I have naturally curly/wavy hair, and I usually like to leave it that way. For the most part, I quite like my curls. I think they suit me :-)
The only times that I straighten my hair is when my hair is in need of a cut, and therefore the curls aren't behaving and I need to fix my hair somehow, or for practical reasons. I mean, let's face it, curly hair is very unpredictable.
It takes about an hour (maybe a little less) to straighten my hair, depending if I blow dry it first (which I hate doing) or if I just straighten it from the curls. It straightens really well, it just takes a lot more effort to do.
To be perfectly honest, one reason I like my curly hair, is because it sets me apart a bit from all the other girls my age who straighten their hair. And like I said, I think the curls suit me.
I used to straighten my hair all the time. But now I just can' be bothered. Its waayyy too much effort. I have really thick and long hair and naturally, its crazy curly/wavy. So to straighten it, it would take 20-30 min to get it straightened decently. LOL..and if I want it really slick and straight then another 10mins of it. Drives me insane. So I stopped and wear my natural hair out everywhere now.. sigh.
I have wavy hair. I used to straighten it everyday but stopped because I didn't want my hair to get damaged. I'm also very active do it was pointless since I'd finish my workout & my hair was all gangly and sweaty.
It only takes me 15 minutes to my whole head. If I want it pin straight 30 minutes.
I straighten my hair like once a month if I feel like it. Today, like most days I wore it styled like this link Takes me 2 hours if I rush and do a horrible job..takes twice as long if I focus and take breaks.
It takes me about 2-4 hours to straighten, depending on how far my last relaxer has grown out. I have very dense, coarse, curly hair naturally. But even if I just relaxed it, you still have to take your time with it.
I don't straighten it often because I'm lazy & don't feel like spending that much time doing it all by myself when I can never seem to get it pin-straight like the stylists can, anyway.
I have natural wavy/curly hair and I hate it! I bought a flat iron about 4 years ago, and I straighten my hair as often as possible. It takes me about 10 minutes max. My hair is pretty long too, maybe to the middle of my back. I wish I could do Japanese straightening but it causes too much damage to the hair.
I don't do it often, since I have naturally straight hair. But it usually only takes around 5-10 minutes. Curling my hair takes a really long time for me though, I find it so difficult and it usually takes about an hour or more :(
I have wavey hair. I straighten it every now and then (2-4 times a month), I used to every day because it felt to short if not. It probably took me 10-15 minutes to straighten it then, maybe a little longer than that now.
