Best flat iron in the world! The first time I purchased this iron was in 2006 in a mall and I paid $160 for it. I had no idea it would be such a great iron. It made my hair look so shiny and healthy! Never caused damage at all. I had the iron for 3 years. And of course with normal wear and use it became old. So I shopped around for an new iron. At that time I was looking for a deal and did not want to spend $200. So I purcahsed a CHI, it was pink and I only spent $80. I used it for a year and my hair became so dry and britttle that I was disgusted with my decision to stray away from what I knew was good iron. So I searched the internet for my old brand Corioliss. And I found it here on overstock for $$$ I was so happy and I absolutley love this flat iron!!! Thank God for Overstock.com!!!
