Q: I seem to be having trouble figuring out something to do with my hair. I have been natural for 2 years. I do straighten my hair occasionally to do something different – is this a bad thing to do?
A: Thank you for your interest. Straightening your hair is not bad if done correctly, not too frequent and done on chemical – free hair. I suggest using a ceramic iron for temporarily straightening natural hair textures. I cannot endorse any particular brand of ceramic iron but you want to invest in a quality ceramic iron. Check around before purchasing. A good non-professional ceramic iron can run as low as $27.00 – $75.00.
