My hair in this video is an old flat iron. With all hairstyles, results will vary. You do not have to straighten your hair to achieve this hairstyle. This will be beautiful with your curls, coils, a twist out, braid out, bantu knot out, flexi rod curls, waves, kinks, etc. Be creative and have fun!
How long a hairstyle lasts depends on several different things, the climate where you live, your hair texture, type, your daily activities, etc. Always keep this in mind when attempting any hairstyle.
