Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish Flat Iron:

I bought this flat iron to use to straighten my bangs only. I have fine, naturally curly hair and my other flat iron was too large to use on such a small area. The iron heats up fast. The on/off button is on the same panel as the temperature control; making it easy to shut the iron off while in use. I could see where this would be a pain if you were using to straighten your entire head of hair, but quick hand placement adjustments don't make this much of an issue if using for bangs only.

    Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish Flat Iron:

    I love this because it works so well with my thick, curly hair! It doesn't create friz or damage and it's super light to hold. My ends were really damaged so straightening it was a disaster until I got this! Now the ends look smooth and healthy straightened.

    I live the fact it has different heat settings. The only down fall is that if you push the button why using it, it will turn off or turn the heat up or down

    Snagged Hair & Not User Friendly

    Pros

    • Heats Up Fast

    Cons

    • Snags hair

    Best Uses

      Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish Flat Iron:

      The on/off and temperature setting buttons are all the same button on the handle of the straightener, so when you hold it, you push the button, which is annoying. Also, it snagged my hair every time I ran it through. After 1 use, I had to return it. I don't recommend it. I have the John Freida hairdryer though and I love it!

      Don't even try it ...

      By Brittany

      from Sandusky, Ohio

      Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish Flat Iron:

      This straightener is the absolute worst I have ever tried. The placement of the on/off switch and the temperature setting is in the most inconvenient spot - right where your hand holds the straightener! It also makes really weird noises. I'm returning this as soon as I can and upgrading to something else. I really am disappointed in this product.

        Best Uses

          Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish Flat Iron:

          Was given to me as a gift since my previous one was wore out (taking awhile to heat up). I'm probably just going to use my old one at this point. I tried to give it a chance and I've been using it for two months but it doesn't work for my thick wavy hair. I will probably buy another Remington. I mean it does heat up fast and has a swivel cord but it takes even longer for me to straighten my hair.

              The temperature control settings are right where your hands rest when using the product so the temperature adjusts without you realizing it. Poorly placed.

              • Q:

                Does this product have a "swivel-cord" because I find myself using my flatiron to create curls and waves ad I hate when the cord tangles up and becomes hard to use when straightening, so I always buy flatirons with the swivel cord and I wanted to check before I purchased this one.

              • Q:

                I have this flat iron but I'm unsure what temperature I should use. I have pretty fine highlighted blonde hair. I tried using it on the lowest setting, but my hair did not straighten. I'm a little hesitant to go up in temperature. Is there a range I should be in for having fine hair?
