I’ve been using this iron a few days out of the week for the past two months now, and I really like the results it gives me. I’ve never owned a flat iron with plates larger than one inch (with the exception of mt first flat iron at the age of 13), so I figured because my hair is long and thick, that 1.5″ would probably be more beneficial for my hair. I am very happy to say that the 1.5″ plates do indeed work so much better on my hair. I can flat iron all of my hair in half of the time it would take me with my previous 1″ flat iron.
The plates are very smooth and they glide through my hair quickly and easily. Thankfully, the plates don’t grab or pinch any of my hairs and pull/break them like other flat irons I’ve used.
The iron has an adjustable temperature dial that reaches 450 degrees. My hair is thick, with medium-fine texture (not coarse or super fine) and I typically use it at around 360-380 degrees. For my bangs, and the hair that frames my face, I turn the heat down to around 240.
The iron also does a very good job curling my hair, but overall, I prefer using a curling iron, as I find that the curls have better shape and last longer. I do use this iron though for it’s convenience, as a curling iron takes much longer time.
I also tried the HANA Shine Shield Thermal Protectant, which is a serum that works as a leave-in conditioner as well as a heat protector when using hot styling tools. It contains jojoba oil, which helps moisturize and add shine to the hair.
I find it to be very similar to CHI Silk Infusion. In comparison to Silk Infusion, HANA Shine Shield is less dense, and it doesn’t weigh down my hair or make it feel greasy or sticky. It adds a little shine to my hair and helps camouflage split ends. It also has a nice, fresh scent, whereas Chi has a very musky scent.
It’s available in two (2 oz) and six (6 oz) ounces, the two ounce being handy for travel.
PROS: Doesn’t create frizz, glides through the hair easily, doesn’t pull or pinch the roots, cuts down my straightening time, can be used to curl or straighten – though for my thick hair, I prefer using it to straighten, swivel cord that doesn’t tangle, 2 year warranty, includes lots of extras.
CONS: The 1.5″ plates make it slightly difficult to flat iron my bangs with a slight curl. I find that when using this iron on my bangs, they sometimes come out too straight and end up looking flat.
PACKAGING: No complaints.
OVERALL: This iron retails for $132.99, with free, same-day shipping. It comes with several extras as well as a 2 year warranty. They also have hassle free returns, with no extra fees. Also, there are always coupon codes available. It’s definitely an investment if you usually gravitate toward lower-end brands, but I think it’s worth it, as I haven’t used any other lower-end flat iron with as good of results.
