This is a great way to straighten your hair by heat and brush. It has settings to control temperature. It doesn’t take a high heat to work so start very low until you are comfortable with the temperatures. I love it and would rather use this than a heated hair straightener or a blow dryer with a roll brush to pull down on!!! It gets hot very fast not much wait time which is fabulous and it’s barely used but in great shape. Paid $145.00 plus tax for this.Always remember to unplug and never leave plugged in.
