    Comments about Agave Healing Vapor 1-1/4 Inch Iron:

    This product is very complicated. The first use is easy but then you have to change the cartridge. You have to refill constantly to the the steam. Leaves my hair feeling sticky. It does not straighten very well. Bottom line, It works for a couple months and the the money is down the toilet.

      Comments about Agave Healing Vapor 1-1/4 Inch Iron:

      I purchased both the Cool Tools Argon Vapor 1 ¼ in flat iron then 3 weeks later this Healing Vapor tool.
      While shopping at ULTA I examined both tools and they looked pretty much the same, one used Argon, the benefits of which are legend and the other used Agave. I felt the prowess must lie in the engineering of the tool. They look very similar so why should I pay 60 plus bucks more for the Healing Vapor tool, right?
      The Hot Tool one can leave an indentation mark in your hair at the point where the vapor comes out. It did an ok, acceptable job of smoothing, my hair neither looked, nor felt much better than with some other very high end flattening irons that use no steam.
      I could not help but wonder id the Healing Vapor Agave tool would be any better. Agave for hair!? This could be some BS, right? I caved and I purchased it. WOW so much better than the Cool Tool,my hair looks shinier, smoothed out quicker, felt conditioned (yaay). I try not to spend more than I need to, but this is the superior product for me. I will say too that it steams out a bit more than the Cool Tool did and the shape of the vapor holes strip is a little different than the Cool Tools counterpart. BTW my hair type only needs Med. setting heat. Hope this helps.

          Comments about Agave Healing Vapor 1-1/4 Inch Iron:

          I am an African American woman with unrelaxed, natural hair. My hair is about 16 inches long when straightened and this flat iron works beautifully. With one pass through each section I can flat iron my hair rather quickly. I think many people that have complaints aren't reading the instructions before using. The cartridge should be filled with the agave oil and then placed back into the flat iron BEFORE heating it up. I can flat iron my entire head with one full cartridge of agave oil. I don't mind the price tag on this iron because it works and the results are AMAZING! I would purchase the Agave Vapor Iron again in a heartbeat.

              I have super damaged bleach blonde hair, it is thick and very frizzy. This is the ONLY flat iron that can tame the frizz and keep my hair straight all day. The oil is lightweight and doesn't make my hair greasy. I think this iron has actually helped to correct the texture of my hair! It's expensive, but well worth the cost. I use it in conjunction with the Tresemme Platinum Strength leave-in spray and the Aquage Beyond Shine spray.

              Comments about Agave Healing Vapor 1-1/4 Inch Iron:

              This aa very well put together machine. With previous hair straighteners my hair would get caught between the plates and the plastic holding the plates on and it would pull my hair out. My hair doesn't get caught with this at all and it's perfectly straightened with one pass on high heat and is super shiny and soft even without the oil. The only downside is with the design, most the agave oil you put in seems to evaporate even when you don't push the vapor button. In not sure is this is normal for vapor irons as this is my first. I just put in enough oil for that use. Don't fill it up! Cuz half of it will just evaporate away while you are letting it warm up.

              Amazing product

              Comments about Agave Healing Vapor 1-1/4 Inch Iron:

              I could not be happier with this product! Prior to this purchase, I had been using the same flat iron for years and when it finally broke, I decided to try a different one. I was hesitant at first because I tend to stick with what I am familiar with, and when it comes to my coarse, dry, unmanageable hair, having the right flat iron without spending a large amount is key. However, after reading great reviews and knowing Ulta has a great return policy, I decided to give it a try, and I am SO glad that I did. As I said above, my hair is extremely coarse and dry from having straightened it for 10+ years and coloring it from time to time. Whenever I straightened it with my old straightener, it would look great for the first hour, but after being out and about all day, it would become frizzy and just look bad to the point where I would just always end up putting it up in a bun. Now, after only two or three uses, my hair is so much more sleek and shiny! I can wear it down all day and all night and it still looks as good as when I left the house. I literally cannot stop touching my hair throughout the day because of how much healthier, softer and smoother it feels. This is truly an amazing product that did wonders for my hair. The only negative is the added cost of having to keep purchasing the bottles of agave,and they do run out fairly quickly--but honestly it is so worth it for how much better I feel about my hair. It still works as a regular straightener without the agave, but the agave is really what makes the difference. Also, when the straightener starts to heat up and the agave starts to steam out of it, it gives off an initial weird, almost fishy, smell but it definitely does not make your hair smell like that so it's all good. Bottom line, I love this straightener and I would highly recommend!
