Beauty Salon Update: Pressed Hair

As planned, I went to the salon on friday. I was VERY nervous and was really hoping that I would not leave looking like Cousin Pearl. Well. Here is my experience:

I arrived at 5:30 and she immediately had the shampoo girl start on me. After a conditioning treatment, she lightly blow dried my hair on a warm setting. Once my hair was 80% dry, she placed me under the dryer. After sitting there maybe 10 minutes, she got me out. She then gave me a good ole press and curled my hair with some marcels.

When she whipped me around I could not hide my smile! I LOVED it. It looked light and bouncy. I had MAJOR movement. Unfortunately the humidity stole my curls before I made it home...but once I wrapped my was silky and bouncy.

I will DEFINITELY be back in two weeks. My hair is not the length I would like, but it is nice and thick and a decent length.

Me happy!

What!? No pics. I'm thinking about getting my hair pressed. I have been completely natural for 2wks. My hair is so dry and my pockets can't take this daily shopping trying to find products that will moisturize this tightly coiled head.

Start out with deep treatments. When I first chopped my hair was terribly dry as well, I did weekly deep treatments with Pantene's Mask and it evened out. I post6ed about it here!

And pics are coming REALLY soon. I have an appointment tomorrow for a second press

OH and congrats and welcome to the wonderful world of natural hair!
