    Best Straightener Ever, Hands Down.
    This straightener is the best flat iron I have ever used.
    Why, you ask?

    1. It has never snagged my hair

    2. It heats up to 450 degrees (and stays hot!) Considering that this iron is less than half the price of many salon irons, this temperature level is wicked awesome.

    3. Works on slightly damp hair (although I don't recommend doing this on a daily basis) without frying it.

    4. Hair STAYS STRAIGHT. In the summer it SOMETIMES gets a bit wavy, but I've never had my hair frizz up. This is incredible to me, because Massachusetts summers, especially by the ocean, get wicked humid.
    By the way... wicked = very, super for those of you not from MA :)

    5. This iron is ALMOST, I repeat, ALMOST, indestructible.
    How can i tell you this? I have put this iron through the firely depths of the underworld. I have dropped it over a hundred times- sometimes on carpet, sometimes on the kitchen/bathroom floor, sometimes on tile. The cord has been run over by my desk chair, tangled into knots, and wrapped tightly around the iron more than I would like to admit.. It has LITERALLY survived falling down multiple cement stairs. Last year my mom accidentally left it on our hot stove (we would leave it there to cool it off) and one side of it melted.- still worked perfectly.

    I am here today ordering a new one after nearly four years of almost-daily use, because I dropped it again today and one of the plates no longer stays in place.
    But, the plates still heat up perfectly! It's miraculous, really.


    So, if you are more coordinated than I am and can avoid dropping this iron as often as I did, you could easily own this iron for half a decade or more and still get prefect results. This appliance is truly incredible.


    A few more notes:
    - If you order this and it is not heating up or not working on your hair, please exchange it! YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE IRON. I have friends and family members with the most difficult hair imaginable (I am talking 5+ hours to straighten!) and this iron works!
    - The heat proof pouch is great, and it's free so you might as well use it! I use it when I'm traveling and to protect countertops.
    - Iron is super easy to clean, plates show no signs of damage after almost 4 years.
    - Makes your hair so soft, so shiny.. just perfect.
    - Wicked long cord is convenient for obvious reasons.


    I use this with Redken Iron Silk, which is a heat protection product. My hair gets almost no split ends, and my friends' mom, who cuts my hair, doesn't believe how often I straighten my hair. Even if you don't use a heat protecting product, this iron causes almost no damage. However, you may get flyaways without a spray, serum, or heat protector of some kind.

    Bottom line, BUY THIS. It's worth the money because this could realistically be the last iron you buy for five years or more and works SO much better than a $30 drugstore brand. Also, it's guaranteed!

    I'm A Believer!
    I have been loyal to my Chi iron for 5+ years and it finally started to give me problems. I read a ton of reviews on this iron and decided to give it a try. I have NEVER been happier! My hair is chin length, blonde highlighted, and naturally wavy/curly. I use a dryer and then my straightening iron. My hair has never been more straight. AND it looks healthy which is awesome. I highly recommend this iron and you can't beat the prices here!

    Favorite Iron Everrr
    I bought this after I bought a CHI which was more expensive and not even as good as this iron...i have the pink one and it is amazing...heats up quick, is gorgeous, well made, sturdy, well worth it! It came really fast too like one day I didnt even think it was it...BUY IT YOU WONT REGRET IT...its better than the CHI especially cause it doesnt break ur hair off around your perimeter...and those who use flat irons know what im taking about..use a CHI and you wont have any hair beyond an inch around the perimeter of your hairline! LOL

    Love It
    I've had a Chi flat iron for years that had always worked really well until the cord finally came out of the iron (most likely from my wrapping it around the iron before I put it away). I have medium thickness wavy/curly hair that i straighten every day, so I needed a replacement. After reading the reviews on folica.com, I purchased the Solia and I LOVE it. It works just as well (if not better) than the Chi, but is priced slightly lower. It also came super quickly--I placed my order (with free shipping) on a Tuesday and had the iron by Wednesday.

    Lasted Me 6 Years!!!
    I LOVE this hair straightener. It is one of the only ones that works on my extremely stubborn hair and it lasted me 6 years of hair straightening. :) It still works now actually but is starting to go out so I'm considering buying another one to replace it once it stops working. It always leaves my hair super silky and soft and heats up pretty quickly. When I first bought it 6 years ago I remember it being about $120 so I'm glad it went down in price but I would still pay $120 for it if I had to because it is TOTALLY WORTH IT!

    This Straightener Made Me A Believer
    My biggest pet peeve with straight hair is when its TOO straight. This straightener works amazingly. I've only used it three times. I'm scared to cause any serious damage to my hair but it seems ok. After the third time using it after I washed my hair its shinier more relaxed and more silky. I'm tempted to think the straightener has actually helped my hair somehow! That would be cool! I haven't mastered the curl but this video helped me alot.

    I am in love of this iron. I don't even have to blow dry my hair first to iron my hair perfectly. It is the best.

    Good On Natural And Relaxed Hair
    I am African American and still undecided about going natural. My hair is really thick and coarse without a relaxer. Right now, my hair is also half relaxed and half new growth right now. This iron straightened all of it. You will need to use some silk or straightening product to maximize the effect.
