Of all the flat irons I've tried, this is by far the best! My hair is thick and wavy and HAI seems to magically turn it smooth and sleek. It might be a little pricy, but it's totally worth the money. On a positive note, at least the price allows for free shipping with most online sellers.
Best new curler! Looks weird, I know but my hair stylist used it on my hair and it was so simple. He just clamped it on a section of hair, flipped it over once and then continued to straighten and my hair came out awesome. HAI eLite Tong Ionic Iron - $129.00
Totally trying this! Split and braid your hair into two sections and tie with a rubberband. Twist the braid away from your face and then twist the flat iron onto your hair in the same direction your hair is twisted. Do not touch rubberband or else you will get that weird crease. Repeat this process twice! After hair is cooled, then take them out and run your fingers through the braid. Saw this on Rachel Ray Show. It gives you nice beachy waves!
