  • do you have a quality flat iron? if you have a crap one, it may not be hot enough to do it quickly. i love my chi. what product are you using.... a straightening shampoo/conditioner/ and product to put in wet will help. i also love chi's silk infusion... it helps make my hair sooooooooo smooth and straight. have you thought about cutting it so there is less hair to fix?

  • I agree with abelsmama07.... the things you use make a huge difference!! A good flat iron and good product will give you a noticeable change!!

  • Yes, you need a good flat iron! I have curly hair that i straighten and it use to take me forever to get it to look half way decent until I bought an expensive iron! I bought a GHD for $150.00. And it has done wonders for my hair! And with this iron you can curl your hair too! It cut my ironing time in half!!!!

  • i have really think hair and i have a good flat iron. make sure its ceramic. that's the biggest thing. i have short hair as well so it takes me about 30 min to style it. i have a ceramic one i bought from walmart for 13 bucks. without a relaxer my hair is super coarse and thick and it does the trick for me
