I usually wash my hair and roll with while wet to decrease the amount of heat I put on my hair. When dry, I take the rollers out and straighten. This time I blow dried first and then straightened.
My hair blow dried before straightening:
I parted in rows, adding heat protectant to each row. I used a flat iron to straighten.
This process took way longer than expected and will not be doing it this way again. It didn't turn out how I expected. My straight hair did last for a week and a half, but I couldn't wait to go back to my kinks and curls. I admit, it was nice being able to throw my hair in a ponytail when I didn't have much time. Next time, I will roll first and then straighten.
