No secret, I just put the iron as close to my roots as possible. I washed my hair yesterday and didn't have any products at all in it, perhaps that was part of my problem.

I just don't have the patience for this kind of thing. I have no idea how people can do this to their hair on a daily basis. Maybe I just need a good haircut, now if I only knew of a decent stylist.
No product is good for straightening - it's better not to use much (a little oil or conditioner on the ends would be good though.)

For me, the haircut is key; certain cuts are more conducive to straightening. I measure my cuts by how well I can straighten my hair after.

I think you did a good job straightening!

My stylist has two of those, a narrow & a wide. Since she uses them daily, she recommends them, but for me & like you, she said a Chi isn't necessary & to just look for a ceramic.

So last Christmas I asked for what she recommended; a narrow with curved sides as they supposedly get closer to the roots & help with putting in end flips.

However, my hair doesn't like to flip on the ends with such iron & barely even with using a separate curling iron. It must be the cut or my hair's stubborn.

Personally I think you did pretty good for the first time, though I don't know if I would stick with something that pulls your hair out when straightening.

Trying rubbing a few jojoba drops on top of your hair and try flat ironing again.
