Ok, after lurking on these boards reading about peoples DIY jobs...I think I'm ready to try it. I have some questions first:

-I want to try a sample of QOD Max first. Any one do this and can give me a reputable seller on Ebay? I tried looking for keratin4u but could not find them.
-What kind of shampoo/condish are we using? This is what really throws me. I really hate to have to order expensive stuff....is Burt's Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit ok? AprhoDiva, I thought I saw you mention this one...
-How high of heat does the flat iron have to go to? My current one goes to 430. Will I have to get a new one? If so, recommendations for cheap ones?
-What is the consistency of the product? Is it creamy or liquidy? How do you apply it? Do you wear gloves?

I'm nervous and excited! Thanks girls!
