Natural Hair: Flat Ironed Hair Four Years Natural

Hey Curlies,

I finally got my hair straightened for the first time in 4 years!


I got my hair done at a salon in Indianapolis by a woman named Mahogany. The weird part was that I wasn't nervous at all! She used all Design Essential products.

It felt AMAZING to have someone else scrub my scalp! After washing she blow-dried in about six sections followed by the flat iron. She also trimmed my ends. The entire process only took about two hours! Crazy right?!

Here is what I started with...

I came into the salon with a huge puff

Washed and blow dried


Today is now day four hair. I haven't put any products in my hair since and have been simply wrapping it at night. I haven't wrapped my hair in forever!...I had to see if I still had it haha (and I do).

Overall I LOVE my hair! I think it came out amazing! I am considering going back maybe once a year for the same flat iron and trim...but I'll have to think about it.
