My new BFF
Words cannot express how much I love this flat iron. After using flat irons that burned my hair, even with heat protection spray, I thought I would opt for more expensive ones. I looked around and BaByliss was recommened as well as Chi, but I thought I would try this brand because someone said it was a little easier on the hair. Also, someone else said to get nano titanium irons because theyre the new ceramic, and tourmaline is good for the hair, so I narrowed it down that way. I decided to go steam because it sounded interesting, though it also sounded counterproductive to me haha. I have African American 4c/4b mixed hair, so I thought it might make my hair frizzy, but on the contrary, my hair has never looked better! I love this flat iron because it moisturizes and it locks it in from the heat. I also like how the plates air long, so I can grab a lot of hair, and even in one pass they are straight. I consciously limit myself to one pass because I dont want to damage my hair, but even if I didnt, I wouldnt need the 2nd pass. The cord is really long, the water compartment loads easily, and all the buttons are well places so Im not turning anything on and off or moving things around. This flat iron can get very hot, but I only go up to 35 because thats all it takes for my thick unruly African American hair. Also, I use it without the steam for quick touch ups, which are really few and far between. So far, Ive only flat ironed my hair twice a week, because theyre not lying when they say with the steam irons, the process lasts 30% longer. I’m so happy with this flat iron, I dont see how the chi can do any better, but if I find it does, Id still recommend the steam irons, and specifically, this one!
I really liked it and then the steam stopped working. Haven’t had it long enough for the steam to be an issue. If they fixed that it would be one of the best hair appliances out there.
I wanted to get a steam straightener for a while, and this product does it well, and doesn’t seem to hurt the hair too much compare to the other non-steam straighteners.
This steam feature lets me believe its doing something healthy to my hair. All I know is I get quality results like I do when I visit my stylist once a month. She uses the same brand but not the steam feature. Great product. Even though I am tempted to try the HSI products. But then I think, this is what 90% of black salon owners use in TN. So I think I should just stick with this one.
I usually don’t like to fiddle with hair appliances because curling irons never give me the results I want, blow dryers tend to wreak havoc on my hair no matter how gentle I am, and flat irons never give me that “silky straight” look I see on other people. It usually looks like I just blew it out out.This straightens silky straight in one pass. It’s so good, and I don’t have to put the setting on a million to get a decent result. I actually am on the low end of temperatures. The results also last for a long time, too. It is easier to avoid reversion when I don’t want to wear my hair curly that day.The packaging is great, too. You can keep it in the recloseable box if you don’t use it that often. They include a heat pad to put the iron on while you are waiting for it to cool off or when you are parting your hair, which is cool because trying to find a place to put a hot appliance in the bathroom while your hands are full is crazy, lol.
THIS FLAT IRON IS THE BEST FLAT IRON FOR MY THREE YEAR NATURAL HAIR! ONE PASS AND I AM GOOD TO GO! THE STEAM PROTECTS MY HAIR FROM HEAT DAMAGE AS WELL. I LOVE THIS FLAT IRON SO MUCH I TOLD MY STYLIST I DIDN’T WANT HER USING HERS ON MY HAIR ANYMORE. I BROUGHT MINE TO HER AND NOW SHE’S MAD THAT I DIDN’T TELL HER SOONER ABOUT THIS PRODUCT. **SO WORTH MY MONEY AND TIME** I LOVE THIS PRODUCT SO MUCH I HAD TO WRITE THIS REVIEW IN ***ALL CAPS***
For the price I would have liked for it to work correctly!
I could never get the steamer to work!!!! It straightens well but I could have bought something else ya know.
