Since going natural almost 3 years ago, I have my hair professionally trimmed and flat ironed once per year, usually in December. This year, since #boxerbaby is due in December, I decided to do my annual flat iron a month early ... and on top of that, I decided to do it myself! *gasp* Shocking, I know. This would be my very first time flat ironing my OWN hair in almost 3 years. Yes, I was out of practice. And yes, I was scared of damaging the curls that I have so lovingly cared for. But one of my reasons for going natural was to be able to due a range of styles, straight and curly. So I took the plunge (and got an unexpected hair cut along the way). Watch below to find out how it turned out!
