After waiting, researching and keeping an eye on the different ceramic irons, I finally chose Babyliss. For a long time I wanted the TURBO CHI but the prices were still outrageous. Sure it might live up to all the hype but it is still way up there in pricing. Well after a few months of searching finally I found the BABYLISS PRO BAB2590 and it is fabulous! I have had an older Professional Luxor and sure it works but didn't quite get hot fast enough. I have very curly hair and don't care to spend a long time in getting it all straightened. The first time I used BABYLISS....OMG...IT HEATED IMMEDIATELY & IT STRAIGHTED IT RIGHT AWAY. I DID NOT BLOW DRY FIRST EITHER. My niece loved it as well and is asking for one for Christmas. All I can say is THANK YOU BABYLISS!!!!
Overall, this is an excellent real ceramic hair straightener for a great price.
Some things I like about the product are: (1) the adjustable temperature dial is nice for those with fine hair as a mid-range temperature works fine for my hair and it allows me to minimize the heat damage. (2) the cord is extra long, longer than any of my other hair appliances, and is great if you are in a space where the outlet is far from a mirror, or at the gym and trying to stay out of people's way while sharing a mirror. (3) The plate is really wide. I feel like it gets the hair really smooth even with just a quick pass. I have really long hair and find it very helpful as I don't want to create any more damage by having to move the iron over the hair really slowly, or having to make two passes over the hair section.
The thing that is a little odd (but not bad when you get used to it) is the comb-like attachment on one side. As you slide the flat iron down the hair shaft, if this clip is facing up instead of down, it will pull on your hair terribly and get tangled. I made this mistake several times when I first bought this product and wasn't yet used to it. Now that I have used a few weeks, it doesn't bother me (and I don't make that mistake any more). I'm not sure it really serves a purpose. I assume it is intended to separate the hair, and maybe that is helpful for people with curly hair? My hair has a slight wave to it, and it doesn't seem to do anything for me.
I've had this product for over a year now and still use it regularly. It has held up well, and still works like new.Read more ›
This one pretty much gets the job done. Here's a summary of my experience with it. For the record, I have medium thick hair about shoulder length and a LOT of it.
HEAT: It heats up fast...about 1-2 minutes. The heat, however, doesn't seem to stay constant. Sometimes while using it, I notice that it might get a little cooler only to heat up again. Still, it's not a large drop in temperature and the only thing I have to do is go over that portion of hair again. It doesn't get as hot as my Conair one did so I typically have to set it to one of the highest settings.
GLIDE: The porcelain ceramic is excellent. It's VERY smooth. It never catches my hair. No complaints here.
COMB: The comb is good. Sometimes it pulls my hair out but that's probably because it's already slightly tangled. All combs do pull some hair out, I guess. At first glance, the comb seemed to small to make a difference in my thick hair but after trying it, it combed through perfectly.
TEXTURE: My hair feels kind of rough before hand but the straightener definitely makes it smoother. But it's not as smooth as I would like it to be. This damages my hair a lot more easily than other straighteners. Also, when I run it through certain sections of my hair (i.e. bangs), it leaves them looking frizzy.
BOTTOM LINE: It's decent for the price you pay. My experience with it definitely hasn't been as AMAZING as other people's have been. But I'm still using it and will probably continue to do so until it breaks. After that, however, I think I'll look for another straightener instead of purchasing this one again.

This is my default straightener at home and when traveling. I've taken it to Europe, Asia and South America and have never had an issue because of its dual-voltage feature.Published 20 days ago by Stacy
great straightener. I've had three of these over the last dozen years. used in a salon, so they get used a lot, dropped a lot, and just keep doing such a great job. Read morePublished 21 days ago by ed h

One my second one in over 8 years! This thing is GREAT for thick hair, as it has the built in comb so it does a majority of the work for you. Read morePublished 1 month ago by GIMME TIGER
