I use Pixelmator. Reply Ama B. December 1, 2013 at 9:05 pm I like to detangle my hair because some straighteners have those little combs attached, better yet, get rid of the combs. I also like to get my hair straight before I straighten it, so the night before I might cross wrap 🙂 This helps because you end up using more heat on curlier or wavier hair. http://immabeama.blogspot.com/ Reply Jen December 6, 2013 at 11:08 pm Cross wrapping the night before is a great idea.
