Default My hair won't stop flipping out at the ends...?

I straighten my hair about twice a week but it's really starting to annoy me. My hair is about 2 or 3 inches past my shoulders (when straightened). And my hair is layered. Everytime i straighten it the two long bottom layers of my hair flip out everywhere. It's really starting to annoy me. I use a straightening balm/product in my hair. Is the length of my hair the reason it flips out? How can I make my hair stick straight?! Help!!!!

Are you using a professional flat iron on a high heat setting? That will definitely help.
My ends tend to do the same thing, and what I do is flat iron everything but the ends, then I take a large barrel curling iron and curl the ends under. That way, if they are gonna bend (and they will) at least they will bend under. Personally, I know that I can never get mine quite stick straight. The reason is that moisture in the air will tend to make your hair revert to its natural state. A product called Sabino Moisture Block claims to prevent this from happening, so you might want to check it out. I have some, but haven't quite gotten the hang of how to use it because it's so thick. BUT, I did use this on the hair closest to the nape of my neck, where it always reverts, and it worked well. HTH's.

Thanks very much! I'll try curling the ends of my hair under. And yes I use a good hair straightener on a high heat setting.
