    I am thinking about purchasing a Flat Iron so that I can do a roller set and flaten it a little. I think I read somewhere that a ceramic flat iron is better (jibraltire) sp??. I was wondering why and if I should really make this invesment or stick with my old gold flat iron? (I have not used my flat iron since being natural)


    Thank you

    I've heard this too. I was browsing the longhaircareforum.com and they had a thread on this, you may want to look on their to find out. Several members on this board say it's better.

    Both irons are good. But with a ceramic iron if you use it to much it could straighten your hair premanently because it gives off infared rays.

    I've heard that ceramic are better because they heat evenly and for that reason don't have "heat spots", spots very much hotter than others that normal flat irons can cause.

    Well i personally like the ceramic. It's true it does have even distribution and it has heat settings but then again some flat irons also have these. I guess its just up to the individual
    I through with it, love
    I'm through with it, through with it love
    I've finally given it up... (I'm not through with it love, I just like this song, lol1)

    i like the ceramic iron better, i don't have to run it over my hair as many times to get it straight...and i also didn't need to blow dry my hair first, i just let it air dry

    i also think that the cheapo conair brand ceramic iron works very well, i wouldn't shell out a lot of money for the jilbere brand

    I've read somewhere that ceramic flat irons won't catch your hair as you slide the iron over it, as regular flat irons sometimes do. When I was a permie, I stopped using flat irons for that same reason. They didn't cause heat damage, because I used the lowest setting, but they caught onto my hair and caused breakage, especially around my hairline. Supposedly, the ceramic material doesn't do this.

    I have the Jibere brand flat iron and it's one of the best I've ever had. No breakage, no uneven heat and I only have to pull through once or twice and I'm on to the next section. It really gives a much smoother appearance.

    wow, we can talk about flat irons on Nappturality?
    I'm not being sarcastic. I really thought that any reference to straightening wasn't allowed here.
