This is the purple 2" straightening iron. I've had it for about 2 yrs and It still works good since the day i got it. It doesn't make hair as straight and flat as a Chi, but sometimes I prefer that because when my fine hair is so straight it starts to just look limp and thin. This iron doesn't press it so hard to make it limp, but it def. straightens it. So I like it for a little volume. I suggest it for someone with already strait hair cuz on really curly hair it might not work as well. Price is great at $30.
