How long does it take you to straighten your hair?

Like Tree2Likes

It takes me about an hour, so I don't straighten it very often. How about you?
Usually, about an hour. But sometimes it takes only like 45 minutes if my hair isn't very curly on that day.
dont really straighten it but if i do 1 and a half hours to 2hours
It takes me about an hour and fifteen minutes with thick long 3a/3b curls. If I put it in a bun right when I get right out of the shower and let it dry that way it takes me about 45 minutes
Straight out of the shower if I blow dry it and brush it, it takes somewhere around 20 mins.. my hair is pretty easy to straighten, especially since it's shorter now. But if I had my hair styled wavy/curly with products and everything, I have no idea, but it'd probably take an hour or so.. haha.
Mostly 2b with bits of 2c in the front (Fia)
High Porosity (Color treated/flat iron damage)
Fine to Medium Texture
Medium Density
Normal Elasticity

It used to take me almost an hour to straighten my hair to my liking, but since my last two haircuts, I've been trying new products and it now takes me 30mins at the most!
2-3 hours. There's a LOT of hair there.

And Voldy's gone mouldy, so now let's have fun!"
When i do a regular routine it takes me about an hour in a half or so but when i flatten my curls to make them wavy it takes me 30 to 45 minutes because i like it perfecto!!!!!!
It takes me about an hour and a half to two hours to straighten my hair and that's barely brushing my shoulder hair (after it's straightened). My hair is so thick the just the top half section of my hair is a full pony tail for a lot of people. I have a ton of hair that's why I only straighten it once every two months and that's just because I'm keeping track of my hair growth and it's easier to keep track of the growth straightened. Once I reach my goal length (which is like demi lovato's length) I won't straighten it at all or just once a year.

Sometimes it will not straighten, it just gets wavy and frizzy instead, no matter how many times I straighten it -_- But on a good, dry day, with barely any humidity, then it takes an hour. But this really doesn't happen, unless it's winter, so in the humidity it can take up to two hours for it to be "straight" (well, as straight as I can get it).
About 2 hours because my stylist has to flatten, then hot comb, and then flatten again to get my hair straight for like all of 15 minutes

Lots of Luck, Love, ... And Curls!!!
Two to three hours, leaning toward three.

Curly since '09
2-3 hours. My hair is super thick! I have to blow dry than take inch by inch by inch of hair to get it silky!

Needs A lot Of Moisture.
I shower at night so if I leave my hair curly the next morning it takes about 30-45 minutes to straighten. As I straightened very often I developed strategies to make it take shorter time. But usually when I straighten I blow dry my hair at night while brushing it (which takes about 10-15 minutes) so it's easier to straighten in the morning and only takes about 20-30 minutes.

But I pretty much stopped straightening my hair. It's too much trouble plus it doesn't ever really stay straight.
