This is the worst straightener anyone can buy. LADIES and some men too. hehe

DON'T buy this! It will damage your hair like nothing you've seen before. You have to go over your hair a million times with this to get it straight. Your hair dries out like MAD. and you get dead ends like MAD with this. it doesn't even give you a nice hold. Your hair doesn't stay straight with this.

I splurged and got the chi. Its the best thing I've ever done. I didn't even realize how bad this remington straightener was for my hair. The Chi has cut my hair straigtening time down by a little over 1/3 of the time. And my hair is getting softer too. it doesn't look so dry. I can't believe how it looked before. my lord. Don't buy this cheapo you guys!

Ive had this for about 2 months and it works just as great as the real expensive ones. In fact my friend had bought a $90 hair straightner and said this one works a lot better!

cons: it can turn off easily (it has the automatic timer thing) and you cant flip the ends of your hair out

but this is the best straightner for the money your paying

for reference i have thick long hair.

This is the only hair straightener I could afford at the time (2 years ago). I bought it because it was on sale, and am infinitely happy for it. Not only does it work well on wet hair, but the variety of settings can help you get a comprimise, from super-sleek, so slightly wavy. Personally I have curly, normal-thick hair so I was delighted that I didn't need to spend a fortune for straight hair.
For this price, if mine ever broke, I'd probably buy the same thing! Oh, and it lasts... I've had mine so long, and never had a problem.

I absolutely love this flat iron. Granted it's only the 2nd one I've ever tried, but after the results I've had with this one compared to that first one, I know I've found a great flat iron. I have thick, wavy, frizzy hair (that only gets worse if I blow dry it); there isn't much I can do with it, other than throw it in a ponytail and be done with it. This flat iron is the miracle I've been searching for.
First, the negative: turns out I can't use it when my hair is damp. I get the same frizzy results as I do with a hair dryer but it would take forever to fully dry it since my hair is so thick (honestly, I didn't even try getting it fully dry - with the results I was getting, I just knew it was pointless). Also, if you have to use a higher setting on dry hair, it leaves your hair really hot. I almost burned my fingers once or twice but if you brush through the section you've just ironed it cools down right away.
The positive: it works absolute wonders on my hair when it's dry. It takes me about 20 minutes to get the results I'm after, starting on a higher setting (around 15 or 16) then going around again on a lower one (around 9 or 10). My hair is so much softer and shinier when I use this flat iron and I can actually style it now, instead of just putting it in a ponytail. I love the fact it allows my hair to keep it's volume and doesn't leave it pin straight and flat on my head. If you have thick, wavy hair and this is the look you want, this might not be the flat iron for you. The digital heat control is great, as well. It's color coded to help you find the best setting for your hair depending on thickness and if it's wet, damp or dry.
At about $20 for the 1 inch or $25 for the 2 inch, this is the most inexpensive ceramic plate flat iron I've come across and well worth every penny.

Bought this on a recommendation from a Sephora SA, when she saw me eyeing up the $300 similar product they carry on their shelves. I wouldn't use this straightener on wet hair, but I dry my hair until it's barely damp and then use it and it works great. No complaints, and the price is right -- about $40-50. Heats up in about 60 seconds, has a bunch of settings. The only thing I didn't like at first was the placement of the setting buttons .. I kept hitting them accidentally with my fingers. Then I figured out I needed to have my hands up further to clamp the straightener and that worked that problem out just fine.

DO NOT BUY THIS STRAIGHTENER!!! I used it I have curly/wavy hair, mostly curly, and I bought it, thinking yeah its gonna work! i used it, my hair ended up a poofy disaster, even when it was dry! Save your money for something you can use, I bought another straightener, from hot shot tools, called helen of troy, and it works well, but its slow, buy like an iso, or gold 'n hot, maybe a sedu or paul mitchel, but do not waste your money, on this peice of crap!

I have had this straightener for 3 years, and it still works like a charm. I love it. It does not straighten wet hair very well like it claims, but if you turn it up to the highest heat setting, it straightens dry hair like it's nothing. I'm picky about my hair being perfectly straight, and this straightener does the job. It's a steal at $20, as well.

I recently had my hair cut in a style that requires me to flat iron it. My mom got me this iron, and it does a great job on my thick, wavy hair. I haven't used it on wet hair, but I set it on the highest setting for dry hair (10), and it did a great job. I've never flat ironed my hair myself before, but I was really impressed by how easy it was, and by the results. My family thought my hair looked great!
