Most Helpful Positive Review Did I love it? HECK YES!! lol
Loved this flat iron soo much! I've owned my Jose Eber pro since 2012 and I finally up graded for my birthday! I'm so glad I went with the Nume! It straightens so fast and makes your hair so soft! It snags a bit but only when doing very small sections. I also noticed that it last through the humidity and rain and didn't frizz the only product I had in my hair was a coconut oil spray by OGX so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it! But this flat iron is definitely worth the money I was able to use a 20% off coupon and cash in my points to get an extra 6$ off!!
Most Helpful Critical Review WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
Brought product in June of 2017. Gave me great results for many months. About a month ago my hair started staying frizzy and felt much drier (always use quality protective products). At first I believed it was due to extensive years of straightening and coloring my hair.Mostly used this iron on the lowest setting and never above the next higher setting (2nd lowest) and used much less than previous irons I have had (letting hair grow out so usually pinned up). On a whim I decided to use my old straightening iron. My hair lost the frizz. Reused the NuMe, frizzy hair back. Started snagging too. Protective coating seems to have dissipated way too quickly. My old iron was used daily for many years by myself and often by my daughters. Still works better than the NuMe having only owned a year and used at least 60% less. Though the product does have a warranty, you have to pay for shipping and pay them a $30 or $35 dollar fee to honor the warranty. Won't consider purchasing again.

I bought this after using Chi straighteners for years and i am so disappointed. I did my research thoroughly which is why i switch to this straightener but boy was i wrong. The biggest problem with this straightener is that the middle part of the plate catches your hair SO EASILY while straightening. This causes your hairs to break all the time - not fun having a bunch of tiny hairs from breakage. Other than that, it heats up well and gets the job done. However, the plates are definitely not built as nicely as chi straighteners. Also my Megastar broke after about a year. Chi products last A LOT longer. Don't waste your money on this trash.
Love this straightener!!!!

I've been using it for a while now, love how fast and easy it is to straight my hair. Leaves it feeling smooth and shiny. Definitely best purchase I've made.
Lex from New Orleans, LA
I love this straightener, I've tried all sorts and this by far is my favorite one. It doesn't feel like my hair is burning to a crisp and it gets the job done very quickly.
Liz with Frizz from Leland, NC
I live my Nume! I've spent a lot of money on straighteners! This rates as the best!
I will definitely recommend
Mili from Springfield ma

Michy from Ontario Ca
I bought this straightener a couple years ago when it first came out and I fell in love in the first use it's literally the best straightener I have ever used in my entire life he leaves is so silky healthy Looking and straight, I have very very thick long wavy hair and other straighteners I always have to go through it a couple of times to get it straight and even then I still feel like it's not as free as I'd like but with this one it takes me 1-2 passes and it's straight. The straightener looks really pretty and high and it heats up very hot which is a good thing but it's nice because it has controls in case you don't want it to hot it doesn't ever tug or rip out any of my hair glides through. I have been using Nume products for like 7 years both my straightener and Curler are from here and I love them both.

