The size of this flat iron makes it very easy to comb you hair after you have dried it. I has mad a a difference in my life,as I have less of hassle handling my hair to behave as I want. I would recommend this iron, not only because it works so well for mew, but also because it is an important cause to fight for. If the product would not fulfill my reuqirements even if the cause was good, I would not buy it. However, in this case both requirements are top notch.

My favorite feature of this straightener is the quick heat up and cool down. It is light and easy to use. I do not have extremely course/curly hair, so I can't comment on how well it works for that, but I think it does a good job on moderately curly and fine hair (like mine). I've got a stubborn wave in the front of my hair, and I do need to work pretty hard to get that straightened.

I actually like this curling iron, but, the downside (which is major) and reason I would not recommend is that the heating elements (flat iron part) is shorter than outside and the way it is designed (plastic clips) it grabs and pulls hair. It actually catches and pulls out hair. This flat iron works very well, but, you have to take twice as much time and care with the straightening process and you'll constantly be catching and pulling and sometime ripping out hairs.
I've never had my own straightener, and have always used my roomates. I got this since it was a really good price. Doesn't work as well as the one my roomate has, but she paid a lot more for hers... and maybe because its ceramic it kind of smells funny when it heats up. but it works pretty well overall
I previously had a 3/4" straightener that had a strange closing design - it rarely closed properly on my hair on the first attempt. Additionally, my hair would catch on it (I never figured out where) and pull. Consequently, design was an important factor in my decision to buy a new straightener. I bought this one because of the style of the unit (and the breast cancer donation). It closes flawlessly and is easy to maneuver for flips, curls, and shorter pieces of hair. I have not had my hair catch in this one. With my old straightener, I had to set the temperature on maximum to get results with my fine hair. With this unit, I have the heat set on 15 (out of 30). This one also has a swivel cord; I love that I don't have a tangled cord mess! I've had this straightener for a few months now. I use it every day. I would buy this again, and again. The price is more than fair. I paid $** for this. There are a host of pricey designer straighteners on the market, but I can't imagine they'd be any better than this. I receive frequent compliments on my hair - something that is new to me.
I don't like to spend a lot of time with flat ironing, so I was skeptical with the 1" width. It works absolutely great! It heats up fast, fast, fast and stays hot. I couldn't have asked for a better product and especially at the price! I would tell anyone to get one if they can.
I actually bought this hair straightener somewhere else but then I saw that it is cheapter here. Anyway I've had mine for several months and although I don't have curly hair I really do think that for the price you get a very good reliable straightener. I take mine back and forth between school and home and it doesn't show any wear or tear yet. Oh and it really does heat up in about a minute. Love that feature. It gives my hair a very shiny look and it great with flyaways!!!
