A dream come true

My whole life I've had curly...curly hair!
I am the only one in my family with hair like it and I've heard all the jokes of "mom with the milkman" to "are you adopted?".
I hated it as a kid, but luckily fell in love with it as a teen/adult. Now I feel that it defines me :)
When I was younger I had many people try to straighten it and all of them failed, so I just gave up on the dream of "just one day with straight hair". Just so I could see how it would look.

Well, about 4 days ago a friend said "I KNOW I can get it straight and I want to try".
I said "I'll let you try, but I don't think it's going to work!"

After almost 3 hours I went

Yes people... it can be done!
And this girl with such a simple dream can NOW check another goal off my list.
Today is a good day!

Pin It!

Beautiful hair! This makes me smile because I have a friend with hair just like you...when we were in high school a bunch of us girls would all gather around her and straighten her hair together. And it would always take several hours! :)

Soon you will have a system and will be able to do it in less than 3 hours and by yourself :-) I love being able to do both...it's a major blessing!

You look great!
