I use jojoba oil every time I straighten and it doesn't fry my hair. First I leave in lots of conditioner and blow dry my hair without worrying about getting it straight, then I apply jojoba oil and iron it section by section. More jojoba oil after ironing. Leaves my hair soft, silky, and shiny.

I was wondering the same thing. I use Jojoba when I straighten also. Although lately I've been liking my hair just blown out without the flat iron, I end up with curly ends. (my hair is long now) I blew it out today and thought my arm was going to fall off and then I was sweating so much the underside started to get wet and curly again.
I just left it but oiled it to tame the frizz. Sorry about the guano, had to share.
My hair is a mix of 2b/3a and even a bit of 3b thrown in! I would call my hair wavycelli. It curls most when I leave it alone after wet scrunching. My hair has a spring factor of about 2 or 3 inches and has a very silky, medium texture.
