    I'm already back to curly. Why would I straighten my hair in hot, humid, North Virginia summer? I was tripping. Never again.

    I used a heat pass yesterday :cry3: I blow dried. It's so darn hot that I didn't need to and I'm going to be washing today anyway. What a waste! I'm putting in this perm rod set and gonna try to rock for an entire week.

    I haven't had any urge to straighten. I kind of want to blow dry my hair so I can get rid of some of these SSKs, but I haven't decided yet. My second option is to trim my hair in twists but I just don't feel like sitting down and working on my hair for 5 hours. These wash and go's really have me spoiled.

    i have been wearing my hair in a simple bun for almost a week and a half. i just have no patience to do anything in this heat, and with stepping up my workouts, even a twistout is kind of a waste of time.

    So I styled my hair yesterday for the weekend. Planned on doing my bantu knot out but my twists looked so good I couldn't bring myself to knot them. The ends of my hair are super curly and healthy and I just loved the way it looked. However, the trouble spots in my hair aren't good for twist outs. One tiny spot in the middle and the front of my hair where it is more wavy didn't look too good. But my spritz has too much glycerin anyway because after I picked it out and was looking cute I waited an hour and it was a puff that I had to pull up. It was nice while it lasted since I don't normally do twists outs. I can count on 1 hand the times I have attempted one. Anyway, I will have to put in a few big bantu knots to set my hair again and call it a day. I think I can make it to September with no heat and just straighten for a length check for my birthday by then.

    All going string with the wash and go's. I diffused once last week for about 30 minutes on low heat. Other than that I haven't used heat at all, and have no desire to. I really think I can make it to the end of the year without straightening.

    I did a mini search and destroy for my SSKs. I had one section that was really bad. Whenever I find the time, I will put some twists in so I can trim my ends.

    I have an event to go to next week so I need to decide if I'm doing a twist out or a wash and go.

    Less than a month to go! My hair has been growing out nicely and I'm almost sure I won't want to straighten for my birthday but I will need to do a length check and trim by then anyway. I feel like my hair has been making real progress and I don't want to ruin it. I already know I don't want to mess with no stylist so today on my lunch hour I'm hitting up my fav beauty supply store and stocking up on some heat protecting products.
