I dont get why this got such horrible reviews. I love it! I have to say I like the results from my ceramic flat iron better. But, If you want to straighten your hair quickly this is for you. The only down side is it is really heavy. I have arthritis in my hands and the weight of this does hurt my hands. Overall extremely pleased. It heats up in one minute! Awesome price too-
This was a Christmas gift to myself! I have waist length hair, so straightening my hair is definitely not an easy task...UNTIL NOW! I love this...and would recommend this to anyone tired of using a flat iron to straighten your hair! I was very pleased with the service I received from the time I placed the order to the time I received the product. Order a few weeks in advance if giving as a gift. I would also recommend, SymbolLife try to come up with a model that does not have the control buttons, where the grip of your hand goes. It's a bit difficult, trying to avoid pushing the buttons when using it!
I can straighten my hair with this in about 5 minutes or less. I have very thick hair. Normal straightener would take about 15 minutes. Works well but it takes forever to reach the heat setting I use. I use 200C-210C for my hair and it takes about 15 minutes to warm up. And it looses heat as you use it on your hair and because it warms up so slow it never gets back to temp unless you take a long break. A lot cheaper than other brands so I give it 4 starts. Flawed but works.
I was not impressed with this tool. I am a cosmotolagist and I wanted to be able to run this thru hair for a quick style so I bought for myself and a couple people with different hair types to try. If you have semi straight hair this is a tool for you but if you have strong waves or curls in your hair it will not give you smooth straight hair. Leaves it wavy and very volumous . It does work well for touch ups after you have flat ironed and need to get the ponytail marks out of your hair or after a workout and you need to fix a very slight wave.
Does exactly what I'd hoped for my wavy to curly (depending on the humidity) hair. I agree with other reviewers, placement of the power and temperature controls is annoying. Do yourself a favor and buy one of the heat resistant gloves that pops up as a suggested item when you order this item. I did not and quickly learned that it is necessary to protect the hand that is not holding the appliance.
I had accidentally ordered this item and had initially asked for a refund and was asked by the seller to return it in its original and I would get full credit for it. Once I got it I decided to try it out and I was very disappointed. To start off the packaging was dark on one corner as if it had gotten wet. I connected it and it took forever to turn on. It says its supposed to go all the way up to 230°C but only heats up to 165 and does absolutely nothing for my hair. I've tried it a couple times and it turns on when it wants to. I am very disappointed with this product.
