OMG this is like for a childs hair..it would take me an hour to do y own hair and its short, I was hoping it would be awesome but not a chance to tiney!!!
I use a flat iron every day. I also travel quite a bit. So, I thought a mini flat iron might be perfect, as it would take up less valuable real estate in my suitcase. I should have tried it before I traveled with it the first time. I am glad it was a short trip, because I had bad hair the whole time! This iron doesn't get hot enough. If you have a normal amount of hair, the mini wand will take longer. If you have a lot of hair, you better set that wake-up call a couple hours earlier than normal (or wear your hair up)! It's cute and small, though.
Maybe this is a great product for really fine already straight hair, but if you have medium to thick hair don't get this. I knew it was just a travel size and bought it thinking it would be great for touch ups but it just isn't great. I'd use it to curl the ends of my hair (I have a similar sized straightener that I use for that already that works fabulously) but it doesn't get the job done.
I know it was free, but still not worth it. I had a static problem after using it. My opinion.
While adorable, the tiny size makes this impractical and ultimately not that useful. I guess it could be used on bangs (which I don't have)? Or on tiny clumps of very fine hair? Who knows what was the intended use. But this one is just gathering dust in its (admittedly, very cute) pouch.
I thought that this straightener would be a little bigger. If you want to just use it for bangs it may work, but I feel like it just breaks my hair when tried it.
I have to give this more than one star, because it is so stinkin cute. However, it is really really small. I saw that on other reviews before I bought it and said "so what?" but the plates really are TINY. I might use it in the future if I cut bangs, and need it while traveling, but if I really were to need to straighten a whole head of hair, it'd be a nightmare.
I have thick hair and this did not work well. Did not heat up enough and was way too small. You would have to have real thin hair for it to work well. Good luck!
I've had other mini straighteners, and I was really excited about this one. However, it is smaller than most others, but got super hot, so it was really easy to accidentally put kinks in my hair. It's super cute, but I wish it worked better.
Cute design, but much too small for my long hair and I prefer the mirror-finish tourmaline plates rather than these.
