Has anyone tried the new steam hair straightener from Conair? I am thinking of ordering it for my very thick dry hair, cos it looks as if it makes your hair silky and smooth very easily....

Perhaps you will have better results with your thick hair. (How I envy you!!!)Before purchasing it, ask about the store's return policy. Target Stores asked no questions after I told them that it did not work for me, and I promptly got a full refund. Just be sure to keep the receipt and open the package as carefully as possible.

> I also bought one for my hair, and it turned it into one big POOF! The steam just frizzed my hair out. I also have thick dry Hair, and I would just recomend not to waste your time and money. It hasn't worked for anyone that I talked to. If i were you, i would stick to a large barral curling iron.

Sorry to sound redundant, but I didn't like it either. It just made my hair limp and fuzzy. Plus it didn't make my hair that straight. But I agree that if you still want to try it be careful with the packaging so you can return it if you don't like it.

I can't believe that I am having success with something that most people aren't. My hair is shoulder length, colored, and curly. I use the straightener on my bangs and occasionally all over. I have had NO problems with it, even though my hair tends to get dry and straw-y because of the color. I do not use the straightener every day, though, and hardly ever use it right after I have dried my hair. Maybe that's why I haven't had any problems.

> Thanks for all your helpful comments. that's why this website is so useful.I will give it a miss and continue with the Aubrey conditioners and the ARTec smoothing conditioner, both of which are having a great smoothing effect on my dry, thick bushy hair.Plus I have found that if I tie it back into a pony tail for half a day after I have washed it, it makes it go smooth and flat. Sounds simple, but I had never thought of it before. (After washing it is like a 1980s poof!)

I find that letting it dry in a smooth, firm ponytail eliminates the need for me to use a dryer and hot comb after each shampoo. I haven't used either for months, and my hair is left with more body and volume after it dries this way.While my hair is still wet, I rub a little ORGANIC Root Stimulator Carrot Oil Creme (nice stuff!!) into the scalp for about a couple of inches from the front hairline, back. Then, I pat a little Aubrey's Organic GPB all over my hair and brush it back into a very smooth ponytail, held by a terry-covered elastic ponytail holder, and I comb the ponytail and clip the ends up.If I want to wear it loose later, I just have to lightly straighten out the little "pouf" in the back, which is formed where the pony tail was tied. My hair is healthier and a little thicker as a result of the vacation from the dryer and hot comb, and frequent scalp massage.The Carrot Oil Creme can be found at Sally's. Most health food stores carry Aubrey's.

I have fine, dry highlighted hair and what works for me is a flat iron. I have a Belson Gold'N Hot flat iron that I run through my hair after blow drying. It makes my hair very soft and smooth. You can purchase the flat iron at any beauty supply store for about $20.00.

> Has anyone tried the new steam hair straightener from> Conair? I am thinking of ordering it for my very thick> dry hair, cos it looks as if it makes your hair silky> and smooth very easily....I just bought it a week ago ($19.95 @ Drug Emporium) & I absolutely love it! In fact, I'm telling all my friends about it. I have thick, very curly & coarse hair. I used it on totally dry hair & was amazed how straight & silky it made it. I was afraid the steam would frizz the hair but surprisingly it didn't. It's wonderfully to have silky hair for a change. Try it - if it doesn't work for you you can always return it.
