If you're still not convinced, then ask yourself a question. Ask yourself how serious you are about your lifting. Decide for yourself, right here and right now, whether you're the kind of lifter GRAY HAIR AND BLACK IRON was written for. If you're not, that's fine. No hard feelings. I said at the beginning that GRAY HAIR AND BLACK IRON was written for a very small, very elite group of men and women. It's not mass-market stuff, and it's not for everyone. It's for deeply committed, deeply serious Iron Warriors - warriors who've been battling the iron for a very long time - and who intend to keep on fighting the fight for many years to come. So if that's NOT who you are, don't order the book.

If your hair is plagued by tangles and knots on a regular basis (even in between straightening!), try switching your hairbrush out for a wide-toothed comb! The added space in between the teeth gently separately knots and tangles without the painful “Ouch!” with each stroke. If that still isn’t enough to tame your stubborn tresses, try a wet brush! These brushes are specially designed to work through knotted, wet hair without any tugging or pulling.

A few swipes from a professional hair straightener can finish off a high ponytail, restore life to split ends, and give your natural curls a relaxed look for a night or two. No matter what your natural hair type may be, there is a hair straightener as unique as the gorgeous locks on your head! Here are just a few of our favorite hairstyles that can be achieved using a professional hair straightener like the ones we’ve reviewed here:


As one of the hottest hair straighteners we have reviewed (temperature-wise…although it is pretty to look at, we have to admit…), the Solano Sleek Heat 450 Professional Flat Iron can reach temperatures of up to 450° F in as little as 60 seconds! This Solano hair straightener also features thin 1 inch plates, making it an ideal choice for anyone with short or medium length hair and the quick heat time ensures that even the most stubborn of curls can be tackled with a little extra heat. If you are looking or something a little larger though, it is also available with 1.54-inch plates too.
Eight micro-sensors with HeatBalance technology are used to evenly distribute heat, regulating the temperature so that you spend less time applying heat. As a result, it takes less time to straighten hair, preventing it from damage when styling. Additionally, the 1-inch plate width is wide enough for any hair length, yet narrow enough to style your bangs.
This iron is one the coolest tool I’ve ever used. It is a beautiful looking straightener with very high technology. With 50% more power and wider plates (1.5″), the T3 SinglePass X is specifically designed to straighten hard-to-manage hair, such as long, thick or coarse hair. Most importantly, it is designed to do the job fast – it straightens in a single glide!
I've owned a Conair, Chi, and I-Tech straighter before, but this one is FABULOUS! A lot of research was done before I made the decision to purchase this one, and I feel like it paid off; my previous straightener was 4 years old, so it was about time. I received this new one today before I got home for my lunch break, so I had to go ahead and bust it in ;) There really is no tugging at all on your hair - so smooth, and I was shocked that it truly heats up in 15 seconds, as advertised! It also does something magical to my hair, like it adds more shine like no flat iron has done before. Mind you, my hair is very difficult to deal with. I am a Caucasian, but my hair has always been coarse, wavy, dry and thick! This iron worked beautifully on my hair. 10/10 would recommend! If it doesn't work the same after a few months, I'll be sure to update my review. As of today, I'm very happy! :)
We usually roll our eyes at oil-infused heat tools — but you can actually watch this oil being sucked right out of the refillable cartridge in the handle. When you press the iron closed over your strands, the oil vapor seeps through tiny holes to condition and straighten your hair. And don't worry fine-haired friends: It made our tester's hair silkier, but not like she'd dipped it in an oil vat.
