I never thought I'd see the day when I flatironed my leave out hair 3 times this past week (Saturday, Monday, Wednesday).  I'm 16 weeks post relaxer.  Granted, the week started off drizzly, humid, and hot, but the purpose of me getting a weave was to leave my hair alone.  I want my hair to be straight.  And, I don't want my weave to look like a wig.

In a pefect weave world, I would like to flat iron only once a week.  with the weather changing and my workouts i must say i am walking around looking a little leave out challenged----because i wont flat iron 3 times a week i cant.  So using headbands this week and trying to get an appt with my stylist so I can go back to my staple--- the full weave.

I agree with Kashe--don't flatiron 3 times a week. Invest in Sabino Moisture Block or Lok and Blok and be created to achieve less manipulation. The only time I wore Virgin Straight cost me several inches of damaged leaveout.  Once a week flatiron is my baseline.

Yeah, I guess you guys are right.  Before I got this weave, I haven't used direct heat on my hair more than about 3-4 times in the past year.  I was airdrying and bunning. 
 
I have Sabino Moisture Block.  I guess I need more practice in using it, flatironing, and wraping my hair at night properly. 
 
This sucks.  Cry

I am 16 weeks post also and I actually have given up on trying to blend with straight hair and took down the deviled thing...perhaps leave less out so you wont have much to even flat iron...

I'm natural and I don't flat iron my leave out more than once a week. I just make use of headbands, hats, and scarfs on the days it wants to act a fool.
