The Sedu Revolution was my first ever "high end" flat iron and I am SO glad I purchased it! It heats up fast, has a temperature gauge up to 450 degrees, and makes my hair super shiny. My hair glides easily in this iron, no "grabbing" like some others have done to my hair.
Overall it's a high quality, does what it says it does, flat iron. I've dropped it a couple of times and still works like a charm. The price is up there but I feel like this is ten times better quality than any CHI flat iron.

I really wanted to like this flat iron. I was debating between this one and the GHD and I chose wrong. I have thick, coarse, curly hair that takes time to straighten. I had a paul mitchell before this and it ended up breaking on me. I then had the Jilbere Nano Ceramic Ionic Flat Iron from Sally's which worked amazing for me, but I wanted to be able to curl it so I got the Sedu. Personally, it just doesn't do the job for me. I gave it a 3/5 because it is not the worst iron ever, I think it would be great for someone with less hair , it just isn't for me I guess.

This is by far one of my favorite flat irons I've ever owned. Back in 2007 I purchase a Solia which was good but since I have very thick, coarse, curly hair the Solia wasn't doing it for me anymore so I sold that to my friend and I purchased the Sedu. I have had it since 2008, and its now 2012, and it still works like the day I purchased it, except maybe that the plates don't seem to heat up like they should but since I typically use this only once a month now since I've went natural. Another reason I definitely would re-purchase again is because most flat irons do not have a temperature setting, but this one goes clear up to 450 and with my hair and curls, I have to turn the flat iron all the way up otherwise my hair would look extremely gross and would not get completely straight.

This does not even compare to the Ionic Ceramic Iron (which is amazing by the way!) I bought this so I could curl my hair better since the plates are smaller and have rounded edge. It never smoothed my hair as well. This is more comparable to a Chi iron. Which in my opinion aren't so great. The worst part is after having it only a year and a half, the plates slowly got cooler and cooler. Even though I had it all the way turned up. They just would not heat up right. Until eventually one plate didn't heat up at all. Irons are expensive and they need to last longer than a year and a half. My other Sedu iron lasted six years!

Like the previous reviewer, I think the original Sedu flat iron is a bit better than this Revolution one. I have both right now and actually wanted to buy the Revolution at first because of the curling properties involved. But the original one was cheaper so I got that one. This one does the job well and straightens my hair very well. It does curl too but I have yet to master the curling technique with a flat iron. However, as stated previously, the original sedu for some reason, has smoother plates. It glides nicer than this one. Had I not purchased the original, I would think this one was good too, but since I have a comparison, the original have smoother plates and makes hair more shiny. Overall, this is still a good flat iron. Both of mine work very well and I bought the original in 2007. I bought this one a couple of months ago and either one hasn't given me any problems. I'd recommend them :)

I work in a salon, so I got this iron as a back up iron for really cheap. Prior to buying this iron, I already had the original Sedu, (which in my opinion, is a better iron than the Revolution.) The Revolution is a good iron, & it gets very hot, but the plates don't leave my hair as smooth & shiny as the original Sedu. The original is also a little bit cheaper by the way. This overall is still a good iron, but if I had to choose, I would definitely choose the original. This iron still beats out the Chi & Babyliss.

This is without a doubt the best flat iron I have ever tried. I could rave about it all day. I've had mine for almost 3 years, and it still works amazingly! It has temperature control, heats up pretty quickly, and doesn't snag my hair. It doesn't damage my hair like most flat irons, even hairdressers comment on how healthy my hair is when I flat iron most days! All my friends love my Sedu, and it keeps my hair straight all day long. It allows you to straighten your hair with volume, or make it stick straight! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

My CHI finally went and I was in the market for a new iron. I wasn't even considering this until a fellow MAUer posted a code that brought the price down to $85 on Folica. I have coarse curly "ethnic" hair. This gets my hair straight in less time than the CHI, leaves my hair with body, and I like that it has temperature control. It's a step above the CHI but I don't think I'd be so impressed had I paid full price.

