I won't be getting it anytime soon while it's warm out. But remember I was telling you all in my plan of action for the WL Hair Challenge that I was interested in possibly wearing my hair straight in the cool/cold months some? I think that it would help my hair in those months and it could stay better moisturized since the sebum could travel down my hair shafts more easily. I've heard great things about this flat iron from many naturals and am considering giving this one a try.

I'm slowly getting over my "fear" of heat. I'm starting to see if you use it responsibly and don't abuse it/use it (meaning using it minimally and not at ridiculously high temperatures ie pressing, higher heat than necessary for your hair type, etc.), your chances of experiencing heat damage and to extreme degrees decreases tremendously. Notice I didn't say eliminate b/c there's always a chance. I wouldn't be straightening my hair 24/7 though.
No Heat Nazis, I don't want to hear from you all. Lol. Because, I know what risks are involved and the consequences I may suffer; I don't need to be reminded. To the kurlies who use heat responsibly/occassionally, what do you think? Have any of you tried the MaxiGlide flat iron? Is there another brand that you would recommend better?
Please weigh in!
Addition: I'm still on fence about purchasing one. If I were to buy this one or any other flat iron, I would only use it 2 times a year which, in some ways, makes me think I should just stick to rollersetting and silk wrapping (via airdrying (which takes forever the longer my hair gets) or indirect heat: hooded dryer ) my hair to straighten it. Lol. I don't know yet, ladies. We'll see what verdict I've come up with come the fall. Until then, let's enjoy summer!
