Ladies, Heat Trained: Hair that has been straightened and has lost the original tight 4b pattern. It is usually easier to press and straighten with hair like this. After repeated once a week straightening for 2 months, my old nappy 4b hair has changed...My curl has loosed. It looks like 3 something hair. To be honest with you, I like it. From what I've read here on the board, my hair has been reconstructed. The heat loosened the bonds of my hair and it is somewhat heat processed. I'm wondering if my hair will eventually start to break off like over processed relaxed hair. If you have experienced this and are able to retain length... ENCOURAGE ME please. BTW: I really want to keep pressing weekly because my DD does not like my medium size afro and my father said I look like I'm on welfare when I wear my natural. He says"that's not a good look on you".
