Then, I got this one and it is very slim, as shown in the picture, but it is substantial -- you can tell just by picking it up that it is heavy duty and high quality.
In the past I didn't use a straightener often, because in the past 2 years I lived in a tropical rainforest in Panama, and for the first time I had wavy, body to my hair that I liked! Now that I am back in the states I have flat hair with no body, except there are certain kinks to it that I need to control. And this is perfect for that!
Gurin Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener, 1.25 inch with Carrying Case
Here are the highlights:
1. There is a temperature setting that you can choose the right temperature. I set it to 350F for my fine long hair.
2. You can use it to straighten wavy or curly hair, or just tame the flyaways. And you also can twist it around your hair for loose curls.
3. It is very slim -- only 1 1.4" wide.
4. And it is on sale now at Amazon HERE for only $24.95!!
And here is a picture of me with my sister using this on my hair after she did my makeup (I don't use makeup this dramatic so it was a fun time "playing around" with my sis!)
And here is my hair once it was complete:
I have to mention that I JUST moved to a very dry climate earlier this week, from the Central American tropical rainforest I was living in, so my skin will take a few weeks before it will adjust.... And my hair, I am hoping it will adjust soon! Otherwise I will have to use this hair straightener every day to help with the fly aways and frizzies.
