I purchased this flat iron a couple of months ago and have been nothing but happy with it! It was the first quality iron I have invested in. It leaves my hair super straight and soft and shiny. I naturally have very thick hair with a lose wave and its typically difficult to get very straight, but not with this iron! I have really noticed the difference between my old iron and this one. It doesn't seem to be damaging my hair at all either and I use it on a regular basis. Two or three times a week at least. It also came with a storage/travel case. It's lightweight as well. I also love the look of the orange and white! I have found my new go-to styling tool.
