I purchased this hair iron two years ago after my GHD blew up, and I have to say that it is the best hair tool I ever purchased! Everyone would compliment me on my hair and I have to credit this iron for it. A few people even purchased it after seeing mine. It has a temperature setting which is awesome and the plates just glide over your hair. I found that my hair does not frizz in windy and humid weather when I use this hair iron, and it also gives your hair a lovely shine. The curls are absolutely beautiful and do not fall away easily like when you use other hair tools. I would rate this a ten out of ten. It is a must-have. It also comes in a lovely clutch purse with sectioning clips which is perfect for travelling.
