my dh spent £90 on wet 2 straight ones for me for xmas. was really disappointed with them - they tugged my hair a lot. took them back &got ghd ones instead. they r ace... they glide...

how curly is your hair? i have never tried the wet to straight ones as i cant really see how they work without burning your hair?

i would say that ghd ones are by far the best, but tey are very expensive. i have got very very curly frizzy hair, and i couldnt afford ghd ones, but i use fransen futura ones and they do a really good job, they were only about £30 and i bought my first pair from my hairdresser, and they lasted 3 years, i recently bought another pair as the sping went, and i bought them from HTH

thanks, ill check out the website.
i have quite straight hair anyways. but does have an annoying wave to it. also the white hairs are frizzy. and sadly there are more everyday.

I keep looking at those JML ones. I know they look a bit cheapy but they have Titanium plates and they're meant to be better than the ceramic. I think they're £40. I've heard the glass ones are good as well.
