Flat Irons / Hair Straighteners

Recommended Posts

I have hair that is really curly and for me I have to blow dry straight then takes hrs for the flatiron from the salon i used to go to get it straight. I got the maxxi glide thing and omg with dry curly hair it takes minutes instead of hrs.

My daughter is a stylist and she got me a GHD for christmas. I think it was about $115.00 with her discount. I love it and I have very naturally curly hair.

After burning the crap outta my hair with those cheap drugstore brand flat irons frown.gif, I finally invested in a great flat iron about 4 years ago. I did a bunch of research and found that the best fit for me was the Sedu Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline Iron ~ which is a combination of ceramic and tourmaline technology. It has been a Godsend for bad hair days and has kept my hair healthy and damage-free for all these years!

 

Here's the link on where I purchased it, although I've also seen it at ULTA stores and with one of their 20% coupons, that's an awesome deal!!!

I think ceramic is the best for your hair because it doesn't fry it as much. I have really curly hair and a CHI flatiron is the only one that really gets out all the kinks in my hair. My mom bought it a long time ago, and never used it. I was stoked when she just gave it to me. They can be a little pricey, but I would say that it's definitely worth it!

I have 2 chi flat irons, 1 paul mitchell flat iron (pretty much made by the company that makes the chi) and 1 HAI T3 tourmaline 2" wet/dry flat iron. My favorite is the HAI T3 tourmaline. Leaves my hair smoother and not as dry. Chi irons are good, but you need to buy it from a real salon or a store that will offer a 1 year warrenty. Chi irons are notorious for defects and when I worked for a distributor of Chi irons we had so many exchanges for Chi irons. In fact, there was a chi exchange program set up just for the irons. So, if the salon or store doesn't offer you a good warrenty, skip it. I say go for the T3, get a great carbon comb with teeth spaced close together (I use a rattail) so it doesn't pull your hair, use a heat protector product ( I love Goldwells Kerasilk) take sections of your hair and go for it. When I flat iron my hair from it's gianormous curly mass (my black and jewish heritage) you would never know that my hair is as thick as it is.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
