I bought this iron because it's the one my hairdresser uses on me and I'm really glad I did. My old flat iron broke and I was freaking out because the good ones are so expensive, so when I found this on overstock.com at $40 off I was ecstatic. It does such a great job on my hair, and it leaves it perfectly straight and shiny. The small plate size makes it easier to get closer to your head without fear of burning yourself. I've used the Chi which is a lot more expensive, and this one is just as great if not better and for a lot less. I would definitely recommend it. And it got to my house two days after I purchased it.
I've never owned a flat iron before and I wish I had gotten one earlier. This iron is fantastic and makes my hair unbelievable. It heats up quick and passes through your hair very smoothly. It appears very well made and after many uses have never burned myself accidentally.
This iron is awesome. I have only used one other iron before and it was worthless. I've always wanted an iron that was professional salon quality but was afraid I would buy the wrong thing. This iron was the perfect buy. I have thick hair and when I wear it in a pony tail it leaves a huge dent in my hair, not to mention it's very kinky from being bundled up. I don't always have the time to rewash my hair if I want to wear it down. I run the iron through it and it's perfect. I can't say enough about it. To add to the great product, Overstock always delievers my order so fast and in perfect condition.
I read many reviews and I knew that I was risking it breaking down. Within a month I dropped it and yes, the light flickered. There was panic...was it going to break like the reviews warned? It did not but even if it does I did buy the two year warranty. Give yourself peace of mind and buy the two year warranty. I like what it does for my hair. My sister loves it and she uses it more than I do.
This product is great, You can really tell the difference between a 20 dollar flat iron and an 80 dollar flat iron. I have very thick hair and it takes me only 5 minutes to straighten my hair. It also leaves my hair soft and full of shine. I would definitely recommend this product to people with thick or wavy hair.
For the price you pay on Overstock.com, this straightener is a great value. I like that I can use it to straighten my hair or to add some curl. I have wavy/frizzy hair and it leaves my hair smooth and straight with a nice shine. Also, it rarely ever snags. While it may not be the absolute top of the line, it is very very close and I am very happy with this purchase.
My daughter has one she pais retail for at her hair dressers. She has wavy hair. I have fine curly hair and I was concerned that it would be too hot. I love the settings and my hair remains straight even when it is moist outside. I love it.
