    This Will Get Your Day Started..
    My experience...
    The first time I tried this flat iron, I have to say, I was impressed. Its no Sedu (I own the Sedu revolution), but it would be a good replacement if mine ever quit on me. It reaches the same highest temp, and the quality is equally as stunning. I love that it also is lighter than my Sedu, so my arm doesn't give out halfway through my mess of hair. The plates are super easy to clean and don't pinch and pull my loose hairs out. I liked that hair doesn't slip through the plates, they are held pretty good in between to prevent slippage. I noticed that I haven't experienced any crimped looking hair sections like on my sedu. If I accidentally hold my Sedu in one place too long when I am waving it out, you can tell where I started to flip it. You might like this flat iron as it does give the curled look, but a more relaxed, softer and natural looking wave as the hours pass on, which can be both negative or positive, depending on how you like your hair looking at the end of the day.
    The bad...
    I was disappointed at the very end of the day when my hair fell flat as a wooden board and it looked like strings of hay instead of strands of curls. The last four days I have tested it with a pre-oil, without the pre-oil, on a higher setting, on a lower setting and all four times, at the end of the day, my hair falls flat. With my sedu, my hair will hold for DAYS! I can wear it down and the next two days in a ponytail full of curls. Eh, I will keep experimenting... Also, if used on a lower setting like 370 degrees, it takes longer to curl, from my experience. Now, I don't have medium, curly, or other-wise high maintenance hair, but my hair is not stick thin and requires alittle bit of patience when styling. I had to be extra patient when waving my hair out and even sometimes had to re-do a wavy because it didn't pick up too much heat the first time around. I usually slowly slid the iron down my hair shaft and end in a curled position. When I was rushed, I just upped the heat and was able to get done faster, but with more damage...and that, I am not happy about.
    Overall, It delivers the wave that I like and is very inexpensive compared to other high end products.

    Fried My Ends
    I have used this 2 times and did not like the results. The flat iron totally fried my ends and left them feeling hard. Totally disappointed in the quality.

    This Was My Back-up For My Sedu
    i got this as a back-up for my sedu. works well, really quick to straighten my long hair but depending on humidity and weather, my hair sometimes gets frizzy unlike sedu which is straight all day long into the night.
