Note: I'm a guy and therefore clueless. Does the moisturizing help release the curls? Also, ever thought of leaving big curls? (Not that big) I thought they looked nice too

Thanks. I like the big curls too. The moisturizing helps to soften the hair and not make it too dry.

I had no idea that you could use saran wrap for this. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for commenting. This method works to straighten without using a flat iron.
