The video is pretty self explanatory and I included some flat ironing tips as well. As it states in the video I recorded this tutorial on 11/24 and maintained the look up until 12/14 by simply sticking to a very simple night routine of pin curling. I recorded clips of that process as well and I hope to get it edited and uploaded asap.
Just in case it's hard to read the captions I transcribed them for you below...

(0:41) Prepping To Flat Iron (in order):
Wash w/ Elucence Moisture Benefits Shampoo.
Condition w/ Aubrey Organics GPB Conditioner.
Deep conditioner overnight using Bee Mine's BEE-U-Tiful deep conditioner.
Rinse in the morning.
Apply Grape Seed Oil and allow the hair to air dry until damp.
Blow dry using the "Tension Method" ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ze5zxX... )

(2:2) Note: What looks like smoke is actually steam...Steam is the MaxiGlide's key feature. It helps to smooth the hair and gives shine!! If you look closely you can see me pressing the steam button :)

(3:41) The only products used to straighten my hair were Grape Seed Oil, which was apply when my hair was wet and Cantu "Super Shine" Hair Silk. Try not to pile on too many products, doing so can weight the hair down too much and cause buildup.

(7:15) High heat is NOT necessary to get "natural hair" straight! My
MaxiGlide is only set to level 4 (of 10) and although it's not bone straight it's close enough for me. Maintain a medium heat setting and use small/thin sections. This way you'll get it straight without having to go over it more than once, twice at the most. Slightly lowering the risk of heat damage.

(11:02) This video was recorded on 11/24 and I was able to maintain the look up until 12/14. I actually could have keep it straight longer, but my ends were screaming for water and my scalp needed a good wash!! Also I'm happy to report that my kinks and curls made a full recovery back to their natural selves lol! I won't front though...I always get nervous and feel like they just might not come back this time...but they did. Thank Goodness :) Flat ironing is risky business, be careful ladies!
