    Use a leave in after you wash your hair, when you blow dry your hair try to get it as straight as possible (tension method)

    You're definitely gonna need heat protection, what kind do you have??

    Yes, definitely use a heat protectant, that's non-negotiable.

    I've heard good things about that product . I would use it on dry hair, and because its oily try to use a little bit

    When I flat iron I
    : Don't blow dry(to much unnecessary heat)
    (Do a roller set and sit under the hooded dryer)
    My hair is pretty much straight by then. i spray on my heat protectant.
    :Flat iron using the trace method with my boar bristle brush. (No more than 2 passes)
    My results are always light bone straight hair(If that's what I'm going for.
    The night before the rollerset I will either DC or PT depending on what my hair needs.
    My strands are fine and don't like a lot of heat which is why I rollerset instead of blow dry.
    I would check the settings of the iron to see what heat setting is recommended for your hair.
    Best of luck:-)
    There are tones of different methods just try to find what works best for you.
