Hair Straightner

Tiffani

My Flat Iron is on its way to death (not quite!) and I need a new one soon.
Any advice? Chi? GHD? Paul Brown?
Thanks !

take care

Hey Hunter_JC
Flat Irons are quite damaging to your hair. You have to buy one that is good, and I use mine alot. I have natually straight hair, but am still partial to my iron. Using one everyday means I have to pay attention to conditioning my hair and getting regular haircuts.
You also cannot screw around and buy cheap crappy straighners. Mine that I have right now cost me around$150.00

Sedu

I bought a Sedu at folica.com. I think it's this one: http://www.folica.com/Sedu_Ionic_Cera_d1557.html

I've had it for about a year now and it works really well for me.

Before I decided to get this one I had bought a crappy one at Shoppers and it was definitely not worth it. It took forever to warm up and didn't even do a good job. The Sedu warms up in about 10secs and I only have to go over each section of hair once.

I was debating between Sedu and Chi. Chi has also had a lot of good reviews and I tried my friend's that had one. That was also good. But for whatever reason I decided on a Sedu instead. I think it was because it was a little bit more expensive but came with an extra year warranty.

I think you can only get a Sedu online but you can buy a Chi almost anywhere. I've seen Chi's at Beauty Supply Outlet and at salons.

Another thing you could do is ask your hair dresser about it. I asked mine and she said she could get me the same one that she uses on my hair, but it was expensive, almost $200 so I said no. If you're close with your hair dresser she might be able to give you a deal on one.

Yay

Thanks Tigerlilly
I'm acually considering that one! Yay foe Sedu! I think its $115.00
I was recommended that one, I think it might be the one!
I am using my old one still and its starting to smoke! Oh Oh.
I told my husband that this is a purchase he can expect on the credit card soon. I am holding out cause its expensive, but I won't be buying a cheap one.

Chi

Hey there,

I have a chi and it's awesome. The higher end straighteners arn't as damaging as the cheaper ones. I would recommend using a thermal protection spray to protect your hair prior to straightening. Chi makes one called 'Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray' or Paul Mitchell's 'Heat Seal.

Hope this helps.

infomercial sucker

Whenever the infomercial for the Kiyoseki straightener comes on, I'm so tempted to order one. Has anyone used this product? I'm naturally suspicious of anything sold on an infomercial - the only thing I've ordered AND 100% liked are my SpaceBags.
