There is no real way to straighten hair without heat damage but you can keep it to a minimum. Use a heat protectant or you can even use grapeseed oil since it has a high boiling point, I think 425 maybe higher not sure. Also don't keep the straightener on one section for long or you might fry that part, instead slide the straightener down the hair quickly. Finally, try to use low heat on your hair. Good Luck

I use grapeseed oil. My flat iron has a setting from 1-20 and I never go higher that 1. My hair is in great condition...

On my EVO
