Ahem. Me too.

I flat ironed my hair (2 1/2 hour process from start to finish) and within minutes my hair was a poofball. I'm also trying to make sure my ends get straight...help? Anyone? I am hoping to flat iron in the winter to avoid the wet head syndrome but can't seem to get it right!

or, you could use a curling iron on the ends. i find this works better for me because they have a tighter clamp than flat irons, plus i like a little bend at my ends (not stick-straight ends).

dang, nobody can help us on the humidity tip so far...
