My cousin recommended I get a Paul Brown Hawaii straightener whenever my CHI stopped working. I love CHI, but have had 3 in the past 4 years, so I am a bit reluctant to buy another as they don't last. I purchased this straightener a couple of months ago, and I have no complaints whatsoever. It works very well and my hair is shiny and smooth after using it, so I am very happy with this purchase. Will be sticking with the Paul Brown Hawaii brand.
Frustrated I have bought 3 Paul brown flat iron in the past 5 years. The first one that I have had for about 5 years still works fine love it. However I bought 2 more irons at different times one year apart. The two irons are little different from the first one I bought. The two that are the same models. The Paul Brown iron 14097531 have both gone out. The 1st one that went out I did not have warranty. The 2nd one I bought extra warranty not even a year has gone by. So frustrated that these irons go out at the wrong time!!!! I was on vacation two days left in Cancun. What happens as I'm using the iron on my hair it just went out!!! And I must say I take care of my iron. I put my iron in my carry on so I know its has not been damaged. I used it 5 days in a roll before the iron went out. I love Paul Brown irons just from the first iron I bought 5 years ago like I said still works however when the irons go out that is it.