I don't use a straightener often but wanted a good one and this one is great! Functions really well.
Irene from Miami, FL
Its very smooth and its the best flat iron I've used so far.
I would purchase item again!!!!
Marie from Bell,CA
Leaves my hair shiny and sleeky!!! Love the fast heating of the product!!!
Heather from Ohio
I really wanted to love this flat iron - but my $50 hair straightener outperforms this one even after 4 years of use. For the price tag and the infrared strip I was expecting to get my hair smoother faster and maybe even at a slightly lower temperature. The plates are longer which I can appreciate however I am unable to close the iron firmly enough to give the hair any kind of tension resulting in me having to do tiny sections and multiple passes. This iron skipped and dragged on the color treated sections of my hair which makes it hard to get a smooth finish while straightening or curling the hair. The bottom line is I can get the same (or better) results with your standard drugstore hair straightener for a much more budget friendly price tag.
Pros: Screen Display for Temperature
Soft touch exterior
Cool idea with the infrared strip
Quick heat up time
Cons: WAY overpriced for the performance of the iron
Doesn't glide smoothly through the hair - specifically on color treated sections
Unable to create tension while straightening
Infrared strip allows steam to escape through the top of iron which can burn if your hand is in the way
I'd buy this item again!
Jeannette from New York
Got this for my sister's birthday and she loves it, especially during these uncertain times. Can't wait to get my own!
Decent until it stopped working
Nicole from USA
Bought this to replace my 10 year old Chi straightener. It was a decent straightener for a while but after less than a year of owning this, it has stopped heating up. At the highest temp, 450 degrees, I can still comfortably touch the plates with my fingers so you can imagine how poorly of a job it does at actually straightening hair. I only straighten my hair once, maybe twice a month as well so it's definitely not been "overused".
Ames from Saint Charles, MO
I've always been a fan of Nume products. I've always been broke though and settled for the cheapest ones. But once I noticed the Megastar, I told myself, "I'm saving up to buy that one day." And then the day came, and I finally ordered it. Let me just tell you, this hair straightener is a game changer! My hair is always so silky and shiny every time I use it. And I can adjust the temperature to my liking? I'm completely obsessed. Definitely worth the money.
Roro from Vancouver, BC
Heats up in seconds and keeps my hair straight all day long. I have natural curly hair that takes a few strokes to get one section perfectly straightened. But with this straightener it only takes less than two per section. Best bang for your buck too!! I have the GHD that broke down within a few months. Highly recommend!
Fabulous flat iron
Micki from Michigan
I've used so many flat irons over the past 3 decades and this one is the best yet. I have fine/med, below the chin length hair that I wear in a textured bob. I always have to fight wavy hair that likes to frizz.
This flat iron never pulls or catches my hair and allows me to make even smooth sweeps that take away all the frizz, leaving my hair soft, smooth and shiny. I still believe you also have to use a good quality shampoo, conditioner and hair blower - products that do not damage your hair make a big difference, especially as you age!
Amber from Texas
Works GREAT on my thick hair! I've owned it for over two years now.
LC from Chattanooga,TN
I have had my Nume Megastar since 2012 (when they use to do the extreme discounts. I kid you not if quits today I will buy it full price no hesitation! I use my for wigs most of the time but it flat iron and curls to perfection every time! Even thinking of getting my mom one for Mother's Day(she steals mine a lot)
Best for curly hair
Jenny from California
Best then any other product for sale I've been using it for years. Tried others but I dint get the same results.
Fine hair loves this straightener!
Archigirl from Canada
I've never been much of a girly girl, and being 25 I figured it was about time I invested in some good quality hair tools. I have very fine hair and wanted to find the best product to prevent damage to my hair. This product checked all of the boxes. I wanted temperature adjustability, high quality ceramic plates that don't snag on my hair, the infrared strip and ion booster helps to prevent damage. I looked at ghd, babybliss, and lange before deciding this was the best product for my needs. I really like using it and I can finally create curls in my hair with it, which my old cheap straightener could never do.
I would buy more NuMe Products
Brenda from Undisclosed
I love my new hair straightner leaves my hair smooth silky.
Best flat iron ever!
Zuly from Puerto Rico
I've bought thos flat iron twice and love it sooo much!
Sara from Bettendorf, IA
This is the best straight iron I have ever used by far!!
Liked it better than the curler
Shaz from Euless, Tx
I liked the fact that it didn't pull my hair. It also added shine. I didn't have to do multiple strokes to get the hair straight. It also has a heat setting upto 450 which anyone can adjust as per their preference. But I am used to curl my hair with the straightener for that I think my Chi straightener does a better job
Curling with a flat iron
Bunny from Kansas
Love that my hair holds a curl with this, but I'm not that good at it. I do notice my ends are getting split ends quickly with using this. I do use a heat protectant on my hair before use.
