This flies in the face of what we all learn when we begin our natural hair journey. This is heresy! And yet, very refreshing for a change. Most of us these days begin our journey to natural hair by watching videos of people telling us not to ever straighten our hair without heat protectant. It got so bad that some even suggest we don’t flat iron at all, in order to avoid heat damaged. This tutorial shatters all of these beliefs and leave you comforted in the fact that your hair care is in your hand.
This tutorial is not advocating to not use heat protectant. She shares her experience as a naturalista that you can, as a matter of fact, flat iron using no heat protectant and not get your hair damaged. This is different from other people telling you have got to do this and that to your hair. I like that she counters all that by saying, “do whatever works for your hair”. With that being said, she also gave 3 ways in which she is able to achieve that successfully. So you must watch the video above to learn more.
Many naturals get worked up over their hair, understandably so, but we must learn to step back every-now-and-then to examine what it all means. By that I mean, you are more than just your hair. This issue is debatable and the debate is happening right now. Some are okay with it while others are not. This goes to show there isn’t just one way of doing something. Check out this article in Blackgirllonghair.com which further emphasizes on this point that you can flat iron hair without heat protectant and not get any damage if you do it right.
