  • I tried the home straightner, I think Loreal makes it. Cost about $10. Last a few months. It definitely settles the frizz and puffiness of my naturally curly hair. I won't go to a salon to have it done, cost too much for the same results.

  • My hair fell out in clumps at first. It continued to fall out until it grew out.

  • Those things are really damaging to your hair. Just find you some straightening product in the shampoo aisle, and get you a good, hot flat iron aka straightener, and straighten it daily. When you get out of the shower let it dry some from the air. Then take a blow dryer and dry it. Brush it out as much as you can, then take the flat iron and straighten your hair in sections, also get some frizz ease by John Freida. It helps a lot.