I bought this when it first came out. It doesn't have a swivel cord, it snags... a ton. Which is what it specifically advertises that it does not do. I have it set all the way to 450 and go over a piece multiple times and I'm lucky if it does anything. An hour later my hair looks like it did before I straightened. I feel like it has lost it's power over time. I have the 2in sedu which is broken and held together with electrical tape and it works better then the revolution. Blah.

The Sedu Revolution is no better than my Solia. They both get the job done with great results. The only difference is Solia is cheaper which makes more economical for me.

It's an okay flat iron. I've used it now for about 9 months, and I get no hair damage from almost daily use with it. It doesn't pull at or snag the hair at all. It's very easy to use and handle for a variety of styles.

I will start this off by repeating what just about everyone else has said so far. I have tried CHI, FHI, Solano, Babyliss, and GHD. I work at a store that carries these products and my sister and mother have gone through the GHD and the CHI.. after re-purchasing most products 2 or 3 times after a year or less.. my sister and mother as well as myself got super frustrated. I came across a review on another website for the Sedu Revolution (not the original) and it had beat out CHI and GHD in ratings for the year prior. I am happy to say every female in my family owns one and has had no complaints. It is incredibly sturdy ( I like it when irons have a bit of weight to them, they seem more durable and your getting what you pay for). My hair is super shiny and it stays shiny and frizz free all day, I really have not seen damage to my hair either. Also the thickness is perfect I have pretty long hair now and the one inch still works fine! I love my Sedu and I will repurchase!! :)

I bought it yesterday and used it this morning, i was skeptical at first and i read some reviews and this sounds like a great iron. It is soooo nice and all it takes is one pass through my hair and its straight and shiny! Think of a butter knife slicing through warm butter, that is how smooth the glide was through my hair.
I have tried every drugstore brand flat iron, i have tried CHI and the CHI Turbo, i have a Le Angelique, HerStyler, and a GHD and none have satisfied me quite like the Sedu. I got it on sale for $139.95 with a 20% off coupon. If you have the $$ i def would reccomend this iron.

I have been flat ironing my hair regularly for the past 9 years. In that span I have owned several flat iron brands. The CHI was my favorite---until I realized their quality was beginning to lack in the last few years. I have owned 4 CHI's. My first CHI was the only one that lasted more than a year before having some sort of electrical short. I thought I was being to rough with them, or using them too often. So I continued to buy CHI's throughout the years, because they worked better than other brands I would try out in between my CHI purchases.
The last CHI I bought was maybe 3 years ago, and I had it less than a year before the electrical issues started. I made sure I was ultra gentle with the cord, never wrapping it around the iron, never pulling it out of the outlet, or forgetting to turn it off after use. But it didn't matter. It still shorted out. So I started to research different flat iron brands. Back in the day, CHI was top-of-the-line when it came to ceramic flat iron technology. Nowadays, ceramic flat irons can be bought anywhere, for half the price of a CHI.
So, I began to research different flat irons after my final CHI gave out. SEDU was a brand that kept popping up in my search. So I decided to take the hit in my wallet, and I bought one. BEST HAIR TOOL PURCHASE EVER. PERIOD.
I have had my SEDU for 2 years now. No electrical issues, and it makes my hair shinier than my CHI's ever did. I think I paid $40 more than what the CHI equivalent would have cost. However I actually saved money because I am sure I would have needed another CHI by now. The only other flat iron I would consider purchasing would be the 2-inch SEDU because my hair is much longer now than it was 2 years ago.

