they have some cheaper ones on eBay, just wondering if they're ok to buy...... (I know I'm being cheap! hehehe). also, it seems that the 1 inch iron is the one most people have. i'm mainly going to use this to do big waves on my SUPER STRAIGHT, FINE, LIMP, FLAT, and BORING hair! is the 1 inch iron going to achieve this look? im afraid that it might look like 1 inch curls all over instead of loose waves.....which is the look i'm trying to go for. sorry so many questions. i desperately need to do something with my disastrous hair! thanks!!
