My last hair appointment of 2012 and I decided to have my hair stylist (April of BLLING in Pflugerville, TX) to flat iron it out. We had a family photo scheduled and I didn't want to have my hair up. My hair grew another 1/4" in 2 weeks..
During my few months of this journey, I've worn my hair up and refused daily routine of doing it daily. Here's a photo of my finish product, I will not be wearing my hair down until spring. April does a great job of managing my hair, you would think my hair is relaxed.
