Two Great Deals from Folica on Sedu

Lately, I’ve been talking a lot about straightening my hair this fall, and caught a great deal today. Since my hair is much longer than when I first purchased my Croc Infrared (about a year ago), I was wondering if it would be better for me to get a 1.5 inch flat iron to supplement my 1 inch. I jumped on a Groupon deal I got today – $65 for the 1.5 inch Sedu from Folica. Normally, this flat iron will run you about $100-130 – I actually used to have a Sedu before I broke it and switched to Chi (which I didn’t really like), so I trust the brand and its quality.

But that’s not all! When I went to the Folica site to reiterate the quality of Sedus (ie, read the specs and reviews), I saw that they have ANOTHER deal to get a 1 inch Sedu for $75Β and Folica currently has a coupon code for $25 off $75 with FINALLYFALL, so you can get it for $50! I almost opted for this one instead, but thought it would be a little silly for me to get another 1 inch iron, especially since I’m barely halfway to my ultimate length goal. Also, I used to have the 1.5 inch, and my hair was shorter than it is now.

Fall and winter are the best times to straighten your hair because the dews usually drop, so if you’re curious…BUT remember to ALWAYS use a heat protectant, opt for one pass if possible, and use the lowest heat setting you can. At the MAX – 410 (under 400 is better if you have fine hair, but for coarse hair like mine, 375 does nada!)….no 450 here!!

Catch you on the flip side…xoxo

  1. Question: When your hair reverts, does it start from the ends or the roots? I’m sitting here on Day 3 of straight hair with smooth roots and frizzed out ends… at least I’ll have a chance to try a bantu knot out or a twist n curl but I will be back to curly in a few days. Not feeling this mess lol..

    I just flat-ironed my hair for the first time since April 2010 πŸ™‚ I love the straightening comb thing! Now I’m mad that I bought mine off Amazon instead of checking Sally’s first… AND I paid shipping fees grrr LOL. I blew out my hair first. Next time I’ll attempt a roller set (or maybe a Curlformers set….?) before flatironing.

    I used some really old Motions heat protectant spray I had lying around from my relaxed days as well as the GVP Silk Remedy (fakemeout Chi silk). I also used a Jilbrere nano Silver 1.25″ ceramic diamond crusted, goldplated, supersonic supercalifragilistic flat iron, which was on sale at Sallys. My hair looked tiiiight right after and “swanged” all the next day too but today… I feel like one of the monsters from Where the Wild Things Are. πŸ™‚

  2. Has anybody here tried John Frieda’s 3-Day Straight? I flat-ironed my nieces texturized hair and it was pretty good. I was wondering how it worked on natural hair. I plan to flat iron sometime this fall, but am in no rush. Here’s a link.

  3. Thanks Elle!! I needed a new flat iron but I was not willing to pay a large amount but thanks to you I got one! I can’t wait to use!

  4. My 16 y.o. daughter and I are just in the prep stages to ‘press’ our curls! We too have been waiting the weather out. I’ve been researching for the best tools to use, including heat protectors. Can you shed some light on those please? And also, can you or any readers give their say about the Maxius Maxiglide Xpress Straightener? Thanks for all you do! πŸ™‚

    1. I haven’t found a heat protectant I love b/c I rarely straighten – but use an oil with a high smoke point (so it doesn’t burn) or something silicone based. Never used a Maxiglide though.

    2. Actually Brend, I just received my Maxiglide Xpress in the mail last week. I blew my hair out last night using a combination of Redken Smooth Down Serum and Chi Iron Guard Spay.

      Afterwards, I placed the Maxiglide on level 6 and proceeded to flatiron my hair using grapeseed oil and a TINY bit of Chi spray. Hair was FAB!!!….The ends were a bit poofy so I decided to go back over them in bigger sections.

      Finally I wrapped my hair up with saran wrap and called it a night. I woke up to 50% reverted hair. LOL. My hair is medium to thick density, with very thick strands (some medium and fine throughout, but not many). The flatiron straightened my hair very well, however, the hair did not STAY straightened, and I think this was due to the steam.

      Since I was planning on trimming the next day, that was wasted and I will have to try again. Maybe in a month or so. I plan on using a higher heat setting…maybe a 7/8 (max is 10). I think I also overdid it with the heat protectants. They worked a little TOO well. lol

    3. I have the Maxiglide. i had the first one that came out over 5 yrs ago and I loveed it and when my sister discovered it she borrowed it all the time and when it broke I was upset but it lasted for 5 yrs and I go my monies worth out of it and I ordered another one on I believe QVC or HSN and I was happy because it is pricey but QVC or HSN had flex pay and I jumped on it. i have the XP and now I am looking to get the MP because my daughter has cut her hair and need an small one. But the Maxiglide site do not sell the 2 different sizes anymore. So look at these 2 shopping site that I gave.
