do you straighten yours?
how do you do it?
products?
type of straightener?
ect.?

1) i just started straightening mine, *gasp*. i mean i used to, but like ever other 2 months. but yes, i straighten it everyday now. wooo!

2) i part my hair in the middle, the get my hair in 2 sections. and then i tie both up, and make thin layers. and straighten those, haha.

3) i use this depoofing (if thats a word?) and defrizzing stuff. its by redken i believe.

4) i have some type of wet to straight straigtener. its by conair. its red, :p

5) mm, i hate when it gets wavy. :\ i like it pin straight. but its hard since my hair is thick and curly/way/mess.

so how about you, :]

my hair is like really really layered.
like the top layer is really short,
so i need to straighten the bottoms,
to make it look good.

from the shower, to the mall.

1. when its wet, i brush my hair and part it down the middle. i spray, big sexy root pump in and them like part it on either sides and put it there too.

2. i get a round brush and blowdry it so its big. very volume-y.

3. then i put my garnier milk conditioning stuff in, it makes it really smooth with no frizz.

4. i straighten the tips of my hair only, so i still have volume. it works really well..

i STRONGLY suggest using chi straighteners.
they're really expensive but they work really
really really well. and they last forever.
literally.

i basically have.. THE thickest CURLIEST beast of hair ever.
i try to straighten it every day, but on humid days i just give up.
it curls right back up. but the best and cheapest straightener i
have ever used is a Chi. Also, if you wanna go faster (WAY FASTER)
tie your hair up in low ponytails and go over both of them with
the straightener until they seem straight. Then undo them and
straighten your whole head. It takes about 10-20 minutes off.
(if you have hair like mine..)

i'm like 90% sure i have the same straightener as you, regan !
my hair is naturally straight, but i always sleep with it wet, so in the morning it's soo messed up so i straighten it. i don't do it in layers or anything, i just straightened the messed parts.

i just have a crappy 40$ one.

but i've heard the chi's are good, if your hair doesn't straighten with the cheaper ones and you really like straight hair, i'd say go for it

i hate it.
i never use it when my hair is wet, because then it feels all sticky, and wierd.

but i sleep with mine wet too, bad choice!

yuppers thats the one! haha, your hair definately has to be at least somewhat dry before using it..... but if its not try putting Got 2 B - Straightening and Blow Drying stuff... I either bought it at Walgreens or CVS..... not really positive.


and i think it just looks thin in that picture... but yeah its wider.

ughh i havent straightened my hair in FOREVER.

But I use this conair wet to dry (that can straighten wet or dry) and it works fairly well. Before I use it i put in Pureology super straight, it works best with wet hair. then after sometimes i use sexyhair products.

MY HAIR IS UNRULY RINGLET CURLY. But soft-ish, most days i like it, and i rarely straighten my hair during summer. It just doesn't make sence.

yeah i have the chi
my hair is soo curly and so freaking annoying.
but a lot of people don't know that because i straighten it so much
im scared that its going to get like break off some day
right now, i am scruntching it a lot more. i reccomend that for people with relaly curly hair like I do. then i just straighten my bangs, it's a lot easier! and looks good
(if you don't know how to scrunch your hair, wikihow it [; )
