For me it's been 2 months. I had gone 5 months without straightening my hair, but I "had" to straighten it for my for my birthday =(.
This coming from a girl, who used to straightened out her hair every other day.

So, how long have you gone without straightening your hair?

    I wanna straighten out my hair for new years!! But I don't think I'm going to; I'm too lazy to straighten it out now, I got used to not doing it.

    Yeah, I like my curly hair now :)

    A week :glasses8:. I got all my hair cut off, and my wurls hate being abovee my shoulders. The only time it stays curly now is if its in a pony/pigtails/french braided piggies....and my bangs get straightened every day.

    15 and never managed to straighten it.
    i broke my straighteners.
    my friends spent 2hrs trying to do my hair, it just fuzzed and went curly in 10 mins.
    ghds dont work.
    straight isn't an option for this curly.

    About a month. It would be 6, but my class kept bugging me, so I straightened it.

    I hated it.

    Everyone likes it better wavy, too, which is cool.

    3 months. Prior to that about a year. I straightened it after a constant plea from classmates. It looked like crud because my sister borrowed my straightner and left it down south at my other sisters apartment (yeah) so i had to borrow her crummy one. I'm over straightening my hair though and gave my straightener to my sister to keep.

    Oh God...um...I wanna say it's been ten months...? I did it to see the length and it was a very weird experience. I didn't really feel like myself.

    Plus, my s/o forbade me to do it again. :lol:

    I'm okay with it. :happy7:
    There is a phenomenal amount of beauty in self-acceptance. <3

    Around 4 years, people have straightened my hair twice in my life (once around 16 and once around 13) and all they did was make it sort of wavy and fuzzy, not straight. Other than that, that's it. My hair is very resistant to straightening, I couldn't even straighten my bangs.
    But uh, I'm an impostor >.> I'm 20, not a teen anymore!

    about a month...last time I did I burned myself. I think that was my hairs way of saying "put the flat iron down and step away slowly."

    About 2 months, I usually only straighten it twice a year. ;) I don't do it for special occasions, because then it feels like I'm sending out the message that my curls can't be formal or special...maybe that's just me. I do it randomly when I feel like something different, but it only lasts four or five hours before it's gets all poofy! :laughing6:
  • vannessavannessa Posts: 31Registered Users
    It's that some you have said you only straightened it because of your classmates because that's what happened to me. I told my friends, I wasn't gonna straighted it anymore, and they kept bugging me to straighten it because it looks so pretty straight. But I like it curly now, I got so used it. Once in a while it's good for change, but curly is the best!

    p.s. Lody I'm in impostor too. I'm also 20.

    I wanna say about 10-11 months, I have a Sedu straightener, and used it religiously for a long, long time, doing some really bad damage to my hair, it's been sooooo much better, softer, and less broken!!!! lol
  • SandiSandi Posts: 364Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    I haven't straightened my hair in 2 years. Because I have so much hair, it's so much of a hassle to straighten it. The hassle to straightens outweighs the urges of other people to straighten it, thus I don't straighten it. :)

    In other words, I'm too lazy to straighten.

    I have gone 4 months without straightening my hair!
    I made the biggest mistake of my life last May and cut off my long beautiful hair!
    So I mostly quit straightening it cuz it was to short and I couldnt straighten it without burning myself.
    Now I just love my naturally wavy hair and I cant wait for it too grow back
