Despite what people raves about, I saw zero hype in this iron. My hair is thick, frizzy and a little coarse but nothing too crazy. No curls, no serious straightening to do but it couldn’t hack it. Maybe because my hair is so thick, or the material used to make the plates on the iron, I don’t know. But I had to iron my hair in the tiniest most inconvenient sections for well over a year before a friend showed me an iron that actually does what it’s supposed to. I have this shoved in a drawer somewhere because it hates my hair.
