Anytime I hear about a new hair product, tool, accessory, etc., I want to check it out. It might work for me, it might not, but there's no harm in looking. Everything doesn't work for everybody (I'll discuss my experience with the Denman brush another time), but nothing's wrong with a little research.
Now I don't use a lot of heat on my hair, but I don't think there's anything wrong with the occasional flat iron if you wear your hair natural. You do have to be careful, but if you're willing to put the time and energy into making sure your hair is well-conditioned and protected, flat ironing isn't some evil villain.
So I heard about this new iron, the feather flat iron, also known as the original Milstan custom irons. You can check out the YouTube demo and see for yourself how it's different and how it works. I thought it was interesting; I have bad memories of a stylist getting too close to my ears with a hot iron on more than one occasion, so I'll admit I'm wary because these irons look hot.
Still, if you love wearing your hair straight, all the time or only on occasion, I'd be interested to hear if anyone has actually had their hair styled with one of these feather flat irons. If that's you, feel free to tell us all about it in the comments, or head over to the Black Hair forum and discuss.
