DO NOT use a wet/dry flat iron. It is the worst possible thing you can do to your hair. The heat of the iron on wet hair flash boils the water inside the cuticle layer and destroys the integrity of the hair! Unfortunately, manufacturers are more interested in selling these appliances to unsuspecting consumers than they are with keeping the hair in good condition. We always recommend completely drying the hair with a leave in moisturizer and then applying heat protection before sliding a flat iron lightly over the hair. Hair is a fiber and must be regarded as such.