I think this is one of the best if not the best flat iron on the market in terms of performance. My only gripe is that it takes too long to heat up and the cord is not the best because it gets a bit tangly overtime. But otherwise this is amazing and gives amazing results without giving you split ends and keeping your hair healthy, thanks to the temperature dial. You just got to find the right temp. for you but the only thing is that you cannot find your temp precisely on the dial if it doesn"t have your setting so you have to guess. For example i need 370 degrees, but the dial has got a 360 and the next setting is 450 and no numbers in between. but i have gaged it pretty close to where i think it is on the dial to where it works just right for me. but that is my only problem.

When my 3 year old Remington Wet 2 Straight started to pull, and snag on my hair I decided it was time for a new flat iron.
After weeks of researching I had my heart set on a GHD. But I just couldn't give in to spending THAT much money on a flat Iron. So I settled for a Sedu 1'. Folica.com claimed it was the number 1 flat iron, and the reviews were fantastic, so I bought one. When I first took it out of the packaging I was disappointed, it was cheap looking.
When I started using it I was soo devastated. I wanted to LOVE the product, but I can't. It fried and pulled my hair worse then my old straightener. It left my hair poofy, and frizzy. I could hear it scrape and fry my hair. The only reason it gets 2 starts is because it DID straighten my hair, and left it soft feeling.But at the same time it feels gross, dead and fried.I was expecting way more out of it.
I will definitely be saving my money and buying a GHD

I gave this 2 because it straightens, but don't bother with this iron unless you've got extremely coarse hair; you will definitely be doing yourself some very unnecessary damage otherwise.
I recently bought and subsequently returned this from Folica when my 6 yr old Chi Turbo finally broke. I've used a lot of high end flat irons (I'm a licensed cosmetologist), and since I had liked the design of this one's plates and Sedu irons are supposed to be decent, I went for it. Unfortunately, this iron--even at a low heat--damaged my hair. This wasn't due to user default--i know how to do my hair, and while I'll admit I've got chemically damaged hair,I knew this going in--it's why I had the iron down to 200. The plates on this thing are horrible; though they managed to suitably "smooth" and flatten down my hair, I could actually hear and feel them "smoothing" and "flattening" the whole way through! I had to turn it up to see if this was the problem, but no, this iron just sucks. It's true that your hair may be smooth and flat after you use this, but the damage will be such (especially if you've got a bleached section like I do) that you will be required to use an iron again and again, compounding the problem, as your hair will become damaged and frizzy (my hair was was not the "frizzy" type before this iron, but trust me--it sure as hell is now). A decent ironing should last for a week, or most likely sooner depending on when you wash your hair. With this one you'll eventually end up doing it everyday. Plus, the curls this thing made weren't any nicer than the Hai I exchanged it for--it also cost 2x more than a HAi.

This flat iron is amazing!! I have natural, unprocessed, 4a/b, fine hair. I only have to pass this iron through once at 340 degrees to get my hair straight! My hair doesn't revert easily in the rain, either! The best thing is that there is no burnt flat iron smell in my hair after using this! No damage either! I LOVE my Sedu Revolution!

bought this when it first came out 1 1/2 years ago or so and returned it. i bought it before i was willing to succumb to the high price of the GHD. glad i returned it and went with the GHD. the sedu revolution is a decent iron but it doesn't even come close to the GHD.

I have used an original 1 inch chi since December of 2008, it quit working in January of 2010, so I figured it was time to get another. I always assumed I would purchase another chi, until I delved deeper into researching flat irons and came across Sedu on folica.com. After watching youtube videos, and researching countless reviews, I took the plunge and purchased. I have very unique hair. I am German and Native American ethnically, and my hair is EXTREMELY thick. As well as having a TON of hair, each individual strand of hair is wiry and course. I chose this particular model over the other Sedu flat iron because it is shaped exactly like the chi, and you can curl with it due to the rounded sides. This flat iron is fabulous and does exactly what I'd hope for. It's fast and leaves my hair noticeably more shiny than the chi ever did. I also like the fact you can change the temp, although I have it turned all the way up by choice. I would recommend this if you are looking for a very good quality flat iron that is very versatile.
