Following the Straight and Narrow

Most anyone witih longish or frizzy or curly hair has at one time or another used a flat iron.  I’ll even use one on my pencil straight and smooth hair. 

 But what now? An easier way?  Can we really skip the drying step? A few companies claim it to be.  Introducing the wet to dry flat iron.  A few months ago I was able to try out a mildly expensive wet flat iron and I only have one thing to say: It may save you a step but it will not save you time. 

Yes they do make it straight, but you have to go over it 5, 6, 7 times before a small section is actually dry. 

Clockwise from top right:

TurboPower Forma Tourmaline Wet 2 Dry ($139)

ITech Wet & Dry Tourmaline Iron ($199.99)

Farouk Chi Auto-Digital Wet to Dry Ceramic Ionic Flat Iron ($134.89)

Remington Wet 2 Straight Slim Plate ($24.85)- just remember if the ITech I used for $200 barely worked, what do you think this will accomplish?


       It doesn’t matter if you’re using a flat iron on your poor hair every day, only occasionally, or even just blowing it dry, you really must protect your hair from all the heat damage.  ThermaFuseis an entire product line specifically geared to doing just that. Also, there are many lines that contain a few odds and ends that will guard against this hot abuse.
