For 20 more bucks you can get a Chi or a BabyBliss which i think are better quality and do a better job of straightening hair. My hair is wavy and thick, this wasnt' the best product for me. The straightener was not the best but wasn't horrible either.
This flat iron works great on natural African American hair. After using this my hair does not frizz as much as it used to in humidity and stays straighter longer. Thumbs up!

A guest had accidentally left one of these flat iron at my house a few years ago. While mailing it back to her, I noticed it was of high quality and very lightweight. I offered to buy it from her, but she said she couldn't live without it, so I bought one for myself on line and have been extremely happy with it. It has only an on-off switch -- no temperature adjustment -- which is exactly what I wanted, and the temperature stays consistent. Since we travel a lot, I wanted another one just like it to leave in our travel trailer. I noticed they used to be sold at a local store, but when I went to purchase my second one, I discovered they no longer handled them. Very happy to find the exact model on o.co for even less money than I paid for the first one. BTW, I have short, straight, fine hair. This works great at giving me the body and lift I need without unwanted curls.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Had just a little trouble distinguishing this particular model from a similar model. I was able to identify the right model by the on-off switch.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality (especially for the price), lightweight, long cord that doesn't get tangled.
I read a lot of reviews and chose this flat iron b/c it was highly recommended but it did not live up to my expectation. I am not sure if it's b/c the heat is only 1 setting and I have fine hair (but have a ton of it) but when I would flat iron a section of hair the part underneath that I had just ironed would start to wave. I would have to go over the same spot a few times and it still wouldn't straighten to my liking. I plan on returning and trying out a different brand
PURCHASE: So this was my first purchase through overstock.com and I have to say I am very pleased and plan on ordering with them again. My order was processed and shipped very effectively and arrived sooner than I'd expected. PRODUCT: This FHI flatiron was a great buy and works wonders on flat ironing my naturally curly unprocessed hair. It straightens with one pass WITHOUT causing any heat damage to my hair. The only down side is there is no way to control the temperature on this product however, this has not been a problem for me even with fine hair. I would and have recommend this to others.
This is a great flat iron for thin or fine hair. The small iron is perfect. It doesn't have a heat setting gauge, but luckily it doesn't get terribly hot. I wouldn't suggest this to someone with really thick hair. This is a light weight, powerful but low heat flat iron that works great on smoothing thinner hair! Love it!

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Didn't tell me that the flat iron didn't have a heat gauge, but it doesn't hey terribly hot luckily because I have finer hair that is cut short.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great. Works great and is brand new.
It is a decent flat iron, but the Chi is better. It just doesn't get as hot as the Chi and it is not as smooth as the Chi.
