    Er, never. :P
    Thick, mostly 2c with some 3a; fine texture, medium/high porosity, and a very strange curl & wave pattern.

    Started CG (properly) as of 6/31/2009.

    Rinse-out | Burt's Bees Super Shiny

    Right now: growing hair past shoulder-length, looking to take decent hair picture (my avatar is my first day of CG).

    Hmm I haven't straighten my hair since homecoming in october so about 4 months. I love my hair straight but it refuses to stay straight. I had it professionally flat ironed at a salon for my homecoming in the morning and by the time i was ready to go to homecoming i had to touch up a couple of places myself. It's not worth it to try and get my hair to stay straight.

    It's been two years. At the time it was crazy long and took between two and three hours. :P

    One of my friends wanted to do it last weekend but we didn't. I kinda don't want to because the current hair on my head has NEVER BEEN STRAIGHTENED. Or shampooed. Or brushed. Which is crazy.

    Well it was 7 months, but then I ran out of time, needed it to look good for an event, & caved. I also brushed it while blowdrying... over a week later & I'm still paying for that mistake! :(

    I straightened my hair the past two days :-( I just was having bad hair days left and right and knew my hair would look good if it was flat-ironed... but now I'm wondering if it was worth it because when I diffused my hair this morning it just fell all flat. Blahhh!

    Also, I'm 22, didn't realize this was in the teen forum, haha!

    Two weeks! Since it's winter I have to wet my hair every morning if I want to wear it curly, and that's freezing! So I usually just flat iron it. ):

    Almost a year, It just takes too long!! I also do not want to pay $40 to straighten my hair, so it won't even last a day, my hair is so difficult.
  • EvangeliniaEvangelinia Posts: 30Registered Users
    I straighten when all the products I use flatten all my curls. I either just straighten it to get it over with and then wash my hair when the curls slowly pop up again

    OR I'll take some Olive Root Stimulator's Wrap Set Mousse, put some in my hair, wrap my hair in a doobie, tie a silk scarf around my head and hit the sack.

    In the morning, my hair is perfectly straight, soft, and full of volume :)

    I have never straightened my hair. My hair is extremely fragile and thin, and initially, I was afraid to straighten it in case it got thinner or brittle. If I ever did even contemplate straightening it, my parents thoroughly discouraged me. And now, I don't want to straighten it anyway. I don't believe I'd straighten it in the future either :)

    Three weeks now! But this whole quarter at school has been very minimal straightening, once a week max. And I forsee much less in the future.

    Also coming from a girl who used to straighten every day. I really want to straighten it cause I just got it cut and I want to see how it looks (mostly for length) but I am trying to resist.

    Well, when I was a kid my mom or dad would blow out my hair straight, so we never used heating tools.
    But I've been curious a few times, but I can honestly say I can count the times I've straightened my hair on one hand! Haven't gotten curious lately. Maybe the last time was a yearish ago?

    If I hadn't bought a straightener in December, I'd be able to say "never." I just finally gave in to the "trend" of straight hair, and this was, like, a week before I heard of CG. A waste of money (It's a decent one, but doesn't get it pin-straight like a CHI probably would), plus it takes forever. I never have time to section.
