    Default Blow Dry and Flat Iron?

    I know everyone says do what works for you and your hair. Well I have BSL hair and I had my last relaxer sometime in the spring Feb-May 2010. I have thick hair and my new growth is not helping any.

    When I relaxed I had healthy hair and it grew like weeds. I never had any burns or anything negative happen with my hair when I was relaxing. At the beginning of my transition I wore braidouts and they were perfect. Really nice. Now there is no way. My roots are out of control. I have no plans to BC anytime soon or at all. I get trims every 3 months and am due for one next week.

    Thats the background on me and now here is my question.

    How bad is it if you wash your hair, deep condition, BLOW DRY and FLAT IRON once a week or once every 2 weeks? This has been the only thing that is helping me get through this. I have tried twist n curls and that was a disaster. I do not want to get braids or a weave either.

    I have not experienced any damage. My ends will tell you that I am READY for a trim soon but other than that I have not noticed anything. I use a heat protectant.
    My hair has been shedding like crazy but it comes out from the roots. I do not have any breakage where there are small pieces all over my sink and floor.

    sorry guys. I just needed to vent because I am so close to ending this transition. I just need some support.

    So can I flat iron and blow dry to get through this?

    Proceed. OP: did you read the very bottom of this page?
    ETA: Now I remember that you'd started a thread related to textural change before [back in the summer]. Errr ummm...

    You've been down this road before and OhRhonda let you know the deal then too.

    Your thread about Brazilian Blowouts and Keratin Treatments

    The bottom of the page states:
    No posting promoting straightening or relaxing.

    So you will not find support here to straighten your hair.

    With that being said, my mom had BSL hair and transitioned for about 4 months I think. She was getting knots and tangles all over the place. She made the choice to just do her BC and has never looked back. Another option could be to get a mini chop to maybe shoulder length. That way you have less straight hair to get tangled.
