I got a $100 CHI last fall -- I'm still learning to use it like the stylist at the salon -- sigh. It must be something in the angle of her wrist that can make my hair knife-point shart and smooth -- the perfect shape. I even bought a thermal protectant and smoothing product! Any hints?
Yeah - a good flat iron can rock one's world. My curls are good but I have no patience with them. Hence the straightened hair every day. I just invested in my 1st flat iron about a week ago. Love it!P.S. Um...you look sexy. Hubba, hubba.
I've been using Rusk Wired. A little goes a long way! I put it in while wet and blow dry. I also find something to do in the house for 15 minutes (fold laundry, load dishwasher,etc) so it can TOTALLY air dry before I iron it...that seems to help. Sectioning is a must too. I start at the bottom and do 4 seperate sections.
Oh, and mine is a 2" Turbo....the only way to go if you have thick hair like I do. They go for $200+ in the salons, but I scored mine on EBay for $85, free shipping, and paypal gave me 20% back on it (some pre-Christmas promo)....so it came to $68! Love the GONGA~!
Told ya so! I've had my 2" turbo for almost two years now and still love it! Glad you love yours, too.Nice paint in that last photo, btw. :)
A good flat iron is a girls best friend. At least its mine. I recently upgraded to a Paul Mitchell and I am in LOVE. It's pricey but I told Alan I use daily on four girls (yep) hair and that makes it worth it, right?
I tried it again yesterday with a little hair gel (light but super powerful). I dried it, then ironed it and it seemed to do better than when it's just plain, dry hair. I think I'll ask my stylist about rusk wired or something similar when I go in next time.... thanks for the hints -- I'll keep working until I get it the way I like it!Happy Baptism and confirmation to Savi today! We're thinking of you all and hope the spirit of the day lingers beautifully....Love, S
Especially for $80.00. You rock diva!!!!
