

I was a bit nervous about all the heat my hair was about to endure with the blow drying and flat ironing but after seeing the end results, I was very pleased with the results. My hair was soft and bouncy. It never looked this good when it was relaxed.

My stylist took a picture when he finished curling it. I love the layers!!!



My hair didn’t hold up this style for too long thanks to the wind on the way home but it still looked cute:

I kept this look for about 2 weeks. Honestly, after about a week, I was bored with it. I ended up wearing it in a pony tail (just like when I was relaxed). I really missed my curly hair and couldn’t wait to wash the straightness out 🙂 Plus I had some new products I received from my Black Friday haul that I couldn’t wait to try out (next post I’ll be uploading).

I will be doing this again most likely in the winter since this style would never hold up in the summer. It is best done in the colder months.



Natural Hair Salon Find


My hubby sent me a link for a Natural Hair Salon he saw an add for in our local paper.

New Beginning Beauty Salon is located in the Bronx and features services for Natural and Chemical services.

It’s good to see more places catering to Natural hair. I just might check them out the next time I need to get my hair done.
