I'm probably going to have to start doing that. I'm scared, but everyone is telling me to flat iron my hair. I was going to have a guy on campus cut my hair, but I'd have to flat iron it first, and my friends were looking at me like I'm crazy for refusing to flat iron my hair.
I've had generally bad experiences in Salons since I BC'd and I'm still looking for salon. I think I'm going to try one last salon in my home city, and if it doesn't work out I'm going to have to suck it up and do it myself.
