  1. Hi Ginna! If you are unsure of what size to buy and the difference is 0.25 inches, it is always better to purchase a larger flat iron. A 1.25-inch flat iron is best for those with medium to thick hair because it will cover more surface area and reduce the amount of time it takes to straighten your hair. You can surely use it to create curls, they will be just a bit bigger than using a 1-inch model.

  2. Thanks for your feedback, Lorrie! I’ve recently tried the Strengthfusion line, will definitely update the article soon.

  4. Hi, thanks for the comment!

    As you said, I mostly base my reviews on personal experience and using them on my clients. For the last 2-3 years I’ve been only using the Phyto Paris and Avlon Affirm relaxers and couldn’t recommend them more.

  5. Hi Cheryl!

    There’s no big difference and it’s a matter of preferrence. Washing over the sink takes less time for me and I like to rinse my hair with slightly colder water.
