that's good. I can't wait to hear how it turns out this time. And I kind of wish you eventually try Uncurly. I really like how it turned out with that this time. I honestly do think that Uncurly is better than Keratin Research now. 
I am glad you did not do it yet. Try to sit under a dryer for the hour you leave it on before you flat iron. If you dont have a hooded dryer, put a moist towel in the microwave and wrap your conditioner cap or bag with that and keep re warming it as necessary over the hour.

I will definitely try uncurly at some point.

I left it in a while the last time. This time I'll do what I normally do with deep conditioning. I don't have a heated cap, but I do the warm moist towel and then go get on my treadmill. My body heat from running keeps it warm.

I hope I did not confuse you. You know I meant to heat up the keratin solution under a plastic cap not a conditioner.

This is about how I plan to use the hair I recently ordered as a regular protective style for my hair.

Pocahontas braids all around for protective style! Great minds think alike.

I've gotta grow out the patch of short hair in the front so I can do this!

I braided in some jumbo braid hair with my pocahontas braids like the girl in the  video above. It looks really natural but most importantly it is protecting my ends.
Carrie I leave out face framing  hair in the front when I do this. I don't pull it all back.  You can leave your bangs or front puff of curls out. For a real cute idea, why not use curlformers on the short hair you leave out in the front. OR, you can simply french braid the short hair in the front in.

This is the Hair Growth forum Rell, not the curly hair forum Tongue
 
For me stretching the hair is about length retention to GROW.   The reality is that people who retain the classic length hair are almost 100% of the time in buns or braids in order to retain all their hair.  When your hair is loose all the time, you can not retain all your length. Also it is better to retain length with the hair stretched. But if you like curls.....
If you want, you can make the tip ends of the jumbo hair that hang out of the braid curly by braiding it then boiling it with perm rods on the ends of it. This is 2 bags of kanekalon hair I bought. I made one of the bags curly last year by braiding it with perm rods on the ends, dipping it in boiling water then dipping it in cold water.
  In fact, I have bought some curly human hair to put in braids. It just did not come from China yet. So the bottom of my braids will be curly LOL Also the marley hair is coily tooBig smile

I think I could do something like this if I started the one twist further over to the side. My short patch is in the WORST place - right in the front, dead center.
