natural heating

The US National Science Foundation shared this vine showing how scientists actually sample active lava flows on Hawaii - they literally pull the lava away with a hammer then drop it in a bucket of water nearby.

4c hair ain't meant to be straightened

After 10 months of tending to my hair after I straightened it, I’ll probably never do it again.

I straightened my hair February 28th (my birthday) of 2015. Shortly after I washed it & noticed my curls did come back but my hair didn’t feel the same. It was thinner. More manageable. I could easily do a slick back ponytail (which caused my hair to break because it was thinner at the time). I asked my friend who straightened my hair what was going on because it didn’t seem like heat damage but I knew something was wrong. She told me everyone’s hair gets a little damaged whenever you straighten it, I was lowkey pissed.

So over time I just went back to my regimen & continued to do my hair as normal, which is when I started to see it was truly damaged. My ends were way thinner than the new growth.
Finally after 10 months, my hair is back to the length as last year before I straightened it 🙌🏾🙌🏾
Lesson learned !

No heat is the best choice for my hair. Let me know if you can relate
