I'm sure its been discussed a million times before, but I'm new here.Wink
My hair is super thick, wavy, and frizzes like crazy. I'm also a guy, if guy hair is any different?? I have a 12 inch mohawk now, but I'll be growing all my hair out so I can't imagine how frizzy it will be when theres twice as much hair. I have a 13 dollar 1/2 inch straightener from Walgreens that, for the price, isn't bad. But I need something wider and better.

This ones cheap and is "designed for coarse hair" and has good reviews, but is only 1 inch wide:http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=9219372

I'll willing to spend some money on a good one, but would like to stay under 75 bucks, and even 50 if possible.

1.Any suggestions on a good one?

2.And what product helps keep the hair flat and not frizzy?

3. How bad is box chemical straightener?
 I used it a long time ago and didn't get past combing the hair cause I saw strands of hair in the comb( I have ocd and I get paranoid about my hair like thatDead)

I have a Sallys Beauty Supply near by so if its anything I can find there let me know.
ThanksTongue

PS:Japanese straightning is too expensive(And damaging!) and straightening shampoo/conditioners don't work.

I suggest a flat iron, I'm not a big fan of chemicals so I prefer to straighten my hair with a flat iron.

Go with any iron which heats all the way up to 450 degrees but has temperature control so you can choose your setting so you don't damage your hair.

Some irons will automatically turn off when it gets to 480 degrees which can help the fuse from blowing.  It will help the life of the iron.

There are many on the market which offer these features.

Good luck.

If you are using a iron, make sure you use heat protectant before: You should check this out: http://www.thebeautyplace.com/tigi-bed-head/140257.html

Wash hair with smoothing shampoo and conditioner try "my Amazing Blow Dry Secret" spray and blow dry, this cuts down bow dry time and frizz try using a vented "Wet Brush", rub a couple drops of light or moderate serum to hair and flat iron adjust flat iron to your hair texture do not overdue the heat it can cause damage. You could even try a silk wrap that allows the hair to be smoother.
