Good straightener Overall,
This review is from: BaByliss 2038U Pro 230 Radiance Sleek Straightener (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)Having long, dark course hair, I'm well versed in using hair straighteners.
I think I really need a salon quality straightener, that gets hot enough to really do justice to my hair, but I haven't spent the money thus far. So I was really comparing this to other off-the-shelf straighteners.
In terms of the overall product:
This comes up with a carry case, clips, straightener, and pad to set the straightener on. The case and clips were a waste for me (they call the case luxury, but I'd call it an ordinary case - nothing special). I don't use them at all. The pad is good as I can set the straightener down without burning anything around.
Features I like:
1. Variable temperature setting - this is really nice since it helps with different hair types, and the hottest does the trick for me.
2. De-tangling pins: These are provided for different lengths of hair. I use the "thick hair" setting and it works great - no tangles for me.
Features I don't like:
1. Steam feature: I found this hard to fill up (there is a small hole like an iron). In my one and only attempt, I found it cumbersome and unneccessary. The high heat setting seems to be fine for me.
So overall, I continue to use this straightener. It works well for me on a daily basis and I'd recommend it.
