          I have an expensive Chi flat iron that I purchased last Christmas. Since I have been using it my hair has become dry and dull. I noticed my hair looked shiny when my hairstylist styled my hair. I asked her what brand she used and she said Babyliss. She said she did not like the Chi brand. So I bought a Babyliss and I love it! What a difference from the Chi!

                    I purchased this flat iron a few months ago, and waited to review so that I would know how the flat iron worked over a span of time. One word...AMAZING. I used to purchase Sedu flat irons, which are expensive, and wonderful as well. My Sedu flat iron was going out (after 7 years) and I immediately jumped online to order another one. On a whim, I decided to look at reviews of others...which brought my to Babyliss. It also made me consider trying titanium instead of the ceramic I had been using. This flat iron brought life back to my hair. My hair is shinier than it has ever been! I have course thick curly hair, which normally takes an hour and a half to straighten. This flat iron cut my styling time in half. Over the past few months my hair, which normally has stagnant growth, finally grew. I believe that this is due to the minimal damage to my hair, and no longer having my ends break off. I still love Sedu products, but I definitely recommend flat iron as my number 1! You won't regret trying this one.

                        My hair is very thin and gets damaged when using a straightner on the highest degrees. I finally got my hair to a healthy state but I need a flat iron that I can control and that won't damage my hair. Would you recommend this flat iron for my hair?

                          A:

                          For fine/thin hair, we recommend using a lower or the lowest temperature setting. There are 5 temperature settings on the BaByliss 1-1/4" Straightening Iron: 300, 340, 375, 410, and 450 degrees F. There is a digital readout of the temperature, so you know exactly what setting you are on.

                          We always recommend using a heat protectant styling product on your hair to help protect it from the damaging effects of heat styling. To view our selection of salon professional heat protectant products, please visit:

                      • Q:

                        I had irons that got up to 450 my whole life. Relaxed hair. Black hair, obviously. Took me about 40 min on average to flat iron. I switched to a CHI for all the hype. It's lighter & has a swivel, just a lot of people recommend it. It does not get up to 450 & takes too long, although the results are great. I've seen growth & shine & bounce. I don't think CHI is it for me. I need something that will get me back to my 45 min straighten routine. Will this do it for me with all the benefits? An hour and a half-2 hours is out of the question for my medium length hair I will continue to grow out.

                          Response from BaByliss:

                          "It takes about 60 seconds for the Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron to achieve 450F, much faster than other leading competitors tested, even though some claimed 15-30 seconds. 'Initial heat time' is only part of the story; 'heat recovery time' is even more important to insure consistent performance and provide single-pass straightening – another area where the Nano Titanium irons excel."

                        Will this straightener get my hair pin straight or leave body in it? My Chi would leave too much body and made it look like I didn't even straighten my hair. I'm looking for one that will make my hair look sleek and straight.

                          We recommend using a higher setting on your straightening iron to reduce the body of your hair. The highest setting on the BaByliss 1-1/4" Straightening Iron is 450 degrees F which should straighten your hair no matter the texture!

                          Because of this tool's temperature range, it can really be used to style hair of any type and texture. There are 5 temperature settings on the BaByliss 1-1/4" Straightening Iron: 300, 340, 375, 410, and 450 degrees F. For fine hair, we suggest using one of the lower settings, such as 300 or 340, for best results.

                          Yes, the plates float to ensure even contact and optimal straightening. The Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron can be used to effectively style all hair types and textures! For fine hair, we recommend using a lower temperature setting for best results.

                          Yes, absolutely! This iron features titanium plates that are ultra smooth for less snagging, and they heat quickly and evenly to conduct ultra high heat for less passes. This makes titanium the ideal plate material for those with coarse and thick hair types.

                          Although you can really use any of BaByliss' straightening irons to achieve both straight and curly styles, depending on the technique you use, the BaByliss tool that makes it easiest to achieve a variety of styles is the C Styler, due to its rounded design:
                          http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod3540305

                          The C Styler's rounded plates ensure smooth perfection (no weird crimps or creases in your curls!), and it features the same Nano Titanium material as this straightening iron, so it reaches high, even temps for super quick styling with less passes.

                          We hope this info helps!

                          Because of the long length of your hair, we suggest choosing a larger plate size for quicker styling. The 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" would be ideal for you!

                          Yes, titanium irons are a great choice for those with thick, coarse hair since they heat rapidly and evenly and conduct heat at high temps. This iron's nano titanium plates are super smooth to prevent snagging. The 1-1/4" plate size is ideal for those with longer lengths and/or thick hair since the plates are able to style more hair in less time.
