DO NOT BUY!!! SAFETY HAZARD!!!
on 18 June 2013
I bought these straighteners around march time and I have been using them with no problem for around 3 months now, these straighteners have been well looked after and had no obvious signs of damage or wear.
This morning out of NOWHERE - whilst doing my hair, I heard ELECTRIC sparking, i immediately pulled them away from my hair and noticed where the wire joins the straighteners had caught on FIRE and had burnt the whole entirety of the rubber casing away causing the electric wire to be EXPOSED.
I immediately unplugged them and attempted to blow out the small fire then tossed them outside to ensure they were not going to spark/light up again.
Honestly, such a terribly made product. I read up on other reviews/ other website product reviews and realized I am not the only one that this has happened to. This could have caused a house fire, don't take the risk!!!!!!
p.s - This could not have been fuse related, etc.
- I would have written/called the Babyliss manufacturers but unfortunately for me I didn't keep any of the packaging/ the guarantee. They cannot give out a refund/exchange without.
