This little flat iron has changed my life. Summer heard about it from a friend, passed the word on to me, and I'm passin' it on to y'all.
As you know, I'm growing my relaxer out. Pretty hard to do that gracefully without cutting it off or getting braids. I pulled this iron through my hair and it literally changed it before my eyes! My hair looked like I had gone to the beauty shop...shiny and with so much body. Later I topped it off with Biosilk, it's crazy--if that stuff can make a natural shine, you know it makes straight hair look like glass.
Aside from the color change (my roots are black and the relaxed hair is brown) you can't tell where natural meets relaxed. My days of breakage and pressing grease are over. At first I was going to cut my hair in December, but now I won't have to. I can grow my relaxer all the way out wearing my hair long since there's no danger of breakage now.
The Chi Flat Iron by Farouk is ceramic, and a professional tool--a small investment, but worth every copper penny.
Yay! Now I don't have to always look like I'm between touch-ups...to my mom's delight, I'm sure.
Like India says, I am not my hair. However, my hair is me. And Me likes to switch it up. Once I am 100% natural, with little effort AND without grease & a hot-comb, I can rock a straight style when I feel the need to blend in. Thanks to Chi, it's on.
