    Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron:

    It suddenly stopped working less than 1 month after I bought it. Then apparently the company is going to charge me $15 to fix it! I am outraged and will never buy from this company again. Also, the plug is just a 2 prong without a shut-off button. I would have expected more at this price. Very shoddy product.

      Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron:

      I have tried a lot of straighteners over the years. I researched the best straighteners for my very thick, wavy hair and definitely found a winner! From start to finish, it took me 25 minutes to straighten my hair (my hair goes a foot past my shoulders). I divided my hair into thirds and did smaller sections so I wouldn't waste time going over the same section 14 times to get it straighter. And the best thing was not once did I snag my hair while gliding it through! Anyone with thick hair knows what it is like to continually snag pieces of hair! I usually have to use both hands (one holding the iron and one at the end of the iron holding down the hair so it doesn't fall out and to push down to help straighten), but this really is an awesome straightener. One hand for the iron, one hand to hold the tip of the hair. I can't find one thing wrong with this, and it is definitely worth the money!

      I've been a loyal Chi consumer... until now! This flat iron immediately changed my straightening routine. I can't believe I've been missing out for so long! I highly recommend this flat iron, but be careful! You'll want to straighten your hair constantly, and the super high temps of this iron will fry your hair. Enjoy the benefits, but within reason. Highly recommend this tool!

      Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron:

      I used to have a CHI straightener. As soon as I started using this straightener I loved it because of how fast it straightened my hair and how it calmed down the frizz! I live in houston where there is a lot of humidity so this straightener definitely helped with not getting my hair puffy. BUT after a very few uses I noticed my hair was being damaged. I bought a heat protector and got a trim hoping that it would fix the problem. Unfortunately it didn't fix the problem. I will have to buy a different straighter for every day use that will not damage my hair which will probably have to be a ceramic straightener! I do love this straightener and I would have given it 5 stars if it didn't damage hair.

          The heat settings start at 300 degrees which is not stated in the product description. My daughter used it one time. That is all it took to damage her hair more than it has ever been. It feels damaged to the touch and very visible. Even with prior regular use of a flat iron, her hair had never had these results. What a disappointment!

          Only my second time using it. The first time I was ready to take it back to the store. The second time went better. My hair is very thick, somewhere between wavy and curly. It is relaxed but it's overdue. I was able to finish my hair in less than an hour which is a record for me. It also came out very smooth and straight, like a fresh relaxer. It is going to be humid today so I will test it out . That will depend on if it stays or goes. Just don't know what to try next

            Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron:

            This is the best flat iron that I've ever had! And, I've had a few... I have thick, naturally curly hair past my shoulders. It wasn't until recently that I realized that I needed a titanium flat iron instead of ceramic for my hair type. After quite a bit of research and watching some Youtube videos, I thought this one might be the right choice. I was not disappointed. It makes my hair super smooth and silky soft. I also don't need as much heat with this iron to straighten or curl my hair, as I can do both with this iron. I definitely never set it above 400 and I would highly recommend that women new to this iron watch the heat so you don't "fry" your hair. I've been using it during Fall/Winter, so I'm not sure how my hair will look in the humid heat of summer, but hopefully there will be no frizz then either. Overall, I love this flat iron!!!

                My 4 year old BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron stopped heating up after I dropped it one too many times. I decided to by the same one again. It gets the job done quickly.

                One thing to note is there is not an automatic shut off- a benefit for hairdressers who like to keep their irons on all day, but for someone like me who often forgets to turn it off/unplug it when I'm done it can be a hazard.

                This is the BEST straightener I have ever used! I have thick curly hair so when I blow dry it my hair is crazy. This straightener works so well and fast and keeps my hair silky all day long. I even slept on it and went in muggy weather and it was still perfectly straight!!! It is WORTH THE MONEY!!!

                    A:

                    All types and textures of hair are different. Hair that is of a fine texture and colored or highlighted can be fragile, so it's best to use precautions when applying heat. The beautiful thing about the Babyliss Pro Nano Tools is that they have adjustable temperature control. We recommend starting with a medium temperature setting and adjusting higher if you find your hair is more heat resistant. It is always a great idea to also use a thermal protecting styling product when heat styling:

                    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.

                    She could absolutely use the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium 1-1/4" Straightening Iron!

                    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:
