Here's the PM iron in all it's glory lol. I keep the heat set to 380 degrees but it goes up to 400. I know it seems like a bit much, but my hair needs all that heat.
So you guys can get an idea of how thick and curly my hair is, here is a picture of it when I let it air dry with gel, mousse and hairspray
This is what it looks like when I just flip my head over and blowdry with a flat vent brush (scary, I know)
When I straighten my hair I have to brush the curl out, so needless to say its a poofy mess.
The only products I put in my hair are these two things. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum (only a pump and a half) and the Tresemme heat protectant
If anyone has hair like me; thick and hard to manage, but wants silky straight locks then you HAVE to get this. I've never been so impressed by a product like I was with this one. This iron retails for about $200 but I purchased mine on ebay brand new for $115. A total steal, but I would have gladly payed more for this.
