My daughter suggested that I try this T3 for my hair. Instead of my fuzzy curly hair, my hair is now shiny and styled perfectly! Love it!

I ordered this to replace my CHI volumizer which broke on my last traveling trip. I was a little unsure about this styler because it was priced so low. I was afraid that it was either a really old model or not an original T3 and will not work as well. I am happy to say I was wrong on both accounts! It came in a nicely packaged box, completely new (with all the paperwork) and looks almost exactly like my old red CHI. I tried it out and it works great. Fast to heat up, the dial is easy enough to adjust the heating temperature. I am so so glad I got this! I had looked everywhere for a volumizer to replace my CHI, and even considered paying 3 times the cost of this one, until I found this on Overstock. Thank you Overstock!
This is an excellent product. Good quality. The only thing I didn't realize is the fact That it's not a flat iron but a styler. What I mean by that is there is a curve to allow the hair to be curled on the blades. Sometimes it's hard to hold the hair in as it's very slick on the surfaces. If u condition your hair you will see what I mean. It slips through. It is a very nice device and I would recommend to anyone. It heats up very fast

I bought this very expensive iron on Overstock for $$. I believe it was only $$ because it was defective. I didn't even open the box until after 30 days elapsed and then I found the iron didn't work. The heat up light was going on and off so I assume it was some sort of a short. I haven't bought anything from Overstock since because I am annoyed that I lost $$ on an item that was probably returned before and resold at a really low price. I thought I was getting a real deal and instead my money was wasted.
This iron heats up in a flash and smooths nicely. Little bit of a learning curve. The smooth side of the iron must be up and the lined side underneath no matter which direction it is that you are styling your hair. Volume as promised.. If you want super flat hair and no lift at all this iron is not for you. I love it!! The plate is curved to lift your hair from the root.

I have several T3 flat irons and wanted this smaller, rounded plate one. Unfortunately, the lowest heat setting is the same heat as the highest-no change from low to high. My hair was burnt/singed-off on the lowest setting-which would be the same as using 450 when I only use 300 maximum on my hair with any other T3. The instructions stated the low setting was for fine hair, so I'm going to assume with testing the difference from low to high carefully on a piece of cotton, that this T3 is defective.
I had read plenty of reviews about the T3 products but I had to see it to believe it. No burnt hair, no hair snagging, no frizz. I can't believe it's possible to straighten my hair so fast and for it to feel so smooth and look professionally done. Very impressed. I have shoulder length hair and this flat iron was able to double both as a straightening iron and a volume tool for the roots. I ordered the regular flat iron as well but I may not needed since this one does both. We shall see.
After reading other reviews, I thought this product would perform similarly to the volumizing Chi, which I can no longer find for purchase. Unfortunately, for me, it does not work nearly as well. I am having a hard time getting it to hold onto my hair as I use it. Of course, it costs only a fraction of what the Chi cost so I suppose I should not have expected it to be as good. Maybe it's performance will improve as I gain more experience with it.
I've always used a curling iron but everyone seems to straighten hair now so i decided to try it. My hair is hard to set, being a little stiff, and yet has a lot of wave each going in its own direction. I should have gotten a straightener long ago. Instead of trying to control the waves' directions, this iron straightens them out. Who knew? Heats up fast, gets very hot, and does a good job.
I find the styler difficult to use. It ends up making a crimp in my hair as opposed to a rounded curl. I have very fine hair. I haven't ever used a styler before, so I don't know if the problem is my technique or the styler. However, I don't use it very often as a result since I don't like how my hair looks after using it. It does heat up really quickly, and it has more than one setting for heat.

When i pruchased this product i did not realize that it is not a straightener, but in fact a "styler." It would be great for short hair but as mine is long it does not have the same effect. It does, however, make a wonderful curling iron and i have gotten dozens of compliments on my curly hair when i do use it.
