    @cali~jenn, remember I live less than 15 min. to the beach, Very high humidity here. I think that is why it did not last as long as it was suppose to. If you go to my FB page, my profile pic is right after I had it done. Nice and straight!!

    This thread is great! I also have, as I like to call it, kinky hair. It doesn't curl anymore (it did in high school and early 20s which was awesome, I was able to wear it both curly and straight due to my CHI) but it also isn't straight. It looks INSANE if I don't blow dry every day. Then I hit it with the CHI of course. My hair is in a stacked bob at my chin ... best choice I ever made. Cut down on drying/flat-ironing time and is so manageable! I did grow it out for the wedding last year and even lasted until the first warm day ... then I cut it all off so it was off my neck!

    PS - for those who blow-dry/flat-iron ... some products I have found a HUGE help. (They are not cheap but totally worth the money. Especially after trying pretty much everything.) Bumble and bumble Tonic Lotion (It's a spray, it conditions the hair and scalp. Helps protect from all the heat! I put that on first). Redken Velvet Gelatine 07 (This helps the hair hold the style and protects from humidity. I put this on next then blow dry.) Finally, after flat-ironing, I use my new absolute favorite thing in the WHOLE WORLD. Redken Shine Flash 02 (This is a super light glistening mist. Best part about this is that it makes your hair nice and smooth/shiny without looking greasy AT ALL! It also protects from humidity!) Thought I'd share because it took me YEARS to find stuff that works and doesn't make my hair greasy/hard/dry/etc.

    I don't think this is what I had done..I had something else done with a bunch of chemicals. lol. "Chemically straightening."

    I was in like 8th grade and sick of getting teased for having curly hair. I was getting bullied for my hair non stop. So I begged and begged my Mom and she took me in to the hair dresser to get this treatment that works on pretty much everybody and will even tame the frizziest of african american hair.

    That treatment took SIX HOURS. Omg it was awful. And once it was done, it didn't even work. It barely relaxed my hair. It straightened a couple of pieces and I looked like a complete moron for several months. x.x Ended up having to cut off a good chunk of my hair, actually.

    I'm learning to embrace the curl. At least I can control it now..

    I had a hair dresser who called my hair "Kunta Kinte" and said I had the craziest, frizziest, curliest "white girl hair" he'd ever seen. x.x

    I have to put soo much product in it to keep it manageable. I wish I could just do nothing with my hair and have it look good!

    so glad I came to this thread... i have been thinking of getting this for my sister as a gift. I have perfectly straight fine hair (heck of a lot - every stylist I've ever been to has told me I will never go bald) anyway... Shannon (my sister) has unmanageable thick (like thread) curly hair - she HATES it and for as long as I can remember she has been envious of my hair (again, we all want what we do not have). she has four children so never has time to style unless they are going out for some event... which she then spends about two hours to get it straight - blowdry, big fat curlers and then the straight iron... UGH.. I would have cut it off before doing all that, but for the most part she just pulls it back to not deal with it. So, in reading all you have to say.. I think you gave me the info I needed to make the decision. thanks all

    Well I have to say now that I have had it done and all. I do love it! It made my curls much less curly and now I can round brush my hair and not flat iron for the first time in ages and it is very smooth all over. I am sure I wont keep it up all the time but I will for sure get it again. If your sister has such a hard time with her hair I am betting she will love it!
