I'm the same I started flat ironning in the 8th grade now I'm in the 11th and I just want to wear my natural hair without always wearing it in a ponytail like I did b4 straightening.my hair is collar bone when straightened and doesn't stay down when natural...like 2 years ago I did a 2 strand twist out and it looked great but I wore a crochet hat but that's like the only time I've ever worn it without a ponytail..too bad it only lasted for 1 day and I tried to do it but it was never the same.now that its longer its harder to do because my ends are heat damaged straight...I tried bantu knots and it didn't work....try a braid or twist out
