-It has an adjustable temperature control. It was cheaper than the cheapest CHI. The cheapest CHI I found had a fixed temperature. I have to be able to control the temperature. (I would've had to pay over a $100 for the CHI that has adjustable temp)
-According to my research, FHI seems like it would get my hair straighter. I could be wrong about this though.
-And of course it's ceramic (the CHI is too).
So now I am just patiently waiting on my FHI. I ordered it from http://www.frizzy2silky.com/ for $68.40. I used the discount code: frizzy2silky if there is anyone out there interested in getting an excellent deal . This is the absolute cheapest that I could find the flat iron for. Most sites had it for about $100. I should get it just in time for my relaxer which is in about 2 weeks. I can not wait to see the results! And of course I will posting them on Hair Gurl! :-)
