I am graduating from high school next week which means the dreaded cap.. and i tried it with my curly hair.. and it just isnt working!

I need the best tips for straightening my hair. What products should i buy? Should i wash my hair right before or the night before? Anything that would help me!

I dont ever straighten my hair.. so im not good at it. Any tips would be great!! thanks so much

p.s. im from the mid west... so hopefully humidity wont be toooo bad, but any other suggestions for fighting humidity with straight hair would be awesome!
