Repeat, but serious..

Next time, I'll go for a Dominican blow out.

I would try to do the Dominican method, next time.
Now that you mention, the hair that won't revert was finer. More of a 3Aish texture. My 3c hair is just fine

Asian women frequently have coarse hair and they mostly have type 1 hair. The kinkiest hair type, 4B is usually quite fine. That, along with all of the bends and curves, is why it's so easy to damage it.

You can't tell if you actually have coarse, medium, or fine hair unless you look at the individual strand to measure its thickness. There are articles about measurements. I'll see if I can find them.
By coarse, I meant the texture. I have coarse and curly hair and I think coarse hair tends to be stronger and fine hair more fragile, so I would think that fine and curly hair would be more easily damaged by straightening, regardless of how curly it is.

You got me. I'm Dominican and this is what my mom did and what the salons we went to did. Maybe other caribbean salons do this too. I've never been to any others, so I'm not sure why this method is attributed to Dominicans.
