  • An ISO and GHD are good too
    Also try EBAY first. My friend got hers for 60 and they sell for around 200

  • my hair is very thick and curly. i have used the chi and really doesn't do that great. again my hair is curly. i have to have a cobm and the chi in order to work. one that I really like is the maxiglide by maximus. it has teeth embeded in the plates of the iron that combs through the hair. i got it 6 years ago and works great. although its a bit heavy but works great. you can also go to www.folica.com and do compairisons and read reviews.

  • for really thick/curly hair, you need to do it in steps...products first to smooth/flatten the cuticle (shampoo/cond/silicone styling aid-etc), dry hair in sections-aiming nozzle downward to 'convince' the cuticle to lay down..when completely dry...use chi in sections again..once you get your technique down, the timing will get quicker and it won't seem like such a 'process'...but it is a process!
