My hair breaks if you just look at it wrong for the most part unless it's a day after a protein treatment. Are there any flat irons (ones with heat control because i like to keep my heat under 250 if i can) that aren't AS bad for pressing and not as expensive as a CHI? I was considering the instyler but I'm having a hard time obtaining one without paying a fortune.
 
I only flat iron once or twice a year due to the delicacy of my hair, but I need it pressed for a photo shoot and i don't dare get it professionally done because those tools just get entirely too hot.
 
 Any ideas?

could you just blow dry to get that straight look given the texture of your hair or does that not give you the desired result?

girl, i have a hair stylist friend who can blow out any texture completely straight. I think it's all in the technique. She uses an ion round brush, takes small sections ( as if you were flat-ironing), and slowing moving down the hair shaft with the hair pressed between round brush and blow dryer ( with a concentrator attachment). Mind you, this technique is slightly difficult to do on yourself.
