Dear Jane and Jedi:
I am a natural lady and I was wondering what your experience is with flat irons? Do you straighten your natural hair? If so, I have thick, coarse, hair and was wondering what flat irons work best! I am almost at the point of giving up. I went on Youtube and saw the Milstan Feather Flat Iron! It looks great and probably something that can handle my coarse, thick hair. Help! Any opinions will be really appreciated.
Thanks is advance,

That cute curling iron can make your hair cascade in flirtatious ringlets but it can also cause heat damage.

It frustrating to be taking care of your hair all the time and then find out you’re still not able to retain that length. You find that your natural hair is “misbehaving” in opposition to all that nurturing care you’ve been giving it! How unthankful of this mop top! Anyhow, you get the idea.
