I never thought I'd spend $100 on a hair styling tool, that has always seemed just excessive and wasteful to me. For years, I used a dinky $9.99 hair straightener. It took forever to heat up, but there was never actually that much heat and it never got my hair quite as straight as I wanted, but I was fine with it because I didn't know any better. That is... until I borrowed my friend's Farouk CHI original flat iron. Oh man, I was instantly hooked.
The Farouk CHI took literally 10 seconds to heat up to 240 degrees, and with one swipe through each section of hair, my hair became instantaneously straight. No need for a second or third round like other flat irons! Within 15 minutes, all of my hair was straight, shiny and gorgeous. That's pretty darn impressive for doing it myself. One look in the mirror and I knew I had to purchase a Farouk CHI flat iron of my own.
Tip #1: CHI also has an awesome line of hair styling products that can be purchased at beauty supply stores or even Target. Before flat ironing your hair, I suggest spraying it with CHI's Iron Guard spray, and then post-flat ironing, finish it off with CHI's Shine Infusion spray.
Tip #2: As fabulous as this flat hair iron is, I wouldn't use it religiously because all that direct heat can really damage your hair. I only run it through my hair when it's extra unruly or if I'm going out for a night on the town!
