    Posted: Nov 24 2009 at 12:49pm
Hello ladies,
 
I need your help.
 
No matter what I do, I get frizzy ends when I flat iron my hair. The bottom gets very straight not my ends. I have regular trims and I have very good flat irons (100% solid ceramic plates: FHI runway or Hana Elite or Amika, I alternate). I strech my hair with a small comb or a brush while passing the flat iron but still frizzy ends! I use Beyond the Zone Heat protectant and SMB as a serum.
 
I'm 4 a/4 b. Before flat ironing I clarify, protein DC, and moisture DC with JOICO products. I airdry in braids. I thought about roller setting my hair while drying it. I do not like blow drying since I want to limit my heat usage.
 
What is your technique to avoid frizzy ends ladies when flat-ironing your hair?
 
Thank you

I had this problem before.

I solved it by putting my hair in large, plastic/magnetic rollers at night with either zero product or a microscopic drop of Chi silk infusion or a silicone serum on the very tips. The idea is to get the tips/ends to stick to the rollers so they are smooth, smooth, smooth when you wake up. It never works the  when I wrap my hair & I don't like to have it loaded with product, because it gets stiff and doesn't move or bounce.

Dont worry about the big rollers giving you a curl - the bigger they are the more they will actually help with the straightening/fresh press upkeep. Its like a very slo-motion Dominican blow-out without the hair driers and brushes afterwards.

When you take it down in the morning you can finger comb it to a sexy style with the ends not fuzzy at all.

I'm a 4b in my transition.

maybe when you air dry in braid, roll the ends on rollers to stretch them out. i roll my ends when i do twist/braid out so my ends are consistent and they turn out very smooth so i think this process would also work for your problem.

I am having somewhat of the same problem, I have no idea if it is the flat iron that I am using or what. I use sick line heat protectant spray on my hair, I do not use the comb method while flat ironing it but the roots would get so straight and my ends will feel so brittle,almost as if its burned up! I have no idea what to do to solve this problem. If anyone can help to solve this problem I would apperciate that!

sigh that's disappointing that you have the runway and have this problem. i was hoping to invest in that. how do you compare the three ceramic irons that you have?

eta: you might have to flatiron if your hair is in the 4s. i know i do.

OP I used to have this same problem.

However, I flat ironed my hair today, and my ends were straight!

This is what I did differently:

I did not use any silicones before straightening. Instead I used a bit of FHI hot sauce, wave neveau, and Paul Mitchell Straightening balm (not sure if that's the name).

I also left my hair kinda damp. I blow dried it 80%, and then flat ironed.

I am not sure if flat ironing wet or not using silicons helped.
