A little about my hair type.....it is fine/color-treated/wavey & frizzy.
I have had both of the Chi flat irons, the original (without the temperature control ) and now I have the Chi Turbo (with temperature control) .
I felt the original was drying out my hair really bad and giving it that 'burnt' smell, so, I bought this one. It doesn't give my hair the 'burnt' smell, but, I still feel like it is drying my hair out and if I use it more than twice a week - my hair becomes brittle & straw-like, even with a heat protectant being used!!
This one also snags my hair and tends to pull and snap it. The original didn't do that.
It does a really good job at straighting my hair & I will say it only takes me about five minutes to do so and it stays that way no matter how humid it gets outside.
This is not a bad product, but for my hair type, it just isn't right one. There are soooo many flat irons on the market and I do feel some will better than others, depending on your hair type. It just takes finding that one - lol!!
I'm now going to try the Sedu and will post my review on that after I have tried it for a while.
