Hi I'm Amelia and I am here to talk to you about flat irons. There are thousands of flat irons on the market. You really just need to figure out first what it is you are looking for. If your hair is extremely coarse and curly you are probably going to want an iron that is a little bit hotter and probably better made. When you are first starting out with a flat iron you can spend a little bit less just to see how often you are going to use it and what technique and what make you are going to like. Like as you see this one here has got a bend in it so it is going to be a little bit more ergonomic for your hair, well for your wrist. As you are flat ironing the hair you can kind of see how this part of the iron is away from your scalp. So you can get a little bit closer and when you are picking out a flat iron a lot of people pick out the really big ones but actually the smaller the iron you use is better because you can get closer to your scalp so you can get this hair down here straighter and it is not so much that a lot of people thing that when you use the two inch iron oh I'm going to be able to get large swaths of hair but really you are not going to want a flat iron large swaths of hair. You are going to want to take fairly small sections and go down each strand slowly so that you can get it perfectly straight. Also with flat irons you can curl as well so when you have a smaller flat iron like this one, this one is about a half inch and it also has a bend in it, this is great for curling so you can just twist it around the flat iron and it is going to act just like a curling iron and bend that hair. So when looking at flat irons figure out what it is you want out of the iron, what you are going to be using it for, how often you are going to be using it and then go to a reputable salon supply or beauty supply store to get what you are looking for.
