The product is amazing. Great cost $50 is a steal! My friend who is a licensed cosmetologist originally bought me this for christmas and I dropped it really hard and broke it (don't drop the product!) so I reordered the same exact one I loved it so much.

Make sure you use a protectant before you use this straightener! Gets nice and hot but you have the option to control the temp. I am used to buying the $200+ straighteners and I do believe I am converting to Cortex. Recommended by my stylist. She uses the same brand in her salon!

I love this iron, beat thing ever!!! The temperatures vary from 140 to 450F. The ceramic plate leaves your hair silky and smooth, but I found this exact same flat iron for 30dollars at TJMax♡♥♡♥

I ordered this flat iron on May 2nd and I had it on the morning of May 4th. I could not believe how quickly the seller shipped it, and the great price. I ordered the green one, and I love the color. In this picture it looks like a slightly dull green, but it is actually more of a bright, almost neon, green (which I love). The instructions for use in the box say that the flat iron heats up fully in about one minute, but I don't really see that. If I leave it plugged in for 15-20 minutes (which I normally do) it's piping hot by the time I get around to using it. I can plug it in and it's ready to go in about 5, though, which is nice on days when I'm running behind.It gets VERY hot,too. I am able to straighten, curl, or flip my hair with this and it stays pretty much all day, which is a nice change from my previous flat-iron experiences.

OVERALL: Great product, great price, totally recommend it.

A few years ago, I was in the mall and one of the kiosks introduced me to the Cortex flat iron. It was stylish and attractive, and made my super curly hair pin straight. BUT because it was 150 dollars, I didn't get it. Now recently, I've been looking for a new flat iron and thought of the Cortex brand. I decided to look on Amazon and see that it's only 30 dollars! That's a steal for such a FANTASTIC iron! I recieved the package quickly and used it that day! It heats up fast, straightens fast, and is oh-so cute (I bought the Lime Green one). Packaging was amazing, it felt like I had just bought a 150 dollar flat iron. I definitely recommend this product to ANYONE who wants a great flat iron at a good price.

I have purchased two of these straighteners in the last few weeks one for myself and one for a friend. They heat up quickly and evenly and when they reach and equilibrium set temp the light turns green so you know its ready. The only complaint I do have is when I purchased the green one, the plates shown are tan. When i recieved it, the plates were black. Not too big of a deal but I find that the tan plates leave my hair with a healthier shine.

Just bought this iron a few days ago. Used it & I love it! My hair has stayed straight for the past 2 days without me having to re-iron. I am buying another one for my mom! Wish it had an auto-off feature like my old one, but can't complain. 1&1/4" iron. Definitely worth the price, great product!

I have been straightening my hair for years and usually have owned ceramic straighteners I purchased from salons or kiosks in the mall. At these locations, they typically range from $150-$250. Cheaper straighteners from drug stores ($50 or less) have always been awful in my experience, pulling my hair as it slides and not heating enough to even straighten my hair. Additionally, the cheap ones put static into my hair and left it fluffy and fizzy as opposed to silky and smooth.

So, I was hesitant about buying this straightener simply because of the price. However, a friend has a Cortex that has lasted her 4 years (and still good and working!). She bought hers years ago at a kiosk for $175. So I decided to take a risk with this online purchase, making sure it was the Cortex brand...and I scored! This straightener is just as amazing as my previous expensive salon ones! It heats strongly and quickly and leaves my hair silky, smooth, shiny, and straight! I can also quickly curl my hair with it too. My only critique is it doesn't slide as smoothly as I'd like along my hair, BUT, it doesn't pull my hair out or anything like that either. Just a minor detail compared to the other more pricey straighteners.
