So, I was sick of my cheap-o conair shiny styles straightener I bought when I was like 11... I decided I needed a good one... I did my research and found the best ones have ionic tourmaline and ceramic plates... then I further did research on the best brands and Solia and Chi were some of the highest rated. I looked at both and determined that a Chi was just a bit more than I wanted to spend. I dug for the best deal and came up with a limited edition pink solia on folica.com... So I ordered it. The reviews seemed pretty good. I am excited to get it and see how well It works!
