I was at TJMaxx & came across this curling iron/hair straightener combo for $15, & I thought this would be great for travel. Here is the flat iron part:
This is the flat iron locked & the curling iron part.
I opened it & the first thing I noticed is how cheap it was made & it was all plastic. When I tried the flat iron part it was so loose, my hair didn't touch the iron. I tried to hold it down harder & burned myself.

I put it back & & returned it. I didn't even try the curling iron part. I'm back to my flat iron & curling iron.

Have you seen a product like this or tried one? I would love to try a good one, & get rid of so many tools.

What's your fave hair tool?

I have three sizes of cheapy conair curling irons and they are still truckin! i bought them years ago and they still get super hot. I love them and have never invested in any hair tool that is over $30..which was my Helen of Troy flat iron...that got replaced by a conair flat irn i found at costco!

I actually had this one from Revlon, but it was the yellow ceramic. It was ok. The lock never worker, so I had to curl holding it down on my own. That was really hard. I just learned that I should never buy the 2 in 1's just bc they are usually made cheap.

I have this and I agree the "Flat Iron" sucks, I like the curling part though. I get nice big loose curls, but my hair easily curls...

BTW I love my Helen of Troy Flat Iron.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
