Working with a Different Hair Texture Than my Own

Short side note/intro:

Do you ever have those days where you just know it’s going to be a good day? I feel that way almost every Saturday. I’m naturally a positive person, but it’s nice when you have a day to have fun. It’s not because I don’t have any issues, I do. I’ve been fighting off a cold and I couldn’t fall asleep until around 1:30 last night due to coughing. Then, this morning a heavy mirror fell on my ankle (it still hurts 😣). I just choose to focus on the positive things in life.

It all boils down to what you’re thankful for. I’ll start with listing three things that I’m thankful for. I’m thankful that I woke up breathing through my nose! I’m thankful that I have a wonderful and quirky mother who enjoys watching dramatic treasure hunting shows. And I’m thankful for fixing up a girl’s hair for her middle school dance. I love children and I love doing hair. So this one is a big plus!

Now onto the hair…

I am no way a professional hair stylist nor do I claim to be one. But, I gotta tell you, I love playing with hair whether it be my own or someone else’s. If I’m good at something, I like a challenge. Today is going to be a bit of a challenge because this girl’s hair is different than my own. Although, I have a bit of experience with her hair type because I’ve played with her hair in the past, but I’ve never straightened her hair. So we’ll see how it goes.

My friend is going to her middle school dance and wants to look fancier. Now she is in middle school, so it’s not going to look super fancy. I never went to a middle school dance, but it sounds like a lot of fun and she sure is into it.

Here’s what I’m working with:

Straightening hair au natural baby

I just did little sections at a time like you do when you straighten thick hair. I had to put the rest of the hair in ponytails to get them out of the way! It’s a lot of work to straighten all this!

Getting started!

In this picture, you can see the drastic change between natural and straight. For those of you who don’t have curly hair, I’m actually a magician and waved my magic fingers to make it longer. Unfortunately, this magic is washable so when she washes her hair, it goes back to the natural style.

See the change between straight and natural hair!

Then 3½ hours later, the hair is totally straight! I couldn’t get her edges on her forehead to be straight because they’re super curly and I’m not really a magician or a professional hairstylist and I don’t know how to fix that. Otherwise, I’d say I did a pretty good job.

She looks beautiful in both, but so different!


Thank you for reading all this! I hope you are having a good day today, I sure did. My question for you is: Do you prefer curly or straight hair for yourself?
