I bought this a few years ago, and I loved it! But it was so big and bulky that I decided to get a new one by conair. The conair one worked but not nearly as well as the remington! So I went back about a week ago, and I am still in love with it! I don't use it when my hair is wet however; I have heard that it's really bad for your hair, when you do that.
Sooo here is how I use it:
1.) Shampoo/ condition my hair using Aussie cleanse and mend shampoo and conditioner.
2.) blow-dry my hair
3.) Turn on straightner to highest heat setting
4.) divide my hair into top-bottom sections
5.) Straighten (:
my first and only straightener but so far had no problems with it. good cuz itz wet 2 straight and i normally jus dry a lil but i dont have to worry about burnin my hair if its still kinda damp. i kno about 6 others who like it as well so im thinkin its a gooood buy nd on top of that its affordable
The first thing that drew me into this product was the fact that it was dual-voltage (110-240 V) so I can bring it with me wherever I travel. Chi, GHD, Sedu, other more expensive brands are typically just 110V (although they make it in 240V too) and there is no way I'm buying another $100+ flat iron and bring 2 with me wherever I go.
I have thick but really fine hair. It is naturally straight although it gets wavy if I let it air dry. I have never tried using it with wet hair, but I have used it with damp and dry hair. This product does the job well in straightening my hair and making it look sleek and smooth. I use the lowest setting possible (1-2 for dry hair, 3-4 for damp hair -- note: Remington suggests different settings but I found that these settings work best for me) and I run the iron through my hair 3-4 times to get the results I want. I use the iron maybe 2-3 times a week, always with a heat protectant, and it has not fried my hair.
For $25, this straightener has great value. It would be unfair to compare it to more expensive brands.
This was my first flat iron ever! For a $25 straightener, this is actually really good. I highly recommend this flat iron if you don't want to spend a lot of money for a very expensive one. It gets the job done, and heats up quickly. The downfall of this flat iron is that it has indents in it where water escapes if you are straightening with wet hair. Those indents collect up dirt and burnt product really quickly, making a disgusting burning smell when you turn it on. It's also very hard to clean. It also snags on your hair a lot, too, since the plates aren't raised and have those indents. I had this flat iron for a year, and for a low quality flat iron, that's really good!
my mom got me this in 8th grade and i loved it. i had a purple conair one that broke so she replaced it with the remington wet 2 straight 2 inch straightner. its been 3 years and im still using it. UNFORTUNATELY! i always use a heat protective product, however this straightener has damaged my hair sooo much. i get a haircut and the second i need to straighten my hair i get split ends after one use. im not gunna say it left my hair a poofy mess because it didnt... until now its so damaged it doesnt even really straighten without being a tad poofy in the back which annoys me to no end. now i rarely ever straighten my hair and use mousse every other day or 2 to keep the frizz at bay. however my sister got a Le Angelique straightener for christmas. im hearing really good reviews on that so im excited to try it.
HORRIBLE! I should have known better when the sales lady at Ulta tried to warn me that someone had just returned one the day before as I was buying it. Given the fact that it was on sale I decided to try it anyone. IT WAS AWFUL! Anyone that thinks this is a good flat iron has never used a quality product before. This thing was worse than my first $15 dollar Conair that I used about 8 years ago!
Needless to say I returned it the next day!
I tried to used it on towel-dried hair and ended up with a big poof of hair. Decided to try it on my blow dried-hair...same results! It didn't glide through my hair at all - almost pulled the entire way.
TOTAL PIECE OF JUNK!!! I do not recommend at all! I am now using the Remington Shine Therapy Conditioning Flat Iron - 10000% better than this thing and only about $20 bucks more :)
I hate this POS straightener! What a waste of money. It did absolutely nothing for my hair. Didn't straighten wet or dry. And the settings are in an awkward place where you hold it
I use this straightener and have for a while. I read reviews saying it dries out your hair .. well if you put it on the highest setting on dry hair... go figure. But anyway, you can adjust the temperature. It does dry wet/damp hair like it says. It gets hair pretty straight but sometimes hair gets a wave in it after a while. Then again no straightener can keep your hair stick straight the whole day. Is pretty cheap... Overall satidfactory, I will say that I have used better though.
I think this hair straightener is very underrated! I have very curly thick hair and LOTS of it, and this is seriously the ONLY hair straightener that can get it PIN straight. Not even a CHI could get it as straight as this. You either really love this straightener or hate it, and I cannot live without mine!
i do not use this product on wet hair.
IT IS AMAAZINNGGG.
and it can curl.
ou dont have to twist or anything.
no doubts, i love it.
i am gettign either a coriollis straightener(breast cancer pink) or a chi, but i will still use this straightenr, I LOVEE IT
5 years, still amaazingg!(:
not dirty either!!!
