    I haven't straightened my hair in 15 months! :D

    I used to only straighten my bangs not the rest. It was just awful for my hair.

    I haven't straightened my hair since late December. I'm pretty proud of myself cause I didn't think it was possible ;)

    I'm ashamed to say I betrayed my curly roots and did an at-home keratin treatment about 5 hours ago... My hair is stick straight and allegedly will remain so for 30 days!

    2 weeks. I straighten pretty frequently in the winter because I can never get more than one day out of my hair with this dry weather and if it's straight I can keep it for up to a week.

    From May to September heat doesn't touch my hair...ever!

    About 3 months until thursday. I finally broke down and spent 2.5 hrs straightening it so I could see how long it's gotten. In the 3 months that I super protected it, it grew 2.5 in! Almost an inch a month which is a big improvement from when I straightened once a week and never protected my hair and it grew less than a quarter inch a month. I'm going to try to get it to grow a foot by this Christmas.

    at least a year, maybe a year and a few weeks.

    The last time it was when a friend of mine who as living with us for a little while said he'd like to see my hair straightened, so I did. I probably wont again unless there's a special event or something.

    Since 11th grade so... 2 and a half years ago(: I'm assuming I'll straighten after I reach my goal length in 3 years!
    I do miss my flat iron though *tear*

    My hair is straight right now.
    I like to change it up... I don't think there's anything wrong with flat ironing unless you're doing it so much that your hair is becoming damaged.
