Hair straightening

Have any of you had l'oreal xtenso hair straightening done? If so has it worked and do you now have super soft straight hair. I have highlighted curly hair, any info would be great.

i haven't just a slave to my ghd straigteners everyday! so would be very interested in hearing if anyone else has had it done too!

Kittypower - seeing as you have bleach on your hair (ie streaks) I would avoid getting it done as the process is a similar process to perming just the opposit effect.
It is very damaging and doesn't last long apparently.
Hope this helps

i know someone at work who has had it done and loves it... she has afro style hair and it is quite dry but does not look frizzy... she reckons it saves her an hour a day getting ready to go out..

thanks for your messages, i went to the hairdresser to have this done last night and she said that i had pre lightening highlights which means i can't have x tenso, very disappointed! i had images of easy straight hair and instead i am still stuck with the ghd's! do any of you know any other chemical straightening systems i could try? thanks
