    I'd Buy This Again And Again! In Fact, I'm Buying One As A Gift...
    It straightens beatifully. Wonderfully. Like a dream.That's the expectation you have when you invest this kind of money in a flat iron. As such, I'd like to focus my review on the OTHER things that make this TOTALLY worth the investment. A) The plates are curved. This is really helpful, as it seems that a hard corner could be rough on your hair, like other flat irons sometimes have. B) Although it gets REALLY hot (And I'm a Black girl, so I have to use the really high heat settings), my hair never smells burnt. That, to me, speaks to the quality of the product. C) The floating plates are awesome. D) Hair comes out like silk (and shiny as the dickens!) or with beautiful curls, depending on how you want to use it....which brings me to E) The end of the appliance conducts no heat, so you can use it as an aid to help you curl your hair. I found out the hard way (by burning an impression in my palm) that my other flatiron doesn't do that....

    I'm thoroughly pleased with my purchase, with Folica for sending it so quickly and for having the awesome sale which allowed me to get this WONDERFUL product at a REALLY great price :o)

    My First Real Flat Iron!
    First off..I wanted to say that I was so happy to receive my Solia flat iron today, since I only ordered it yesterday.
    I absolutely love my Solia, worked like a charm, I feel like I just left the salon after getting my hair blow dried striaght.

    Love It
    I love this flat iron. This is the 3rd one I've bought. It doesn't pull your hair.

    Won't Even Make My Normal Hair Straight Or Silky!
    When I first got it, I was just excited to have a new straightener, but this does not get hot enough, I used it for about 3 months and its been on the floor ever since, I went back to my FOUR year old CHI which never fails me---if anyone wants to purchase mine (HARDLY USED) I would gladly sell it...seriously.

    No Doot Aboot It! Tis A Darn Good Straightener Eh!!
    I am not a stylist but I think it's safe to say that I've likely tried out more flat irons than boyfriends! (I really have "gotten around" when it's come to flat irons wink wink) I have been flat ironing my hair upwards of 3-4 times/wk for the last 6 years and was constantly on the look out for something better than what I was using before (insert boyfriend analogy yet again haha). My hair is shoulder length and naturally very thick/ coarse. There is a lot of annoying wave to it that just can't be tamed well enough to look presentable. When it's wet and full of product I can get away with it looking alright but as soon as I get out in the wind or my hair dries I can only describe myself as "Poofy triangle head". The search for the perfect iron for my hair type has included three Babyliss models, the corrioliss sxe, an Ionika, a Cortex, and of course the farouk CHI original. I have also had quickies with the Paul Brown, Hot tools, herstyler and a T.I creative styling iron. The CHI for the last couple of years has been my friend with benefits but as of late I'd been noticing that it wasn't performing nearly as well as it usually did. Therefore I decided it was time to see if I could find something I liked even better. I had noted the Solia in the past however was a little uncertain about ordering from Folica due to the exchange rate and risk of incurring other fee's (ie duty, brokerage with UPS). Recently a friend happened to tell me that she has owned a solia for the last five years and still loves it. I borrowed it long enough to compare performance to my other irons and decided I HAD to have one regardless of it's cost. It surpassed my test in all categories. In total I paid $97.28 CAD for my Solia. This included the 15% off promo, the 2 day UPS shipping and the $9.41 owed in import charges at the door. I thought this was a pretty sweet deal considering an authentic replacement CHI from salon would run me at least $170 (plus 13% sales tax on top). I would highly recommend the Solia (and Folica) to all my Canadian friends who are on the fence about ordering. My only regret is that I ordered mine two days before the mini free sedu iron promo started. GRRRRRR!!! ha ha

    Better Than Otc But Far From Professional Tools
    I bought this flat iron last year to replace my herstyler. The previous reviews were great but I felt disappointed after a few weeks using the product. This flat iron makes my hair dry and it does not deliver the result that I am looking for. It made my hair looked not natural (it'll make your hair flat and does not bounce). And, because it does not have that round shaped body it is very difficult to create a smooth rounded ends. I would not recommend this product as I am very disappointed.

    The pros: better than OTC flat iron.

    Thumbs Up
    I had a CHI Flat Iron for the last 3 years. I loved it but it started to not work as good as it used to. After reading customer testimonials for the Solia, I decided to try it. I love it! I have wavy hair that always seems to be fly away, and this iron keeps it smooth and soft. (Plus I like that it comes in pink!)

    The Product Has Changed
    I bought this straightener about 5 years ago and I loved it. It was perfect. After it burned out after about 4 years, I didn't even want to change. I bought the exact same model. However, when I got it is wasn't the same. The plates are spring loaded or something, so they move. It pulls and breaks my hair every time because of the way the plates are. I always have it at the highest temperature, but it just doesn't seem as hot as the one I had first. I ended up buying a Sedu straightener after just having this one a year....I couldn't stand it anymore.
