I love this flat iron. I use it on both of my girls super curly hair and it straightened it beautifully. My girls love how soft their hair feels and I love how easy their hair is to manage (No more ouchies, no more tears). Also, it doesn't leave that burnt or just straighten hair smell, in fact the oil that comes with this flat iron leaves their hair smell wonderful.
My daughter begged for one of these, and while I was dead-set against it, I caved in to social stress. Well, she has NOT burned her hair off her head, nor her ears, neck, or any other body part. She LOVES THIS APPLIANCE! As a matter of fact, her older sister begs her to do her hair for special occasions! :) My oldest daughter has been using one for a few years now, so she is the resident "expert"... She is impressed by this machine though, and gave her sister a thumbs-up! I give it a thumbs-up as well!
Previously owned much more expensive straighteners and this one is seriously better !! I have really thick quite curly, long hair and I can get my hair done in like 15 minutes with this. The heat can be set anywhere from 255 to 450 and I have not experienced damage to my hair. It doesn't pull and I've used it to straighten and create beach wave hair. I've had this for over a year and no signs of slowing down !! Seriously save yourself the $$$$ and order this beauty !!
Great price. I have no skill whatsoever with hair styling products, but I'm able to use this pretty easily. It leaves my hair straight all day and heats up quickly. I was looking for an inexpensive product because I didn't think I would be using this very often, but just on special occasions. However, this is so easy to use that I am straightening my hair for work at least 3x a week. I hope it last for a long time.
I love it! Was thinking of buying $100 hair iron because i dont trust cheap flat iron. But when I tried it, it's as good as expensive flat iron. Affordable and worth buying :)
I bought this based on reviews to replace the one my daughters used, which they said was way too weak and took forever. When we first turned it on, I think it fully heated up in about 15 seconds (like it said). It was VERY powerful. We didn't even put it to the full amount of 450 (like it says not to), and kept it around 350. Both girls, one with thick wavy, the other with fine curly, loved it. It was smooth, easy to slide through, and even I noticed that their hair came out better than usual. I will buy this again.
I was a little skeptical on purchasing this flat iron, but my sister has an older model that she swears by so I thought I would give it a shot. I am African-American with thick, coarse relaxed hair and yaki hair extensions...I said all of that to say that my hair is thick and it's hard to straighten or hold a curl without practically burning my hair. I was VERY impressed with the performance of this tool! It took less than a minute to achieve full heat at 420 degrees.....I probably could have done 400, but I wanted to make sure it would be effective.....I also used Tresemme heat protection spray to help with styling. The iron gripped my hair tightly without breaking it, and it glided through my hair without snagging. The edges are curved, so I was able to put some curls in that weren't too tight or too loose. I also have bangs, and the iron was small enough to get close to the root so I could put a little bump curl in front. The best part is that there was also no burning smell. The curls did drop throughout the day, but the result was a nice wave that still looked like I had paid attention to my hair that day.
I bought this flat iron for my 30 year old daughter who loves her hair to be straight. Her hair is not overly thick, nor is it very wavy, but it is long. Her hair looks fabulous when she straightens it. She uses this iron every morning and is very pleased with it. She has had, at least, a dozen of flat irons over the years and she absolutely loves this one. It heats hot enough and fast enough. As soon as my hair grows out a little more I will be buying another one for myself. I have naturally very wavy hair that is very thick and tends to frizz a bit and looks unruly and gets in the way when it's long, but this flat iron works perfectly on my hair. It makes my hair look beautiful and sleek. It takes out the frizz and makes it easy to style. This flat iron is exactly as it appears and performs exactly as advertised. I would recommend this flat iron.
I am giving this straightener a 5 due to the fact it is so cheap in comparison to a high end one and it works better. I was skeptical at first when I was recommended this straightener but I am so glad I took the chance and figured what do I have to lose for $30 when all my others were over a $100. This straightener works really good and doesn't pull or tangle hair and glides nicely and my hair doesn't feel dry like it has before with other ones it feels smooth and my hair stays straight for 2 days without any major touch ups.
I am natural with a kinky-curly hair type. This flat is the best in all of the flat irons I have ever bought. I did not have to worry about heat damage and it straightened my hair with one or two passes. I finally found one that did just what I wanted it to do.
I love this flat iron. I have curly, freezy hair and it worked miracle in my hair.. Here's a before and after so you can see the differences and one with waves in my hair...Love it :) I recommended to anybody who got my type of hair...it leaves your hair soft, silky and it won't pull your hair
