    What do you think? I was at the salon for 6.5 hours! I like it, so does Hubby. Thank goodness b/c that is the reason we women subject ourselves to this right, men? lol

    Here they are.

    haha, not the greatest at self portraits, nor am I very photogenic, sorry.

    I have very curly hair and have had mine straightened in the past. Isn't it a wonderful feeling? Yours looks great, so smooth and healthy!

    Why did it take 6.5 hours, though? I've done it at home in an hour or two, and in the salon it only ever took 2 hours at most.

    I'd like to see a before picture, too. Then we can all really appreciate the difference.

    Well, considering I've spent tens of thousands of dollars over the years trying to get my hair to curl, all I can do is shake my head!! But your hair looks great. For straight hair, that is! :lol:

    And NO, that is NOT why women do things to their hair. Take my sister, who had hair down past her knees. Virgin hair that she didn't even use heat on. It was gorgeous, didn't have a split or broken end. Our hair dresser knew just how to get her. When he suggested cutting it, her reply was "Oh, my husband would go nuts". His comeback was, "Well, since your husband is in charge of YOUR hair, I guess we'd better do what he wants". She thought about it for about six-tenths of a second and said "You are right. It's my hair not his. Cut it!". Of course hubby was smart enough to keep his mouth shut! ROFL

    Thank you all. Here is the onl pic I have on computer. This was back in June. My hair is naturally wavy. I had gotten a perm in 2006, 2007 and 2008. This pic is from June of 09. I either wanted my hair perfectly straight or curly. My natural hair is wave. I love the straight look. But prolly later I will want a change.

    Thanks again, Kyia.

    It looks great!!!!! I just had mine done, though it was called a smoothing protein treatment rather than a straightening per se. I love my hair now, no effort and it's smooth (and I live in a humid place).

    Mine took about 3 hours start to finish but it wasn't curly to begin with, just way.

    I'll definitely do it again!

    Your hair looks beautiful! Both ways!!!
    Why is it that we women always want to change our hair?
    Mine used to be straighter than straight and in the past had spent plenty of money getting perms. Now I have a little more body and a slight wave, I like it like that but of course now I have to hide the little bit of gray that is starting to appear!!

    With me, it was more that I just wanted it smooth. I can still curl it or style it any way I want, but none of the frizz factor, even when it's rainy.

    So did you get it chemically straightened? I have thought about doing this too, but wasnt sure how it was on your hair.

    If you saw my curls you would understand. My curls are so tight that being 3 inches long it would curl and seem to be half inch long or less. When is humid it freezes and goes up. I had it chemically straightened and I love it now. It is long, past my shoulders and I love it. The only problem with the chemical relaxer is that you can not wash it and let it air dry. It gets too frizzy. I blow dry after every wash and every once in a while I use a flat iron to help it lay flat.

    I would love it if I could just blow dry it, I have very thick hair and it is curly so it is a nightmare to dry and straighten it. I may just have to try these soon.

    Girls with curly hair want straight and girls with straight hair want curly. That is the way of the world.
