So much hair...

By tookiemonster

from Secret City

Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold 1 1/4'' Digital Salon Flat Iron:

I have thick coarse wavy hair. I have always used hot tools, in fact I had my last hot tools for 10 years. I still have it and it works great, my mother in law borrowed it so I needed a new one for my new hair cut.

This works great in my hair. I let my hair air dry and then run the flat iron through it. It only takes me about 30 minutes to straighten my whole head. It would probably take less time but I'm a perfectionist.

Works for me!

Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold 1 1/4'' Digital Salon Flat Iron:

One of the great things about this straightener is the fact that I can curl with my hair with it! The only downside is that I have to straighten smaller portions of my hair at a time; or else it will pull and snag my hair. So I make sure I have more patience with this straightener because it does a great job! Would recommend for the more patient folks! Side note: my hair is wavy, somewhat frizzy, and thin.

Pretty great

Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold 1 1/4'' Digital Salon Flat Iron:

It's a decent price for a straightener. Only downside is that it is kinda small for the price. But it heats up well and fast. Also has a 2 hour timer so it will automatically turn off which is pretty handy. Also works well with colored hair and straightens really nice.

Best Uses

    Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold 1 1/4'' Digital Salon Flat Iron:

    I really wanted to love this straightener since I love the curling iron but I have two major issues with it. First, the LES screen never turns off. It will blink "Off" but doesn't actually turn off. Second, the plates snagged so much of my hair. I want able to use it to straighten all of my hair. I gave up halfway through after deciding the pain wasn't worth it. Definitely returning this item.

    Heats up quickly!

    Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold 1 1/4'' Digital Salon Flat Iron:

    Heats up quickly, smoothed my frizzy ends, and is fairly lightweight for the size. I purchased 50% off during the beauty sale, and it was a great investment. The digital temp is easy to read, and the cord is long (bonus!).

    Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold 1 1/4'' Digital Salon Flat Iron:

    I am very pleased with this straightener! I replaced my Fahrenheit flat iron that I had had way too long with this one and I'm glad I did! Made my hair smooth and healthy looking. Perfect size for me and easy to use and I love how it looks too!
