If our flat iron has taught us one thing, and it's that life is all about give and take. Sure, you can heat style your way to smooth, straight strands, but you better be prepared to cope with brittleness and breakage down the line. Sigh.
That said, we were all ears when we heard about a straightener that claimed to not only protect hair from damage, but to actually make it healthier. To say we were intrigued was putting it mildly. We recruited our associate fashion features editor Gina to deliver the verdict — could this flat iron forever change heat styling as we know it?
