The quality is unmatched. We have Chi's and other types of flat irons, but this one trumps them all. The ONLY thing I wish it had was a more specific temperature reading. It shows the temp for 176, and then the line up to 450 gets thicker as the temp increases, but it doesn't tell you what the temp is. So, for people who aren't every-day straighteners (like us), it's a guessing game to get the temp right every time we use it. It's a minor pain that should be fixed, but nothing that impacts the functionality of the iron itself, so I still have to give it 5 stars simply because it's just that wonderful of an iron. Great for biracial hair!!! Comes out way better than with a Chi, and keeps it healthy and pin straight for days.
This is a great flat iron!! It heats up super quick and really works, Take it from me, I have LONG, WIRERY, THICK, red hair and this Iron does not disapoint!!

I started flat-ironing my hair about 12 years ago. I have a short style, somewhat spikey. I started out with the run of the mill flat irons from the area stores then graduated to the Sedu of which I fell in love with and stayed with that brand for about 8 years. Until now! I love this FHI flat-iron! It is great for short hair, doesn't burn and just makes my hair so much better and more volume! I don't know why its so different from the Sedu brand but its just better! Best flat-iron I've owned yet! I'm a customer for life! After all, isn't one's hair their 'crowning glory' ?
but everyone's hair is unique. I have naturally coarse, wavy hair with a tendency towards frizz. Since I look better with straighter hair, I get regular keratin treatments. This FHI Platform is the same one my hairdresser uses, and this flatiron gets the straightening/smoothing job done quickly. There is just no comparison to a $20 iron from a drugstore. Even as my keratin treatment washes out, I can rely on this FHI to smooth quickly without leaving residual frizz. Fair warning: this iron gets HOT fast and stays that way. You have to experiment with the temperature settings and find the one that is right for your hair. It also helps to use a heat protectant spray on your hair before ironing. A salon or someplace like Ulta or Sephora would have it. Also, smaller sections of hair at a time will have better results. I'm very happy with this FHI Platform and even happier that I found one here on Overstock. Great deal!
