@Gemstone:  boo! that sucks!

I’ve never used a mini flat iron. I have semi thick hair and I use the Chi turbo and I love it!

I’ve never used a mini flat iron. I just got a new one last week and it’s amazing though (: It makes my hair so glossy and straightens really quickly (I have thick wavy/curlyish hair). There are a lot of YouTube reviews comparing it with the Chi and most people say they’re essentially the same. This is the one I got:

I didn’t know a flat iron could melt… Mine is about as old as yours, I hope it doesn’t melt!

@Mariska24:  (: That’s the list I used to help me pick a flat iron last week! The reviews are really helpful and sometimes they have promo codes to save you money on their ‘Best of’ winners.

OMG I’m glad it didn’t burn your hair off with it!! The only flat iron that I have ever loved was the Corioliss. I had it for years until I sadly dropped it on the bathroom floor and the ceramic plating smashed into pieces. May it rest in peace….

@Gemstone:  Make sure it’s cool before you trash it! lol  I use to have a Chi and the old models did work good, but now they suck! I spent $99 on one at Costco and they are very cheaply made. I love my hair and take good care of it, so I am picky on what I use. You may not believe it, but I found a GREAT hair straightener and it’s only like $30 online. My best friend uses it and I tried it and loved it so I bought one and bought one for my sister. It’s a remington. It goes up to 410*, turns off automatically after 1 hour, and has a lock/unlock switch to open and close. I looked up a coupon code and literally tax and shipping, paid $25.40. I couldn’t believe it, especially since I’m use to spending $200 for my straighteners.

Sorry that was so long.

If you buy from Trade Secret, they actually have a lifetime warranty on some straighteners, so you could just replace it if it happens again, for free!

I am pretty loyal to my CHI, but my stylist recommends BaByliss straighteners.  I will probably purchase one of those when/if my CHI gives out.  It’s going on 4 years now, so it is inevitable 🙂
