Step Two: After blowing the hair dry, I again sectioned the hair into horizontal
divisions, and began the flat-ironing process. Working with first one side of the head,
then another, this involved using a light mist of hairspray and ceramic plate flat iron on
sections of hair approximately 1-to-1½-inches deep. The flat iron smoothed out the
"fluffiness" and allowed the hair to lie more smoothly on the shoulders.
The entire process of blow-drying and flat-iron straightening took about an hour
and a half, because Jenn's hair is so long. The finished result of the thermal
straightening process was smooth, silky tresses where once had been a mass of curls
and frizz. Jenn also noted with pleasure that her new hair look had an added bonus by making her face appear slimmer.
