- Works really well
- Heats remarkably fast
- Leaves hair shiny and smooth
The handle can get a little hot and you definitely need to protect your hair before using at a high temperature. Also, curling can be a little trickier given the design of this flat iron.
You’re going to have to work hard to pass up this flat iron. And, it’s not just because of the price. This Conair hair straightener heats up in a mere 15 seconds and reaches a whopping 455ºF (that’s really about as hot as you can expect for any flat iron - and especially one within this price range). A few other bonuses include the auto shut-off (not every iron has this feature) and a huge number of temperature settings.
It’s not the absolute best at curls, but it does a good job at beach waves. The floating plates are charged with negative ions to make your hair smooth and gorgeous. The tourmaline ceramic technology really does leave your hair anti-frizz and static-free. Just watch out; this can get really, really hot. And, then there’s the price.
