I love my NUME vintage! I used to have the NUME Fashionista which I also loved, but I left it in a hotel room in Montreal. 🙁 Sadness. Hence, the NUME Vintage was my replacement. I think I like the Vintage better b/c it has temperature settings. I got the 3SUM pack from NUME, and it had the Vintage, a curling rod, and a mini flat-iron that is so cute! If you decide to go with them, look for coupons! The Youtube beauty gurus are always announcing some coupon code, so they are out there!

As for flat iron spray, I really love that Keratin infused one that comes in a brown bottle (has matching shampoo and conditioner) – like Brazilian keratin or something? I forget the brand name, but it’s in a dark tan/brown bottle in the salon hair care section of Target. It smells like coconuts, which is always nice. If not that one, the Garnier Flat Iron spray also worked well.

I have a digital chi flat iron. Don’t know if you know this but chi makes some low end versions of their flat irons. They don’t get as hot or work as well. You could get the salon quality ones online and sometimes even TJ Maxx. You also have to make sure the ends of the iron are curved to allow you to make curls with the iron. 

I use SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil before I blow dry and straighten. It makes my hair feel awesome, and my hair def grew thanks to this oil. Also, this is the only oil I tried that I didn’t get oily with. I could put as much as I want and my hair won’t feel sticky, it just soaks it right in!

The Solia Tourmaline Ceramic is the best flat iron I’ve ever used.

As for a protective product, I recommend Aveda’s Brilliant Damage Control Spray.

My flat iron is cheap, but it’s by fair the best one I’ve used!

It’s the Wet-to-straight by Conair or Revlon (can’t remember)…but it’s like $25 at Walgreens.  

Seriously though, best straightener I’ve ever used.

I have frizzy somewhat curly/wavy/mind of it’s own hair. NC’s humidity is horrible too! 

With this straightener, you don’t have to dry your hair.  There is a setting if your hair is wet, and a setting if your hair is dry, and you can adjust the temp.

I usually blast my wet hair quickly at the roots to dry my roots some, then straighten it while its damp.  It takes a couple passes, but once it’s dry, it will not frizz!

I don’t really use thermal sprays.  I condition everytime I wash my hair and I’ve never had a problem with it drying out or getting fried or damaged from the straightener. I do use a leave in conditioner spray…I wouldn’t be able to comb out the tangles without it!

I have a Chi flat iron (it’s about 3 years old now) but it works just as well as day one. I find that my hair is very shiny and smooth and it works great for curling as well. To be honest, lately I’ve been using it more for curling then straightening! It’s this one…

As for thermal spray, I’ve used Chi 44 Iron Guard (it came with my straightener) and I liked it,  but I also just bought Pantene Heath Protection & Shine Spray, it’s like $7 at Shopper’s/Walmart and I feel like it does the same thing as the CHI spray.

@MizzStark1026:  I have one of the TJ Maxx Chi irons!

OP- They work great on small secions of hair or occasional use!

I have a CHI and I love it.  I also have a Salono Sapphire, but I do not care very much for that one.

I use a Jilbere titanium flat Iron. I have a 1.5 inch wide, a 1inch wide, and a Curl Wand, and I absolutely love them both! I got them from Sally’s.
