One of my strong points as a hairdresser is blowing straight Thick curly hair. I am great with making it look straight but with body. I think anyone can use a flat iron and create flat waif hair. Products are inportant when blowdried to limit any damage and no frizz. I usually put in a quaters worth in my hand of Kenra Silkening Gloss and Kenra Smoothing Cream.
Come to my hair salon in LA and see the difference.
