I got this because recommendations from the hair board. I was pretty disapointed. First off it only has a "HI MED LO" setting, which I dont like. I prefer the temperature dial. My hair is wavy and thick. I had to make many passes to make it straight and even then it wasnt how i wanted it to look. It doesn't really get that hot at all. I used it on a friend with really coarse and curly hair (puerto rican decent). I blew her hair dry, then used this over. Didn't work good. Usually when I use the CHI on her hair, it doesn't frizz up afterwards but when I used this, it did. SUCKS for most hair types id say lol.
