I'm writing a review for the Remington Wet 2 Straight that is being sold in Australia. It seems to be different from other reviews as it has very wide plates, blue digitial screen and heat settings from 180 degrees to 230 degrees. So just in case you folk from other lands are wondering what I'm going on about ;-)
I love this straightener! It has wide plates which I find so much easier to use with long hair. I have used straighteners with long thin plates for so many years and now would never touch one after using this product.
This straightener has a digitial blue screen which i really like. You can choose what temperature you want from 180 degrees to 230. I love this feature as it's so good to be able to use this as a normal straightener with dry hair on a lower setting. I never use this with wet hair but sometimes (ok a lot) I use this with damp bits of hair when I am slack in blowdrying my hair - and it always comes out looking amazing. My hair is always really straight, smooth and awesome - never frizzy.
This is definately my HG straightener - I luff it to bits!
I've been using this for ten days now and have yet to wait for something bad to happen to my hair based on some of the negative reviews here. Guess what? NOTHING (damage, hair loss etc...) bad happened.
I love this flat iron. I was seeking a wet-to-dry iron as hot weather season is coming up and the idea of using a blowdryer in hot weather irks me. I gave this a test run and am very pleased with the results. I used this after towel drying and air drying my hair for at least an hour then started straightening the sections. My hair looks shiny and feels silky. And it does dry as it straightens.
I have strong hair that is quite coarse, so I set it on 17.
The only thing I disliked about it was the protective plastic packaging this iron came in. It's worse than trying to unwrap a music cd. I did have one of those fancy box cutters to cut through the plastic but even with that, it took a while to get to the iron itself!
Love it though and I bought it at my trip to Target (Bellingham, Washington) for only $23 US.
If you don't want to spend so much $$ on a ceramic flat iron, get this one!
It's works great and the option to use it as wet to dry straightener is brilliant! However, the "frying sound" It makes tells me I should not use it on wet hair all the time. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase.
This is my 2nd flat iron, and I love it. I've never been very good with managing to style my hair, and this flat iron makes it easy for me. The settings are really nice, it heats up fast, it beeps to let you know when it's ready. Although there is a wet setting as well, like others have mentioned, it's just not wise to use heat on wet hair. Other than that, it's a wonderful product--especially for the price. I love it. The only thing that kind of irks me is that I threw away the packaging that had the setting directions on the back of it. I had to learn about the settings through a family member who also uses it. So if you get it, don't throw away the packaging till you learn to use it correctly.
I HATE THIS PRODUCT! It pulled and snagged my hair to death!
This left my hair very very frizzy,dried and damaged looking. It snagged everytime and I had to go over my hair 3-4 times just to get it straight. Of course it never stayed straight for more than 30 seconds. I guess you get what you pay for. It did have heat settings, that was nice.
This is a great straightener for the price. I got this after my old one broke and it definitely works better than my old one. However, after using a chi at a friend's house it was hard to go back to this one. The chi seemed to make my hair much shinier. This one, if you aren't careful about conditioning can break your hair terribly at the ends. It may be straight but it doesn't seem to care too much about the health of your hair.
I inherited mine from my sister when she decided to buy a pricier, ~prettier~ straightener. I believe that mine is going on five or six years old, and it's still working perfectly. I have thick, wiry, generally uncontrollable hair, but this straightener (even at the lowest setting!) makes my hair smooth, straight, and manageable. It stays that way all day, too, which is a first for me. If this one kicks the bucket, I will happily replace it with another.
LOVE this straightner!!! It really makes your hair super straight and it lasts the whole entire day and night!!! I got my sisters hooked on it...
I added this to my arsenal of styling toosl after seeing it at Wal Mart and being intrigued by the idea of using it on wet hair. I took it home to try on towel-dried hair, and found that while it emits lots of steam, four passes left my hair still pretty damp and stringy-wavy. When I used this after blow drying, on barely damp hair, it gave much better results. Shiny, smooth and nearly-dry hair that remained frizz-free for most of the day. No different than a nomal flatiron if you ask me, and I need something with a gimmick, so I replaced this with the Conair Steam Straightener, used on dry hair, which I love.
