In the last couple of videos that I posted to YouTube, I discussed my straight, heat damaged bangs and how I styled them so that they would blend in with the rest of my hair. Shortly after posting those I started a six week Wash n' Go binge and wore my hair curly the whole time. For a while I was fine with pushing the straight pieces back or braiding the hair into a headband. During this time I was also reading the Curly Girl Handbook by Lorraine Massey and learning more about my curls and how to work with them. I kept looking at my damaged hair and wondered, why was I holding on to the straight pieces?

I do wish the bangs were a teensy bit longer though so that it would be easier to braid them down into a cute headband. Of course this is possible with a little help from my Eco Styler gel. I'm also realizing that I won't be able to slick all of my hair back for awhile. For now though, I'm just enjoying the new look and loving the curls.
