I love this flat iron!! I have had mine for ten years. Not just this brand and model, the exact same iron. I bought mine at Target for less than $20 as an impulse buy. I figured I would use it a handful of times but I am completely hooked! I have the widest size they have (I think 3 inches?) and use on dried, mid-back length hair. I have never used on my hair while wet, nor have any desire to so I cannot speak to the accuracy of the product name. It gives a great smooth look without making my hair look too thin or flat. I used a friend's $150+ Chi and I HATED the result!!! It was TOO flat and straight. The Wet 2 Dry smooths out all my kinks without flattening it into oblivion. It is great at putting a slight "bend" in my hair while defrizzing the length of my hair. I love the huge range of temperatures. I don't mind not knowing the temp in degrees; I would honestly rather not know. My hair is a little on the fine side but I have lots of it and 17 is the perfect temp for me for a super straight look. If I want to leave a little more texture in my hair, I'll use it on 15 to get smooth body by holding my hair at the top of each section and moving the iron gently but quickly down, rather than pulling straight out or down from my scalp. I don't find this iron to be overly damaging; I rarely have breakage or hair left behind after I'm done using it. The cord length is fine and functions as it should. I stay pretty close to my mirror when using so I don't need a cord that's a mile long. I used my mom's 1 inch wide version of this iron and found it makes nice little bends and lift in my crown and part area. I am afraid when the one I have decides to break down, the newest version of this iron just won't have the same magic. So I am babying this one as best I can for using it everyday. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants smooth, straighter hair.
This straightened my hair well but it completely dried it out. If you use the straightener with wet hair it dries it but of you use it on dry hair it strips the hair of it's normal moisture leaving it limp and dead!
Had one of these when I was in high school and used it daily. It was the skinnier one and it got the job done. My friend had the wider one and I preferred it more. Nothing special about it, but I wouldn't straighten wet hair period. Its very damaging and never have done it.
I had one of the originals bought at Kmart over 10 years ago for around$15-20. I liked it; It worked well and removed the need for a noisy and time consuming blow out in the morning after showering. Some say it is bad for the hair because it has to boil the water out of it; some say it is good for the hair. Keep the vent holes pointed AWAY from your scalp or you will have a hellacious steam burn. Would I repurchase? Yes, because it was a workhorse and lasted me 10 years. I would not use on damp hair though. I personally had no issues doing my roots with it and liked the color coded heat settings. If it was redesigned so the seams between the iron and the plastic didnt catch hair, it would be perfect. No need for $$$$ blow dryers or irons.
I've had this straightener for about 4-5 years and it is awful. I would advise anyone to not straighten wet hair! Here's the reasons why:
*Whenever I bought this, it was about £50 and that is ridiculous for something that ruins your hair.
*You can't use it near your roots so you end up with dry ends and damp roots which defeats the purpose of the product.
*Pulls and snags at your hair, it doesn't glide smoothly at all.
*Made my hair a frazzled mess.
Overall, an absolutely terrible product! Invest in GHD's and a decent hair dryer.
I am writing about the Remington Wet 2 Straight 2" Flat Iron with Soy Infused Plates (not digital, $25 @ WalMart - DO NOT purchase from Walgreens, it is $10 more: $35!)
link to the flat iron: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Remington-Wet-2-Straight-1-Flat-Iron/21150197
I will endlessly RAVE about this product!
I absolutely love love love it!
It really does what it says:straightens dry, damp, and wet hair.
I never had perfect, sleek, smooth hair because I have thick, heavy, curly hair, and LOTS of it. This straightener really works like it says it does. Within a couple minutes, I went from SOAKING wet hair to straight, sleek, frizz & static free smooth hair, something I never had before! It also does NOT leave your hair smelling burnt or feeling coarse. Instead, as crazy as it may sound, it felt like (though the steam was hissing loud as heck!) the soy-infused plates were nourishing my hair - no joke!
DO NOT freak out that it hisses very loud: it's just the steam escaping through the holes at the top of this flat iron! It sounds like it's going to kill your hair, but it in fact makes it healthier-looking and healthier-feeling somehow! Take this from someone who's had a perm a couple months ago!
Go out there and give this thing a whirl - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
I certainly hope Remington does not discontinue this flat iron because this is going to be all I'll ever use for life! Who needs a $100 Chi when you can have a little $25 secret weapon? ;)
I also paired this flat iron with Suave's Moroccan Infusions Shine Mask for scent, smoothness, shine, and frizz control. It is only $2.88 @ Wal-Mart (yep, Wal-Mart is where it's at!)
here's a link to the mask: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Suave-Professionals-Moroccan-Infusion-Deep-Conditioning-Shine-Mask-8-fl-oz/22359275
While I'm at it, I'll add a couple words about the mask;
-adds super shine
-makes hair tons more manageable
-makes your hair heavenly smooth and soft!
-I own the high-end Moroccanoil Weightless Hydrating Mask, http://www.walmart.com/ip/Suave-Professionals-Moroccan-Infusion-Deep-Conditioning-Shine-Mask-8-fl-oz/22359275 , and that thing costs $41 for 8.5 OZ. The Suave is 8 OZ and only $2.88, and really is like the same thing!
Get this flat iron, and this mask, and you will be one happy camper like me ! :)
This stuff really works. I usually take a while straightening but after I used this it took a lot less to do my hair in the morning. My friends that have used it have purchased one of their own. I have used it with my hair both wet and dry and I get great results. It broke on me after 3 years but the only reason I did not repurchase is because I wanted a flat iron I can straighten and curl with but unfortunately this is not a 2in1 it's just a straightener. If you are looking for just a straightener look no further the price is also great ($15 - $20)
I love this hair straightener. My brothers girlfriend bought me one and I have had trouble straightening my thinck, curly hair for years. I would have to blow dry it and spend at least 30 min straightening it. With this straightener it takes me less than 10 min, even if my hair is super frizzy and curly. I would recommend it to anyone!
I have been using my wet2straight for 5 years now! I have never had a hair straightener last that long! It has been consistent since I first used it. I have really long fine hair and the 2" does a perfect job. I usually wash my hair at night and straighten the next morning. On average, it takes about 10 minutes. Be careful if you apply liquid heat protectant - it will steam and burn your hand if it's too close to the heat plates. It leaves my hair soft and shiny. If I overuse it on a section, then it creates flyaway hair. Nothing a little hair creme can't fix. I would NOT recommend using this on wet hair. The only time I do is if I'm short on time and even then I only use it on my bangs. It leaves them so rough and dull looking...I can't imagine using this on my entire wet head. Also, if you forget to unplug it, it will beep every hour or two...sometimes its woken me up in the middle of the night. I guess it's promoting safety! haha overall, I have no complaints - this straightener gets the job done!
THIS IS HORRIBLE FOR YOUR HAIR. DON'T USE IT. My cousin is a hairdresser, and she warns about how bad this is. It will ruin your hair, even if you use a hair protectant. It is not good to straighten your hair while it is wet, even though this product claims to be able to do so. It will damage your hair. Plus. it makes your hair look like a piece of paper after you use it. It makes it TOO straight, to the point where it's not attractive. Just get a different straightener, please.
