The Croc was purchased for my daughter. She is extremely pleased with it and the job it does straightening her hair. While other straighteners initially straighten her hair, it doesn't stay straight through the day, and with the croc, it does.
I love this flat iron! It is exactly what Overstock.com said it was. Very high end quality. I would recomend to friends and family. I have fine hair with alot of fly aways, this flat iron does the job and I get compliments on my hair everyday how nice it looks even from guys!! Perfect!!
My daughter texted me from college that she wanted a Chi flat iron for her b'day. I had my hair cut a day later and mentioned the request from my daughter to my stylist. Oh no, she said, if you're going to get a good iron, get a Croc, but expect to pay about $200. My daughter found the listing on Overstock.com and I sent for it. A few days later, i ordered the same iron, except in wet/dry and it tames my ferocious curls and waves, leaves my hair shiny and is a great value at about $85 including shipping from Overstock.com
Gets my hair extremely straight - which I love - but it doesn't really save me much more time over my previous flat iron. Maybe 5-10 minutes or so. That being said, I like this product alot. Easy to use, lightweight, and heats up fast. Overall, I would recommend it.
I had used my friends croc turboion straightener and couldn't believe it's performance, heats up super quick, get results first pass through hair & hair looks shiny & healthy. I shopped around to find the best price & found it here. My friend paid $200 at a salon & is a very product/style savvy girl, she knows her stuff. So instead of trying others to compare to I trust that she does her research, I just tried to find best deal. This product is incredible & gives me Jennifer Aniston hair and I have semi-coarse, overprocessed, wavy hair. I have tried cheap-o straighteners with so-so results, but this is in a class of it's own. I'm just thrilled with it.
I selected this product based on all the good reviews I saw here and they were absolutely correct! Does heat incredbily quickly and cools off quickly too. Cord even has a piece on it to keep it wrapped up neatly when not in use. Its also incredibly easy to use and lightweight. I would definitely purchase this product again!
The croc iron is light waight yet heavy duty. I love that it has a temperature control. It's made from heavy duty material and I have no doubt that it will last a long time. It's worth the little extra cost cause it's a tool I use every day.
The croc is a great straightner. It is very similar to my chi. I was expecting it to be better than my chi after reading many reviews but it performs at the same level-which is a high level. I am satisfied with my purchase and with the customer service of overstock.
I have really long and thick hair and I have to straighten it everyday or else it is frizzy and a little wavy in some areas. I was tired of constantly having to buy flat irons that really didn't do the job. I heard a lot of good things about the Croc and decided to order it. I'm sooooooo glad that I did! It was definitely a great investment! I could tell the difference in my hair right away! I've never seen my hair look and feel so silky smooth! It's the best!!!!!
So glad I found my Croc on Overstock! It's better than a Chi I once owned. Hair stylist used this, suggested I get one, but not at their price! Makes your hair feel wonderful, not brittle or dry. Chi users will LOVE this as a replacement. Heating element went out on my Chi and was used probably 18 months. You won't be disapointed with the CROC!
I'm black and was somewhat apprehensive about this product. Well, I've been using it for a few weeks now and everything is great. The Croc Ionic Flat Iron gets my hair straight and leaves a nice curl too! This iron really works. The Croc is sturdy, the plates are super hot and very smooth. It heats up in seconds which really counts in the mornings when I'm getting ready for work. I even used it on my mom's hair after she took her dreadlocks out!! Yeah, I would recommend this iron.
I have never used a flat iron on my hair before, as it's naturally straight to begin with. However, my new hair stylist used one on me and I was amazed by how much shinier and completely frizz-free my hair looked without ANY product. So, I decided that it's time to buy a flat iron for home! I had really no idea what brand would be the best, so I decided to do research on-line. I spent hours looking at different sites and different brands, and finally decided on this one from Overstock. I have used it quite a few times now and I am extremely happy with it! I use it on a low setting but it heats up very fast, and I use it only on completely dry hair and on the top layer only (as my hair stylist instructed) and the result is very similar to when I walked out of the salon door! It's really easy to use - and it was a bargain!!!
This flat iron is great! I have fine straight hair, but lots of it. Unlike the other reviewers I dont use it to straighten curls out. I use it to make my hair shiny and perfectly styled. I also use it to get rid of that ugly "bump" of hair that tying it in a ponytail leaves. I ordered this product after my hairdresser used it on me and it is the cheapest on this site! It heats up very fast (I use a lower heat setting but even so it heats up within a minute). Beware however of how hot it gets, especially where the iron plates are it gets quite hot thru the outer plastic covering. It is easy to use. Looks nice. It is so much better than those chain store types which take forever to heat up and dont leave my hair looking quite as nice. This product is worth the money, as I have spent many $ on buying those cheaper ones with no where near the results.
All I can say is awesome!! I have never been able to get the back of my hair straight but with this iron I can without much time. After I had my baby the back only became REALLY kinky curly and this really works. My hair is straight after 1-2 runs through. Also, not noted in the description is that its supposed to be a wet straight iron although I have never tried it this way. The only down side to this product is that it doesn't balance well on the counter. I think I spend more time trying to get it to stay on the counter upright than actually doing my hair.
