I Own Hair Straightners

    Not In Use

    I own some, I just never use them. 1.) I love my curls and 2.) They're broke. Someone (finger pointing at sister) managed that. I got the blame, natually. Someone suggested putting them on eBay with the description 'Doesn't get too hot' ???? They don't get hot full stop!!

    Yep

    They're cordless ones and I love them. I don't really need to use them much though... but I did use them a couple of days ago and I burnt my ear.. :/ I've burnt myself so many times on them.. It hurts lol.

    Yep...

    I own so many straighteners...it's crazy. I prefer my hair straight, but I also find the straighteners very handy to curl my hair too (curling with a straightener...such an oxymoron). I always use my straightener before I go out.

    Forever!

    I used to have three hair straighteners! Now I only have two. ^^;; And I only use one of them. I keep the other one because it is wider and better for straightening all of my hair whereas the other one is better for my fringe (I normally only straighten my fringe). The thinner...

    Most Certain

    Have curly hair and with Florida humidity I have a heck of a time straightening it but I do try. Depending on the weather it sometimes isn't worth the effort so I always check the report before attempting. :)

    In My Closest Unused

    I own some but I don't straighten my hair any more.  Even when I did those hair straighteners never work for my hair which goes back kinky in hours or if I get it wet.

    Mine Rarely Gets Used

    I used to straighten my hair every day because I hated my curly hair. Lately I've pretty much quit using it though. I actually read a book named "Curly Girl" and since then, I've used my straightener maybe once or twice, but I pretty much stay away from it. Any of you...

    Obey Me, Hair!

    It stays straight for a while. The minute I step outside it's frizzy, and out of place again. Doesn't matter how much product I put in, none or an immense amout of it.   But it kinda looks good anyways. Undone and cool :)
