Hi Tena, thanks for responding! I'm only thinking about flat ironing in this cool, low humdity, low dewpoint weather. In higher dewpoints I would definitely go curly because it would be hopeless otherwise.

Do you have a flatiron you particularly recommend or should I just go with a cheapie Conair or Revlon?

I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
