They do the trick, 7 Aug 2009
I bought these for camping and festivals after seeing terrible reviews for other products. I have fine hair but lots of it and it has a mind of its own. Maybe the product doesnt work if you have thick, wiry hair but it does the trick for me. No, they don't get as hot as my home straighteners, and yes, they do take a bit longer to warm up. So dont buy these for everyday use. But they do work. the only thing i did differntly is that i ran them over the hair more slowly (my corded straighteners work really quickly) - so it did take me a bit longer. And you may want to use smaller chunks of hair. So overall the process will take you longer. But if you are camping you are unlikely to need your hair to be perfect - just tame it down a bit. So for the price i think they are an excellent buy. I also like the interchangeable short handle and the heatproof case which means you can put them in a bag straight after use.
