    Default Anyone want to comment?

    I kinda...almost...accidentally got myself embroiled in a controversy about heated appliances and hair.

    Anyone want to comment on this topic? ETA: Link Removed, please do not start Board Wars. -Dianyla

    Maybe someone here is better at explaining then I am.

    Edited because I accidentally posted before I was done typing.

    Don't bother. They "know" what they know, not going to convert people who don't want to hear it.

    You've said your piece, and have suggested sources for this person to explore if they're interested. They're NOT interested in changing their point of view, so there's nothing else that can be done.

    One of the things I'm trying to learn is when to walk away. Some people are incapable of acknowledging that they might be wrong about something, or that other points of view may have some merit. Those people are not worth arguing with; you'll drive yourself batty.

    That's why I keep this comic bookmarked.

    ETA: You may not have convinced or informed Anonymous, but other people reading that site may consider the information you've presented.

    OMG.

    'Using a heat protecting spray and a good salon quality shampoo will protect your hair"...........


    WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. But alas, the myths are so ingrained to main stream hair society it's widely believed.

    I did love the part about living with three feet of hair though.

    All you'll get by arguing with them is a headache. We will live here in our world of hair care and they will live there in theirs and we will just look at each other over the divide.
    I do not post much anymore, however I would love to hear from you guys if you want to chat. Pop me a PM and I can send my email/blog url/facebook if you want.

    I think you both have a point. Yes, water can be brought to a boil, but it takes some time; it doesn't happen instantaneously. If a heat protective spray is used, #1 it's very slick so the flat-iron glides right down it easily without hanging up anywhere long enough to bring water to a boil, and #2 silicone is a very poor heat conductor. It keeps the heat from penetrating into the hair. Of course if you're keeping the hair clamped onto a very hot curling iron, the above two arguments don't apply.
