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

    I wasn't too sure about paying so much when there were less expensive options. But I'm so glad I did. The fact that I could change the heat settings was the best feature. My biggest fear was scorching my locks. And I have not. So happy. I'd use this brand any day!!!!!

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

    I'm AA and have natural hair that I wear straight. The flat iron did straighten my hair, but I didn't have that silky feeling that I have when I use my H2Pro. Also, this product left me with heat damage that I've never had with my old flat irons. The results is irreversible. I won't be able to wear my hair natural for years now.

    It's ok but a little disappointed...

    By Candygirl

    from San Jose, CA

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

    I bought this flatiron based on the high reviews and the fact that it had titanium plates. My old flatiron is ceramic. Anyway, it gets my hair straight but the blue paint has started to chip & peel around the plates. Given the price of the iron, I'd expect higher craftsmanship.

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

      No one is more surprised than I am that this tool did not work on my hair. As hot as it got, it didn't straighten my hair easily. I went over it. My hair is wavy naturally, thick but not overly so. It is colored. It worked really well on my 93 yr old mother. She has virgin white hair. Worked like a champ. Just a huge disappointment, but I was fortunate I was able to return it to Ulta and was reimbursed.

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

      Ive owned a chi and herstyler hair straighter. Babyliss is the best one I've ever owned I straighten my hair about 4 times a week. It leaves my hair frizz free and feeling very silky in just one stroke no need to do more. I have long thick hair. It takes me about 15 minutes to straighten all my hair. The only thing I can complain about is it doesn't have auto shutoff and the on/off button feels like its cheap quality.overall I will replace for the some one in future. I've owned my straighter for 6 months now and it's still working just like it did the first time I used it

              Used the Babyliss for the first time today, & loved it. It isn't hard to find the setting that works for you. I know I need a high setting for my thick, coarse hair, so set it accordingly. It is true that only half the length of the plates touch when you press them together, but it doesn't seem to be an issue. I used Got2B Guardian Angel flat iron balm on each section before I ironed. This flat iron did not make my hair flat. It had nice body, and was smooth and shiny :)

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

              When I first got this flat iron, I LOVED it. My hair straightened so easily and stayed straight all day. I've never been able to keep my hair straight all day! However, that only lasted about a month. After a while, it start doing what all my other flat irons had done. It would snag and break my hair off... it would split the ends and severely damage my hair even on a low temp. My hair would no longer stay straight. I stopped straightening my hair for about 2 weeks hoping by not applying heat to my hair, it would restore some of it's health. I was wrong. Not sure if it's 100% the flat irons fault or mine. Either way, their was a lot of hype when I first got it...Now I'm not so sure.

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

                  I did read the online reviews about this and other straighteners before I purchased this. I was already leaning toward buying this and the master stylist at Ulta Beauty was a big help.I have fine, frizzy hair that is shoulder length, and I love how this is a longer, thinner straight iron. It does not "catch" my hair which I have really been looking for in a flat iron. I put it on about 20-25 and it straightens easily with only 1-3 passes to get my desired style. This takes way less time than I have ever had with other expensive flat irons. I have had Chi and GHD, and they never work this well. Even though I don't wash my hair every day, I still use a flat iron to touch it up. My hair feels healthier since it does not "catch" and goes through my hair so easily. I don't mind paying extra if it's going to do a great job and take less time.

                      There is no indicator when the Nano Titanium Straightening Iron has reached its desired heat – but it does so very quickly, reaching its highest setting of 450 degrees F in just 60 seconds.

                      A:

                      The ultra-thin profile of the BaByliss Nano Titanium 1" Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron makes it exceptionally lightweight and easy to work with. Its extra-long 5" plates allow for wider sections of hair to be straightened, boosting speed and effectiveness while eliminating hand fatigue and increasing styling flexibility. The plate size is the only difference between this tool and the Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron. We hope this extra info helps!

                      This flat iron features ultra-smooth titanium plates and 50 different heat settings, so that you can adjust the temperature depending on your hair type and condition. We always recommend using a heat protectant styling product prior to heat styling, no matter what your hair type and texture.

                    Can you curl & wave your hair with this product? I bought the 1 1/4 inch BaByliss & it doesn't really curl my hair or is this line only made to straighten?
