Q
I have really thick, short hair. I am wondering what kind of flat iron would be best to use on my hair. It’s really hard to keep my hair straight and shiny because it’s so coarse. —Nicollette

A
You want to use a flat iron with either ceramic or titanium heating plates. These technologies will help your hair to remain healthier throughout the silkening process. Be sure to use a heat protectant, too. Shea butter will also help to give coarse hair great shine without leaving it greasy.
