This iron is horrible. Do not buy it it would take you about 20 to 40 minutes to straighten your hair.
I got this straightening iron as part of a chemical reconditioning straightening system. This is an ionic straightening iron with twelve different settings. It is a pretty decent iron, makes my hair shiney, does a good job of straightening my very stubborn, wavy hair and has a slim face, perfect for straightening small amounts of hair at a time. A nice iron, but I am looking for something that might have more power.
