    No problem at 6 inches - straighten away.

    oh and a heat spray is a good idea to protect your hair from scorching/burning with the straightening

    As someone above said though, it depends on how thick your hair is, but I think that since you won't be having it very long and will be trimming it often it won't be too bad for your hair

    Have fun!
    oh and a spray will definitely be a good idea just to protect your hair

    It always depends on your hair type. My hair took years of iron abuse before it became damaged.
    From experience, you will probably get:
    breakage at ends and all over
    uneven ends
    split ends
    dry ends
    rougher/coarser/frizzy strands
    possibly more curl (ironic, I know)
    IMO, heat protection is a myth, rather they mean cones. There are some other threads about this.
    growwwwww..

    if I tug on my hair, will it grow faster?

    I used a hair straightner a while ago almost everyday and it totally fried my hair but it probably depends on the type of straightener and the heat level.
    mbl hoping to get to wl by the end of 2010

    I'd use the heat-protection spray if I were you; it will give a better finish.

    I was gonna buy this straightener: http://www.sallybeauty.com/ceramic-f...cgid=Hair09-06

    But I have no clue about what sprays work best or if thats even good...I have seen some expensive ones but I doubt I could bring myself to buy one...
