Default Wet 2 Straight

Have any of you ever used the straighteners that say you can use it on wet hair? How did your hair turn out and does it straighten as well as when you blow dry and flat iron?

I have the T3 Wet-to-Dry Flat Iron. I absolutely love it. I hate blow drying so I can skip that step. All you need is a little product (straightening serum/heat protectant). Before, I had difficulty straightening my hair, but now its much easier. My hair came out great! See the attached pics:

I had a Remington Wet/Dry straightener. It destroyed my hair and didn't really straighten very well. I wouldn't recommend it. Hair is very fragile when it's wet- it just doesn't make sense that exposing it to an extremely hot iron could possibly be "safe."

I've had much better luck with a Maxiglide. I hate drying my hair, so I simply wash at night and let it air dry while I sleep, then straighten it when I get up. Plus it saves your hair the blow dryer damage. Hope this helps!

Which size flat-iron plate are you using (i.e., 1 inch, 1 3/4 inches) for your hair? And what temperature do you use to straighten your hair...which looks absolutely fabulous, by the way? :0)

Thanks for the compliment. I bought mine back in 2005. They have revamped it a little but this is the updated version: http://www.sephora.com/browse/produc...ategoryId=5780. I think that I set the temperature to about 350 (I think; I dont remember because I havent straightened in months, LOL).

MissKinkyCoily,

Thanks for the info...I went natural relatively recently (i.e., 6-months ago) and appreciate all of the knowledge.

I have the remington one and it does not straighten. The only good thing about it is it takes care of the frizz.
