I finally decided to trim 50% of my heat damage. DO NOT…I REPEAT DO NOT USE AN IRON COMB TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR HAIR (you are going to thank me in the future…dangit I wish I had known). I preferred not to start completely over like other naturals mainly because I enjoy being able to pull my hair in a puff.
The method I used to twist my hair was the twist and snip from Motowngirl.com:
This process involves twisting your hair into small or medium sized twists all over, let it air-dry completely, then snipping the ends as needed.
Also through research when you are using a flat iron do not go above 451.4 F.
