I will have to try that PM smoothing iron because I have tried them all and so far nothing compares to the CHI (in my opinion)
Don't know if this comes too late, I've just recently signed on.
I have the Infrashine ceramic iron, and I've found it to work very well. The ceramic is baked in, so it doesn't chip off. I've had clients try others, and end up coming in to buy. Not sure where you're located, but I get them thru West Coast Beauty Supply
Have you seen this? The whole front gets hot in addition to the plates. It is spectacular. I saw it work at the Chicago Midwest show and instanly loved it. You can do a bunch of awesome effects with it.
I looked at the site fromthe link you provided, and it looks amazing!
I was a bit confuded on how to order one. Are there supply houses that carry these or do you buy from the company?
Do you have any idea about the cost of the iron?
I think it depends where you buy but I got mine for about $100
You can go here to find a distributor. http://www.artizenusa.com/pages/distributor1.html
Otherwise call the company I guess.
I have been using the chi iron for a year now, along with all of the chi products. It is the best iron I have ever worked with, not only does it get the hair straight, but if you use the chi keratin mist, and the silk infusion, the hair is left in a very shiny, soft condition. Excellant for people who have frizzy hair.
Has anyone tried the Sedu irons? I haven't bought a flat iron yet and was surfing the internet for reviews on them. This looks like a good one and got very good reviews as well.
Just curious if anyone owns one. Also, what is the best size to get? 1 1/2", 1 1/4" or 1" ??
may all you do & see be so hard it's easy-zarah
Keep the growing going!
Keep on sharing!!!
Sedu is better than Chi

Our salon just switched to Croc Titanium Ceramic. We have used Chi in the past and the Croc is better by far, with faster finish time. We use them on all hair types with beautiful results. Price is around $110
Hair is a fabic that has similiar properties to other natural fibers. It is very strong but has limits. If you apply any brand of hot iron to wet hair you will hear snap,crackle, pop. These tiny explosions are the result of steam escaping from the hair shaft (like popcorn), when examined under a microsope you will find tears and holes in the hair strand from this escaping steam. Even though the manufacturers say that the irons can be used on wet hair there is extreme damage caused by doing this.
Welcome to the BTC Talk Back Boards! Please take a few moments to read over the board rules in the green box above. Nice to have you with us.
I know this is an old thread, but if there are still people out there shopping for flat irons, folica.com has a lot of customer reviews that helped me a lot.
I ended up going with the Solia 1 1/4", and I'm very happy with it. My stylist uses a CHI and it just seems like it dries my hair out and makes it lack shine. Solia is great, very smooth.. doesn't pull my hair like the CHI and makes it SHINY.
Just go read the reviews and make the decision for yourself, but I'd highly recommend Solia. Good price too.
In my salon and for personal use, I use Chi original. I recently chopped my hair off really short. The problem I'm having is I'm always burning myself. I never burnt myself when I had long hair nor do I have that problem at the salon since I'm working on somebody else. I only have that problem at home, working on myself. I need to get a new flat iron for home use that will help with my burning problem. What does everybody recommend?
