Since I tend to have multiple personality syndrome when it comes to my hair - I have several different ways I can fix it. My two lazy ways include scrunching it curling and a ponytail. Not sure why, but Mr. Right loves my hair pulled back in a ponytail. Lucky for me because most of the time he sees me right after I get finished at the gym! :) I use a great curl product - but I'll save that for another TILT.
Today I want to blog about my Conair curling iron as well as my straightening iron.
I purchased the straightener about 3 years ago after using a friend's. Its high powered heat gave my hair that polished, straight from the salon look. The main problem was that she had to have a glove on her hand as she did her hair. The iron gets so hot that you can't touch your hair immediately afterward for fear of burning yourself. I suppose that's why on the makeover shows, the stylists are shown with a comb in their hand to hold the hair.
I didn't consider we had two different hair types, so I started using my straightener on high heat. She has very coarse, curly hair, so in order to get her hair straight - the high setting is a must. My hair is thick and full, but not at all coarse (thanks to my mother keeping her hair genes to herself). When I went to the stylist for my next cut, he told me that the heat was damaging my hair. I cut back to half heat and its more than enough to do the job, but not ruin my hair.
As I started growing my hair out, I purchased a fat barrelled curling iron. Since I loved my straightener so much, I opted to get the same kind - Conair, paying close attention to make sure its ceramic. And I produced wonderful results. I've even been told my hair looks like Hayden Panettiere - that chick that plays Claire on Heroes.
