    Yeah I adore mine but I really have to be careful because I can see fine hairs that have broken off if I overuse it.

    I use a Hai flat iron, which cost about a $100 but I've had it for almost 4 years. Well worth it. I also use a Super Solano blow dryer which helps the straightening process. While my hair is wet I use Kerastase Oleo Relax to help it look nice and sleek and keep the frizz down

My hair is thick, coarse and frizzy and those are the only products that tame the frizz and make my hair shiny and smooth.
    I use the Chi flat iron too. It costs about $100 but its worth it. It works really well.

    Hi guys... was wondering if any of you are familiar with the Kamashi Tourmaline straightener? I just got one from e-bay for a good deal (I hope!) and am excited for it to arrive. It could be a big bunch of BS, but supposedly straighteners made from tourmaline don't do as much damage. Anyone heard this or have I been duped? I'm a sucker for this kind of stuff. Thanks!

    Let us know how it works out!

    I have a Hot Tools, shich is just okay. I'm considering a straightening process that my stylist recommends. It takes around four hours. Ugh.

    Here's my story with the whole Tourmaline thing. It wasn't on a Tourmaline straightener, but the blow dryer. Anyway, I splurged on a T3 Tourmaline hair dryer ($300) and I thought it was a waste of money. But, here's why. I have a lot of wavy hair, so even though it dried my hair thoroughly in no time, it does nothing to assist in the straightening process. I still had to use a flat iron, so I was doing just as much damage. Anyway, I returned it. I went back to using the Solano, which I can straighten my hair with using a round brush. Just my two cents.

    I use my hair straghtner everyday as well. It's not good for my hair, but the one I use is the wet to dry hair...apparently I read somewhere that if hair is straightened when wet is does less damage. I like this one I am using because it can straighten wet or dry hair.

    ^^ i have never heard bout the less damage when wet thing before. I got a GHD i absolutly love it - i use protective spray and conditioning treatments all the time to counteract the damage. I think GHD straighteners are the best. The plates are also small enough that you can create waves and curls with it.

    Finally got my flat iron... LOVE IT!! I can change the temp (maybe that's not too special - just a new feature for me) and I only need to do each chunk of hair once. It made my hair super-slick straight.. and shiny, too. I'll have my hubby take a before/after shot this weekend to post.

    Have a great day, all!
