Flat ironed my hair...about 90% strait. To get it any straiter would require more heat and product. The willingness to wrap it every night and touch up when it curls back up. Not willing to do all of that.
What I am willing to do...put curlformers in to further stretch it out and see if it will last a week. Braid it for the second week. I was quite surprised to see all the gray. Hahaha I used to have a few strands here and there in the front....imagine my surprise to see its all over....front, back, and sides. That's almost worth cutting off the red for...but I'll let it grow out some more first.
