I am African-American and was still in search of the perfect flat iron when I read the reviews for this one. I must say that I am impressed with the way my hair looks after I straightened it. You only need to go over your hair one time............maybe twice for us women who do it out of habit. I did not have the heat all the way up either! It glides through my hair very smoothly. I had the original CHI and actually gave it away to a friend because I was not impressed at all. Ladies, if your looking for a semi-expensive flat iron that gives you a salon look when your done, this is the one for you. I thoroughly recommend that you use a heat protectant when using this or any flat iron. The only thing I don't like about it, is that it's not pink!
I've been using it for a few months now, but problem so far. It's definitely better than those you can get at drugstores. I had a $30 Revlon a while back and it burns my hair every time I use it. This one can be used at high temperature setting and it won't burn my hair at all. Although it may not be as good as my hair dresser's iron, I will take it for the price I pay.
My hairstylist recomended this brand to me. They are upward of **** at the salons in Atlanta so I ordered the exact style they sell from Overstock. This one arrived within a week. Works wonders on my wavy hair. Smooths and shines my hair. Love it! Hopefully it will last and not die as some previous purchasers have experienced. For now I am very happy with my purchase. The warranty says 2 years - so we will see.
Love this Flat Iron, makes for great personal use, or gift. I have had many different flat irons, this one is by far the best. Beware, b/c it is a professional product it will burn out more quickly then the over the counter cheaper ones available.
I AM SELF PROFFESSED HAIR STUPID.. I ALWAYS ASK FOR A STUPID HAIR CUT THAT REQUIRES NOTHING MORE TO STYLE THAN A HAIR BRUSH. I FOUND A HAIR CUT THAT I FELL IN LOVE WITH BUT AFTER I GOT THE CUT IT TURNS OUT I NEEDED TO FLATTEN MY HAIR. NOW I HAVE TRIED THIS MANY TIMES WITH NO SUCCESS, I WENT ON LINE TO SEE IF I COULD FIND A HAIR TOOL THAT I COULD MANAGER I FOUND THIS WITH THE HAI FLAT IRON. IT HELPS THAT I CAN SET THE TEMP AND IT IS VERY LIGHT. LOVE IT
I finally broke down and purchased a more expensive flat iron and I'm so happy I did!! I love how my hair looks after I use this- it's shiny, healthy looking and I've gotten so many compliments on my hair after using my flat iron. I love the adjustable settings and how my hair gets straight with only a few passes of the iron. Great price, great product- LOVE IT!!!!
Love this flat iron!! My daughter is bi-racial and has real curly hair. I had bought a Gold N Hot flat iron from the beauty supply store to straighten her hair because she is at that age where she loves her hair straight. She hated for me to flat iron her hair because it wasn't as straight as she wanted it. I had been taking her to the salon to get it done and now I can save money. This flat iron straightens just as well as if I had taken her to get it done professionally. I had to buy one for myself. I can wake up, not wash my hair , (cowlicks and all), flat iron my hair and it looks like spent a long time on it
My hairdresser recommended this product to me for my daughter because unlike some other flat irons it has a temperature control for different types of hair. I ordered the HAI Flat Hair Iron for a Christmas gift just a few days before Christmas, paid just a little extra for quicker shipping and kept my fingers crossed! It arrived exactly as promised (two days before Christmas). Since my daughter had been begging for a flat iron she was so happy! After the first use she stated, "I love my new flat iron!" She uses it regularly and I couldn't be more please with this product from OVERSTOCK!
I bought this flat iron for my daughter and she just loves it! It heats up quickly, and does not seem to dry out hair as much as others have. She was so pleased that it also acts as a curling iron. This was a great value as usual! Thanks Overstock!
