I see teflon tape mentioned vaguely in a few posts but I can't seem 2 find any direct answers. I see it mostly used during BKT's but can it be used other times than that? Just for regular straightening? What are the benefits of teflon tape vs. ceramic or other plates by themselves? Is it really sticky like duct tape/does it mess up the actual flat iron plates when it is pulled off? Is it for heat protection or smoother results? Does it do any damage to hair? do you replace the tape every time you flat iron or leave it up there? Do many ppl even use it? A lot of questions but I can't find a good sum of info on it, even on google. Ppl say they use it but don't say why. Any info would be great. Thanks!!
