  1. The Wet-Dry flat irons are not a good option if you have thick course hair because when your hair actually dies it will be frizzy. I like the paul mitchell straightener--Pro express iron. Emma, you are right about spending the money. The more money you spend the more likely you will save yourself some damaged hair.
