I am a 16 year old guy with short/medium length and extremely wavy/curly hair. I have to straighten it daily, for it looks terrible if left slightly curly at all. Right now it is at its longest, and i am getting it cut very soon. I want it to lay straight down, and do not want to mess with it in any other way than just straightening it. (ex. permanent straighteners, gels, creams, etc..) when i first started straightening it about 4 months ago, I was able to finish fairly quickly with great results. But recently, it has taken much longer, with much worse results. I don't know if this is dues to my hair being much longer than usual, or if its the irons fault, i don't know.

The current straightener I use is a "TI Titan Miniature Styling Iron", with a 1/2" iron width seen here:,default,pd.html

Here are some before straightened, still damp, and unbrushed:

And here are some before straightened. But completely dry and brushed (gets increasingly curly and frizzed from this point on):

And here are some recent pictures from after it's straightened
(at its longest) :

Sorry for the picture quality (camera phone)

It would be very helpful if anyone here could help me with any of the following problems:

  • How to explain how i want it cut (I have no clue how to explain it)
  • How to let it dry (air dry, blow dry, when to brush it)
  • Tips for straightening
  • A new (narrow) straightener
  • I can no longer make it look as good as the last set of pics, so anything you think might help
Thanks in advance
