    Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium 1"" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron:

    I have curly hair and I've been looking for a good flat iron for along time I've tried the chi the Kardashian flat iron , and the baby bliss is for sir the next flat iron I have ever had. I usually need a spray before I straighten my hair but not with this flay iron.

    Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium 1"" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron:

    I have been straightening my hair for years. I recently cut it short into a medium bob and I used to wear my long hair pin straight, so this iron might have pleased me if I were still wearing it that way, but as is, I like more volume to my hair now, and I like to flip the face frame into my face with a slight curl. This iron is not good for that.

    Someone else mentioned in their review that it gave them "helmet head", and it does. I have owned many irons, both cheap and a bit costly, but this was the most expensive iron I'd ever purchased for myself, because I wanted something of higher quality that would last me many years.

    I feel as though for this price, I expected a lot more in quality. There's no indication of what heat setting you're actually getting, as the settings are 1-50, and I had to put mine on 40 to get any decent kind of heat. It does heat up within a minute or so, so that's nice, but there's no indication of it being ready or what temperature it's really at.

    Over $100, I expected some of these basic functions that $30 irons have! I also didn't care for the way it felt in my hand, very cheap and flimsy, and the plates don't press together effortlessly. I feel like I have to pass through my hair a lot more than I did with much cheaper irons. This saddens me, I really wanted to love this product, it seems to have mostly good reviews, but it just wasn't for me. Will be returning and will try a Chi instead.

          Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium 1"" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron:

          I first researched this flat iron to make sure I was getting my money's worth. I was paying my stylist $50 every two weeks. I'm so glad I purchased this! I am African-American with extremely thick and long hair. I am always skeptical when it comes to flat irons. I absolutely need 450 degrees, anything less would simply look like a blow out for me. The first time I used this I was disappointed and afterwards I learned that it is imperative that you push down on the plates and make sure they touch when using it. After using it the second time, I was amazed! I have had it now for about 6 months and have not been back to the salon since. People compliment my hair all the time and ask who does my hair. I'm not a master hair stylist by any means, but this flat iron will definitely give the impression that a professional has straightened your hair. I'll never go back to the salon. My hair has grown soooo much due to the heat protection from the titanium plates.

          Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium 1"" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron:

          I am transitioning me hair back to natural, meaning that I no longer put chemicals in my hair. I did my research and this was the product that had the best reviews. Though the product did straighten my hair well, I felt like I kept having to force the plates together when straightening my hair. My hair is thick so I am forced to use small sections when straightening and still the plates refused to close without force. The product was descent besides that issue.

          Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium 1"" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron:

          I love this straighter makes my hair smooth shiny and less of a hassle to straighten and curl it. It takes time to get use to very different from a regular straighters super light. The plates don't close down all the way witch is my problem it doesn't straighten some pieces of hair I find myself holing it down really tight just to get those prices of hair. I am returning it for the 1- 1/4 size.

                Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium 1"" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron:

                The iron heats up fast, which is nice if you are in a hurry in the mornings like I usually am! But it is so small that your hands will start to cramp from trying to hold onto the iron. It is a HUGE change in size when switching to this from a commonly used brand. Also, you don't want to place it at a super high temperature setting. Unlike other products, you cannot use your thumb and index finger to grip the end of the iron to add pressure while running through your hair. The hot plates put off so much heat that the back of the iron is blistering hot! Also, a benefit of the product is the plates are supposed to resist corrosion ... I got my iron as a gift for Christmas and it already has a brown residue on the plates. I put a volume booster in my hair while it's still wet and fully dry it before straightening it. Still have yet to figure out what is causing the plates to get dirty. Tried looking up warranty information up through the manufacturer website and was not able to find out any information through there. The placement of the "On-Off" button is on the side and I am constantly turning it off accidentally.

                Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium 1"" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron:

                I have long blonde hair. It didn't work for me because the plates don't close all the way. I have bangs and baby hairs and it was difficult to straighten because it didn't grab the hair and the plates were so far apart it just didn't work. I had to pull my hair straight to get it to straighten otherwise it didn't hold my hair at all, the middle would be straightened but the sides were wavy. The plates also moved from side to side and didn't seem to align. Didn't notice a shine and the results didn't last long. For those reasons I will return. I also tried the sedu diamond edition and will be returning that one as well.

                    These plates have a micron-thick layer of pure Titanium applied to etched metal. The result is an ultra-smooth, extra-durable plate that is chemical/corrosion resistant.

                    Nano Titanium 1" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron provides 50 heat settings up to 450 degrees, so it perfectly styles all hair types and textures. For thick hair, we recommend using a higher temperature setting for best results.
