These are lovely, though not big bad boys. Ideal if you want to get a smooth result quickly and efficiently.
I've used these on a variety of people's hair. Thick, thin, long and woolly-frizzy hair. They are good all rounders.
About 15 seconds and they had achieved the required temperature.
Obviously the straightening process can be quicker with wider plates and the glide is important.
Sometimes they required one pass and other times I needed to wait on each section, (two or three passes with the straighteners occasionally.)
The straighteners did an effective job. The results lasted for a day rather than hours.
They are a very basic straightener but fine. They have a lock to keep them together.

which are a little more expensive but are quicker.
If you need no nonsense straighteners these are ones to put on your shortlist.
