1 Year Post Big Chop | Natural Hair Journey | Blowout & Flat Iron for Beginners
Hey guys! I've been gone for a minute but I'm back with the jump off - it's officially been ONE YEAR since my big chop. To celebrate the occasion, I'm blow drying and straightening my hair for the first time in over 365 days. WOW, I can't believe that I waited this long. In this video I do a twa length check; a straightened hair length check; I discuss the products I've been using; my protective styling techniques and growth retention secrets. I share a little bit more about me and what I do for a living as a hairstylist and makeup artist is New York City. I also discuss my thoughts on the Eco Styler controversy. Be sure to scroll down to see the names of the products shared in this video.
I hope y'all enjoy this video because it took me forever to edit, haha.
Thanks for all of the support - it means the world to me!
