I did a search and only saw threads from 2009-2010, when I know everyone was on the BKT bandwagon. But I didn't see any recent threads... After MANY years of eyeing this product, I've finally decided to try Softliss Chocolate BKT and wear my hair straight for a while. I'm still a bit nervous about a severe texture change and possible heat damage. In addition to the Softliss, I've ordered the magic teflon tape to go over my FHI Heat flatiron, and some Sabino moisture block. I also plan to increase my DCs and moisturization prior to doing the BKT. Is there anything else I need to get or do to help minimize my chances of getting heat damage? I've had it before despite using quality tools and what I thought was adequate protection (Chi Silk Infusion).
