The only thing you need to worry about is how hot your flat iron is and if that temperature is OK for your hair. The temperature should be set to 360 for very, very soft, fine hair, to 450 for normal to coarse hair. go to Uncurly.com for more.


So when applying the treatment should my hair be wet, then blow dry, then flat iron?  right?
Yes. You can expect the curl pattern to be loosened up to 2 letters (not 2 numbers) if done well. So you'd go from like 4c to 4a with each application. Not a major difference. Mainly hair is more manageable. It only lasted about a month on my 4c friend.  See the Hair Stretching thread under this section for more information.

i saw lots of good reviews for this keratin that you can do the treatment yourself at home:

I have a special event coming up in a few weeks, and I plan on straight ironing my hair.....but I always have major frizz issues in humidity. The frustration! Recently, I've been looking into trying CHI Silk Infusion, or trying a Keratin straightening treatment to help cut down on frizz.

Is having my hair tied up always will help with hair growth?

dandruff. I hate it. I think coming off my bc is messing with my hair and skin. I did finally clear the issue and my has feels better than ever.

Also, growing hair in humid places is not fun.

The Let's Jam has definitely made my fragile hair feel stronger this week. I did not reapply it after the first two days post co wash. It does not do anything magical to the appearance of my hair. For me it just fortified it and makes it feel stronger. So I will try to use it as a leave in regularly on co-wash day, along with oil and conditioner. For me I will simply use it as a length retention strategy instead of thinking of it as a gel. Again, it is really like a thick serum instead of a gel so I can view it as an alternative/upgrade for my Silk Drops Serum leave in. So yes, I do think it is better than Silk Drops Serum as a leave in to protect the hair and ends, but I would not call it a gel. So I do agree with the comment on n the jar "3x less breakage"

Also, I would love to hear from type 4 ladies about how it works for stretching the hair with braid outs and things. I know for my type 3 hair it did elongate my curls.  For that reason, I do suspect it would be great for roller sets, braid outs and twist outs to stretch the hair when applied liberally. However, since it contains glycerine, I would allow close to 24 hours of drying time before removing a set to avoid reversion due to moisture.

PS: I just applied some more through out my hair and particularly around the edges and the ends of my hair to refresh my pigtail braids protective style. For my hair, it did work like both a moisturizer and a very weak edge control when applied  to my dry hair.
