I am normally quite skeptical so I couldn't believe it when this glided through my hair. This straightener is wonderful! I have got very curly long hair and this straightened my hair in only 15 min. I never used a straightener before, all my friends recommended this product to me. I used it in the evening and was amazed to find them straight the next morning. The result was amazing, my friends did not recongnise me when I went to work. Go for it! It is worth it!
