You can find the Remington at Ulta... that's where I got mine. I really don't ever flat iron my hair - so I dont' need a chi, but the remington Is actually quite good... my friend started using it in her salon to help speed up the process of straightening.

I heard it was good too... I use to have one in fact. I just got mine at Kmart for $35 i think...

I didn't really work well on my hair, but i think that's just my hair.


yeah they sell it online too, a more expensive iron will probably satisfy you better.

Hi,

I've heard mixed reviews on this straightener because "they" say you never should straighten your hair with it wet, causes a lot of damage. I've had my hair professionally straightened (Thermal Reconditioning) and it has grown out now, so I use my Chi quite often, I have the wide one and the skinny one (not sure of the exact dimensions) I love them both. Any kind of straightening with an iron is bad for your hair, so I only wash my hair about 2 times a week, thank goodness I can get away with this. HTH.

Try Ebay! Ya never know!

I bought one of my Chi's from MUA - and the other one I bought from beautytalk.com. Just put a message out there about ceramic flat irons that people don't use or have for sale. I got great buys on mine!!!

Ironing is damaging - not matter how you look at it... the heat is so concentrated, and the temps. usually get pretty high - so if you are going to be using it regularly, invest in a good heat-protectant spray!


They have that iron at this other site, but its the same price as folica.com

Yeah - and everything at Sally is usually comparable to a high end product... so it's pretty decent. Probably a similar version of the CHI

You can also try Biolage Fortifying Heat Styler, or L'Oreal Studio line just came out with 2 new products for curly and straight hair heat styling. (Pink bottles)

I bought the Remington W2S and I wasn't hugelyimpressed, but it's still a neat concept. I need to tinker with it a little more because I may have it on too cool of a setting (trying to be careful.)

My one gripe is that I have tried a few different protectants and my hair felt MORE parched when I used product with the Remington, than when I didn't. The userguide doesn't say anything about using protectant or other product.

Which protectant are you using?? Also are you straightening your hair from a dry/damp state or is it soaking wet? You also have to take into consideration the condition of your hair too. I find I get better results with it if my hair is already damp/somewhat dry first. I also find I get better results from cream protectants than sprays. I like Biolage Heat Styler... seems to work nicely. I really don't iron much though - my shampoo, conditioner & straightening tonic get it pretty straight on its own w/ just the dryer. Ever since I've been using them, my hair looks like I ironed it, that SUPER straight look with pin straight ends... and its better for my hair not to use the iron.. so it works for me

I've tried the Bumble & Bumble spray (from my other thread) as well as a few other sprays/creams. And I agree, creams work better for me. I also just bought a leave-in by Joico and it seems to work well.

I'm using the Remington on damp to semi-dry hair. I don't need pin-straight hair, just "mostly straight." LOL. Even a little wave is fine by me.

I like a little wave myself sometimes... especially since my hair is angled with a long layer or two.... it usually looks better with the ends not so pin straight

Heat from metal mixed with water and or steam on hair equals fried. You are just boiling your hair if you use stuff like that.
