Not crazy about this flat iron but you get what you pay for. I bought this at Winners for about $45 and it has lasted a few years. With that being said, my hair is medium-thick and it does not get...

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....

This is a great product to prevent heat damage to your hair. The ceramic plate is gentle on your hair. A very easy product to use. I do use it about 5 times a week and it makes a huge difference...

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...
