Straight hair, take 2

Ok, this is my second time to flat iron my hair since being natural and phew am I tired smile.gif

I rollerset my hair following a DC and application of chi silk infusion. I let it air dry overnight, flat ironed with my Maxiglide and then used a little [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Oyin-Handmade-Burnt-Sugar-Pomade-p-755.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=oyin-burnt-sugar-pomade]Burnt sugar pomade[/buylink] on my ends and scalp. I know people say to use coconut oil, but I can't stand the smell of it anymore nono.gif

Here are the results , and a few with my newest hair zing. Still not incredibly straight, but I like it smile.gif I am still not using the flat iron on a high temp, I'm too scared.

I think I need to start recruiting DH to help me take pictures though, I couldn't get a good one of the back.

    I likey. I commend your for doing your thing. I don't know how you slept in your curlers overnight so your hair could air dry but....you hair turned out wonderfully lol . It doesn't need to be bone straight. I perfer the full & bouncy look anyway.

    Cammyb, I did NOT get a good night's sleep, believe me!! But I can't stand sitting under the dryer. I have too much to do to be under it for 2 hours.

    I think your hair looks nice.

    Especially for not using any heat and for this being one of your first few attempts. I think you did an amazing job. You hair is shiny and looks healthy.
