I have been using my Conair flat iron for about 6 months now. There are lots of things I like about it and just a few things that I don't. The best thing about this flat iron is that it straightens my hair and still leaves it with volume! I want straight hair, not flat hair! Finally someone has got this right!!! I also love that it heats up in 30 seconds and stays as hot as you set it. This makes my hair really smooth and shiny too!
Here's my hair after using (shoulda took a before..opps!)
Ok, so here's the flat iron:
LOVE that's it's 2"! I have never used a smaller one, never saw the point! My hair is too thick and most of the time long, so I never saw the benefit in a smaller on.
It has 25 heat settings!!! And also turbo off and on, for when you're in a hurry--but when am I not? I do have a tendancy to hold this with my thumb too close to the on/off button, so often times, I turn it off when using it!! Ugh! So I don't like that about this. I try to keep my thumbs farther down the handle, but they always manage to work their way up!
It did take some getting used to this one from my previous flat iron--can't remember which one it was. But it was smaller than this one, the Conair is quite large. I was travel with this if I had too, but if I could find a smaller one that I really liked and didn't take me forever to get through all my hair, I would rather take a small one. I don't travel too much, so it's not been a problem for me!
