Flat-Out Fab

Hey girls,
PLEASE keep an open mind, finance-wise, because I really need to gush about my new favorite flatiron. Really quickly: I haven't had a relaxer in 79 years (not growing it out, just too lazy to make it happen). So I have roots galore, and I'm over headbands. Searching for answers, I talked to my girl at famed Warren Tricomi salon, who recommended the Warren Tricomi Miniature Professional Flat Iron ($90), a lighter-than-air, 6-inch miracle (it fits into my purse!) that's the PERFECT size to straighten-out pesky roots and kitchen issues in two seconds. And this thing has no problem getting as hot as it's bigger counterparts. It gets so hot, in fact, that it comes with an adorable "heat mitt" you wear while handling the flatiron (it's so tiny that the whole thing blazes, not just the panels). Anyway, for the past two weeks my hair has looked freshly touched up. Like you wouldn't believe. Seriously, whether you're growing out your perm or just lazy, and you want your hair texture to look consistent, this little moment is a MUST. $90 well spent.

I just purchased a Sedu to go along with my old Chi. So, that means a little additional penny pinching, because neither one of those irons hits that kitchen.

I have a Chi flat iron and it works too and it costs around the same if not more.

I need chi doesn't hit like I need it to when I get to that 3 week mark. You know, too soon for a touch up...but one is needed?

I'm glad you posted about this. I'm in the market for a new one, and I think I've found it.

They are coming out with these things like Jordans...every Saturday. I have a CHI iron that was around 130 and now this...I sooo want it but its not a need, or is it?

Tia, is it good for a whole head of hair or just touch-ups? my high school curls have come back in full force over the last few months (love those hormones) and I'm just not sure what to do. for now I'm just frizzy.

Hey Sha-Bowles,
It's really good just for touch-ups. For a full head of hair, I'd try a full-size flatiron. A Chi one, if you're willing to part with some cash!

Okay, I would like to grow out my perm, and have not permed my hair for over a month now-My hair is frizz central. What should I do to keep my hair looking decent (I would still like to have it straight and manageable) without doing damage to it -what products and regimen do you suggest (shampoo, conditioner, etc)-with a student's budget?

Hello Tia.

I have short to medium hair and am growing out a relaxer.
I was going to purchase the Sedu 1 inch off of but it is sold out.

Any recs?
I have heard that Sedu is better than CHI so I was wondering if there were some sleeper flat irons out there that do not get much credit.

Anybody have a recommendation for a really good straightening balm? I've been thinking about trying Aveda.

if you're growing out your hair keep conditioned!!! this is so important. I didn't want to cut my hair all off so i just got it conditioned and pressed every two weeks and got it trimmed every 6-8 weeks to cut out the perm slowly. you really just have to train your hair. and girl you DO NOT HAVE TO CUT IT ALL OFF!!! It's a myth!!! i didn't! hope this helps.i stuck with my olive oil line of products too. but i heard carrols daughter has great stuff too. i'm in philly and am a college student too. i couldn't afford the black salons. i kept going to the dominicans they still got it straight and on a budget too. but they had to press it as well.

I've seen this baby in action - it's amazing. A must-have for sure!

I just became a flat iron convert. Finally let my Dominican stylist use the flat iron and one week later my hair is still looking good. Since I'm a newbie do you ladies think I should stick with the tried and true CHI or the Sedu? This mini iron looks fab but knowing me I'd burn off half my forehead before I got it right. I am not trying to relive my middle school bang/curling iron catastrophe. Not at all.

Thanks in advance girls!!!

Hi. You hear it all the time, but it won't kill you to read it again, your blog fabulash.
How are you not bald from frequently touching up your roots and kitchen with such a hot iron? I've always wondered if frequent use of a flat iron is just another way of asking to be bald. Please advise. Thanks!

hmm sounds like exactly what I need. I've been getting Japanese straightened for years and am growing it out now. No one ever has a real solution for this in between period - this might just be it!

okay, i'm a loser...i've never used a flat-iron but i frequently get Dominican blowouts. will a flat iron get my coarse roots in between visits? what's the difference between that and a pressing comb?

I initially purchased the Warren Tricomi mini flat iron but took it back when my hairstylist found the T-Pro Slik Stik Mini. It's a fraction of the cost and exactly the same ($29.99). In fact I think it's better than the WT flat iron. My fiance had to bend the plates on the WT flat iron because they didn't touch. The T-Pro was perfect when I received it.
