Correct temp when doing Coppola yourself

Raven CurlRaven Curl Posts: 45Registered Users
Hi. I have decided that I'm going to purchase Coppola and do my hair myself. However, I'm having a dilemma regarding the temp of my flat iron. I believe the instructions say that the iron has to be at least 450 degrees. I have a CHI and it only goes up to about 330-350 degrees. I don't have the money right now to buy another flat iron. Do you think that the temp of the CHI would be enough to get my results?
I thought about asking a stylist with a hot iron to just flat iron it for me, but I don't know if they would do it with the chemicals on my hair.
IDK, do you have any suggestions or ideas?

    It has to be at 450 or it won't work.

    You can get irons that go up to 450 quite cheaply. I got mine in the UK for about £25 and I actually like it better than my GHD.

    Out of curiosity, where are you buying the Coppola treatment from?
    UK curly.

    3a-ish, with bits of 3b ringlets underneath and 2b/c waves on canopy. Medium coarse, normal elasticity, normal porosity (now know thanks to Curl Wizard analysis).

    No poo- Palmers conditioning cleanser
    DT- Jessicurl WDT or Darcy's Pumpkin
    Styling- John Frieda curl controller gel
    Don’t like- Deva NoPoo, JC CC, JC CQ, KCCC, plopping.
    Loves air drying gentle scrunching with microfibre towels
    Don't like plopping, pixie method diffusing

    Well, I have read on the boards that many people have bought it off of Ebay.So, that's probably where I will get it. Do you mind telling me what the brand of flat iron that was that you got? Thanks!
