    Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish Flat Iron:

    I can't get over the compliments I've received after switching to this vs my old hot tools flat iron. My hair normally looks frizzy and wavy even after styling. With the Sleek Finish Flat Iron, my hair looks healthy, shiny and sleek! And with the right products it holds all day. Would definitely recommend this to my friends!

    Seriously have had this curling iron going on 7 years and works amazing the only thing wrong with it now is the cord has twisted and caused some wiring to show and that makes me nervous so I'm looking to by another

      I have thick/curly/frizzy hair used to use a chi, hated it, went to wet to straight because it worked well for my hair type but always had to put so much product and sleep on it to make it flat but this straightener is pretty amazing. Eliminated frizz and straightened fast. Recommend to all the people who struggle w frizz

          Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish Flat Iron:

          This flat iron is awful. Not only is the design bad, because as you use it you turn it off or change the heat settings, it snags my hair. I used a oil spray on my hair which should have made any flat iron run smoothly through but this one still snagged my hair. The grip is not tight, and so I needed to go over each portion more than necessary which does damage. I returned it after two tries.

              This iron is a joke! The on/off and heat control settings are right where you hold the iron. I am constantly turning it off and on - or up and down! Completely worthless!

                I just bought this flat iron today but I will be returning it tomorrow. Whoever designed this iron should be fired! The on/off button and heat setting buttons are right where you grasp your hand...which means you are constantly turning the iron off and changing the heat settings as you are trying to fix your hair! Beyond frustrating!

                    Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish Flat Iron:

                    The construction of this flat iron is terribly frustrating! There is an on/off selection and a [+] and [-] selection to choose temperature. It isn't like a typical button but a long purple strip that either doesn't respond no matter how much you try to click it or it is ultra sensitive and changes the temperatures on you as you attempt to style your hair. I selected this flat iron because the buttons aren't on the interior of the wand. Apparently, that was a big mistake.

                        I love this flat iron! I have been using it everyday for 3+ years and it is amazing. It heats up fast and gets the job done. I love that you can control the amount of heat it provides, because though I prefer the highest 455 degree setting, my friend with thinner hair likes the 400 degrees. My hair always looks shiny and fantastic after using it. I own a CHI and I literally never use that anymore.. John Frieda you have surpassed my expectations with this straightener !! A must have!

                        I gave it as a gift but,however I had to try it. I like that it heats up fast but, it did snag on my hair and I felt that you have to pass through too many times overall, it's not bad for the price

                        • Q:

                          Does this product have a "swivel-cord" because I find myself using my flatiron to create curls and waves ad I hate when the cord tangles up and becomes hard to use when straightening, so I always buy flatirons with the swivel cord and I wanted to check before I purchased this one.

                        • Q:

                          I have this flat iron but I'm unsure what temperature I should use. I have pretty fine highlighted blonde hair. I tried using it on the lowest setting, but my hair did not straighten. I'm a little hesitant to go up in temperature. Is there a range I should be in for having fine hair?
