I have very curly thick hair, whenever i get it cut i get them to flat iron it ...lasts forever! I have a CHi straightener at home but can never get the same salon results !! Have been reading alot about the GHD and the Maxiglide...love that the maxiglide can be used without blowdrying out first and is much cheaper then the GHD but...will it give me that salon silky finish? Opionions?
