It's been about 3 months since the last time, so today I got my hair straightened and trimmed. Let's see how long this lasts. I've gone as long as 9 days before, but I sweat really easily and all this exercise I've been doing lately is not conducive to maintaining straightened hair. Not that I'll be heartbroken about the curls coming back; getting your hair done is expensive, and I just don't want to waste Ma's money. But I'll enjoy it while it lasts. If all else fails, I always have my turban.
