Permanently Straightening.

Hello everyone!

I am SUPER excited at the moment. It may not seem very exhilarating to you, but for have no idea.

Naturally, my hair is very 'unruly'. As a child I remember having blonde ringlets, but the older I got the crazier my hair became; so I turned to straightening it, which is why my hair is so damaged now. Getting it permanently straightened means a few things:

1. I wont have to deal with the frizz ball I once had.
2. I wont have to resort to straightening it everyday.
And 3. It wont take me a million years to get ready.

I'm not going to lie, getting your hair permanently straightened is a long and painful process. You have to sit in a chair for six hours straight. Endure the smell of the horrid chemicals they're putting on your head. Spend an hour constantly flinching when the straightening irons get too close to your ears, isn't the cheapest hair treatment. But of course for me, it's 100% worth it! I can't remember the last time I woke up and DIDN'T scream at myself in the mirror, because I thought a troll was trying to eat my head...

What did I do whilst sitting in a chair for six hours you ask? Well, that's something I kept asking myself before I left the house...but it turns out there were a few things that kept me amused. A huge stack of magazines, and I know it's wrong to listen in on other peoples conversations, but I loved listening to the group of older women getting their perms done gossiping and chatting about their husbands; they were hilarious! Also a teacher from the secondary school I went to was getting her hair done opposite me..needless to say she didn't recognize me as she started bitching and swearing about all her students....Naughty! You shouldn't be swearing like that Miss! ;)

All in all, I'm so pleased with how my hair turned out! I love it! If you're thinking about getting your hair permanently straightened, I'd definitely recommend it! I'm going to attach some pictures of my hair. Please excuse the before picture, my hair was horrid! It was super frizzy and my re-growth looked gross!(Luckily when my hair was straightened, it also lightened slightly so my re-growth isn't as noticeable)

Eeeek! No Make-up!

Has anyone reading this had their hair permanently straightened before? What did you do with your six hours? 



  1. I have had my hair permanently straightened about five times love it for all the reasons above. My hair takes hours to dry. I now use a keritin straintner and do it myself. Not such dramatic results but so much cheaper. Enjoy your new locks Lucy

    1. Thank you :) yes, I'm thinking of investing in a keratin straightener too. I've heard so many good things about them!
