Would you rather have your hair chemically straightened or use a flat iron everyday?

My hair is naturally curly/wavy and I'm not someone who likes to use heat often, but I just got a haircut and I don't like the way my hair looks unless it is straight. As of now, I've been using a flat iron with heat protectant. I'm thinking about getting my hair chemically straightened, but it's expensive and you have to get it retouched. I'm really stuck between the two because they BOTH have their pros and cons. I understand both methods contain some form of damage but do you think one is better than the other? What would you choose?
