Helen of Troy and the Best Hair Day Ever

I hate my hair.  I have always hated my hair.  It is just curly enough to be frizzy but not curly enough to be cute.  All through college I struggled to find "the cut".  You know, the one cut that would make me look salon beautiful every day.  I still haven't found that cut.
I have tried nearly every potion, tool, concoction under the sun to try to tame my frizz.  A few years ago I was introduced to a hair straightener.  The lady at the salon made my hair smooth and straight, just what I have always wanted.  When I got home, it was a different story.  For some reason my $9.99 straightener did not create the same effect.  Being the cheapskate that I am I was sure that a more expensive straightener was not the solution.  That is until I tried my friend Jill's straightener.  Helen of Troy, the face that launched a thousand ships, gave me hair that would launch a few ships (at least one for sure).  I had the best hair day ever (seriously, I'm not kidding, even Chris noticed).  So, this week my dear friend Jill went on a Helen of Troy hair straightener mission for me and yesterday it came in the mail.  Here are the results.  
What do you think?
