That was interesting! Thanks for the info! I do have to wonder about what she said about oils and heat damage. I know some have said that they use oil as a heat protectant, and I'm wondering which oils can protect and which oils cause damage. Hmm....
I have 3c hair that I haven't straightened in over 5 years. It's just past shoulder length when dry, and almost waist length when pulled straight.
