Hi! For those that flat iron their hair- at what temperature do you set your flat iron on when you straighten?

    I like to flat iron at 345. im currently testing out 300 but i am not liking it so far. once upon a time i couldn't even think of flat ironing under 400.

    ^agreed. Also keep in mind that hair burns at 450 degrees Fahrenheit so be cautious(:

    350 is the minimum amount of heat I can use to get straight hair anything lower doesn't get it straight.

    +1...using too low of a temp is a waste of time for my hair. I have to use more passes to get it looking nice.

    I use around 325, but I've been getting my hair straightened since I was in 6th grade (I'm a senior now), so it's built up tolerance and it straightens easily.

    When I used to straighten my hair, I used the highest setting, which was 410 degrees.
