I went to have my hair done two days ago and my beautician used the FHI Flat Iron. You all know I love my Royale Flat Iron. LOVE IT!! But after she used the FHI Platform, I was looking to see if my Royale was somewhere in hiding. This FHI letf my hair silky straight and beautiful. The best factor was she used no extra products to flat iron with. This iron made all the magic happen on it's own. (Not some truly amazing product!) This is a great tool for less than the retail price of the Royale. I saw the FHI Platform on Amazon for $140.00.
