I Finally Straightened her Hair! (classic length?)

Hey everyone! I haven't been around in quite some time. I sure do miss the forums though. I wanted to pop in and share the results from straightening my 7 year old daughters hair for the first time. The actual straightening process took roughly 40 minutes, I was pleasantly surprised! Only one pass of the flat iron on each section. I will be posting more info on the blog later today, Beads, Braids and Beyond

Oh and for those of you who used to follow us on Facebook, this is our new page www.facebook.com/beadsbraidsbeyond



Have a great weekend. :wave:

    Beautiful! I can't believe it only took 40 minutes!

    I haven't been on my normal hair blogs for ages and I've gone Facebook AWOL, so I've not kept up; I hope both Miss A and Lil' Man are well and you're still going strong with the weight loss! :-D
