Are Paul Mitchell hair straighteners THAT different than regular brands, like conair?

My friends swear by it, say nothings better than the Paul Mitchell shampoos, conditioners and straighteners? Any experiences. I have really frizzy and curly hair, kind of dry but not too much.

  • i haven't used their tools (probably as good as most SALON/professional brands, not cheap-store do get what you pay for sometimes!), but their SuperSkinny line of hair products are great for taming wild, frizzy, big hair. when working with all three main products, the shampoo/conditioner/serum, blow-drying and straightening is ALOT easier and less time-consuming. another thing, unlike a lot of smoothing/straightening products, the superskinny serum will not weigh the hair down, or make it feel greasy. i've used liberal amounts on longer hair that has good curl, or tends to frizz a lot, and never have a problem with 'the usual feel'. i'd definitely recommend those three products. or at least the conditioner and serum, if you're having to budget.

  • Yes, salon brands are MUCH nicer than store brands. For your hair, you will LOVE the Curls Rock System by TIGI Catwalk. Get the Curls Rock Amplifier and Booster to start. Venture into the hairspray (if you use one) and the leave in if you find your hair gets a little frizzy.
