Default there are more advanced forumulas out there

but the results, the stick straight results, I've only seen people with wavy hair get those results. The curlies tend to stay curly. Marcia Teizeira, I've heard her brand bein used by people with kinkier/nappier hair textures, so it may be stronger and give you better results. Also, rejuvenol makes a "boosted" brand for these textures too. It will depend monstly on the application process. I'm learning this myself!

Yeah, it's more about the tightness of the curl than the brand or formula. Only someone with a 2b or 2a (or looser) curl pattern could expect stick straight. However, you could apply it two or three times in a row if you're a 2c or 3a. That should get you pretty straight. Also, it would take very, very little effort to get your hair straight even if it still had a slight wave. My natural curl pattern is a very stubborn 3c/4a--mostly 4a--but now is a 2b/3a with the BKT. I can now straighten my hair with just my hand and a blow dryer. I don't even need a brush. I can just gently pull it straight while I blow dry, and it's perfectly straight and is not affected by humidity.

I use QOD brand, and I've been very, very happy. See my sig!
