How To: Straighten Hair

When it comes to straightening I feel like your straightener should be an investment a $20 straightener just is not going to get the job done like a professional straighter would. I have tried Croc (loved it until it broke a year later argh!), CHI (stripped color from my hair), Revlon (fried my hair)... you get the point. I felt like all hope was lost until I met "The Seductress" by Sultra.
The Seductress is completely different from any other straightener that I have tried before. 
• Kyocera Ceramtic Technology mends the hair and provides constant and even heat.
• Provides three temperature settings designed specifically for fine, normal or thick hair. FINALLY! :]
• The Seductress is going to run you about $210.... but it's definitely worth every penny.

• note: I never do this... I just did it for the purpose of this post to show you how amazing this straightener is.

Usually takes me an hourish

  6. Amazing!! I have really fine, thin hair, so I don't straighten my hair often. I have a Hana Professional iron, and I love it!

  7. I straighten my hair once a week. I feel the same way though, you need a good one. I got mine for $180 last year and it does a great job every time. Plus my hair doesn't look damaged so it's totally worth the extra $$$!

  9. I alternate between using a straightener and a curling iron - my hair is naturally straight and I have it cut quite short so I use both depending on the effect I want.

  14. Sometimes I do and the trick is to take small sections as my hair is really thick and coarse!

  16. I used to blowdry and straighten my hair all the time, but about 2 years ago I made the decision to stop. My hair was getting killed and it needed a break. Now, I usually just let it air dry and work with that, unless I have somewhere to go and actually want nice hair!

  17. Aah, I missed the blogosphere and the daily updates from you. You have beautiful hair but straightening thick hair is such a pain! I got my flat iron from Costco (T3) and it works great!

  18. Wish I had that problem... my hair is as straight as it gets!

  19. i need to get a flat iron desperately... this is really cool!

  20. First- thank you so much for your sweet comment! We've been working hard on the house so it's so good to hear comments about it! Second- I've been looking for a great new straightener! I currently have a CHI and it's dying so I will definitely check this out, thanks!

  21. OOoh this straightener looks fantastic! I'm fortunate enough to not have to straighten my hair everyday. When I have somewhere special I have to go to, I put in the extra effort to straighten my hair, but not usually. :)

  22. I straighten my hair pretty much every day, but I usually use the blow dryer and a round brush to do the job. I haven't found a straightener that I like. I'll totally check this one out :)

  23. I was lucky or *unlucky* enough to be born with boring stick straight hair! We want what we don't have.

  24. Whoa!! Fancy! My Revlon straightener has lasted me years and done really well on my hair and I'm always the designated straightener-bringer on girls' trips! But my hair needs to be in the right mood, preferably freshly dried and already partly straight. If I go from wet-bun-hair-craziness like yours it would never work!
