Thanks Rimi. I've heard very good things about Chi Silk Infusion. So far, I've resisted buying a flat iron. I used to blow dry it, then my hair was falling out from too much pulling and my derm. suggested going curly. (That's how I came to nc.com)

Now when I straighten it (mostly in winter) I've been doing a roller set, which doesn't make it really straight, but definitely different from curly. I might buy the Chi. My pj is kicking in. (hee)
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
