I used this on my sisters hair, who has very kinky stubborn, thick hair. I did everything to it, but only this straightner was the answer. I brought this from Tjmaxx for 16 dollars at clearance....

I loved how inexpensive this flat iron was. I used to work in a salon and I found that this was about the same quality as the ones we used years ago. However, there has been a lot of developments...
