heat training with a regular flat iron vs maxiglide..is there any difference?

Id prefer the maxiglide because Im assuming it adds moisture to the hair …

browngirl86, can you post your regimen?  What products and tools you're using and how?  I would love the versatility and I think I have the type of hair that wouldn't lose it's texture either.  Pics?

OMG I need this thread in my life! After dealing with so much ssks and tangling I've decided to heat train. As my hair grows longer its getting more difficult to deal with, when I started out 2-3 inches my hair was so easy to deal with, now that its longer (bottom of neck) it's becoming a chore. I've checked out Longhairdontcare2011 youtube page and was excited at first but then became a little discouraged because her hair seems to be in the type 3 range...or so I taught until I read up post and it says she started off as 4b.  Well that's cool, I only want to lightly heat train nothing too much just something to help me deal.

 
I also checked out Mwedzi's info and she stated that she uses heat sometimes too, so heat is not the enemy just how it's used. Any successful heat trained  naturals please give us your imput.

Im a heat trained 4a so i guess this isnt really directed at me, but Imma answer anyway.


i did the bkt and it had its good points but heat training was easier for me in the long run. i couldnt deal with the tangling and how i couldnt style my hair the way i wanted. my curl pattern didnt really loosen that much except for the very ends(but i am way past due for a trim). but the texture of my hair is different. it less constricted and more easily manipulated. blowdrying  with my hair at apl/bsb takes 20 mins compared  to an hour at sl when my hair rarley touched heat. i have retained most of my length doing this but it has only been a little less than a year of regular heat usage. this just gives me managablility. it kills some of the volume though, at least for me.

i press every 2-3 weeks. it may not last 2-3 weeks though especially in the summer.


in the summer i would air dry, press and then flat iron,style.

in the winter i would blow dry,press and flat iron,style.


products:

cheapie shampoo and conditioner,

smooth n shine straighten polish for blow drying

and apex pressing oil for pressing. the apex is new(since august) it brings my presses to another levelCool everyone asks if i got a relaxer when i use it.

beyond the zone siff head. only for the very baby hairs that i cannot press.

i dont like air drying because even though i use less heat my hair tangled up so badly and i have nappy ends no matter how many times i comb chase.


now i am switching it up to: 

blowdry straight as possible with brush attachment

flat iron at 365 with chase method,using boar brush. applying a dab of apex per section.

press at 350 on edges and roots only.

style

Thanks Napp
 
I am thinking about rolling my hair in large rollers first to get it stretched out then the heat. Hopefully that will work well for me

Have any of you experienced damage i.e. split ends and dryness from heat training?
