How do you wear your hair: Natural or straight?

Natural and I love it
Straight and I love it
Natural but I wish it was straight

My hair is super curly too- and since I live in FL the humidity adds to everything that is wrong with my hair. Have you ever used frizz-ease on your wet hair after to wash it. I use it, then air dry and it tames the frizz. I also use virgin olive oil (yes, the stuff in your kitchen) so that may be a factor also

I did, but it never worked particularly well for me.  Now I just stick to Biolage.  What exactly do you do with the EVOO?

I use it as a hot oil treatment.  I comb the hot evoo through, pull my hair back and leave it in for a few hours before washing it.

I just put it on right after the frizz-ease. My grandmother has been putting it on my hair for years so its just habit. I don't know if it actually does anything beneficial but it makes my hair super soft.

Oh.  I can't comb my hair before I wash it, so nix that plan. :)

You don't really need to comb it.  Just pour it on (I like using a spoon so that I don't accidentally dump the whole bowl on my head) and work it through with your fingers.

yeah I was about to tell you that you don't need to comb it.. I've tried the EVOO treatment as well and I haven't had a comb in my head for five yrs now  :o damn that's a long time lol..


Ok, I'm gonna try that as soon as I get a microwave.

Has anyone ever heard of people actually ironing their hair?

People used to do it back in the 70s, before there were proper flat irons.  I should hope that nobody is doing it nowadays.  At best, it wouldn't do that good a job because you can't get that close to the roots.  At worst, it can be horribly damaging.

I've heard of Caucasian people doing this, but never black people.  I'm thinking it'd be a lot easier on hair that is long and relatively straight already.  Pretty impossible if your hair is short and/or really kinky.

I've only seen that in the movie Hairspray. I have never known anyone personally who did this.

I hope so, too!  I don't want to be disappointed and think they should have left well enough alone.   :D
