    I upgraded to a FHI Platform from a Sally GVP back in May. I really like this flat iron, but I would love one with digital temperature control. While this iron works well and is very smooth, I would love it more if I could set the temperature exactly and couldn't accidentally move the dial during use. Which flat irons/models are good and have digital temperature control?

    I've been looking at the FHI EPS Black Diamond flat iron. It's digital. JCP had a good promo on it during the holidays. However, I didn't bite at that time.

    FHI has good flat irons. I still have the pink technique one from 2008 still working like I just bought it. it doesn't have a manual temp control though. I also have the black platform one,& that one has the temp control.

    I used to have this flat iron and LOVED it. I dropped mine though and the plates broke so I bought a Babyliss Pro Titanium to replace it. I personally prefer ceramic versus titanium I find titanium to be more damaging. That new FHI EPS Black Diamond flat iron looks promising; I'm gonna more into it since I'm looking to buy a new flat iron soon.

    I had one of the more expensive ones, but I now use this cheaper one from Sally's and love it:

    I find that I have the problem you do when I use heat protectants on my hair. I'd rather use a lower setting and put something on afterwards.

    P.S. It's been years since I've been here. So I have a dumb question... what is the comb chase method?

    I'm so excited that you're back! An O.G. LHCF member. I used to read your old posts, and I love your tag line..."Hair's like money. It's not what you make. It's what you keep."
