    Since I went natural in 2013. I flat iron a few times a year and sometimes I do a soft blow dry to stretch then twist out. Lately I’ve become more of a lazy natural. I’m kind of over my hair and thinking about getting it cut into a tapered cut. Then I’ll be a combo twist out and wash and go natural, I think.

    straight hair natural. I don't consider myself heat trained because my curl pattern is still intact. My hair reverts just fine.

    I wear twist most of the time. I may blow dry and flatiron 0-2x a year, or wear a twist out 0-4x a month.

    Lazy, color treated natural. I blow dry (Revair) to stretch my hair to do mini braids. I usually put those under a wig or in a bun

    Lazy natural a.k.a the simple natural. At this point in my journey I like my routine, products, and styles super simplified.

    I'm a natural who usually wears wash n gos, and finger detangles 97% of the time. I don't like to mess with my hair too often. Once it's styled, I usually leave it for at least a week. I might straighten my hair once or twice a year. Right now my hair has been in twist extensions for 6 months (with me redoing individually as needed).

    I am straightened or stretched natural. I wear my hair flat ironed a will. If my hair has been straight for a while I will miss my natural hair then go back to natural styles at will. If my hair is in it's natural state it is usually in a stretched style like twists, sets, revair/blow dried. On rare occasions I will wear my loose natural hair out but that is always the day of or the day before a wash day to prevent tangles or matting(I looks great loose and free but I avoid setbacks). I am also very particular about the style of my hair. Pressed hair cannot look blow dried. Blow dried hair cannot look air dried and natural styles have to look "neat". Naturally loose hair must look moisturized and supple. On occasion I have bad hair days but these are exceptions that are quickly corrected.

    Lazy natural..I usually wear big braids under a wig or hat during f/w. In summer, I wear twist outs or two natural braids.
