            Comments about NuMe Megastar:

            I purchased this straightener for two reasons: I needed a dual voltage flat iron for an international trip and I was not satisfied with the hot tools straightener I've been using the past couple of years. This flat iron is very well made, has a lot of settings, and heats up quickly. I wish that the temperature increments were in 10 degrees instead of 20, though. Although I have a ton of hair, it is fine, but tends to get frizzy, especially in humidity. I'm still figuring out the best way to use this, but it definitely gets my hair completely straight and it stays straight, even on rainy days. I haven't tried curling my hair with it yet.

                          Comments about NuMe Megastar:

                          I bought this flat iron with my fingers crossed and could not be happier with it. It truly heats up in 30 seconds (or less). The digital temperature readout shows the numbers ticking up as it heats, so you know when it's truly heated up all the way (no sound indicator for this). You can also adjust the heat during/after it has heated.

                          The plates are smooth and snag-free. There is a channel in the middle of one of the plates where the infrared lights sit. The channel edges haven't snagged my hair at all. The matte finish is pretty and hasn't stained or gotten oily. The cord is nice and long. I also appreciate the hinge placement/mechanism - I don't pinch my hand with this flat iron like I have with others.

                          And finally, the performance. While it doesn't appear to be marketed as a "one-pass" straightener, it absolutely does straighten in one pass. I have relatively thick hair with a very stubborn wave - this flat iron took care of it with no issue.

                          My one gripe is that it gave my hair that "flat iron smell" more intensely than others I've used. However, I've only used it twice so far, so I expect that smell to fade with time.

                            This is the best flat iron I've ever used and I had all higher end previously. I bought 2 one for my daughter in the teal color and one for me in matte black. They're so smooth feeling like velvet texture, the 1st think I said to my daughter as we opened was how good the texture feels. My daughter has course hair and the flat iron has no drag (when brushed first). It leaves her hair full of natural shine and last all day. I have very thin wavy hair and I love creating beachy waves and they last for 2 days with minimal humidity and it curled my bangs forward perfectly. New lifelong customer of NuMe brand ❤️

                                You are able to control the temperature of the iron, once it is set to the desire heat, it will stay put till you decide to change it again :)

                                Hi, yes they are. Floating plates have a small suspension system that moves and compresses your hair whilst styling, acting as a cushion. This gives our styling tool the ability to move smoothly, without tugging or pulling out your hair. You will notice it has a slight bounce when you press the plate down; this is the way the plates compensate and release some pressure if you press too hard.

                              I buyed this flat iron here (Ulta.com) and I liked but I have a question. Yesterday, while I was using it the Nume Megastar made a strange sound when I pass this through to my hair not when the flat iron is resting. This is normal? Is the first time that I used. Thanks.

                                It's the best (safest) for thin hair (like mine!). The plate is pure ceramic tourmaline (no metal underneath!) so it heats your hair via infrared (from within) versus the heat from metal burning your hair from outside in. Plus it has a bunch of added extra technologies making it NuMe's creme-de-la-creme. You can read more at https://www.numeusa.com/catalog/products/straighteners/megastar.html.

                                Hope it helps!
