|The buns on the bottom and the right have a slap bracelet bun trinket in them. The top left is a wet bun - no filler.|
I actually kind of like it...a lot. No, my hair isn't as smooth and shiny as when I put heat on it with my hooded dryer or flat iron. But it gets straight enough for me to successfully make a smooth/sleek bun and what else does a girl like me need on a hair journey any way...
It's funny how quickly I forgot that this is how I got started on my hair journey (going heat free with those LongHairCareForum boot camp challenges). I'm heat free, low manipulation, protectively styling and my wash days have been significantly shorter -- I can't complain.

Don't hold me to this but I'm thinking I might just go heat free for the rest of the year. Yesterday, I took out my tape measure and it's 4 inches until I'm back at MBL, which is possible for December (right??...8 months and a wishful thinking 1/2 inch per month growth rate/retention)...I know, I know, I'm setting myself up for failure, but if you shoot for the moon at the very least you'll land amongst the stars. :) Also, let the record reflect that on Saturday I will officially be 6 weeks post relaxer, which means the euphoria that I know I'm experiencing from minimal new growth will soon be a distant memory, lol.
Current Hair Stats:
almost 6 weeks post relaxer
4 weeks no heat
4 inches until MBL.
Video Update will be uploaded next weekend (5/18).
