180 degrees Fahrenheit + grape seed = No damage?

msmishamsmisha Posts: 9Registered Users
Hello all!

So I've discovered that I can get a stretched out kind of look if I flat iron at 180 degrees Fahrenheit - and a silky smooth look would surely ensue if I actually flat ironed my hair in chunks that are of a decent size (yeah, 2 inches by 2 inches isn't recommended lol)

But I was wondering- is this a no damage way to straighten my hair? Well, you know, I'll still put in my grape seed oil as a heat protectant :)
Current Challenge; Water Only washing
Time In; About 2 days (went to the pool, had to wash)
Current Feeling; Concern about hair falling out
Current Hair Status; Soft in my 3B parts, okay in 3C, still kinky for 4a

    I recently read an article on the web about grape seed oil and it noted that it should not be used as a heat sealant. Its due to the capacity of it heating up is inconclusive and it recommended to use mainstream heat protectant.
