Straight (for about 4 days)

Hello everyone! Well I finally did it. I got my hair straightened at Pure Beauty in DC. My stylist Nicole is fabulous and I have already made my appointment for August. I had no idea how long my hair is. She cut off about 1/2 inch - 3/4 inch and my hair still is a nice length (see pictures). Not only did the length surprise me, but the health of my hair as well as the color did too. She said my hair was in great condition and really not that uneven (considering I cut it myself the first time). But now I am free of all relaxed ends and my hair is free to really do its thang and curl! The major down side to trying to keep my hair straight is the humidity. DC is terribly humid during the summer as well as Atlanta (I'm down there a lot), so it's hard to keep the ends straight. Nicole used Pureology shampoo and conditioner; I really loved the conditioner because it was so cooling and tingled much like tea tree conditioner. I went to purchase it only to discover it was almost $30 for a SMALL bottle. So needless to say, I haven't gotten it yet, instead I purchased the Paul Mitchell tea tree conditioner. I am kinda bummed that my lil fro has taken a step back because of the trim, hopefully it will continue to grow fast :o).
